My First Smoothie. Ever

So, this was my first crack at Smoothie making. I took organic peaches, some random orange slices, honey dew melon and cantalope from a ready-made fruit salad, added a plum, goya pear nectar, about 2 Tbsp of honey, lime juice, ice cubes and mango yogurt. It was okay. 3 out of 5 stars. Not bad but I think I didn't pulse it well enough cos there were all sorts of little hard to eat particles in there that made it less than ideal. But still, not gonna give up, this is only the beginning. I'm hoping to make a pina colada one next. =D

There's no light in my kitchen. *Sigh* Anyway, I couldn't drink much of it so I put it into ice cube trays with toothpicks sticking out so my bf and I would have some cold sweets later on.

From Misfortune Comes Adventure

Behold, my awesome new blender. It's called The Ninja, and it's a thousand Watts of stainless steel kickassness, perfect for all your every day smoothie making and dead body disposing needs.

I tried to make it bigger but my resizing just made the picture grainy. Fuck it, you get the idea. This is what I get for using my shitty cameraphone.

So anyway, yeah. I've been having a lot of issues with my tooth so eating solid food has become problematic. It's a long saga, but suffice it to say it took an entire month to have the crater in my tooth filled in and the process isn't over yet so I'll be sipping most of my meals through a straw for a while. Ergo, I needed a blender. I've never made my own smoothie before, nor do I know jack shit about smoothie making, so this is going to be a fucking adventure.

Stay tuned to see what I manage to blow up first; the machine or my kitchen
