Twin Sun Smoothie

A refreshing beverage — perfect for when you feel like you’re on a desert planet.

Even on the tough terrain of Tatooine, fruit was a part of the desert diet. Hubba gourds were a food staple of the Jawas and while they were a little sour, if you used them just right they could be used as drink ingredient, perfect for a hot Tatooine day.

Since hubba gourds aren’t plentiful around here, pink lemons are an ideal substitute. Green with a yellowish hue on the outside just like hubba gourds, these sweet lemons bring out the fruit flavors for a classic frozen smoothie. Add two slices on the outer rim of your glass to mimic the twin suns of the scorching desert planet. Why not trade a Jawa one of these refreshing drinks for a droid or two?
