The other day my brother walked into my room – called my name – and said look at this.
It was a massive glass bowl of something resembling a sunrise or sunset – I am not quite sure.
And this was unusual because we are stick blender people. Nothing fancy when it comes to smoothies: Banana & water, or Banana, apple and water, or Banana with peanuts (soaked or not) – well you get the idea. Pretty simple stuff though admittedly sometimes a ripe mango, or kiwi, or handful of frozen blueberries can make their way in.
My brother announced: “Carrot & banana – just dice up the carrots ahead of time and the stick blender will do its work and no need to toss away any fibers.” Do have to say it is a fine combo.
Though, at the same time, I realize there are much more refined techniques and ingredients for the ultimate in smoothie making.
So please tell us your favorite smoothie inventions. Also share what tools / machines you use as well as the season- ie. what you make in summer & winter.
Lastly, will try and share some of the great recipes Bethanne (Eating Healthy seminar facilitator) has presented to us in those programs.
