All Hail The Great God "Blender"!

I finally got one of the offspring to try a smoothie. Why is this so hard?? they are very very suspicious of me when I try and get them to try something I made. I think this stems from times I snuck veggies into a favorite food with less success. Ben still says NO and runs the other way when I say "try this" but Cameron is more trusting...and eats like a horse so is less choosy.
But given that this is a house of popsicle maniacas that are sending us to the poorhouse with the expense, I will prevail. I bought 5 popsicle mold doohickeys.
Ingredients for the "popsicles" were juice and that frozen fruit you find in the freezer section of the grocery store. I made two varieties. one used canned frozen fruit punch and water with the fruit. The other has "exotic" fruit juice blend and the frozen fruit. The kids each had a fruit punch popsicle this morning after breakfast and declared them awesome.
This morning I offered up a smoothie and Cameron said yes. It was the popsicle recipe for the exotic juice and fruit. Soooo good. Now...to add some protein etc to the mix...mwahahahahahaha. ahem. Next time I will add some yogurt and honey. Tofu?
