Oh wait, starting in June I committed to drinking a smoothie every day. Guess I'd better start my blender research. Does Oster still make blenders? Up until a few years ago, my mom had the bestest Oster. It was older than me. We had a million different jars for it. Find me an Oster, I will give you a prize. Ready? Go!
So while we're all doing a fun research project, I though I'd share with you one of my new favorite smoothie recipes. It's so good. I told Ammon it was really yucky, in hopes he wouldn't want as much, and would leave it for me. Do you think he listened?
What you need:
One small pineapple, skin, top, and core removed (you could use a can of pineapple instead I guess)
8 oz water
2 servings vanilla protein powder
One cup frozen strawberries
What you do:
1) Put protein powder, water and pineapple in blender. Blend until all of the pineapple is broken down nicely.
2) Add banana and frozen strawberries. Blend again for 2-3 minutes. This makes the texture amazing. Don't shortchange your blending time.
3) Pour into your favorite glasses and enjoy. This makes 2 HUGE smoothies, so you will either need to be able to consume it all at once, or cut down on the recipe.
This is the face Ammon made when I told him I was giving myself more than I was giving him:
