My Favorite Smoothie Cup

There’s nothing worse than making an ice cold, perfectly blended smoothie, pouring it into a coup and finding it melted and slightly warm when you finally get around to drinking it.

With our busy lifestyles storing the smoothie in the fridge isn’t always an option. When you’re on the go – particularly in the hot summer months – it doesn’t take long for your smoothie or frozen drinks to melt in a hot car.

My Favorite Smoothie Cup

The stainless steel smoothie cup comes to the rescue the double layer provides a lot of insulation that will keep your frozen drinks ice cold and frozen for hours. If you’re more of a coffee or tea drinker, use the cup to keep your favorite hot beverage piping hot for hours to come.

The cup is made from stainless steel with a small amount of BPA free plastic in the lid. Not only does this result in a stylish cup that won’t cause you any health problems down the road, it’s also easy to clean and incredibly effective when it comes to keeping your cold drinks cold and your hot drinks hot.

Did I mention that this is a travel mug / cup that is easy to carry around and will fit in all your traditional cup holders? Fix your drink, add a straw,  and hit the road, or take it to the gym.

Carrying your favorite beverage around with you has never been this easy.

Best of all because of the good insulation, you don’t have to worry about condensation on the outside of the cup. No more water stains anytime you sit your cup down if you live in a hot and humid climate.

This will quickly become your favorite cup to take around with you as you head to work, drive the kids around, or do errands. Have a large family, like me, add some Washi-tape or drink bands so you can keep track of whose is whose.

This smoothie cup is getting 5 star reviews on Amazon too! Check them out here. 

What’s a NutriBullet?

Smoothies are a great way to add more fruits and veggies to your diet. But sometimes just getting out your big blender, setting it up, using it for one little smoothie and then cleaning it all up after you’re done is enough work to make you not want to do it.

Thankfully there’s an easy solution with individual blender cups like the NutriBullet. You blend up your smoothie right in the cup, rinse of the blender and take your smoothie with you. The cup can go in the dishwasher too, making clean-up a snap.

The NutriBullet

The NutriBullet is a great addition to your kitchen whether you’re single, or preparing healthy meals for a large family. It allows you to blend up smoothies one at a time, customizing them for each person. This is great when you have picky eaters or people who are allergic to certain foods and ingredients. Depending on the severity of the allergy, be sure to both wash the blades and cup well between smoothies, or consider getting more than one Nutribullet.

Of course the NutriBullet isn’t just great for smoothies. Whip up a batch of homemade salsa or hummus for healthy snacking. Or fix a quick lunch by blending leftovers and hot broth into a delicious soup.

Once you start using the NutriBullet, it will be hard to imagine how you ever got along without it. Yes, it’s that convenient and easy to use. Give it a try.

Saves time cutting up, just wash and throw in fruits and all pulverized in seconds, quick time smoothies ready…Great value for money. – Leighton G. Mcintyre

Oster My Blend

Let’s start with the obvious. When it comes to looks, the Oster My Blend wins big points for style. It’s the best looking blender that you won’t mind keeping out on the counter. Because of the sleek design it won’t take much space on your counter.

Oster: the Perfect Personal Blender

It blends everything you throw at it really well including ice, which can be a bit of a challenge when it comes to personal blenders on the market. It won’t take you long to whip up your favourite smoothie in the morning. Since you’re bending right in a sports bottle, you just remove the blades, sew on your sports bottle top and you’re good to go.

Sip your smoothie, rinse the bottle and then use it to make sure you drink plenty of water the rest of the day. Perfect for busy professionals who know how important it is to live a healthy lifestyle and stay hydrated.

Everyone Needs Their Own Blend?

No problem! Additional bottles are very reasonably priced and they come in several fun colors. Get a different one for each member of your family and everyone can blend their favourite breakfast smoothie and then use the water bottle throughout the day. Perfect for school or if you’re hitting the gym later in the day.

The containers are BPA free, and easy to use and clean. There’s no reason that this won’t be something you’ll use every single day. Blend your favorite fruits and veggies into delicious smoothies and improve your diet.

My favorite thing? Amazon has the Oster My Blend bottles in different colors, so my color-coded large-family can stay organized AND healthy!

Ninja Professional Blender

There are blenders and then there are professional blenders that blend up anything you throw at them. If you’re in the market for a strong blender that will turn even tough broccoli into smooth and creamy broccoli and cheese soup, or perfectly blend even kale into your green smoothies, this is the type of blender you want to get.

