TGE Recipes: Pink Slime Smoothie with Al Riggs

Welcome to TGE Recipes, a place where our favorite bands share the secrets straight from their kitchens. Think your favorite Food Network show except on a purple blog. Today we welcome Al Riggs.

Pink Slime Smoothie

I’ve been making smoothies since I was old enough to professionally lose a hand in a blender and more often than not when I make a smoothie I make the same smoothie: THIS one. 

It started off as a “clean out the fridge” style recipe and evolved into a Mandatory Breakfast Thing in my meal wheelhouse (mealhouse?). 

Ingredients

  • 1 Whole Banana, Frozen
  • 5-7 Frozen Strawberries (or 1 cup of frozen chopped strawberries)
  • 1 Whole Contained of Yoplait Light Blueberry Yogurt (This is just the kind I use, you can use any kind of blueberry yogurt, including greek)
  • 1/3-1/2 cup of orange juice
  • 1/3-1/2 cup of cranberry juice

NO ICE, ICE WILL RUIN THIS. DO NOT RUIN YOUR PRECIOUS SMOOTHIE CHILD
All kitchen-type measurements are assumed and everything is negotiable, portion wise. 

Directions

Put the juices and yogurt in first before the frozen stuff. Blend until smooth or until air bubble in blender pops on its own. 

BONUS TIP: add either/or chocolate syrup or cinnamon to this smoothie. Or: don’t. I am not your parent. 

Here's a pink album from Al to enjoy with your pink smoothie!
