We went to the PMA (Produce Marketing Association) foodservice show a couple of weeks ago in beautiful Monterey, California, and boy was it grand. Imagine a sea of colorful fruit, veggie and nut-themed booths with friendly people in them who are all giving away tasty treats featuring their produce – everything from guacamole, to fruit smoothies, salads, chocolate covered fruit – you name it, and I was one of those friendly people! We were right in the middle of all the action with our fancy new USA Pears booth, handing out our delectable cupcakes.
Ah yes, it was a produce dream-world of magic. Among my favorite booths was the National Peanut Board’s. They were serving up a super-delicious pear and peanut smoothie, and were kind enough to share their recipe with us. So enjoy this refreshing and slightly exotic-tasting drink, and be sure to visit their website for more tasty peanut-y recipes!
