I LOVE MY NEW BLENDER!! My husband gave me a new red blender for Valentine’s Day! I have been using it every day since then! It is so much better than my old one. Today, I put it to the test….
It’s ISAT week at school for the kids. My son’s baseball team is doing indoor training. He had a late practice last night and I needed to make sure he was bright-eyed and thinking this morning! I remembered a juice I had made a while back that had awesome stars including 5 energy stars. It’s called Pineroot. I decided to incorporate it into a smoothie to liven us all up this morning.
2 cups apple juice (I used Simply Apple.)
1 sweet potato
20 oz can pineapple (with juice.)
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt
I did not peel the sweet potato but I did cut it into smaller pieces to help the blender a little. You can do the same with the carrots. Add the rest and mix well.
We all agreed this was…choose a word: gritty, stringy, thick, pulpy. I thought the taste was great, it did have some texture issues though. I was very impressed with how my new red blender handled the sweet potato, all things considered! Also, I’m not sure if it was just in my head, but I didn’t feel sleepy today like normal! Hopefully the kids didn’t either!!
