Me, while drinking a smoothie: You know, I bet Tim Drake is the one guy among his siblings that makes and enjoys smoothies.
And not just the normal fruit-and-milk ones. I’m talking about the weird health-food concoctions with ingredients you’ve never even thought about putting into your blender. Like avocados. Butternut squash. Cacao powder. Peanut butter. Kale. Licorice.
The only thing Tim won’t put in a smoothie is coffee.
As for Tim’s smoothies, they’re either really good or make-you-gag bad. Jason was once handed a blue cheese abomination that made him hurl, and Dick jumped out a window to avoid being guilted into a “smoothie” that was completely black and occasionally bubbled. Meanwhile, Damian got handed an actually-good matcha-cucumber drink, while Steph scored a chocolate-banana special.
The only people who will eat Tim’s smoothies without fear (besides Tim) are Cass and Bruce. Cass, because she likes seeing Tim light up when he shares his creations, and because she has taste buds of steel - as long as the food isn’t spoiled, she can eat it with a straight face. Bruce, on the other hand, actually enjoys all of the smoothies. Yes, even the blue cheese abomination - Jason was beyond words when he walked back from the bathroom to see Bruce sipping a glass of the stuff.
Alfred, for all that he prefers the smoothies to coffee, despairs for Tim. “Smoothies are not proper substitutes for meals, Master Tim.” “Why not? This has all the fiber and vitamins of three servings of broccoli, Alfred. I even added fish oil for the omega fatty acids!” “You need to eat solid food.” “Solid food is inefficient.”
