I’ve been a big comic book fan ever since I was a little girl. I remember being a toddler and feeling frustrated that I couldn’t read, because my dad had a novelization of the Supergirl movie and I wanted to be able to read it, too! I’ve gone as almost every comic book character for Halloween, made my own X-Men crafts out of corndog sticks, and even created my own Incredible Hulk-inspired gingerbread man!
My culinary skills have gotten a little more advanced since then, it’s true. 😉 But I still have fun coming up with comic book-inspired recipes for special occasions – like the time I threw a Spider-Man themed party and made a Green Goblin Veggie Platter! Since I’ve been eating healthier the past few years, I take it as a challenge when I need to come up with recipes that are compatible with my goals but still party-friendly. I think I managed to do that with my latest drink creation, a smoothie that is super healthy but still tasty enough to be enjoyed by anyone, including kids. It’s the perfect drink to enjoy on a hot summer day like today – preferably while keeping cool inside watching the latest Marvel show on Netflix!
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1 cup Almond Milk
Add all ingredients to blender and mix until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
Just like my smoothie bridges the gap between healthy food and “Treats”, the new generation of Marvel programming has brought both comic book nerds and casual viewers together with shows that have something for everyone. You don’t have to know every origin story to enjoy the dark, edgy storylines in Jessica Jones or root for the underdog in Luke Cage. Meanwhile, hardcore fans can enjoy new and compelling adventures – one of my big pet peeves with comic book adaptations is when they rehash the same plots over and over again. I know how Wolverine got his powers, let’s see what he actually does with them!
Bringing different worlds and tastes together is part of the fun of spending time with other people – so go on, grab a friend, make some smoothies, and compare notes on Daredevil!
What shows do you use to “Bridge the gap” in your family?
