WHY WE LOVE SMOOTHIES AND TACOS….Maybe it’s the phones…….



I have a lot of really smart friends. They hang around with me because I’m funny and can cook. Tonight, I was hanging out with Bud Kennedy – he writes the “Good Eats’ column for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram – and he said “food is all about what you can hold in one hand…so you can TEXT. Just look on the TCU food website. Kids want food you can eat with one hand to keep the other hand free on the phone.”

It was a breakthrough moment for me. Now I realized why certain foods had become so popular in recent years…it was about one-handed foods – of which the green smoothie is one. Tacos are another. Wraps and rice balls rolled around in my mind as well.  Think about it. Makes sense. 

So then I decided we needed a special recipe for this. So here it is, below:


2 cups spinach

1 peach, halved and pitted

1 stalk celery, trimmed and roughly chopped 

Cashew milk, preferably homemade   (cashews are zinc-city and will clear pimples off young face like POW!)

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon



1. Put the spinach, peach and celery in the blender. Cover with cashew milk and blend until smooth, dropping ice cubes through the top of the blender until the desired consistency is reached. Serve

If you don’t know how to make cashew milk, you’ll find all the interesting nut milks in Skinny Green Smoothies. Give it try.
