Experimental Cooking Tuesdays a is a regular feature where I attempt to cook and create something edible. I’m not a trained chef at all, and I hope that by sharing my experiences with you, that everyone can learn a little more about cooking.

Experiment #3: Strawberry Smoothie

I tried Jamba Juice for the first time this past summer on a trip to California. My thoughts: tasty, but overpriced!

You can make your own smoothies at home with a blender, all for pennies on the dollar that you would spend elsewhere.

Here’s a super-simple recipe for creating a fat-free smoothie for both you and a loved one. Ehhh, on second thought, just drink it all yourself, because it’s DELICIOUS. Then tell them to go make their own!

How-to after the jump:

Ingredients:

1 Cup Frozen Strawberries
1 Cup Fat-Free Vanilla Yogurt
1/2 Cup Fat-Free Milk

Remember, this is for two servings. If you want a smaller portion, just half the ingredients.

Tools:

Measuring Cups
Blender

Instructions:

  • Measure ingredients
  • Dump into blender
  • Blend
  • Pour into cups
  • Enjoy

Lessons Learned:

  • Make sure everything gets blended through. You might have to stop the blender, and use a spoon to mix things up, and blend again.
  • While my blender may not be a Blendtec machine, it still gets the job done. In fact, I have no idea how I came to own a blender. Anyone know how I got my blender?
  • This particular combination was DELICIOUS and comes with a high recommendation. Other combinations aren’t as good, but I’ll cover some other smoothie combinations in a future post.
