As a girl who loves breakfast, I couldn't help but fall in love with a man who had his own special morning beverage. And when I was pregnant, it was the perfect second breakfast (just after breakfast and before elevensies, of course).
Pour in cups (2-4, depending on serving size).
Feel better about the day ahead.
We make one most every weekday at our house and divide it up between two stadium cups and two smaller cups with straw lids. We've tweaked the details a bit along the way, but the substance is still the same as it was 11 years ago. The family that smoothies together stays together, right? And there's no tastier way to stay regular and healthy, trust me.
When we got married nearly 10 years ago, we got a blender as a wedding gift. It survived about a year or two of smoothies. We replaced it with another regular blender that lasted two more years.
Then we bought the Waring Commercial Bar Blender. [Insert dramatic, angelic music here.]
After six faithful years and somewhere in the ballpark of 1,500 double smoothie spins, our bar blender finally quit last week. Full of unblended smoothie ingredients, of course, but I really couldn't complain after all those years [see photo].
So what did we do? Promptly went online and ordered a new one just like it, but with a chrome base (you know, to match our soon-to-be-snazzy new kitchen).
Thanks, Waring, for keeping us in healthy, tasty breakfasts for another six years.
Emmet's Triple Delicious Fruit Smoothies
- Put the following ingredients in your Waring blender:
- 2 peeled bananas
- 1 6-oz. container of light yogurt (fruit or vanilla flavors)
- 1 6-oz. container of water
- 1 6-oz. container of light vanilla soy milk
- 2 handfuls of frozen strawberries (I use about 10 of the Costco ones)
- handful of frozen mixed berries (I use Costco's raspberry, blueberry, marionberry mix)
Note: We paid for our new blender -- no promise of compensation for this post. But Waring, if you're reading, I'm happy to be your next paid spokeperson for smoothie production.
