Red Robin......YUM!

So lately it seems there has been an increase in Red Robin commercials. I love Red Robin and haven't eaten there in so long! My favorite thing to eat there is the Bonzai Burger and I absolutely love the Hawaiian Heartthrob Smoothie while my husband enjoys the A1 Peppercorn Burger. I thought to myself, I could probably make the stuff myself so I set out to find any info I could. Basically it came down to me reading from the menu online what was on the burgers and in the smoothie then making it up myself. The spread for the A1 burger I did find more information for on RecipeZaar.com. They said that they use Heinz 51, A1 peppercorn sauce and mayo. There were no ratios so I just kind of added until it looked right and made my husband taste it. For my burger, I marinated the burger in the terriyaki sauce and grilled the pineapple. It was tasty!! I baked our french fries for 2 reasons. The first reason being we didn't have enough oil for me to fry them fried (I thought I still had some oil in my pantry...my bad!) the second reason was, well lets be honest, it's just a little bit healthier.





Now for my FAVORITE part of dinner tonight, the Hawaiian Heartthrob Smoothie!!




Ok, so I looked on Recipezaar to see if they had a recipe and there was definitely a recipe but when I compared it to the ingredients from the menu, they were a little different. The menu is really vague but just says what is in it so it was up to me to come up with the portions. Here is what I came up with:

Serving is for 1 person

1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/2 banana
1 tsp grenadine
2 TBSP coconut cream
1/2 cup frozen strawberries in syrup (aka in sugar)
ice until you reach the consistency you desire.

Blend it all together and enjoy! OMG SOOO good! At least in my opinion.
