Recipe #1

7up and Raspberry Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients:

1 cup fresh raspberries
1/2 banana
1/2 cup 7up or Sprite
1/2 cup ice

Directions:

Blend the cubes with the banana on high speed until slushy. Add the raspberries and 7up but blend on low for 20 seconds so the raspberries are not highly blended but sill in pieces. A very invigorating taste.

I know this isn’t exactly cooking, but I thought I’d start easy. Yeah… easy… sure. I totally suck at using my blender when it comes to ice. SUCK, SUCK, SUCK. Attempting this recipe tonight was no exception. I ended up with round ice cubes. I chose this recipe because I had raspberries and it didn’t have any yogurt in it. I hate yogurt. I didn’t care for the result, lack of blender skills be damned. It was the banana that killed it for me. I guess I’m not a smoothie gal.
