So, I have a new toy...
On the weekend I purchased a Magic Bullet...Deluxe!!
I admit, a bit of an impulse purchase, but we're heading into "smoothie" season and my blender had bit the dust.
Wanting just a basic "blend and drink" smoothie machine, I first checked Canadian Tire, but then I upgraded for about five dollars more and picked up my Deluxe version at Costco.
Why not a new blender? The smallness of the Magic Bullet was appealing as I have limited counter space.
I tried two experiments today...a traditional smoothie...pretty, pink, tasty...
Strawberry Banana Smoothie
1/4 cup raspberry yogurt
1/4 cup orange juice
I also tried a veggie smoothie...not so pretty, lumpy, and very brown... : (
IT WAS TASTY, HOWEVER, and definitely healthy, but I realize now, choosing colours carefully is an important aspect of making a smoothie!!
Veggie Smoothie, Version #1
(probably never to be repeated again, but a lesson learned)
1/2 cup last night's salad with light vinaigrette
(spinach, daikon, craisins, cabbage slaw)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
5 cherry tomatoes
1/3 cup orange juice
So, who has a tasty veggie smoothie recipe (that's not quite so brown!!!) to share?
