I have no idea really, but honey might be an interesting one. The proverbial milk and honey might be the combo you seek. A little bit of sweetening is all you need. I think that some fruits high in acid may cause problems with the milk curdling, just a thought. Mango might make for a pleasant smoothie.

Yum sounds great I'll have to mix some up! But why did you enter this into the robotics contest? The only thing I can see that would be remotly a robot is the blender and you did not make any mods to it to crush the nuts better or make a robot to make the drink for you. now thats an idea!

Well I didn't on purpose. It was an accident. But if you really have to know I am the robot in question and I was thirsty.

Yes, but only if you carefully place the liquid into two specially constructed flesh colored joy bags.

That's funny Timmy, I must have checked the wrong box. Give me a second and see if I can fix that.

oh. I was not saying it in a mean way.

WhistlePig (author)timmy1234s2008-07-08

I really didn't take it as such Timmy, I just wanted to correct the problem but they don't make that easy for some reason. Might be easier for me to just wait it out seems it'll be over in a few days anyway. Sorry about that.

WhistlePig (author)timmy1234s2008-07-08
