It has been hard getting back into the swing of things! I know it’s a bit late to be talking about Christmas gifts, but there’s one I got that I just have to share with you. I received the Nutri Ninja and have fell in love with smoothies all over again! In fact, I’ve been making them every day for breakfast and taking them to work with me. I feel less guilty having the smoothies for breakfast since I’m getting in my fruits and veggies (especially since I haven’t been exercising nearly as much as I’d like).
It’s crazy quick and blends everything so smoothly, that I’m not convinced that a blender can never compete. I’ve added flax seed, hemp hearts, and other things that never really blended well before. Now, I use them all the time, and as Bren said “I don’t think you can make a bad smoothie.” We usually start with frozen fruit, add in our Vega protein powder, and then top with almond milk. Lately, I’ve also added the flax seeds and hemp hearts in for extra bonus.
Once we added peanut butter and it was like heaven! I just bought some spinach and can’t wait to begin adding more vegetables to my breakfast. It totally helps me feel better about what I eat the rest of the day (though I still try to be good). I know these are a bit expensive, but I swear that if you have the chance to pick up one, you should do it! We have the Auto-IQ since it has the capability to blend ice. I guess some of the lower end ones don’t, so make sure you read the specs before you buy. You definitely want one that can handle ice, that way you know it can also handle frozen fruit!!
