Steve is a smoothie addict. I think his breakfast, lunch and dinner would subsist of smoothies if he'd let himself. I like them too, mostly after the gym on a Saturday morning. But Steve definitely keeps up his smoothie consumption during the week, which means our grocery bills are continually weighed down with the frozen peaches and strawberries he buys to make these concoctions.
I figure an addiction of this kind is one we can support for the time being, but it does make me a little sad on the weeks I pay for groceries, when the icy cold bags of fruit are piled up on the conveyer belt. Oh, the baking supplies I could buy at Whole Foods in exchange for the fruit! Sigh.
Strawberry & Peanutbutter Smoothie
Recipe by Lazy Susin & Kookybites
Handful of frozen strawberries
2 ice cubes
Orange Juice, as needed
1-2 tsp of peanutbutter (smooth, not chunky!)
Add ingredients to the blender. Start with less juice and add more as needed. Crank the blender up to high and see how it goes. Add more orange juice to get the desired thickness.
