This smoothie recipe takes me back to when I broke my jaw long before Smoothie King, Jamba Juice, Juiceland, etc. existed. My mouth was wired shut for six weeks, so I was on a liquid diet for the entire period. Needless to say my blender became my best friend. Given the situation, plus the fact that I’m such a creature of habit there were a lot of different combinations tried in the blender all for the sake of serving moopbrown tendencies like chitlins for new years, steak for birthdays, etc. No need to ask, the answer is yes the chitlins, steak, et all had their turns in the blender and no I would not recommend you try these. As you’ve already imagined, it ain’t a good look. I took one for the team on this.
We are a dairy free household so I used almond milk, but feel free to substitute cow’s milk if that’s your preference. I top mine off with cinnamon to add a bit more sweetness (honey or agave would well also), The health benefits of cinnamon are numerous.
