It’s FRIDAY!!!

I was looking for something funny to insert above but I got distracted by how shiny this pic is. It’s so sparkly. I love it.

ANYWAYS my dears, it’s Friday. I am off work today for an amazing 4-day, yup not 3 but 4-day, weekend (don’t hate) and I’m in a fantastic mood about it.

So lets get right down to the subject at hand shall we- it’s smoothie time!! You may remember last week’s Downtown Mr Brown Smoothie. Well, meet his fancier cousin: the Uptown Dr Brown Smoothie.

Last week:                                   This week:

As you can see, they are both brown and they look amazingly similar to one another.

But the one on the right is ‘Uptown’ because it’s ingredients are quite a bit more decadent than it’s ‘Downtown’ relative. And it has been upgraded from ‘Mr’ to ‘Dr’ because Eric (who has his PhD) created this one entirely on his own. (Yup, smart, handsome, and good in the kitchen, swoon :) )

Me and Eric!  Halloween '12.We never remember to take pictures unless we look ridiculous. This is actually one of our best looks.

Halloween ’12. We never remember to take pictures unless we look ridiculous. This is actually one of our best looks.

NOTE: Other names for today’s smoothie include: The OranguTAN, the Wacky Khaki, and the Crazy Beigey.

Ingredients (good for 2 portions):

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 basket of strawberries
  • 2 scoops of chocolate or chocolate-coconut whey protein powder
  • 1 scoop of peanut butter
  • 2.5 cups of water OR coconut milk

Blend all that stuff together until smooth and you’ll have the tastiest cold concoction ever!

Alright, there you have it! Short-ish post today because I have already checked out mentally and I invite you to do the same.

What’s the first nonsensical word that pops into your head? Tell me in the comments! (“fugly” is mine)

Or if your head is still in the game and you have no time for nonsense til 5pm today then tell me your favorite SAT word (mine is “mellifluous”)

Have a happy and safe memorial day, y’all!!!

36 Thoughts on “Foodstuff Friday: The Uptown Dr Brown Smoothie

  1. Have an awesome Memorial Day weekend, girlie! Love the Halloween costume, by the way. Definitely a keeper! 😛

  2. Have a good memorial day weekend. That smoothie sounds yummy. Did you use any ice or frozen berries? My favorite nonsensical word would be ginormous. I think I use it quite often. lol

  4. Have a great four day weekend!
    My fave non-word is amazeballs. Kind of embarrassing if it slips out in front of parents or at work!
    Abby @ Change of Pace recently posted…Change the pace – trail running safetyMy Profile

  5. YAY for Friday! YAY for long weekends! Double YAY that you get an extra day!

    OK, let’s get our SAT on. The juxtaposition of three days of trail running with three days of business lunches and dinners is ironic.

    And for the double word score: fecundity. I think the use of that word in my AP Lit exam is what earned me a 5 out of 5.

    Have a great weekend!

    • FECUNDITY! awesome word!! have a great time on those trail runs and enjoy those business meetings too while you’re at it! happy friday my dear!!

  6. Lurve the Halloween costume — Brandon and I also never remember to take pics unless we look ridiculous, so I figure this guarantees a veritable treasure trove of asinine pictures for our grandchildren to look upon fondly someday. Unless they have lame (or no) senses of humor, in which case we might disown them. But I digress.

    Anyways! Have a fantastic long weekend, and happy Friday!

    • hahaha i’ll disown mine as well if they are bereft of a sense of humor. that goes for my children as well as grandchildren. And i know- neither of us are “picture takers” so we have no photos during the nice moments. someone has to be the one to be like “stop! pictures!” neither of us are that guy. oh well. have an awesome long weekend my dear!!

    Oh wow, that smoothie sounds delicious!

  8. Goober is my word. As in… I always look like a goober in pictures 😉 Happy Friday, girlie! I’m already doing my Friday happy dance, even though I have a full day of work to get through. Hopefully it won’t be too long. And is it weird that I’m kind of loving the rainy and overcast weather outside? You’d think it would be a bummer since it’s the weekend and all, but I’m really craving a good storm.

  9. Mother is my word!

  10. I thought of “joop.” What’s a joop?

    yaaaaay smoothies! Pittsburgh is finally starting to warm up enough for smoothie time! Do you freeze your bananas first? You should totally freeze your bananas first!
    Alex @ Brain, Body, Because recently posted…Cookies, Meal Plans, and a Dolphin TopiaryMy Profile

    • frozen bananas… holy cow… mind blown. i heart mind blowing comments soo much!! i never thought of that- I’ll freeze berries, mango, pineapple, but ive never stuck bananas in the freezer. i feel like you just took my smoothies to a whole new level! i cant wait to stick those suckers in the freezer before blending. yay! have an awesome weekend chica!!

  11. That sounds yum… although you had me at chocolate lol! I haven’t had a smoothie in weeks, this may need to be the first one I have when I next get a chance!

    • hahaha i know, whenever any recipe calls for chocolate, i’m instantly interested :) this one is so yummy :) happy friday, have an awesome long weekend girlie!!

  12. I always thought “corroborate” was a remarkably fun word to say, if not to spell! Also, whenever I think I tend to think in sounds, and “blerg” and “skidoosh” are usually the two that pop in to mind first! It’s very Tina Fey, but its also very annoying, lol. I’d love to think in words every now and then 😉 When it doubt, it’s always Wacky Khaki time! That boy of yours is awful charming looking, and I hope you guys have a fantabulous day together on your FOUR DAY WEEKEND WHICH IS AWESOME!
    Chelsea recently posted…Friday FavoritesMy Profile

    • HAHA! skidoosh! i love it :) blerg pops into my head from time to time as well. and thank you, i hope you and that handsome devil of yours have a fantabulous weekend too! im already so jealous of your beergaritas, im going to suggest this idea to eric because i think those need to happen in boston as well :) talk soon lady!!

  13. Fugly is a good one, it was also the first mixed word I thought of!

    PS: I want your smoothie on my table right now! It sounds so refreshing.

  14. Love the halloween costumes! We’re always on a trip during that time of year and I get so jealous of all the fun costumes.

    Your smoothies look delish and I need try. What protein powder do you use?

    Nonsensical word: hootenanny
    SAT word: pungent

    Enjoy your 4 day weekend!!!

  19. I’m so jealous of your 4 day weekend! I have a 3 day one, so I Should be complaining though ;). Your Halloween costume was so cute!!

  20. Just to say I tried the smoothie this weekend, and it was FAB! Sadly had to use vanilla protein powder (as I didn’t have any chocolate) but added in a tablespoon of cocoa powder which did the trick just fine… Yums!
