My grandmother, with whom I share the same middle name, used to sing a little song to me when I was little prior to tickling me with her fingers (which posed as a bee), "There once was a bee who lived in a tree; and all he could do was bzzzzz sting, sting, sting sting...." (then the tickling ensued).

This site is in memory of her and the warmth all grandmothers and mothers give in making good food and creating memories in the kitchen.

Tropical Protein Smoothie

This is a twist off a drink I served at a restaurant where I worked as a teenager. I tweaked it and added some Greek yogurt to make it more protein friendly.

1 frozen banana
6 oz. Pineapple Juice
1/2 c. Greek yogurt
1/4 c. ice
1 dash vanilla
2 T sugar

Mix it all up into a blender until smooth.

*If I did my math right, this shake should have about 11 g protein.
