We road the Reduction high all last week. What an absolute gas to have our video picked up by The Daily What, and then Comedy Central’s Tosh.O. I mean…pinch me. The YouTube numbers stand at over 33,000 and continue to climb, although have slowed down considerably. We enjoyed our 15 minutes.

Enormous thank you to everyone who watched it, were entertained by it, and continue to share it.

The funny thing, to me anyway, was that 17 people asked me what kind of smoothie I was making in the video. Oh my goodness, how much do I love my readers? Paying attention to such things! A few of them pointing out that Spring is just around the corner. While that’s true, I actually make smoothies every week, all year long.

This is just one of my favorites.

Rasp-Blueberrylicious Smoothie
Makes 2 smoothies (about 4 cups)
Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time: 5 minutes

Ingredients
• 1 (14 ounce) container raspberry sorbet (such as Haagen Dazs)

I have a smoothie pretty much every morning and i’m always impressed with how they taste because I change it up based on what I have and it always tastes great!
Congrats on the 15 minutes of fame…something tells me it’ll happen again:)

I do love smoothies. One year, I made one every morning until one day I woke up and cooked a pot of oatmeal. Felt like Forrest Gump when he stopped running.
This looks so fruity and energizing! And I need more of that in my life.

Ha! Great analogy. I was like that with yogurt and granola for breakfast. It went on forever, until my sister introduced me to crusty bread, jam, and ricotta. Then I ate nothing other than that for months. When I fall, I fall hard.

This looks suspiciously like breakfast to me! We drink smoothies made with frozen fruit & kefir just about every weekday. Lately it’s been pineapple & peaches we froze last summer… but I’m looking forward to something more berry-like, just as soon as berries come back into season here in WI. In the meantime, I’ll just glance at this picture every now and again and swoon.

And super-uber-congrats on the video :) I’m always rooting for you guys to hit the bigtime with your projects, and this was no exception!

Pineapple and peaches is a great combo. I freeze berries when they’re in season just so I don’t have to wait another year. Last year I bought so many strawberries from Costco, I barely had room for them in my freezer.

Just bought fresh berries yesterday. . . this is perfect timing and I’m needing one of these delish smoothies right now! Already following; hope you stop by to share a post on my weekend get-together if you like.

I loved your photo of your smoothie. It’s what I would love to have right now. Delish and healthy too, perfect combination.

Sorbet! Why hasn’t anyone ever told me about that until now?And here I am making my smoothies with just fruit and yogurt. I have been missing out, big time. Will try this next time, for sure.

Well, most people equate smoothies with healthy. And the minute you add in sorbet, it becomes slightly unhealthy? I figure with the added fruit and yogurt, it’s still better than chowing down on a box of Oreos, right? I will say this…it’s sublime. Go make one, you’ll love it!

Woot woot! I’m basically famous by association now! And for that I love you.

I also need your autograph. K thanks.

Somehow I didn’t notice the smoothie. Probably because I don’t have a blender and thus was blocking it out so that I wouldn’t feel bad about not having a blender. The smoothie sounds awesome though. I should buy a blender.

One of my Facebook followers declared the same thing. How does anyone not have a blender? I use mine almost every day. I am speechless. This is not acceptable and I will be pacing for the rest of the day. Please send help.

Oh and btw…what took you so f*cking long to make this video??? Channeling the Comedy Central writer. Potty mouth.

We just watched the original movie! I know, we’re soooo behind. We live a sad and uneventful life ;-)
