Dayle has been on a breakfast smoothie kick for a while now. Most weekday mornings she has a spinach, ginger, cucumber, avocado, and frozen banana smoothie. Until this weekend, this was created with the help of a hand blender, like this one. But a couple of weeks ago I started to experiment with a smoothie recipe of my own. I figure anything that can get me off of my double chocolate granola fascination is worth exploring.
This is what I’ve settled on right now: kale, greek yogurt, frozen strawberries, and frozen bananas. The ratios of ingredients still needs some work, but I’m already coming away just as (if not more) satisfied for breakfast with a less severe postprandial blood glucose spike.
But, any long term, dual smoothie in the morning fun required a better solution than a hand mixer. As convenient as a hand mixer is, it felt like time to look for something more.
Then I watched this:
Yes, I was officially sold when I saw how easy cleaning is.
So now we are on Team Vitamix, we have a bunch of strawberries and bananas hanging out in our freezer, and hopefully better, healthier breakfasts are ahead of me.
