Many of your may already have known about this but for those of you who don’t : crushed nuts are the best kept smoothie ingredient secret on the web! Here is the unassuming banana smoothie recipe I found at FoodRepublic that tipped me off. In short, place some chopped nuts (I used pecans) into the blender and pulse until it becomes a fine powder. Then blend in your other smoothie ingredients. The final drink will be just as smooth and tastes like ice cream with nuts on top.

My grandmother used to say
Your neighbor doesn’t have to know when you’re cooking
I might be persuaded to agree with this statement if it refers to noises made while preparing a meal. Smells, though, are another story.
