How to make a Smoothie

      Hello! I'm Abby and today i'm going to be teaching you how to make a delicious strawberry and banana smoothies. Trust me it will be worth it. 

  1. First take out your blender
  2. Next take out a box of strawberry's, 2 bananas, orange juice,  a measuring cup, yogurt of your choice, a cup of ice, knife, sink, and coconut water
  3. Now turn on your sink (make sure the water is warm to wash off the germs) 
  4. After your 100% sure that the fruit is clean you can start cutting off the stems, i'd cut off 5-7
  5. Once that is completed grab your bananas
  6. Now peel them both and break it with a knife or your hands into the size of your choice
  7. When that is completed put your fruit into the blender
  8. On to the liquid, grab your orange juice and measuring cup
  9. Shake your orange juice and poor about half a cup into the measuring cup (add more if you like it thin and add less if you want it thicker)
  10. Once that's finished grab your coconut water along with your measuring cup
  11. Poor about a half a cup too
  12. Straight into the blender 
  13. (Almost done) Now take your ice and poor it straight into the blender
  14. 2nd to last grab the yogurt you picked out and poor it into the blender
  15.  Now turn on your blender (make sure that the cap is on ;) )
  16. Once its all blended poor it into a cup don't forget the whipped cream and the cherry on top

   Now if you would like to treat yourself add some Splenda
  to make it sweet. When your finished with your master piece grab a straw and enjoy!

My Food Blog

    Hi i'm Abby and for my blog i'm going to be doing a cooking\baking blog. For this weeks blog I made a homemade chocolate cake and it was so delicious! Next week I'm going to post a video! Anyways this week I'm going to be telling you about why I love to bake and a little bit about the cake that I made this week.

    First as I said I'm going to be telling you why I love cooking and baking so so much. My first reason is  I love a challenge! An example of that was when I made the chocolate cake on Friday because it was my first time making a cake from scratch! But now that I've done it before and I consider it easy. On the other hand making breakfast is not the most easy for me, like burritos and poached eggs. Another reason that I love cooking and baking so much is (I know this is not the best reason but its true) I love cooking shows! I think that there so much fun to watch, and they inspire me in so many ways! Also they inspire to to be the best that I can be! The final reason I love cooking is because of the art: you may not think art goes into cooking  at all, but it does. An example of that is you have to plate your food nicely so it doesn't look like a total wreck and cooking is an all around art. Those are the main reasons I love cooking so much.

   My next topic for this blog is about the cake i made on Friday. It was a homemade 100% coco cake. It's my Nana's recipe. It included eggs, flour, sugar, vanilla, Hershey;s coco powder, baking soda, baking powder, veggie oil, and water, and that"s just for the main cake part. After you mix all those ingredients together, you'll scrape it into a 9x13 pan and bake for 30-35 minutes. Now onto the frosting! The frosting i used for the cake has been in my family for many, many years. Therefore, it's only made out of four ingredients. That includes sugar, vanilla, shortening, and evaporated milk. Once you put the correct amount of each ingredient into the mixing bowl, use a hand mixer, to mix it all together. Once you're finished with the frosting, and your cake is ready, you can frost it with as much as you want because the recipe gives you more than you need. Just wait until the cake is cooled before you frost it or the cake will melt your frosting.

   See you next week on my food blog. :)
