This is one of our favorite things around the Yellow House these days ;-) We are so into drinking homemade smoothies lately. It’s our drink of the summer. This wonderful strawberry smoothie was consumed a few days ago. (smile) Every time we have these I feel all refreshed.
One day last week, I got all creative and decided to make us a special one for dessert and I was really wanting chocolate. But we didn’t have any chocolate syrup around here. We did have something that was supposed to be chocolate, but it tasted more like caramel. We had tried it on ice cream, but it didn’t really work well. So it got shelved. Then when I was craving some chocolate to put in our drink, I thought of this strange chocolate/caramel hybrid syrup.
So I squirted some of it into the blender along with a bit of milk and vanilla ice cream and got a huge surprise. “Eureka!”, I cried. LOL. Well, actually I just said…”mmmmm”. It tasted really great. So now our weird hybrid syrup has a use in the Yellow House and Brit Boy and I can have tasty smoothies of yet another flavor. (smile) We won't have this one too often as it is more dessert-like, but we'll have to have one again soon...maybe tomorrow...hee hee ;-)
So it’s been a smoothie summer around here. It may have to be a smoothie fall/autumn too…and winter… and spring…LOL.
