I started daydreaming of an alternate solution... and then it came to me - SMOOTHIES! I could get more fresh fruit into my diet and trick my sweet tooth. Lacey has been posting sweet smoothie recipes and I knew I had to give this a try.
Like a typical New Yorker, I keep a bare minimum of kitchen supplies and therefore didn't even own a blender. After a few searches on Amazon, I ordered the Oster My Blend 250-Watt Blender. At only $30 this was a perfect smoothie maker for me. I loved the orange color, you can blend the smoothie right in the sport bottle (easy clean up!), it's dishwasher safe (not that I have a dishwasher), had great reviews and they also send recipes in the instruction manual to try!
Any tips on making a delicious smoothie? Do you prefer soy milk or orange juice? Do you use a lot of ice? What are your favorite fruits to mix? Do you use fresh or frozen fruit? Please tell me I can't mess up a smooth recipe!
