I have been using my Magic Bullet so much with the SD that I am afraid I might wear it out! I got mine free from my daughter ..I'll take any cast-off I can get from her! Anway, I like best to mix Slim-Fast high protein, low-carb with frozen fruit and it comes out like ice cream. I take ripe bananas and break them into smaller pieces and throw them in the freezer. Then I blend the frozen bananas with chocolate SF. Also, I take whole frozen strawberries and blend them with vanilla SF or strawberry SF. You can also blend frozen fruit with 1 scoop protein powder, water (or diet pop). Since frozen fruit is fairly expensive, I also take canned and freeze it. You can put crushed pineapple in ice cube trays or cut up peaches and freeze chunks. Frozen mangoes were a splurge that were really good also. Other people have gotten more creative, but I'm all for just throwing things in and going. There was a thread called Shakes or something that we all were into for a while.
I just wanted to share how happy I am that I invested in The Magic Bullet. I have seen it on TV and thought that I don't need any more junk in my tiny kitchen. I have found myself getting bored with the Simple Diet since I do not cook and have a hard time getting creative with vegetables. I bought this little thing from Target for about $60.00 which is not bad considering how much money I have been saving with The Simple Diet (seriously, I only spend about $60.00 a week on food.) This little thing rocks! I toss some frozen fruit and some Slimfast in there and the cylinder has a handle which is great for a filling shake while I am running out the door. I also started making my own fat free humuus with garbanzo beans, paprika, lemon jusice and a bit of water for a nice on the plan veggie dip. I am still working on making a nice salsa for salad dressing. It is easy to clean, easy to use (it is a little loud) and has given me a bit more variety in my plan. Anyone else tried it? Have any good idea for recipes? I was thinking of making a black bean dip. I can't cook so I am not great with coming up with new stuff on my own. Hang in there everyone! We can do this!!!
