Monkey See Monkey Did

Yesterday I went to Ugly Mugs, a little coffee shop on Eastland in East Nashville, with Samantha so we could get some work done on a project we’re sharing. I ordered a brown sugar and honey latte (delicious) and Sam got the best smoothie I had ever tasted. It’s called a Curious George: bananas, PB and honey. Seriously good stuff. So I figured that’s probably the easiest recipe to replicate ever and I tried it out today at home (this is what I do when I’m trying to find anything to do BUT write papers). I took a whole banana, 1 tbsp of PB (which counts as a “snack” in P90X world) and a quick squeeze of honey, put it in the blender with a handful of ice cubes and a tiny bit of water (not much because I didn’t want it too…watery) and blended it all together! It’s a little less peanut buttery than the one from Ugly Mugs, but I’m sticking to my 1tbsp so I can stay within the P90X boundaries. And it’s DELICIOUS. I just told Sam I made it and she texted back to me “instead of calling it curious george, you can call it monkey see monkey do!” They say imitation is the highest form of flattery right? Ayer fui a Ugly Mugs, un café en Eastland en el Este de Nashville, con Samantha para trabajar en un projecto que estamos haciendo juntas. Yo pedi un café cortado con azucar rubia y miel, Sam se pidio el mejor batido que he probado. Se llama Jorge el Curioso: platano, mantequilla de mani, y miel. En verdad delicioso. Asi que pense que seria la receta mas facil de copiar e hice la prueba en casa hoy (eso es lo que hago cuando busco algo que hacer EXCEPTO tareas). Tome un platano, una cucharada de mantequilla de mani (que cuenta como un snack en nuestra dieta P90X) y un chorrito de miel, puse todo en la batidora con unos cuantos cubos de hielo y un poquito de agua (no mucha agua por no lo quiero aguado) y a batir! Tiene un poquito menos de sabor a mantequilla de mani que el batido de Ugly Mugs, pero voy a quedarme con mi cucharada de mantequilla de mani para no romper la dieta P90X. Y es delicioso. Le acabo de mandar un mensaje de texto a Sam contandole sombreel batido, y ella me respondio “en vez de llamarlo Jorge el Curioso deverias llamarlo El Mono hace lo que el Mono ve!”. Dicen que imitacion es la mejor forma de demostrar admiracion, verdad?
