Wow, I just realized how long it has been since I last posted on here! I have still been cooking up a bunch of different food and taking pictures of it but I haven’t found the time to type it up! I saw that I had a few drafts from A YEAR AGO and decided I wanted to finish and post them! A year ago when I was working as a Fitness Specialist for a tech company in Austin, Texas I came up with a few smoothie ideas we were going to use at our deck party. This company had these things called “Deck Parties” once every few months for the employees where they would serve free beer, wine and food (like a work happy hour). At this specific one, an intern had created a bike that would generate electricity by pedaling. We decided to hook it up to blenders and have people compete to make smoothies! I do not have pictures of the actual smoothies but I do have a few of creating them! These were the smoothies I came up with, the audience thought the ingredients sounded odd but they got to sample all of them and loved them! Oh, and all the directions are the same, throw in a blender and blend until smooth!
