This last post on summer recipes is dedicated to my Uncle Bill. He passed away yesterday.
Uncle Bill was a cook for the military for over 30 years. He could do just about anything in the kitchen, but he could really throw down on some ribs.
He was a kind man and I will miss him.
Rest in Peace Uncle Bill 😦
I am not a health conscious person at all. I think folks should be able to eat what they want. However, I know that’s not practical. I guess we should incorporate fruits and vegetables into our meals, at some point :o/
I’m still working on “eating healthy” (blah). I found this smoothie recipe in a local paper. I Googled and I guess this drink is popular with health folks, which ain’t me.
It seems like a fun drink to try this summer though 😉
Purple Monster Fruit Smoothie
Ingredients: 2 frozen bananas, skins removed and cut in chucks, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1 cup orange juice, 1 tablespoon honey (optional), and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional).
*You can substitute the orange juice with any mix of juices or even soy milk. The soy milk adds more of a milk shake quality than the juice does.*
Directions: Place bananas, blueberries and juice in a blender, puree. Use honey and/or vanilla to taste. Use more or less liquid depending on the thickness you want for your smoothie.
