I’ve recently been blending away trying to get the recipes just right for this site. I have worked on and rolled out the Classic Strawberry Banana Smoothie recipe. I hope to have the Sweet Banana and Piña Colada recipes up later today. Lots of smoothies and drinks to have, but I guess I’ll take one for the team.

The strawberry banana was also the first smoothie I got pictures of, which are now throughout the site. It was a first for me, taking and editing photos to post online. They aren’t perfect, but I am pretty proud of my efforts.

Since I usually just throw things into the blender and eyeball everything, it has been fun trying to measure out and write down what I use. I start off with an idea for a recipe in my head, and then try to just add stuff like I normally would. But, this time around I am measureing out what goes in. Then I blend it all up and taste test it. If it isn’t quite right, I add what I think it needs and begin blending again. There is always a fine balance to it.

And remember, it is always better to add too little of an ingredient than too much. You can always add more. It is impossible with smoothies to take out an ingredient you have already blended into the whole drink. Trust me, I have had to re-do the whole batch when trying to get the recipes for the site simply because there was too much of one ingredient and there was nothing I could do about it. But I guess having to drink a few extra glasses of smoothie isn’t the worst punishment.
