I am always amazed at what can go into a smoothie without anyone noticing. I have hidden some pretty crazy things in my smoothies. Things that my little brother and sister would never eat even if their life depended on it. Most of the time they turn out really good…..except for when they don’t. For example, I recently made a smoothie and added a stray grapefruit that had been lying around. No one in my family has ever liked grapefruit so I had never really tried it before. I found out the hard way that grapefruit is a little bitter.
It was an honest mistake but, let’s just say that I will not be using grapefruit again anytime soon. With as much cooking and experimenting as I do, there has to be a certain percentage that doesn’t turn out well. I think it is important to be able to laugh at one self and aknowledge that you are only human when you fail. I thought that I would play it safe today and make a simple smoothie. I couldn’t decide what to call it. I couldn’t even remember what day it was. What is today….?
