Smooth Operator

Smoothies have been rocking my mornings lately. Not only are they super tasty and versatile, but they’re a filling and low-calorie way to get in your recommended fruits and veggies. Below you’ll find my smoothie making dream team ¬†and my favorite smoothie recipe.

Kikkerland Paper Straws – These colorful straws are biodegradable and make mornings a little more fun.

Oster 8-Speed Glass Blender – I’ve been using a Hamilton Beach hand-me-down to mix my smoothies, and I’m on the hunt for a replacement. You can spend lots of money to play “Will it Blend” at home, but this affordable blender gets great reviews.

Aladdin Insulated Tumbler with Straw – When you’re strapped for time, taking a smoothie on the road with you is so much more satisfying than that Luna Bar.

Purple People Eater Smoothie 

Yields 1 smoothie

1 banana

4-5 frozen strawberries

1/3-1/2 cup frozen blueberries

1/2 cup skim milk

1/4 cup fat free vanilla yogurt

Add milk and yogurt to the blender first. Then add frozen fruit and banana. You can vary the amount of frozen fruit to taste. The more blueberries you add, the more tart the flavor will be. Blend until smooth. Makes 1 large serving or two small servings to share. Enjoy!
