Dreamsicle Smoothie

Dreamsicle Smoothie
If you think it’s hard to be a food blogger, I promise you that it’s harder to live with one.  We food bloggers are a rare breed of creativity and crazy in the kitchen, but those that love us and have to put up with us on a daily basis are really the ones that deserve the credit.  This post is dedicated to all the significant others of food bloggers who have ever had to hear these words… probably repeatedly.


Don’t eat that!  That’s not for you, that’s for the blog.

Don’t touch that!  I haven’t taken a picture yet!

No, I can’t right now.  I have ten minutes of light left and I need to get these pictures taken.

Get out of the kitchen, I’m blogging.  Take the cats.

Can you edit this for me?  No, you can’t wait until you finish that level on your video game.

Not yet.  I have to tweet, facebook, post this on foodgawker, tastespotting, finding vegan, healthy aperature, and…. I’ll be there in a minute honey.

Thank you dear partner for all your patience and support.  I think it might be time to celebrate you.  How about a dreamsicle smoothie?

Dreamsicle Smoothie

This smoothie is what you whip up when you really need to impress someone.  Maybe you’re a food blogger that wants to treat your special someone to something special.  Or maybe you’ve had a hard day and all that you want right now is to crawl under the covers.  I won’t judge.  But might I suggest taking a straw with you?

    Oh yeah, this is my life! My poor husband knows better than to touch his plate when I put it in front of him. He never knows if I’m going to need a last minute picture or what I have going on. I’ve started taking video now and that’s a whole different ballgame and set of rules. :)

    P.S. What a beautiful smoothie!

    Hahaha… I know what this is like! My family and friends have learned to assume that nothing in the kitchen is to be touched until I give approval…

    This looks so good. We’re having a bit of a heat wave so I’ve been needing more smoothies to try!
    I’m acutely aware of what a pain I’ve been to live with since I started blogging. I’ve been known to schedule meals around lighting, and sometimes I make Andy hurry home from work just so I still have enough daylight to document our dinner. She’s very tolerant.

    Yummy! I love this! I’m sitting next to my boyfriend, and he read this over my shoulder, and definitely agrees about the stresses of loving a food blogger. He’s kind of the best supporter I could ever ask for though. :)

    bahahaha oh my gosh, thank you for that. My favorite is “No, I won’t make that recipe again… it’s already posted on the blog” Kevin gets that a lot from me. He has his favorite dishes, but he only gets them once!

    Yum! It’s going to be over 100 degrees here starting Friday so I need some frozen treats lined up, for sure!!!

    BTW, I made your double broccoli quinoa on Sunday and the creamy carrot soup last night (I feel like your groupie). My six-year old LOVED the quinoa, but wasn’t crazy about the soup. He’s weird.

    Hubby loved both…and we were able to use fresh basil from our garden. Success!

    I just found your blog via One Green Planet and I’m so glad I did, it’;s gorgeous!

    This post made me laugh because it’s SO true, my bf is always have to wait for me to photograph food before he can tuck in!

  8. Shannon says

    This sounds really good except for the banana. I’m not to crazy about them so I’ll have to sub with something else. Any ideas on what may go well with clemintines?

    • says

      Any other fruit would work well in this. You could also increase the clementines, cashews and add a date or two to help sweeten and thicken it. Let me know how it goes!
