Cherries and mango are two very common (and yummy!) fruits which you wouldn’t normally think would go well together. Recently, I found myself with some leftover cherries after baking a pie, and decided I wanted to make a smoothie with them. At first I wasn’t sure what to combine them with, but I decided to give mango another shot at Smoothie Sunday. Thus the mango cherry smoothie was born.
Erik and I went to a peach festival last Sunday so I wanted to make a peach smoothie in honor of that. Since I also still had cherries to use up I tossed those in too. The result was yummy and refreshing. Now I just need to come up with some more peach recipes to use all the peaches we got at the festival!
I’m not sure how common starfruits are. When I was younger I used to get them from the grocery store often, but then I went a long time without seeing them. When I finally saw starfruit again at the store the other day I bought couple. I knew I wanted to try making a smoothie with one because they have a very light, refreshing taste. To boost up the amount of fruit I added some blueberries we’re still trying to finish and some pineapple we had lying around. I ended up with a very summery, refreshing smoothie that’s high in vitamin C and antioxidants. Can’t beat that.
Alright, maybe this seems a bit obvious to people out there who cook with pumpkin at home. But tragically, year after year we see the most despicable of Fall-crimes: throwing away pumpkins.
But let us make this very clear, here: pumpkins are FOOD. They’re not just decorations. They’re a healthy, delicious foodstuff that you can use as decorations, but that’s the best part, after they’re done you can freaking eat these things!
The Cereal Report is a column in which PCFG conducts various cereal reviews, of new or limited products, as well as providing brief backgrounds on the cereal. Cereal is delicious and fairly cheap as far as meals go. Everyone should eat cereal!
Fall is on the way, everyone! And with every Autumnal equinox comes a plethora of limited edition pumpkin spice variants of foods. We’ve seen cookies, coffee, drinks, etc… but someone new is taking a crack at the annual craze. This year, we saw the arrival of Pumpkin Spice Cheerios, which if I recall correctly is the first time a cereal brand has harnessed the power of pumpkin pie spice. As always, I’m always a little skeptical of almost all pumpkin spice editions of foods and drinks because it’s such a quick and dirty cash-in, and frequently isn’t even that good.
That said, let’s give Cheerios the benefit of the doubt. Afterall, they’re a venerable cereal that puts on a persona of wholesomeness and doesn’t typically use wacky gimmicks to rope people into buying it.
