I really like smoothies, I used to work on campus just two doors down from a Smoothie King. It was wonderful having a healthy snack so close by but for some reason I never made them for myself at home. Smoothies are so easy to make that I can't believe I didn't make them sooner!! REALLY easy. You could add any fruit you like or if you want to make things super super easy, I'm talking two ingredients easy, just pick up a couple of cans of Jumex the next time you are at the store. The Jumex was very cheap at my local Wal-Mart, $0.38 a can. Homemade ice is free, so the total cost for this recipe is $0.38 per smoothie!! Two cans of nectar along with the ice was enough to fill our blender. The Jumex is not super sweet but I really liked it for breakfast and thought it was a refreshing and healthy start to the day.
Lincoln and Carson were smoothie fans too. Carson hasn't figured out that you need take breaks when drinking a frozen drink and kept giving himself 'Ice cream headaches.' It was humorous to watch him sipping away and then grab his head, but keeping on drinking. He wouldn't let me take the smoothie away and didn't understand that it was what was causing his head to hurt, silly little man! I guess he thought I wanted his smoothie for myself :)
