I always love getting packages, but I have to say, yesterday’s takes the (gluten-free) cake! I got a Blendtec blender via FedEx yesterday! Now I knew it was coming, but the joy of anticipation just made it even more fun!
I have never had a good blender. I don’t know why, but they just break down on me! So, when Blendtec offered to send me one of their Designer Series blenders to use and blog about with my gluten-free recipes, I was ecstatic! Now that I’ve received this thing, I’m even more ecstatic. We’re still in the stages of trying it out (actually I wonder if I’ll ever get a turn with it, my hubby is so excited he’s kind of commandeered it for now).
Yesterday we whipped up 2 things with it (and boy do I ever mean “whipped up”)!!! We made our classic Fruit Smoothies and then tackled milkshakes in the evening. It wayyyy exceeded my expectations. Seriously, it just blends! It doesn’t smoke, shake, or act like it’s going to explode. It just does its job.
Here’s our smoothie recipe, which really isn’t a recipe per se, you just throw in whatever fruit you have, in whatever quantities you prefer, but here’s our favorite:
- 2 cups plain yogurt (I have a yogurt maker with the individual cups, which I think hold a little less than a cup each, and I use two of them – this is just an average)
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- Handful of spinach, de-stemmed
- Stevia to taste
No chunks, that’s for sure!
Keep an eye out, I’ll be posting lots more recipes using my new “toy” in the coming weeks, and if you hang tight, I might even be having a giveaway. Yes, seriously, a giveaway!
