Jalapeno in smoothies = teh jesus


TRIBE Promoter
after trying hapanero honey brew i developed a serious taste for fresh hotness in my beverages. it's one thing to chuck some spices in your tea, and it's quite another to include fresh hot peppers.

...so anyway i got home and tried throwing some jalapeno slices into a smoothie, now i'm completely hooked.

just try it. it kicks some serious ass.

i find half a medium sized jalapeno is good for a normal blender. i've been doing them with more lately, but i think it's probably better to start with half if you've never tried it.

What else do you put in the smoothie?

I can't imagine it going well with my usual fruit, soy milk and protein powder smoothie.


TRIBE Member
Gonna have hot peppers ready to harvest shortly. I might actually bite the bullet and give this one a try.

That sounds horrible...but then again, so did Keiths & Clamato till I tried it.

I tried beer and clamato recently, and I was pleasantly surprised.

This doesn't seem too out there. Cayenne is used in some of the smoothies at Fresh, I believe. I'd try it too.

in much of mexico and central america, chillies or chilli sauce is commonly served with fruit as well. I love the sweet/hot combination, it's a mouth fiesta of unparalleled good times.

anyone try it yet?

i really want to move on to hapanero soon, but i've got lots of jalapenos to finish first...

apparently hapanero is the real way to go though.

hmm, maybe. I do love chillies in chocolate.


lots of ice
1 banana
1 or 2 kiwis
1/2 a lemon
brown sugar to taste
1/2 a jalapeno, or use hapanero to taste (careful with the hapaneros!)
top off with cold water or appropriate juice

***optional - handful of cilantro - makes it taste like summer!
***optional - rum or spiced rum

beer and Clamato? what the......!!!!!

who's in charge here?!

Ummm....it's a staple in Saskatchewan.

I'm surprised you haven't heard of it.

Even better, Beer and Orange Juice.

Mmm....Cool and refreshing.


TRIBE Member
I'm honestly surprised too, considering my abiding love for all that is Clamato!

I'm a bit confused as to WHY I haven't tried this.

I know someone who enjoys what she refers to as a "beezer". This involves ordering a caesar, a pint and and an extra glass and mixing the two in some certain proportion in the extra glass. I'm not sure how I feel about this...I like both seperately but not sure about combining the 2.

The Keiths & Clamato thing is huge out east. Actually a friend of mine recently visited Halifax and picked it up there. Apparently the mixture somehow creates something that helps you retain water...thus also making it a hangover cure.

Yeah, my friend said that the beezer is her hangover cure. I guess the water retention thing is probably because of all the sodium in the clamato.