Ninja Power in Blending

Yes, it takes up some space on your kitchen counter top but once you start to use, you won’t be able to stop using it every single day. Blend up smoothie or iced coffees or breakfast, fix yourself a green smoothie or some gazpacho for lunch, and make delicious homemade soup blended to perfection in your professional blender.

Professional Quality

The 1000 watt engine will blend everything well including ice and you have plenty of room for all your drinks, soups and purees in the 72 ounce blender jar.

A quality blender like this makes it easy and more importantly fun to eat healthy. It blends up smoothies in seconds, and will even turn the largest ice cubes into snow. Make a batch of salsa, or whip up some frozen drinks.

Ninja Easy to Clean

This is a kitchen appliance you’ll use on a daily basis. Because of that it’s important to note that all parts are BPA free. If you end up using it as much as I expect you will, that’s important for your health and that of your family.

As far as convenience goes, let me tell you that the blender is easy to clean and all parts are dishwasher safe. Blend, pour, rinse, and put it in the dishwasher. With that much ease and convenience there’s no reason to not use it every single day.

Why I like the Ninja Master Prep Food Processor

You’ve got to love a small kitchen appliance that can take care of multiple jobs. If you find yourself making smoothies on a daily basis, but also use your food processor quite a bit, this is the appliance for you. That’s particularly true if you use your Ninja Master Prep food processor for smaller jobs like shredding and chopping veggies, making salsas and the likes.

Ninja Master Prep Food Processor

I love this particular food processor / blender because it’s easy to use and does a wide variety of jobs. While it may not be quite as powerful as a Vitamix or the Ninja Professional blender, it does a great job at everything you’ll usually blend.

Great for Food or Smoothies

It’s great for smoothies and soups, or whip up a batch of homemade baby food. And the small food processor option is great for everyday chopping and processing. You can grate some carrots for your salad and then turn around and make a smoothie or slushy.

Masterful Design

The design of this processor is brilliant. I love the non-slip grip and bottom. There’s nothing worse than having a big pitcher of sticky smoothie tip over and pour across the kitchen counter or table. The non-slip options will help prevent that. Speaking of the pitcher, it’s easy to use and pour from.

You can even prep your smoothies, slushies, or margaritas ahead of time, pop one of the included lids on the pitcher and store it in the fridge. It’s hard to beat this handy multi-purpose gadget for the price. It even has it’s own smoothie recipe book!

And Amazon customers love it too! It’s a best seller!

Vitamix Blender Review

If you want a blender that lasts for years and blends anything just right, there’s no better appliance to choose than a Vitamix Blender. Yes, it’s a little on the expensive side when it comes to small kitchen appliances, but it is worth every single penny.

This isn’t the type of blender you buy to make the occasional frozen drink or batch of salsa. This is the type of blender you buy that stays on your counter and is used on a daily basis.

The Vitamix Blender

If you’re into smoothies and green smoothies, this is the type of blender is the perfect choice for you. No matter how many batches of frozen fruit or ice you throw at it, you end up with a perfectly smooth smoothie every single time. I love that fact that it even processes kale leaves that can be hard to blend with their tough leaves.

Meant for Every-Day Use

Vitamix blenders are built to be used every single day and last. Of course they aren’t just used to blend up your daily batch of smoothies. Use them to blend up homemade soups, make slushies, milkshakes, or homemade salsa. With an easy to use and easy to clean blender like this, you’ll be whipping up blended and chopped foods on a daily basis.

What a great tool to encourage you to use plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and make them part of your daily meals.

If you’re looking for a quality blender that will work no matter what and lasts for a long, long time, even with daily use, take a look at the Vitamix blender. It’s my favorite small kitchen appliance.

oh mama. I love it. It’s quiet, it’s powerful, it can pretty much do ANYTHING. I use it daily for smoothies (blends ice and fruit with no effort!), and my bulletproof coffee. I’ve made salsa in it, batter for cupcakes and muffins, soup,almond butter, salad dressing. There is nothing it can’t do it seems! I’m so happy I finally have a dependable blender. It also looks great on my counter! I have the white, low profile. Amazing. Worth the investment. Highly recommend!! Hope this review helps!!! – M. Hart
