I’ve been thinking for awhile about starting a web site called The Lazy Chef — tips and workarounds for people who like to eat good stuff, but are well… lazy. Maybe someday.
Anyhow, here’s a first entry: easy fruit smoothies. A couple of card-playing buddies of mine actually tipped me off on this method (one such buddy). Buy a few bags of frozen fruit (strawberries, peaches, pineapple, whatever). If there’s a Trader Joe’s near you, they have a pretty decent selection. Buy some orange juice. Plop a bunch of fruit in a blender. Add some OJ. Add some sugar (optional). Mix. That’s it.
Because the fruit is frozen, there’s no need to add ice. The result is like a sorbet shake. Completely natural, but delicious. I should also mention that I loathe the word “smoothie”.
