I have this weird thing with textures.
It all started when I was about 9 years old. My dad would take me to the local movie theater & there was this bomb-ass ice cream, like vintage-ish parlor that would make smoothies.
And guys, these weren’t like Jamba Juice days.
Smoothies were seriously slim pickens in my younger years.
Anyway, he would take me to this ice cream parlor before a Disney movie to get an ice cream or smoothie. Of course, being 9 I would add like the most ridiculous things to my smoothie ( like we’re talking gummy worm, Oreo smoothies ).
My favorite one though was always this peanut butter fro-yo concoction.
Basically it was chocolate chips, banana ice cream, peanut butter fro-yo, & sliced almonds ( at least I was healthy with the sliced almonds? ). I HAD THIS WEIRD OBSESSION WITH THE CHOCOLATE CHIPS BEING BLENDED INTO THE SMOOTHIE BECAUSE IT GAVE THE SMOOTHIE A CRUNCH.
If anyone loves textures like me, please tell me you know what the hell I’m talking about when I say ‘gave the smoothie a crunch.’
So the other day we were having a lazy Sunday & watching Beauty & The Beast ( we looooovveee Disney movies ). And naturally, I became all nostalgic & wanted to make a crunchy smoothie.
SOOOOOoooo of course, I decided to make it TSC-style. Introducing:
The Crunchy Peanut Butter Cashew, Get In Your PJ’s & Watch A Movie Smoothie:
Directions: blend. Top & garnish with a teaspoon of cacao & a pretty straw because you’re cute like that. Make one for your boyfriend too, he’ll love you forever.
Side note: cashew milk exists, guys. When I found out this tidbit of info, I nearly died. I MEAN CASHEW MILK?!! Is this real life? It’s seriously the best thing ever. You can also add it to your coffee, make cashew ice cubes, or use it as an ice cream base. Thank me later for this find, k!
As for the crunchy crunch: the cacao will rock your tastebuds & give your smoothie some volume. If you’re anything like me & love textures GET ACQUAINTED WITH CACAO IMMEDIATELY. I add raw cacao nibs to everything!!
This crunchy smoothie ( yummmm ) soooo brought me back to my ice cream parlor/peanut butter/pre-Jamba Juice/crunchy smoothie days, ya know? #TBT
What’s your favorite texture? Tell me something weird. I love weird stories. K, go.
