Fruit Murder! Tasty Smoothie or Delicious Crime Scene?


Ever been walking around a festival and seen a guy hauling gasoline to a generator just to power his music and a blender?  Not only is this person a forward thinker in the ways of revelry, but also wise in the ways of nutrition.  When dancing non-stop in one-hundred degree heat one’s body tends to burn through a lot of water, vitamins, and minerals.  Smoothies and other blended drinks are one of the best ways to replenish those nutrients in a quick and tasty way.  Here are three delicious recipes help keep you going.

If you don’t want to be hauling gasoline or generators into Reno in order to enjoy tasty drinks, don’t worry.  A little internet research will yield many designs for blenders and food processors; some battery powered, others even wind-up.  Also, don’t forget to get a little radically self-reliant.  Two bicycles, an egg beater, some duct tape and time could yield amazing results.  Last but not least, when in doubt, use more fruit.  Fruit is going to spoil fast in the Nevada heat, best use it up while its still good
