That’s So Smoothie

I’m a big smoothie fan.  I have one every day at work – they’re always delicious, well-made, and healthy.  But then I get to the weekend and I don’t have smoothies and I get just a little bit sad (smoothie sad, not serious sad).  All of that is about to change my friends!  Over the holidays, I have acquired tools with which to make my own smoothies. Hooray!

I am now the proud owner of a NutriBullet.  It’s not fancy – It’s essentially a higher powered MagicBullet with a fancier blade, but it will do the trick! Ignoring all of the recipes for smoothies in the NutriBullet handbook, I did some experimenting this afternoon… and as I write this, I’m enjoying a delicious kale-pineapple-berry-flax smoothie.  It’s greener than any smoothie I have ingested before, but definitely a tasty treat.  And it took no time at all to make!  I may liquefy all of my meals from now on.

One thought on “That’s So Smoothie

  1. If you’re in a chocolatey protein mood:

    Chocolate almond milk
    Banana (or half depending on how banana-y you’d like it)
    a tbsp-ish of peanut butter, almond butter or other nut butter
    Protein powder
    Ice cubes

    My imitation of the Sonic Soy from Booster Juice:

    – Frozen blueberries
    – Greek Plain (or vanilla) Yogurt
    – A couple frozen strawberries
    – Half a banana if I feel like it
    – Vanilla Soy or Almond milk

    (Basically you want blueberry and vanilla- YUM!)

    I always have availiable and you can create in the morning:
    – Blueberries (I buy frozen in bulk)
    – Mangoes (I buy frozen in bulk)
    – Strawberries (I buy frozen in bulk)
    – Raspberries (I buy frozen in bulk)
    – Yogurt (I do plain greek)
    – Milk (soy, almond, rice whatever you prefer in any flavour)

    And if you want, I recently found out you can make your own almond milk!
