A Delicious Smoothie

Thanks to a bumper crop, I recently received a few grapefruit. Problem is, I’m not a fan of the stuff. So, here’s one way I found to use it – a grapefruit smoothie! Delicious and nutritious (more so, depending on the ingredients used). The recipe is below, should you want to indulge.

Grapefruit Smoothie

1/2 grapefruit
2 Clementine oranges (adjust accordingly if you use navel oranges)
8 scoops of Bluebell light ice cream (give or take – I used a small ice cream scooper)

Combine all in a blender and pulse until smooth. If chunky when pouring, stir with a spoon. Enjoy! 🙂
Serves: 1

I have seen (on the web) a similar one to this recipe using crushed pineapple. So, this recipe is fairly flexible depending on what’s in the cupboard.

This is one delicious way to eat that fruit! 😀

Have you another idea of what I can do with this grapefruit? Or, another great smoothie? Do share.

Hungry like a tired wolf

As I don’t want my blog to get stagnant, I’m doing a quick post. I’m still a bit tired, so if things sound kind of wonky-weird, that’s why. This latest time chance has once again knocked me for a loop. (Side thought: I know why we have the time changes, but it’s a real pain in the butt, and begs me to ask “why can’t we just keep it the same?”.)

Anyway, I’ve to tell you of a site that’s been amusing me in the kitchen lately. The company is Betty Crocker, a name that has been known throughout the baking world for years, but their recipe site is truly divine! The recipes are fairly easy to easy-peasy, accented with great pictures of what the finished product should look like, and the food comes out quick and delicious!
One of the latest recipes I’ve made is the Quick Fruit Cobbler.

Doesn’t it look delicious? It’s basically pie filling, biscuit mix, and whipped cream on top (though you don’t even need the whipped cream on it). It’s not overly sweet, though you can sweeten it up with vanilla, or spice it up with nutmeg. I made it the regular way, and let’s just say, it didn’t take long to eat up the entire dessert! I’m pretty sure I’ll be making it again sometime soon. And, that’s what this whole recipe site is like. I’ve yet to come across a “loser”, but I’m constantly encouraged to try more. (and, yes, there are a lot more recipes besides sweets, I just chose to highlight one of my latest successes…he-he!)
For the cobbler recipe, click here. To explore the site from the beginning, click here. Just one bit of quick advice, to click when you’re hungry, else you may be subject to drool or worse. 😉

In other news, I shall be reading again soon…two separate books (one, I won! yeah, me! The other, requested library order just come in)…more on this story later.

Until later, peeps…happy cooking, baking and eating! And, if you do have extras, you can donate them to a worthy cause, namely me. Yummy!
