1. I love smoothies. Pretty much, anything can go in them. I use fruits, spinach, sometimes avocado, plain Greek yogurt, milk, crushed ice, peanut butter, protein powder, honey, chia seeds, and flax seeds. I’ve even added benefiber. Amazing! One great flavor combo is chocolate, peanut butter and banana. How can you go wrong with that?!

  2. I like this idea,I have a small bullet blender and it will be much more user-friendly when all pieces and measuring cups don’t need to be hunted down!!!!

  3. That little basket is just right for the job and I like the color. I have a Ninja Bullet and make smoothies when the weather is warm. I usually use almond milk, frozen bananas, blueberries and toss in some frozen spinach as well. I use the vanilla almond milk and also a scoop of protein powder.
    The smoothie turns out green, which I have gotten used to, but tastes like fruit. I have trouble eating enough protein so the smoothie is a good way to get a protein boost and nutrients.

    1. I wanted to be sure I got proper nutrients after the ankle surgery, so I ordered the bullet blender/smoothie maker.

  4. I use to love those carnation drinks til I got lactose intolerant. Now I can’t drink them anymore. Sigh.
    Have a great weekend Brenda and all your friends too!

    1. I especially like those drinks in smoothies because it means I don’t have to order almond milk as often. I put almond milk on cereal and in oatmeal.

  5. It was nice learning about protein shakes as I see our grocery stores have been making more shelf space for protein mixes so I figured there was a demand for it. I didn’t know much about them nor about freezing the fruit like you do. I have my attachments to my kitchen aid mixer all sitting in a pretty basket on my kitchen counter in a spot away from my dishes cabinets but at least it’s all in one spot for me.

    1. I find that I make things if I have everything organized better. I can fix a smoothie in about 2 minutes total now.

  6. I checked out the smoothie maker – that is a pretty sleek looking machine and the price isn’t bad. I grew up with my Dad making us chocolate malts, YUM. More than sixty years later I still make them for myself occasionally. That’s the only time I use my blender, during the hottest days in summer and I get a yearning for an ice cream malt! I can make them inexpensively at home compared to buying one from one of the custard or ice cream stands around the city, although I will stop at the independents if I’m out and about. I like to give business to local merchants whenever I can, I say no to shakes and malteds from franchisees and, frankly, I don’t think they taste as good as the kind of shakes and malts the independents make.

  7. My husband has had a daily protein drink for years and a few months ago I was feeling pretty low so decided to give it a go. We use Vega One without the sugar, just one scoop has 20g of protein, I mix mine with water but if I feel the need for more protein I mix it with Soy milk. I have looked at all the plant based milks and Soy has the most protein. Vega One is pricy so I keep my eye open for deals on it, I sometimes buy it from Amazon depending on price.

    1. Things are pricey. But a protein drink is a great way to replace breakfast if you’re in my medical situation.

  8. Brenda,
    am not seeing the links to the items for the breakfast smoothie
    am truly interested!
    Thanks, Loui
