Take that title as a warning because you might not enjoy my sick sense of humor.
But lately I’ve been doing a lot of Smoothie breakfasts. It’s usually ice, a banana, some Vega Powder, a fistful of leafy greens and a dollop of the nut butter of my fancy with occasional bonus ingredients (other fruits, ginger, spices, sea weed and algae).
A lot of it is based on my whims that day. So when I narrate my pretend cooking show- as I’m sure you often do- I end up coming up with disgusting titles for individual smoothies based on the color they turn out to have.
Some highlights have been:
And Blood in the Saddle. (With the bonus ingredient beet.)
A note about beets, I’ve always said whenever you eat beats be sure to make a note of it in your diary. Because the next time you see them you’ll have a brief moment where you think you need to go to the doctor. According to Beth, Red Velvet cake can also have the same effect.
And on a final note can I just say how much I love my Vita Mix. I used to think a few ice cubes at the bottom of a smoothie was unavoidable. But since using this machine everything gets blended together to a velvety smooth texture. Also I love the sense of danger it give me when I use. The pitcher really just rests on the base, there is no locking mechanism and it’s super easy to do this:
Don’t do this. It’s just an illusion. My hand is actually on the side of the machine.
What sold me on the machine originally was a review from a friend. She told me that she had lost the rubber top to a spatula in the bender and when she stopped it to dig it out, it had disappeared completely.
