PB&J Banana Smoothie

Image
Making a PB&J Banana Smoothie is easy and it tastes delicious. Recently I bought a jar of peanut butter with jelly mixed in, called Goobers. I was craving some peanut butter and jelly crackers, but I ran out of crackers. Instead, I was curious and search on Google peanut butter and jelly smoothies. I ended up improvising, but the result was amazing.
Here are the ingredients that you'll need:

- 3 Tbs. peanut butter
- 2 Tbs. jelly (I used the mixed jar of PB&J, so I put in about 3 Tbs. total)
- 2 chopped bananas
- 1 Tbs. honey
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup ice

Combine all of these ingredients together in a blender, and blend for a few minutes, or until smooth.

Enjoy this delicious smoothie!




Sopapillas

Sopapillas can be a difficult dessert to make. I have made them two times in the last few months, and they are hard to get just right! I do not have a deep fryer, so I use a deep pan on the stove instead. It is important to get the oil to the right the temperature, or else the sopapillas will not become puffy; they might burn instead. It is important to try the recipe more than once. Just because the sopapillas do not turn out the first time you make them, doesn't mean you shouldn't try making them again!

 Here is the recipe I used, adjusted from All Recipes.com: 
- 1 2/3 cups of flour
- 3/4 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tbs. and 2 tsp. shortening/butter
- 1/2 cup and 2 tbs. warm water
- enough oil to fill the pan about 1 inch deep

Directions:
- Combine the flour, baking powder and softened butter in a large bowl.
- Add the warm water and stir well.
- Roll out the dough and create 3 inch square shapes.
- Heat the oil in the pan for about 5 minutes, or until it is piping hot.
