You don’t need the Kitchen Ninja to make this awesome power-smoothie. If you have a blender, you’re good.

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
1/2 banana
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.

    Throw a handful of baby spinach in there, Fink. It’s really great for you and you’ll hardly know it’s there! Really!

      Yes yes, that’s the plan! I just haven’t been to the grocery yet. I’m also going to try some of that Greens First stuff ( I loathe vegetables, as you know, but I’m not opposed to strategically hiding them so I don’t have to suffer their revolting flavor.
