Smoothies cheap and good
This is my smoothie. It's healthy, cheap and quick. Cheap. Did I mention that? Yeah, if you're tired of paying 5 bucks for a smoothie at Jamba Juice, do this:
8-10 ice cubes
1-2 tbsp orange juice
5-6 frozen strawberries
1/2 to 1 cup water
Dump it all in the blender and rock. Actually, I got ice first, then bananas, then water and OJ, then strawberries. Any other order, particularly the first drop, will get my Osterizer stuck.
I refined this mix to taste as close as possible to my favorite Jamba flavor: Orange Appeal. Slightly tart, but strong on the sweet side. I finished off my big mug and now I'm shivering at 12:23 p.m. in Honolulu. Awesome.
