Heineken Smoothie

In drink on June 7, 2010 at 2:07 am

Add some zing to your breakfast!

I’m not a big fan of beer. You’ll only find a beer in my hand at the office O Bar party. But that’s only because there’s nothing else to drink, and I have nothing else to do with my hands. But this, my dear friends, is one beer I’ll gladly drink.

I first heard about the Heineken smoothie from colleagues who have been to Heineken’s Breakfast Club. Since drinking in the morning makes you look like an alcoholic, those folks from Heineken and the Breakfast Club found a way to make it look harmless. Mix it with a fruit blend. So, while everyone’s thinking, “My, what a healthy drink you’re having,” you’re actually drinking beer at 8am. Heh heh!

The smoothie I made had mango, cucumber and possibly a third fruit I don’t remember. No, I didn’t get drunk. It was some time ago and I didn’t write down what I used. I think the trick is to get fruits with a smooth texture, like mango or banana. You can probably add something with a little more twang, like kiwi or orange, but just a little, because you don’t want them to overpower the beer. Like cocktails, you just got to experiment.

P.S. That half-boiled eggs in the background of the picture, it wasn’t my breakfast. It was my dinner.

Shopping list: beer and fruits

Hardware: blender

Can I do this?: Are you kidding me? You know how to use a blender, right?

  1. Hmmm, I’m not a big beer fan either and I hate operating the blender – how ah?

    • Try it and you might change your mind. Bring a chilled can of beer the next time you come over and I’ll make you a smoothie. Heineken and Hoegaarden are good because they are very mild in taste. The fruits will tone down the beer taste anyway. Hey! You went to Oktoberfest and got the T-shirt! What are you merepeking about?

      Anyway, the blender is my best friend now because I’m having fruit blend for my dinners. Three fruits in the blender, with a touch of ginger – quite filling! Dinner in 10 minutes. I miss eggs though, which used to be my staple dinner.

  2. Okay I’ve got to give this a try!!!!
