We've had an overwhelming response to our awesome new "Cooking the Lazy Mom Way" idea. Okay, not really. In fact, we've had zero responses, but that's okay. I've cried over it and asked God, "why me?" and then I was fine. So no worries!
So to entice you to send in your lazy mom recipes, I've decided to throw another one of my personal favorites out there for you to see. And this one I've actually DONE before, so that's a plus. So first let's see if it meets all of our lazy mom requirements for being submitted:
1. Is it so easy a lazy mom can do it? You bet your sweet bippers it is!
2. Does it have less than five ingredients? Sure 'nough!
3. Is it family friendly? Well if this picture doesn't tell you it is then I might as well call it quits.
So off we go now!
First you get your blender out. Mine happens to be caked with lots of goo and grime (like any good lazy moms would be) so just keep your eyes a little further up, k?
Get you one nice looking banana and throw it into the blender like so.
[A quick side note about bananas. Usually I keep a bag of bananas in my freezer for this VERY recipe, but for some reason SOMEONE
*cough* Lazy Dad *cough*
must have thrown them away! So whenever you have some bananas that are starting to go bad, just throw them in a Ziploc bag and chunk them in the freezer. That way you have NO excuse not to make this recipe.]
Next, take you some 'Great Value' blueberries (ya, we aren't food racist around here. Any ol' brand will do) and pour 'em in....
Next grab the fourth and final ingredient, orange juice, and fill 'er up to right about there....
(can you tell that this is a very precise recipe?)
Then if you are a TRUE lazy mom you won't be able to find the little thing ma'bob that goes with your lid, so you have a lid with a whole in it. [can I get a witness out there?]
So you will have to do exactly what I did...
Ya, do that. Hold it down tight while you mix away until it's smooth. [You may have to add more orange juice to keep loosening it up until it's smooth.]
Or in my case, half full.
[Notice the crock pot in the background? See that the little light is lit up? That's because I'm making this even as we speak - Seeeee? I really do cook the lazy mom way in real life and not just on blogger.]
Next, you'll need to do like I did and run out to your car and get that random extra Wendy's straw that they gave you that one time 2 years ago, and use it to slurp up your totally awesome smoothies!
So now you absolutely MUST stop what you are doing RIGHT NOW and email us your lazy mom recipes! You must, must, must!
And now I MUST stop what I'm doing and go put on deodorant because I just realized I forgot to do that earlier. Niiiiice.
