Blueberry Banana Smoothie!

Friday, March 07, 2014

It's no secret that green smoothies can make even the bravest person think twice before taking a sip. I guess you could just call it human nature. I mean it is green. 


I personally am a huge fan of green smoothies and think they're really pretty, but every time I make one, my dad cringes and asks me, "How do you drink something that looks so disgusting?". (Haterz are my motivaterz :) )


I once did a Science Fair project that tested the idea that you drink/eat what looks pretty. I gave people 3 cups of Sprite, each died different colors.

The Sprite that was yellow-colored was voted down seeing as it looked pretty unappetizing (one person said it looked like pee, but we won't go into that theory).

Anyways, the moral of that project is that we do eat/drink things that look pretty. When something has a nice color, we tend to lean towards it. This idea was the basis to my 'make a pretty colored smoothie that's not green' quest.

Enter blueberries.


My family picked bag-fulls of blueberries last Summer when we visited North Carolina, and they've been sitting in our freezer just begging to be used.


So, I took my favorite banana smoothie recipe and added blueberries.

Hello tangy blueberry taste and gorgeous purple smoothie. Even my dad thought this smoothie looked edible, so I think this one's a winner.

A little late, but did you watch the Oscars? I really wanted Leo to win. (Hence the fake prayer circle my father and teddy bear made.) Ellen put on an amazing show, and JLaw was hilarious as per usual!



Have you done any DIY projects lately? I made a collage this past week. Like a real life one. Not one from an app to post on Instagram. It's purtyyy cool!


Any big weekend plans? I have the SAT tomorrow! Eeep!

  3. Love your collage :) & the fake prayer circle- dying! Also it's above 40 degrees here for the first time basically all winter so I'm putting on a bikini and drinking this. This is what I give for living in Chicago. Come summer I will regret ever praying for warmth when it's 100 degrees. Think it's time for me to move lol
