Tasty Thursday

It's time to treat yourself like the princess you really are! One hot day this summer, cool down with this refreshing fruit smoothie from Spa Princess Cookbook by Barbara Beery. And if your lips are feeling a little parched, the spa treatment lip gloss will really make them shine!

Magical Fruit Burst
1 banana, sliced and frozen
1/2 cup peeled and chopped pear or apple
1/2 cup vanilla soymilk
1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 orange or tangerine slices
1/4 cup granola

Place banana slices and chopped pear or apple into a blender. Add soymilk and blend. Add orange juice and vanilla and blend once more until frothy and smooth. Serve with an orange or tangerine slice on the rim of the glass and a sprinkle of granola on top.

Makes 2 servings

Pink Lemonade Lip Shimmer
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
1 tablespoon presweetened pink lemonade drink mix

Stir shortening and drink mix together in a small microwave-safe container until smooth. Place container in microwave and heat for 15–20 seconds.

Chill in refrigerator at least 30 minutes to solidify. Apply to lips. (Do not eat!) Will keep for 1 week.
