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!
