Hi Everyone. It's Friday... Let's have some fun!? For today's blog entry, I thought I'd post my submission to the recent video contest held by the Vita-Mix company. They were looking for a new spokesperson, and offered a $10,000 prize for the best video. I didn't make the final cut, but did have a good deal of fun making this short video. Hope you like it:

On this blog, I've featured smoothie recipes similar to the one shown in that video, so I won't post a special recipe here. I really just needed a very easy, yet tasty, recipe for the purposes of the vid. But, simple smoothies like this are very delicious, so definitely try it!

I'm not sure if I've had enough superhero training to do the "strawberry off the ceiling fan" technique, although it is quite impressive!

Also, is playing Bb essential to making the ginger fly into the carafe, or could something like F# work as well? :)

lol... We'll have to think of additional feats of superheroism sometime & make another vid just for fun. As for your other question: Yes, the Bb piano/ginger trick is *only* possible using that specific key. Another requisite is that it be played within the context of the opening measure to George Gershwin's "Raphsody in Blue." Strange, but true.

Awesome! That was so funny! Great job on that ginger ;)

I want to know: when you're adding the cacao, there's beautiful music playing in the background. What is it?

Thanks, Robin. KDcat and I were having so much fun that night, as it's not every day when you get to hang around the house and throw produce at each other.

Thanks, Joanna! The caco-scene background music is just some royalty-free music that came w/ the video editing package.
