Kid's Smoothie (Vlog)

Last week I made a kid smoothie. 
You will need;
3 scoops of ice cream
1/4 cup blue berry's  (optional)
4 big strawberry's  (can use frozen)
1/2 banana
1/2 cup of milk use as much as you need to make it smooth.
Blend  all ingredients until  smooth.  Put in a glass and decorate with a strawberry sliced partway through the middle and stick on the side of the glass, add a straw.  Drink and enjoy.
For a healthy option use yogurt instead of ice cream and low fat milk (I use whole fat cos I need the calories).

Mellon Cutter Review

For Christmas I got a cool cheese grater (love it) and this melon cutter.  I love cantaloupe so its not surprising that I got the cutter even though I really did not know what it was at first.  I decided to test it yesterday since I was in the mood for cantaloupe.
Even though it is plastic it cut the melon nicely.  It also can be used for scooping out the seeds.  I thought it worked much better than a spoon.  It says you can use it to peel the cantaloupe but I use a knife which is easier.
Out of 10 I would give it a 7.  Its useful but not a must have in my kitchen.

I have been really busy cooking and writing  for Cooking Light - it is so much fun.  My Mom has taken some squid out of the freezer for my dinner tonight.  Yum I can't wait.  I still have not decided how I am going to cook it but if I can't think of anything better I like it just in a pan with some EVOO and salt (I'm not a fan of pepper).  Sometimes I bread it or make a sauce or pasta.

See you soon.  I have a smoothie recipe to show you.
