Mr. Food: Smoothies

Nothing says summer more than sipping on a thick, frosty fruit smoothie, so how can we have that smoothie shop taste at home? Well, you know, smoothie makers in all sizes and colors are all the rage right now, but to get the smoothest smoothies just like the pros make, we’ll need a smoothie maker with a powerful motor and extra sharp blades to crush our fruits and ice.

Wow! That’s powerful! That’s just one of the differences from a traditional blender and they all have built-in stir sticks so we don’t have to open the top and scrape down the sides like we do with a regular blender.

I don’t know about you, but that’s the part where I always make a mess! And now’s the perfect time to get back to basics and take advantage of sales on nature’s summer bounty.
I mean, imagine a smoothie with strawberries, bananas, orange juice and creamy yogurt to jump-start our day or as an energizing lunch! How about reaping apple’s cholesterol-lowering benefits with this green apple smoothie? And the kids will always devour their favorite fruits mixed with vanilla ice cream.

It's like a “can’t-wait-for” after-school snack! We can even make fancy frozen coffee drinks – the sky’s the limit! And when we’re ready, see how easy it is to serve with the built-in dispenser! So maybe pick up a smoothie maker and get ready to indulge in the cooling, smooth "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!®"
