This month’s Food ‘n Flix Challenge is the movie Wreck-It Ralph, which is a family favorite. I was inspired to create this Cherry Bomb Smoothie based on the race held toward the end of the movie. My kids love video games, and we enjoy playing racing games together, so I loved the “Cherry Bomb” power used during the race where the racers set off cherry bombs from the side of the Royal Raceway track using sparks from their exhaust. These cherries line the race track as the racers make their way to the top of a multi-tiered chocolate cake.
Wreck-It Ralph is a fun movie where we get a chance to step inside multiple video games and get to the know the characters staring in those games. Ralph is our main character, who is tired of being the “bad guy” and he works throughout the movie to be recognized as an important part of his game. Ralph ends up on many adventures during the course of the movie. The movie is so popular, that Disney is releasing a follow up, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, scheduled to be released Thanksgiving 2018.
