I am happy to share with you all that I am now a proud mama to a new blender!
It’s nothing fancy but it will do the job for the time being. I had a kitchen aid in my hands but realized that the $95 price tag was not in our budget at the moment. As I put it back on the shelf I cried a little inside. Another reason why we went with a less expensive model is because this is a new experiment for us. We’re planning on making our own smoothies a few days out of the week but I’m skeptical on whether or not we are going to keep that commitment. It’s not that I don’t want to make fresh, healthy, smoothies for myself but I am realistic with my mentality when it comes to adding something new into my life. I have to go through a trial period to see if it’s something that will stick or sink. While we were out grocery shopping yesterday, we picked up all of the necessities to give this trial period one hell of a run.
I present to you, my first fruit smoothie made from scratch (I know, sad isn’t it).
I added 1/2 cup of low-fat yogurt, a scoop of vanilla soy protein and a modest amount of ice.
After a few minutes of smoothie blending, I ended up with this.
My smoothie batch made about 2 cups of pure deliciousness. I enjoyed my smoothie for lunch and still feel satisfied two hours later. I have a good feeling about this smoothie thing ;). I have some major studying to do for this menu test and I want to get it in before my Patriots game… GO PATS!
Have you had any smoothie love lately?
