Let's Make Pop Star Smoothies!

Congratulations! You followed Cookie's advice and bought yourself some organic produce for a reasonable price. But is it reasonable when organic goes bad faster than conventional and you end up throwing away half? Nope. Does it make you wonder what they've done to the conventional produce to increase it's appearance and longevity? Yep.

Sometimes the family runs through fruit so fast that you'll need to make another trip to the neighborhood fruit stand. But there are days when the sad little creatures sit in your fruit basket on the counter and wither away like yesterdays pop star.

This leads me to my topic "How is fruit like a pop star?"

  1. When they're sweet and juicy, everyone wants them
  2. The smallest blemish is the biggest deal
  3. The first sign of a little aging and whamo, they're cast aside for the newest crop of sweet young things
  4. Being organic and natural is a bit trendy, but let's face it, they're just not as pretty
For these reasons, I suggest slicing and freezing them for later in order to preserve their potential. Hey, this works for fruit too! Let's make Pop Star Smoothies!

The Britney Spears Smoothie

  • Frozen banana slices
  • Fat Free Vanilla Yogurt
  • Low Fat Coconut Milk*

What's the matter, don't have any coconut milk? Just get your people to get you some or use any other kind of milk, just as long as it's white for gosh sake.

Vanilla Ice Smoothie
  • Frozen banana slices
  • Ice cubes
  • Protein Powder (We at Fetch like Trader Joe's brand, but powdered milk will do too)
  • Dash of Vanilla Extract
  • Dash of Ground Cinnamon
I like to say "dash"

The NSync Smoothie

  • Frozen Nectarine or Peach slices
  • Silken Tofu
  • Lemonade
  • Ice
Blend together and keep in the closet for 8-10 years.

Miley Cyrus Smoothie

  • Frozen Strawberries
  • Frozen Blueberries
  • Vanilla Fat Free Yogurt
  • Orange Juice
This is so delicious, it will make you want to lap dance all over a 44-year old man!
