Oh my~!


So okay. When it comes to cooking? I can. Sorta.

If I want soup?

I open a can and heat the contents.

If I want really good fried chicken?

I go down the road and get it from the best restaurant in the middle of nowhere, put their chicken on a plate, and add some parsley.

Japanese Fusion?

Up the road at this restaurant that specializes in it they'll pack up the individual contents so you can assemble it later. I made the tea.

But even I can make this and not mess up.

In a blender that can crush ice (and not start smoking after the first iced drink),


one & 1/2 cup whole frozen blueberries

one & 1/2 cup plain, non fat yogurt

one ripe banana

appx. 1 1/2 tablespoonfuls of lemon juice

one spoonful of table sugar (like a package from the restaurant)

pulse on the "ice crush" button until the whole thing turns purple with deep purple speckles (ie don't leave any of the blue berries whole or ever partly whole.

If the result is too thick you can add just a teaspoonful of non fat milk.

Pour into a tall glass or a bowl.

This should make enough for a glass per person - 4 healthy servings or six if you put it in a bowl

The stuff that we've been making is thick like a milkshake. It's so thick that if you leave out the milk it's alot like soft serve ice cream.

However ,

(unlike ice cream)

this is full of vitamin C, anti oxidants, vitamin A, protein, folates AND it's good for your kids to eat as you get at least 2 to 3 servings of fruit.

And fiber.

It's called a Banana Blueberry Smoothy.

I'm calling it a Barney Blueberry.


Thank you Martha Stewart and the folks at EveryDay Food Magazine.

See I can cook.
