Here’s what you need to make the best smoothie of your life… one that will fortify your fishing! As I said earlier in this video, it’s awesome to drink during the summer when the ingredients are in season on your way to the lake. I used a different recipe in that video, but they are both inspired by the fresh locally grown produce of the season.
Step 1 - Cut a peach in half (Chilton County, Alabama peaches preferred, of course). Now remove the seed and drop into blender (Vitamix blender is my favorite, but others will suffice).
It’s better to use the produce from the area you live in. The more local, the better. Not only is it fresher, but your local bass can tell the difference and will know if you’ve been consuming foreign grown fruit. You risk offending them which leads to the refusal of your lures.
Around where I live, Georgia peaches are foreign and inferior. No offense to Georgia FishStrong fans!
Step 2 - Dump in a cup of Greek yogurt. I used the o% fat version here (oversight on my part), but you should use the regular low fat or even the traditional whole fat version. Ooooh, fat… oh no!!! Don’t listen to your doctor. On average, doctors are behind the times about 20 years when it comes to diet and nutrition.
You’re going to need this fat like Bruce Dickinson needed more cowbell.
Step 3 – Add blueberries on top of the yogurt you just dumped in. Yes, these blueberries are local and were purchased at my local Farmers Market. We all need to support the small family farms as much as possible!!! It’s like supporting your local mom and pop tackle shop that’s been in business for generations.
Step 4 – Add watermelon. Just dig it right out of the rind. Don’t be concerned with exact amounts. Just eyeball it. Don’t worry about the seeds either. They will be pulverized.
Step 5 – Add one heaping scoop of Vega “Energizing Smoothie” mix. I use either Tropical Tango flavor or the Berry version. This is a great product!
Step 6 – Blend it all up! Do not over blend! Blend just long enough to get the job done, but not so long that your smoothie gets to “airy” and puffy. Also, it’s better if your ingredients are cold. If some of your berries or fruit was room temperature, add 3-4 pieces of ice.
Step 7 - Pour half of it in a cool glass, and drink it up!
Trust me folks, if you don’t drink this, you don’t know what you’re missing! I can produce something crave-worthy like this in a matter of 5 minutes. You would have to wait in line at a “smoothie shop” for at least that long and would pay a small fortune for 20 ounces of inferior nutrition and taste.
Just remember… barring the really obvious stuff that would clash (e.g. mixing peanut butter, coffee, and lemons), doing this follows the Outback Steakhouse philosophy. No rules, just right. You could even add a wad of spinach to this recipe and it would still taste great! Just experiment!
