Smoothies (and smoothie bowls) may be one step away from baby food, but unlike the stuff in the tiny jars, you get to control what goes in it. (Which probably means ending up with something closer to “Tutti Frutti” than “Turkey Dinner With Vegetables,” but to each their own).

If you consider yourself a smoothie connoisseur, you may be interested to hear about a new position that pays $25,000 to tap into your knowledge of blended fruits and vegetables. Here’s what you need to know.

  • Sharing tips for making smoothies
  • Hosting a virtual event to help consumers add “smoothie bowl master” to their resumes

How to apply
