Quickie Post: POM Wonderful-Banana Smoothie Recipe
After all of the organization that I've been doing around here for the past few days, I'm beat. I thought that maybe I'd take tonight off from blogging about my kitchen endeavors, but this POM Wonderful-Banana smoothie I made for breakfast this morning was just too good (and easy!)not to share. If you think you don't have time for breakfast, check this out.
I used to have a smoothie maker, but I burned up the motor a little over a year ago. Hey, I was on a smoothie kick back then. That tiny little motor just couldn't keep up. After that, I used my blender for a bit...until it went down in a blaze of glory. Seriously...there was smoke. After that, I went on a smoothie hiatus. Not willingly, but I was at a loss for a blending apparatus. Silver lining: I honestly didn't miss washing all of the smoothie maker/blender pieces after my morning smoothie making sessions. Then, this Christmas, I received a Cuisinart CSB-76 Smart Stick Hand Blender Now this is smoothie making at it's finest. I don't have to assemble anything (unless you count twisting on the blending shaft). And I only have to wash one piece. Plus, it comes with it's own little beaker, (pictured below) which is perfect for measuring ingredients and blending the smoothie to perfection. I love my new kitchen toy!
A few seconds of blending and...breakfast is served! Best of all, my kids really liked this too. For about 108 fat-free calories in an 8 oz. serving packed with antioxidants, calcium, potassium, and mood-lifting serotonin, you can't go too wrong!
