Red's "Super Muscle Yum" Smoothie and Pancake Puffs

Super. Muscle.Yum. That's what the almost 4 year old in the house has decided his latest smoothie concoction should be called. He claims it will give you big muscles like Superman. There are no studies to back this up, but his testimony alone should make you run to your blenders to make some right away!

He really did make this one up, he just tells me what he wants in it and we blend it up in the blender and taste. this one was not half bad. I could see adding oats or flax or even granola for texture and even more protein. We didn't really measure-so this is all estimation...

Super Muscle Yum Smoothie

1 container Light Banana Cream Pie Yogurt
a touch of milk
2 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp honey
1/2 cup frozen banana slices
1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
6-8 ice cubes

Throw it all in a blender-liquidy ingredients first. Blend until smooth. Drink. Get big muscles.

Pancake Puffs really have nothing to do with this recipe but the kid becomes mesmerized every time he sees the infomercial for this product on TV. HE stands there almost salivating as he watches them fill these little donut style puffy pancakes with things like strawberry sauce and chocolate whipped cream. Then he jumps up and down and says, "Mommy! Mommy! We NEED to get that! We NEED Pancake Puffs!"

Shoot, we NEED this? Well damn, I had no idea! I'm totally going to have to look into buying this Pancake Puff contraption, which you already know is $19.99 plus s&h. I am a bit disappointed though that there's no "order now and receive TWO pancake puff pans for the same low price" offer. Ah well, I guess its worth it though-I mean who doesn't love to eat sweet doughy goodness stuffed with gooey goodness?
People are talking about these little round puffy balls of goodness...I googled and quickly came across blog after blog post about them. Miss FickleMedia was convinced by a young wise one to get the pan and it has changed her life! diversionwednesday calls it the "future of food." and Domestic Spaz quite a few others are talking about the joy pancake puffs have brought to their children's lives.

How could i even consider depriving my child of the utter elation a pancake puff provides? I guess I'll be making a Target run sometime this weekend...there are rumors that Target carries this culinary gadget from heaven.
