recipe: smoothies

I got myself an Oster personal blender recently and it is the best investment I have made recently.

I love this one because it’s small enough for my tiny studio apartment kitchen and doesn’t take too much space.

Also, it’s a lot cheaper than others out there (I paid about $23 versus $100). I didn’t want to spend too much on a personal blender just yet in case I use it a few times then never use it again.

I know a love of people love green smoothies. I have tried some and wasn’t a huge fan. I’ve been sticking to mostly fruit smoothies but do intend to eventually create some yummy green smoothies too.

Some of my favorite blends include:

  • Strawberries, Bananas and Vanilla Almond Milk
  • Chocolate Almond Milk, Bananas and Peanut Butter
  • Vanilla Almond Milk, Bananas and Berries (i.e., Blueberries, Raspberries and Strawberries)

The options are practically endless. I love using bananas because I get charlie horses all the time in my calves if I’ve had an intense work out schedule that week.

I cannot wait to check out farmers markets this spring and summer to grab what’s in season and see what new concoctions I create!

What are some of your favorite blends?
