This has been a summer of smoothie fun. My hubby and I got a Ninja individual smoothie blender a few months ago and it has changed our lives (well, mine anyway). The blender we had previously was such a tedious beast to use. It would get stuck on the smallest piece of fruit and would need to be stirred several times during the blending process. Which resulted in a mess and a hassle. Now, the Ninja blazes through frozen fruit like a breeze, and the whole event is quick and easy.
Today’s smoothie recipe:
– 1 Cup of a frozen fruit blend from my grocery store (this one is strawberry, pineapple, mango, peach, and red grape)
– 1/2 of a ripe banana
– One Scoop of Shaklee’s Life Energizing Shake (the dairy-free/soy-free version) for extra protein
– 1 Cup of plain soy milk
And that’s it! It tasted fantastic, and was gone in a flash. Yay, smoothies!
