During the summer my mom and I were a bit obsessed with making smoothies. We had a lot of fruit that we weren't eating fast enough so throwing it into the blender was the best choice. We had a lot of trial and error (including one infamous smoothie that I made with blueberries as the main ingredient that went from a vibrant purple to a brown sludge the longer it sat) but continued anyway.
Smoothies are delicious and are a healthy choice for people on the go. Today Jess and I broke out our new blender (thanks again, Mom and Dad!) and made a grape and clementine smoothie which tastes absolutely delicious. Here's what you'll need*:
6oz of yoplait french vanilla yogurt (aka one individual cup you can buy from the store)
1 bundle of green grapes
1 pinch of salt
1 carton of milk
*Add ice if you like it chilled
Dump the french vanilla yogurt and grapes into the blender. I honestly don't know how much milk to use, I eyeballed it to my liking; add in milk and blend. Open the two clementines, removing as much leftover pulp as you can, and throw those in. Add the pinch of salt and blend once more. We alternated between the blend and pulse options to get the consistency we wanted. You, of course, can add more fruit if you like but I believe this is a winning combination.
Pour into a cup and enjoy!
If you ever want a good laugh, come see me. I find enjoyment out of a lot of simple things.
