My Favorite Smoothie

While my mom was visiting, I was lucky enough to receive an early birthday present (1.5 month countdown - holler!). I've been watching infomercials about the Magic Bullet for as long as I can remember. The commercials are always so tempting, but who really knows if those things are going to work? The bullet was highly recommended by friends & colleagues as the best and most convenient way to make smoothies, and of course margaritas. So we went for it.


I haven't had a blending device since living on my own, so the past 6 days of smoothies for breakfast have been absolute bliss. I'm sure there are about a bazillion different combinations you can make, but my go to is the recipe below. And if anyone's in the market for a magic bullet - buy the one from Costco, not Bed, Bath & Beyond. You get way more gadgets and extras for a lower price. Score.

Katherine's Favorite Smoothie
  • 6 strawberries
  • 1 1/2 c. spinach
  • 1/2 c. fancy frozen berry medley (from Trader Joe's)
  • 1/4 c. nonfat vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 blueberries (or raspberries, or a half a peach, whichever you have on hand)
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder (mixed with a splash of water)
  • 1/2 tbl. chia seeds
- Blend.
- Drink. Murmur "mmm!" after each sip.
- Get really excited that your smoothie was only 235 calories, and you'll be full for hours.
