This month my cousin Teddy is hosting Shopping Around the World for me. (You might want to make a note now that cousin Teddy will also be hosting for me next month as well.) Thank you so much cousin Teddy – we really appreciate the help here during these hectic times at the Hotel Thompson.
This month the assignment was favorite snacks. Now mom has been enjoying a favorite snack that she kind of whipped up (literally) that she can’t get enough of at work. She says that sometimes she needs the extra caffeine. Rolls my piggy eyes. I guess since she has given up sodas she has to make it up somehow huh? I hope you enjoy her snack my friends. It seems mom proof which means it might be a little easy – I hope.
First you need some ingredients: Creamer. Mom loves the Almond Joy creamer – but any kind will do. This entire bottle was $2.50 and it lasts mom for almost three weeks. That averages to about $0.12 a cup for creamer. Two packs of Splenda. A box of 100 cost $3.00 therefore that is $0.03 per packet. 12 ice cubes – free YAY. 1 cup of cold coffee. Mom paid $6.00 for a container of coffee that makes something like 32 pots of coffee which calculates to $0.19 a pot.
Total cost for mom’s treat is less than $0.50 – what a steal for a cup of instant energy.
Now how does she make this wonder? Put all ingredients into a blender. Make sure blender is plugged in (mom has forgotten that important step in the past – snorts) and push blend button for smoothie. There you go bend and then pour into a cup. Add straw and enjoy your moment in the afternoon… or morning… or evening… or in the middle of the night. Mom makes this snack all of the time now.
