Guys, I’ve been using my blender like a chump the past few months. I’d fill my blender maybe a quarter of the way with smoothie ingredients, and as I’d pulse, all the liquid would splatter all over the inside and take forever to blend the smoothie. Then I’d pour it into a tall glass and would have to wash both the glass AND the clunky blender container! When I was on vacation recently my cousin introduced a way to make a smoothie that just Blew. My. Mind.
A regular sized Mason jar top will fit the bottom of most blenders! Just pour all your ingredients into the jar, screw on the lid, attach to the blender, and watch the magic happen! Everything pulses in a smaller area and takes only seconds to finish! And all you have to wash are the jar and the blender bottom. I’ve been making smoothies every day since I learned this! In addition to this tip, I’ve included a recipe for my new favorite smoothie! All you need is:
1 cup almond milk (or regular milk)
2 tablespoons all natural peanut butter
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 frozen banana, chopped
Simply add all the ingredients into your mason jar and attach to your blender until the chocolate-y, peanut buttery goodness is fully blended! This smoothie is delicious, healthy, and keeps me full! It’s the perfect breakfast.
(Note: I’ve been notified that we should all be careful doing this, as it wasn’t technically meant to be used with a blender! Just use caution to make sure the glass doesn’t break.)
