Da Bomb

June 29, 2010 at 8:26 am 9 comments

I am still one of the few people in this world who will whip out the old phrase “da bomb” every so often.  I also like to say “raise the roof” and “homey don’t play that”.  I am living 10 years behind everyone else.

But the Chocolate Cherry Bomb IS da bomb!  It was part of my complete breakfast this morning.

The Cherry Bomb included:

  • 1 frozen banana, sliced
  • Handful of frozen, pitted cherries
  • 1 cup of 1% milk
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder

I contemplated putting spinach in this, but I really love the colour as it is.  I love drinking pink things (that aren’t artificially dyed pink, that is!).

I had it along with two pieces of whole wheat toast with margarine.  One of my favourite combos – the warm with the cold!

I will never grow tired of this image.  NEVER!

I noticed that cherries are $2.50 a pound so I feel like just going hog wild, buying $20 worth, and freezing them all tonight.  Or would that just be too crazy?

      It is excellent and healthy! Use less milk and it becomes like soft-serve ice cream 🙂

    I gave in to the cherry bomb this weekend and definitely yum!

    I would say go for it with freezing cherries (I do stuff like that all that time), but do you have a cherry pitter? Otherwise, what is your technique? That’s my one complaint about cherry bombs, the pitting.

      Isn’t the Cherry Bomb amazing? I really want to try it with spinach.

      I don’t have a cherry pitter so I just cut them in half and remove the pit. I actually don’t mind this task too much (somewhat meditative doing a repetitive task!) but my hands and cutting board get all pink!

        It is! I didn’t even freeze the cherries or banana once and it was awesome. When I did freeze it, Dave couldn’t believe I didn’t throw in cookies (we have a giant tupperware someone brought us of chocolate cookies) to make it richer.

        That’s my main concern (pink hands!). Other than that, it doesn’t bother me much either. And anyways, that’s why there’s soap 🙂

    I love your blog, because I need to be frugal (I’m a graduate student and will be for 5 more freaking years). Cannot wait to read and learn more!

      I wish I included more frugal tips. Hopefully I will in the future!

    I raise the roof daily.

Eating well and living frugally does not always come easy, but Lord help me, I am trying! This blog will detail my endeavor to live the best life possible. This will include pictures of my cats, odes to almond butter, and the general miscellany that makes up my life. Enjoy!
