Blueberry Superfood Smoothie

April 8, 2014

I kind of freak out about the human species on a daily basis. It blows my mind that we can start off as a tiny avatar-looking creatures and grow into self-sufficient giant adults. Our ability to evolve is NUTS and this change is almost always a good thing. That’s why I’ve just gotta roll with it that I was changed from a smoothie-hater to a two-a-day drinker in 24 hours. Or Gina, Amanda and Alexis are performing some kind of smoothie voodoo on me from afar.

Blueberry Superfood Smoothie // thehealthymaven.comI’m getting down with the smoothie big time. I am 90% sure this has to do with my newest gadget, my Ninja Ultima Blender. For years I was using a magic bullet and quite literally drinking the cool-aide that it was the greatest invention. That was until C informed me that the black substance it was leaking was not normal and we should probably part ways. Cue Ninja Blender saving the day.

This bad boy has some serious power. I basically snap my fingers and the smoothie is done and I swear it has some sort of technology that makes the smoothie the perfect, creamy consistency. I’m a spoon-eating smoother (new word) so creamy is KEY. Plus we all know how I feel about cleaning so my Ninja is basically my new bff because I can easily pull it apart and throw it into the dish-washer with no problemooo! Oh did I mention it comes with 3 single serve cups?! So that whole “magic bullet, easy clean” argument doesn’t hold anymore.

Blueberry Superfood Smoothie // thehealthymaven.comI know what you’re thinking, Davs got a free blender and in return is writing a nice review. LIES. As someone who has always wanted a Vitamix, I was skeptical. But those dreams were crushed in the best way possible. The Ninja is incredible and a 1/4 of the price of a Vitamix. So take that (insert punching emoji).

Besides being a born-again blendster (i’m just killing it with these new words!), I’ve also discovered the world of smoothie combinations. Turns out you can venture beyond banana-strawberry! Avocado is the most brilliant addition to smoothies since the invention of the blender, you will NOT taste the spinach and coconut milk tastes like jesus juice. You can imagine what happens when you combine all of these with some bloobs. Prepare to have your mind blown.

    I tried the Ninja but I seriously think I must have been doing something wrong because it never blended things right for me….weird!
