My favorite new smoothie

If you haven’t been to Border’s lately, then head on over. I’m sure you’ve heard by now that they are going out of business. Right now their sale ranges from 25-50% off. Most books are 25% off, blue rays are 50%! The already on sale section at the front of the store is an additionally 25% off! I was lucky enough to find one of these deeply discounted books laying randomly on a shelf in another section. It’s called “Cool Smoothies” and it was on sale for $3.99 + 25% off= $2.99, woohoo!!

I already tried out one of the smoothie recipes titled Peanut Butter-Banana Dana and it is very delicious. I don’t have a photo, but here is the recipe:

1 cup low-fat or soy milk, I used Almond

2 bananas, peeled and sliced

1/4 cup of peanut butter, I winged it here and probably used more than the recipe called for, but YUM!

Add 1/2 to 1 cup of ice cubes and blend until smooth.

A bonus? Each page of this book offers little tidbits of knowledge. Here is the info for this recipe…..

“Americans eat more than 700 million pounds of peanut butter per year. It takes about 850 peanuts to make an 18-ounce jar of peanut butter.”

I also made a watermelon frosty today. Check it out……

I got this recipe from the Healthy Happy Life blog, she has tons of great recipes on there!


2 1/4 cups frozen watermelon cubes
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 large lemon, squeezed , or use 2 limes-I used lemon juice
1 banana

Blend and serve with watermelon slices as a garnish. You can spice it up by adding two shots of tequila, or vodka.
