Five Columbia-Themed Smoothies That Will Transport You Back To Campus

Missing Columbia? Not getting enough fruit? Looking for new ways to waste time? Enjoy not one, not two, but FIVE new Columbia University-themed smoothies! With love, Bwog.

Smoothie #1: Sunshine on Low Steps, a lemon ginger dream that’ll whisk you away to simpler times spent with friends

Ingredients: 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1/2 cup ice cubes, 1 tbs fresh lemon juice, 1 tsp fresh grated ginger, 1 tsp fresh grated lemon zest, a pinch of ground turmeric and optional whipped cream

Can’t you just hear the murmurs of your peers and the tourists and the distant traffic? Can’t you just see bottle-flipping man flip bottles before thine own eyes?

Smoothie #2: Bacchanal Berry Blast, the perfect sweet n sour smoothie for those sweet n sour Bacchanal memories (will not cause a hangover)

Ingredients: 1/2 cup spinach, 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, 1/4 cup frozen raspberries, 1/2 a banana, 1/4 cup of milk, 1 tbs old-fashioned oats, 1 tbs maple syrup and a splash of vanilla

May Bacchanal 2020 Rest in Peace.

Smoothie #3: Milstein Maple Chai, because we’re all missing our favorite study beverage of choice

Ingredients: 1 frozen banana, approx. 5 ice cubes, 1 cup almond milk, 2 tbs almond butter, 1 tbs maple syrup, 1 tbs chia seeds, 1/2 tsp spice blend (to make spice blend: 1 tsp each of ground ginger, allspice, cardamom, cinnamon, ground clove) and optional whipped topping

If you close your eyes, it’s almost as if you’re sitting in a green chair with the blinding sunlight in your face making it too bright to do any work on your laptop, but no worries, you’re just hanging with friends anyway.

Smoothie #4: Pour Me a Roaree, if you’re in the mood for a tropical treat!

Ingredients: 1 frozen banana, 1 peeled and sliced orange, 3/4 cup coconut yogurt, 1/2 cup orange juice (or pineapple juice??), 2 tsp vanilla and optional ice for texture

Drink one of these with abounding enthusiasm, as if we’ve just won something athletic. School spirit!

Smoothie #5: Breakfast in Butler, the perfect protein-powder-peanut-butter-and-banana power-up

Ingredients: 1 cup of ice, 1 banana (the more overripe, the sweeter your smoothie will be!), 1/2 cup milk, 1 tbs of PB2 powder (or regular peanut butter), 2 tbs vanilla protein powder and an optional 1 tbs of cocoa powder (not included in photo)

Chug it like you’re back in Ref and ready to grind, bro!
