Good eats: The Mary Catherine smoothie

Because she inspired me with her comment about how to please picky eaters, this smoothie will forever be christened “The Mary Catherine smoothie.”

I went to the grocery store Wednesday with two dilemmas: First, where did they keep the frozen fruit? Second, would I be able to find a cheap blender?

The first problem turned out to be worse than the second. There was no sign for “fruit” in the frozen section like there is for “vegetables.” They had dinners, pizzas and ice cream, but no fruit.

Finally I found the frozen strawberries, tucked in with the pie shells. I guess they think fruit is only good to put in pies.

The blender dilemma ended quite well, I must say. They actually had a single-serve blender for $13.84. It’s small and compact and, as I found, makes an excellent smoothie.

It’s efficient, too – you can drink it straight from the glass you blend it in.

(Please excuse my just-worked-out look.)

Wait, what was that?

Oh yeah, the recipe.
The Mary Catherine smoothie
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup fat free plain yogurt
1/2 cup pineapple orange juice
1/2 tbsp. honey

Put in blender. Blend.

This took about five minutes to make, and it was delicious. You could use any kind of fruit or fruit juice, I would think, and it was creamy and thick, even without bananas (which I loathe).

So thanks, Mary Catherine. You just changed my life.
