The Smoothie That Eats Like A Meal

imageI suppose that’s exactly what a smoothie is *supposed* to do!

I try not to use plastic straws on a regular basis, but sometimes, I make a smoothie that is so thick that without a straw, it gives me a really awkward mustache (which, BTW, my Italian genes have covered… I don’t need the help!), which I would get from drinking straight from the cup. Thus, today’s need for a straw.


  • Mango cubes
  • Blueberries
  • Half of a green apple
  • Peanut butter
  • Splash of soy milk
  • Carrot juice
  • Bit of cinnamon
  • Bit of vanilla extract (helps sweeten can otherwise be kind of bitter concoctions)
  • One shake of cayenne

Verdict: Thick, nutty, delicious. I have a feeling I’ll be grazing on this smoothie throughout the morning.

    You might get a titanium straw from Think Geek. Then you don’t have to worry about it!
