blueberry smoothieI have to admit that this isn’t the most exciting Blueberry Smoothie video recipe I’ve ever reviewed, but all the basics are in there.  With simple ingredients like bananas, frozen blueberries, blueberry preserves, milk and ice, making the smoothie could be easier than watching the video.

That said, this is an interesting way to show what goes into a Blueberry Smoothie! This quick and easy video shows all the ingredients in a clear and concise way.

Strawberry Milkshake Video Recipe

Strawberry Milkshake

You can make a delicious strawberry milkshake year-round, since strawberries freeze quickly and hold up well when frozen. Strawberries are packed with healthy vitamins and fiber, but the ice cream used in the video shown above isn’t recommended by most health professionals. Of course, sometimes taste beats out health professionals… look out Strawberry Milkshake, here I come!

Strawberry Milkshake

Strawberry Milkshake Recipe

  • 8 ounces strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • 2/3 cup vanilla or strawberry ice cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar

Place all the ingredients into a single-serving blender, and blend until smooth.

Making a Frozen Watermelon Drink

Frozen Watermelon Drink

Who doesn’t love a good Frozen Watermelon Drink?

OK. Maybe this isn’t really frozen, but it sure looks good!  On top of that, I love Rita’s accent.

I don’t know about you guys, but for me there is nothing that spells summer like watermelon.  Bundling the sweet goodness of watermelon into a watermelon drink just sounds mouth-watering!

This recipe is quick and easy, requiring only three ingredients to make. I might add some ice cubes to thicken it a bit, but what can I say… it isn’t my recipe!

A watermelon drink provides a healthy dose of:

  • Lycopene, a powerful antioxidant
  • Vitamin A, to improve eye health and boost immunity
  • Vitamin B6, to help the immune system promote antibodies
  • Vitamin C, to bolster the immune system’s fight against viruses and fight infections
  • Potassium, to help prevent muscle cramps

One cup of watermelon juice, the main component of this watermelon drink, contains only 71 calories.

Here’s an affordable blender that should work well for making your watermelon drink.

Is it Safe to Drink Frozen Drinks in Cancun?

drink frozen drinksDo You Like to Drink Frozen Drinks When You Travel?

We are heading to Cancun in the next couple days. I was told not to drink the water, but can I drink frozen drinks at  Fat Tuesdays? That is one of my favorite places to have a drink. Do they use filtered water? Just asking…

Cantaloupe Milkshake

I have to admit that I’d never heard of a Cantaloupe Milkshake before I saw this video, but now I’m dying to try one. These gals from Show Me the Curry seem to have what looks like a winner here! The only thing is that I think this leans more toward a cantaloupe smoothie than a cantaloupe milkshake. I’d swap in vanilla ice cream for the milk or ice to make it more ‘milkshakey’.

One other thing I love and learned from this video is a unique way to measure the main ingredients in a milkshake or even a smoothie. They start the recipe out by pouring the main ingredients (fruit, milk and ice) into two glasses. When finished, the recipe makes [surprise!] just enough to fill those same glasses. Absolutely brilliant!

How to Make a Cantaloupe Milkshake

Fill a glass with cantaloupe, then pour milk into the glass to the top. Fill another glass with ice cubes to the top. Add both to a blender, then add a small amount (1/4 teaspoon) of cardamom powder. Add sweetener, if desired. Blend well, and pour into the original glasses.

As I said above, I’d be tempted to use ice cream in the recipe. Perhaps the best way to do this is to use ice cream instead of ice when filling the second glass. You may still need to add some ice to cool the drink fully. Be sure to store the cantaloupe in the refrigerator for an hour or two before making the shake if you go the ice cream route to help keep the ice cream from melting.

Cold Cooking a Perfect Frozen Margarita

Cold Cooking a Perfect Frozen Margarita in Your Freezer

Pretty much everyone loves the taste of a Perfect Frozen Margarita. With the onslaught of mixes, powders, and tubs you can use for making a margarita, it’s easy to see why it’s one of the most popular drinks around.

So how do you “cold cook” your perfect frozen margarita? Think of it like a slow cooker, only you “bake” your margarita in the freezer.

Perfect Frozen Margarita

Care for a Margarita?

Ingredients for a Perfect Frozen Margarita

The ingredients for this margarita include:

  • Can of Frozen Lime Concentrate
  • 12 ounces of Tequila
  • 8 ounces Triple Sec
  • 16 ounces of Sprite
  • 24 ounces Cold Water
  • A 1-gallon plastic bucket
  • 24 hours (more or less)

The Cold Cooking Process

Blending the mix is simple enough.  Pour all the liquid ingredients into a bucket, and then stir.  That’s done!

Cover the bucket with a lid or plastic wrap, and place it into your freezer to cook.  After 10-12 hours, you’ll want to open the top and stir the mix.  Let it set for about 24 hours total before serving.

The Magic of this Perfect Frozen Margarita

The magic in this recipe is the alcohol.  It keeps the mix from freezing solidly, much like anti-freeze does in your car radiator.  Stirring the mix ensures the alcohol is blended well with the ingredients that do freeze.

The Sprite, water and lime concentrate will all freeze.  But because these liquids are blended with the alcohol, they freeze in small particles rather than a solid block.  These frozen particles form a thick slush — the perfect consistency for a frozen margarita.

It’s best to enjoy a frozen margarita in a special margarita glass like that in the photo above.  The long stem allows you to hold the glass without transferring much of the cold to your hand and without melting the drink.

True margarita enthusiasts like to rim the glass with lime, and then dip the wet rim in salt before pouring the drink.  The choice is yours.
