Smoothies made SUPER easy

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

This is going to be sort of a product review entry so if you don't like product reviews, you can move along to the next blog emoticon

I have been reading in several places how smoothies have helped people get servings of fruit and vegies more easily. All you need is some ingredients and a blender. I have one of the large blenders and it is such a pain in the rump to get it out, put it all together, then clean up for just one smoothie. I was looking in the small appliance aisle in my local grocery store and came across this little gem:

You make enough smoothie for 1 person, you can put a sports bottle lid on it and be on your way! I found it for $25. It comes with the bottom blending mechanism, a sports bottle, a sports bottle lid, and the lid to put on it that has the blades. You put in the ingredients, put the blade attachment on, turn the sports bottle a little to make the blender turn on, let it run for about a minute, and BOOM you got a smoothie for 1.

I put fresh fruit in containers in the freezer. That way the smoothie is nice and cold when done. This morning I made blackberry, almond milk, and chia seed smoothie with 2 packets of splenda. MMMMMM good! Yesterday I had kale, strawberry, chia seeds and splenda.

What are your favorite smoothie recipes?

    DH uses flaxseed, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, whey powder, and either strawberries blueberries peaches or cherries .... he uses a coffee grinder to grind all the seeds first ... really tasty. roc

    Hmm...I bought that same blender and had to return it because it didn't work. I ended up getting a normal sized blender that is much sturdier. Maybe I just got a crappy one; glad it worked out for you!
