My New Favorite Toy!
by Tracey Evans
So I have not posted in the last several weeks. Not because I have not wanted to, but between the holiday’s, birthday’s and work, and more holiday’s, birthday’s and work, I have been a busy bee!
I recently purchased for my birthday, a Ninja blender. Can I tell you how much I love this little jewel!! I have been whipping up the best smoothies on earth and everything else under the sun. I figured with the holiday’s and my birthday, and chocolate cake…. I better start getting in the healthy mode before New Years pops in.
This Ninja blender was a steal at my local Walmart store. I paid $89 for it and it was worth every penny. It has three blades… three!! It honestly works just as good as those pricey ones too. My latest concoction has peanut butter in it and it’s oh so smooth and good. If you have been debating on getting a new blender, try the Ninja, I don’t think you will be disappointed.
Peanut Butter, Banana & Kale Smoothie
1 frozen ripe banana
2 Tbs creamy organic natural peanut butter (I prefer Smucker’s brand)
1 cup vanilla greek yogurt (I prefer Chobani brand)
1 gala apple, rough chopped
1 cup kale
1 cup fresh spinach
1 Tbs golden flax meal (optional – prefer Bob’s Mill)
1 1/2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I prefer Silk brand)
1 cup ice
Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend long enough until everything is smooth. Add more almond milk if needed to thin out. Fell free to add a little honey if you like your smoothie sweeter.
