File under 99 Cent Deal of the Day. The Chef picked up one pound packaged fresh strawberries at this 99c only Store yesterday. Let's make a 99 cent smoothie.
They always carry three of the main ingredients the Chef likes to use: soy milk, bananas and yogurt. The Chef usually buys several packages of strawberries to ziplock freeze for the future; just remove green stems and slice in half. They are also selling seedless red grapes which freeze well and add nicely to any smoothie (it's the Chef's sister's secret smoothie ingredient -- thanks, Denise.)
1 cup of strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1 small 6 - 8 oz. yogurt (any flavor, except chocolate!)
1 cup soy milk (vanilla or plain)
1/2 cup of grapes (optional)
3 - 6 cubes of ice (optional - if you are using frozen fruit, okay to omit)
Oh come on, you don't need to read this part --
just throw it all in and blend until smooth. Duh!
