Yesterday, I tried the Ninja for the first time, and what a home run, wow. It took, seriously, no longer than about 7 seconds to make a perfectly-blended smoothie — no stopping to stir, no scraping the sides down, no chipping with a knife at the bottom, nothin’.
The recipe was for a strawberry-banana drink, but I was out of strawberries. So I improvised, and this is what I came up with. It was dandy, I must say.
Black Raspberry-Banana Smoothie
1/2 cup each blackberries, raspberries, vanilla yogurt and Diet Sprite
About a cup of smallish ice cubes (maybe 6 regular sized)
Handful of pecan halves
Schlep it all in there and zoom. It made two smoothies, so I froze one and slurped it this morning.
Now I’m off to the school house…Yay! Truthfully, it feels OK to be back at it. I need a routine.
