Good morning! TGIF!!
You guys know that my favorite kitchen gadget of all time is the Magic Bullet. I bought my first one two years ago and, well…I killed it. It’s been dying a slow and painful death from too much love and I knew it wasn’t going to last the week. So I headed to Bed, Bath, & Beyond to buy a new one on Wednesday (no time to even wait to have it shipped from Amazon!)…I didn’t want to risk a day without the MB!
It’s a good thing I was proactive. By yesterday morning, the original was a goner. I mean, I got my money’s worth. I melted the cord by leaving it on the stove a few times…and there may have been a lot of former smoothie and guacamole souvenirs encrusted in the base…it will be missed.
But I decided to welcome the new one with a great recipe!
- 1-2 scoops vanilla protein powder
- 1 cup iced green tea (just brew it hot the night before and then let chill overnight in the fridge)
- 3/4 cup cubed honeydew melon, frozen
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp macadamia nut butter (if handy)
- Fresh chopped mint (optional)
Put all the ingredients in the Magic Bullet…
Put it on the base, turn it on, and marvel at its speed and power. (Seriously, I didn’t even realize how bad the old one was!)
And if you call within the next five minutes…you get this amazing breakfast!
I just love this smoothie mix; it’s super refreshing for summer! It reminds me a little bit of the yummy tummy smoothie — just an unexpected and great deviation from what you’re used to!
I call it the “sparkling” smoothie because the honeydew really does give it a sparkly flavor (and the green tea adds a pick-me-up). The coconut oil and macadamia butter were two new additions that I added this time that worked out very well. You can also downsize the portions a bit for a great something-please-cool-me-off afternoon snack.
Whether you make your smoothies in the greatest infomercial product of all time or some silly blender, you should blend up this combination, because it’s delicious.
