From Great American Smoothies: The Ultimate Blending Guide for Shakes, Slushes, Desserts, & Thirst Quenchers

Except for the polar bear; most bears are dark in color and are usually peaceful and timid unless disturbed. If you happen to surprise a bear, especially a mother with cubs, you have two choices. One, slowly back away and act like you don’t exist; or two, offer it a Smokey Bear smoothie. This is one of my favorites – cool, refreshing and filling.
Yield: 4 cups
3 cups soy milk
3 tablespoons carob powder
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 cup firm tofu
2 ripe bananas
2 tablespoons honey
1. Place all ingredients in a blender, and mix on medium speed for 30 seconds.
2. Place the smoothie mixture in the freezer for 5 minutes, until chilled.
3. Pour into tall glasses, serve, drink your fill and go into hibernation.
