Own a Piece of Star Wars History, Now on Blu-Ray
The 8th film of epic saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi brings so many memories, so much heartache and always hope.

Having an Asian Star Wars role model for these two kids to look up to alone – it’s enough to have me buying into this film.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Smoothie
One of my favorite new places in this movie was the planet of Crait. The beautiful white sands covering the vibrant red salt mines were the perfect backdrop for the final battle of the film. So fitting, I thought making a Crait Smoothie would be a fun way to celebrate the at-home release.
What You Will Need:
- 1 cup Fresh Strawberries, cut
- 1/2 cup Strawberry Yogurt
- 1/4 cup Vanilla Yogurt
- Blend Strawberries and strawberry yogurt together until smooth. Pour into glass.
- Top and spread a thin layer of vanilla yogurt on top to create the white sand on top of the “red salt” layer.
- Get fancy and add a straw topper with a Porg. How cute!
- Now the best part – Enjoy!
