Brief instructions on creating a gummy bear fruit smoothie.

Special thanks go to Mitsi for her initial twittered idea for a Reese's cup omelet which spawned a series of Twitters that turned into this glorious piece of culinary masterwork.

Step 1: Getting started

To make this culinary delight, I used:
1 pound of gummy bears
1 banana
a quantity of frozen fruit (I eyeballed this part)
2 cups of whole milk
4 scoops of rainbow sherbet
a quantity of ice (also eyeballed) (not pictured)

I think all told this cost me about 15 dollars at Meijer. Most people probably have milk and fruit in their house. I didn't.

lol what a concept
:) Did you try it?
um, would it hurt your feelings if I said no?
YES!! j/k We were thinking for the next project.....hot tamale muffins with a melted pixie stick glaze :) Or lemonhead cupcakes.
Oh, well in that case I did try them They were so awesome! I made 8 batches I sold em for a nickel each And I ended world hunger no, I didn't make it ... yet
yay stopping world hunger!!! you at a beauty pagent?
I love hot tamales!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
omg its way to sugary *barf*
I love this! My kids will be equal parts horrified and hungry! One thing I will try is Freezing the gummis and putting them in the blender, so hopefully they will be chopped up.
you rock
This is gross.
I can't stop laughing about this. It's a bit crazy to put some gummi bears in a cooking vessel and melt them together and then put them in the blender together with some fruit. LOL!
how do you think gummy bears feel about being made into a smoothie??<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=astISOttCQ0&amp;feature=related">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=astISOttCQ0&amp;feature=related</a><br/><br/>lol<br/>
I suspect that something like a BlendTec or other commercial grade blender would make quick work of the gummi bears. Otherwise you might just end up with shredded gummies.
have you seen the blendtec videos on youtube? that monster can blend just about anything =D<br/>
I love SSSUUUGGGAAARRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
woah who gave Jupitane sugar?
will it actually work to blenderize the gummies without melting? maybe some kind of food processor would do that, but a blender wouldn't really fragment them well?
i bet mine can
sounds great thanks
Mmmm. But I fear melting the gummi bears destroys some of the fun of using them as a base! Half the fun would come from finding the occasional dismembered bear arm or head in my smoothie.
And,as he said,the molten gummi bears may "clog" the blades.
Hmm...I think you're right. Dismembered gummi bears would be a bonus.
