In the restaurant we had an entire menu dedicated to healthy smoothies and shakes. We used frozen Bananas as the base to add an “ice cream” texture to the shake. You can see how easy it was to TaylorMake your Shake.
Here was the menu..
Even though we don’t make these in the restaurant anymore, we make them around our house. We LOVE smoothies.
This single serve blender is pretty cool. You can make a 14-ounce smoothie and drink it straight from the tumbler. It’s great for the mornings when you are in a rush. The BEST part for me, NO EXTRA CLEANUP!! Just one container.
You’re not going to spill your drink either, thanks to the handy travel tight-fitting lid with slide-shut opening. It fits in most car drink holders. It’s great for smoothies, shakes and more. My husband packed it in his suitcase for a weekend business trip, which made it super easy for him to have protein smoothies every morning. The cord wraps around the base for easy storage, has Stainless Steel blades and one touch blending. This compact blender would make a great Christmas Gift.
I wanted to share with you my latest morning addiction I am making in this blender. A Maple Pumpkin Pie smoothie. It’s Creamy, healthy and taste just like a liquid pumpkin pie. The frozen banana gives a creamy milkshake type base to this smoothie. You can’t even taste the banana with the addition of pumpkin puree and spices. If you absolutely can’t stand bananas then I would suggest adding 1/4 c vanilla yogurt for more of a creamy texture.
I want to share another awesome little thing….But first..
I need to put a disclaimer: The following is not the intended use of this blender.
It is my own accidental discovery. It makes whip cream in just a few seconds. Let me explain how I stumbled across this. I was making a fall pear and apple crisp and needed some whip cream. My beaters decided to stop working and I have “hand whipped” cream enough times to not ever want to do it again. I really really wanted whip cream to be served on this dessert so I was searching all options before grabbing my bowl & whisk and getting a good arm workout for the next 10 minutes.. I glanced over to see the single serve blender on the counter. Hmmm, I’ve made smoothies in this powerful little thing, I wonder if it will whip this cream. ….
It worked!!! Just pour the heavy whipping cream in, pushed the button and seconds later I had beautiful whipped cream for my dessert.
The 40-ounce capacity blender is perfect when you are making smoothies for the family. Once you use this, you will understand why it is called a “SMART” blender. As a mom of 6 children, I LOVE IT! Having this blender has encouraged my children to create healthy smoothies.
There are a couple things I love about this blender compared to the standard blender.
It is so easy to operate.. a kid can do it..
Here’s what my 10yr old made with it. Chocolate Peppermint MilkShake
The Smoothie Smart blender shuts off automatically – so it doesn’t matter that my 10 yr old forgets to turn it off. Another thing, the no-mess spout means that my kitchen stays
clean cleaner when the kids are creating their smoothie masterpieces. Another cool feature is the 45-second smart blending cycle that is pre-programmed with pulses and speeds to make the perfect smoothie.
WAIT until you see the other amazing things I have been creating in these blenders. I will be posting about it all month…
