It finally arrived!
I don't think I've announced this on the blog yet, but I was lucky enough to win a Bullet To Go. I simply just commented on a recent smoothie I've been enjoying and was selected as one of the winners. This was a HUGE prize. Thanks to Monica at Run Eat Repeat for hosting such an awesome giveaway!
I've actually been in the market for a new blender. I really want the queen of them all, the Vitamix but that will have to wait! I was so excited to finally receive my bullet. I could not believe how many parts came with the bullet. You can do anything in the bullet besides making smoothies. It good for salsa, grinding nuts or coffee, and even margaritas (hello!). It came with a nifty little recipe book, and really opened up what you can do with the Bullet To Go. Bring it to a campsite, on the beach, hotel room etc. I thought that was pretty cool. First thing first, I had to charge this bad boy up.
Once charged I couldn't wait to try it out. I choose a smoothie out of the book called Refreshingly Groovy Fruit Smoothie to try first. It was definitely groovy and oh so delicious! I did use almond milk in in place of cow's milk, and only 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder.
Next smoothie I made was a recipe of my own. I find smoothies are easy to get in extra greens into your diet. You can't taste them either which is a huge plus in my book. I wanted to get creative with my smoothie and decided I'd call it:
Green Cocoa Bana-Berry Shake By Fallon
1/2 cup almond milk
Handful ice cubes
1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
1 scoop of Green Superfood
1/2 cup strawberries
1/2 a frozen banana
1 tsp raw cocoa nubs
Add ingredients added in order to blender and blend till smooth and creamy!
