I finally used my blender!!! :)

Saturday, August 18, 2012

OMG, I bought this blender ages ago in hopes to blend up my fruit and veggies, so that I'm not always getting bored with munching on them raw. I finally used the thing today, so that feels like a great accomplishment. And it was delicious. I put 6 strawberries, 1 orange, 1 plum, 20 carrots, 2 cups nonfat milk. It made about 2-4 servings, I believe, but I drank the whole thing. Ice cream will make it thicker and more like a smoothie, but I didn't do icecream and enjoyed the drink just as it was. Oh, I totally just remembered that ice will help thicken the mixture as well. Some people don't like the pulp from blending, but I don't mind it. Yum! What a healthy breakfast!

    I use mine all the time, but instead of ice cream, I add non fat non sweetened yogurt... that boosts the protein and makes it creamy, too!

    Good for you! I love my blenders (I have a stick blender as well, that works wonders for soups) often. If you want "ice cream" without the guilt, do a SparkRecipe search for "Soft Serve Banana Ice Cream." It's become a favorite of mine, and you'd swear it it has cream in it. But it's just frozen banana! I add a tsp of vanilla and 1.5 tsp of maple syrup to mine. Love it!

    I don't know what I'd do without my blender. I use it for many things including "smoothies" and applesauce. I have also made different nut butters in it. Once you are used to it, I'll bet yours becomes a favorite, too.
