Magic Bullet: Tools of the Trade
The thing I like about the Magic Bullet is that you make individual smoothies. You actually screw the blender piece directly onto the cup. When you are done, the colored rings are screwed on to make the edge of the cup smooth. If you have kids old enough to make their own smoothie, this is a great way to let them do it. Everyone can make their own just the way they want it. I also like the fact that the cups go straight into the dishwasher and there is no big blender bowl to clean up.
Smoothies are a great way to get fruit and vegetables into your kids. There are lots of smoothie recipes out there, but really all you need to do is put in fruit and/or veggies, liquid, and mix it up. I have also added things like:
- flax seed
- almond meal
- ice cream
- milk substitute
If you own a Magic Bullet or something similar, I would love to hear how you use it. Do you use it for things other than smoothies? What are your favorite smoothie ingredients?

I'm going to have to try adding almond meal and flax seeds to my smoothies. That sound great! I like to sneak in some leafy greens like spinach or kale. Seriously, can't taste it when you've got enough of the good stuff like fruit in there!
I have a Vita-Mix, which I love (except for having to clean out that big pitcher).
Mostly I use mine for smoothies, lemonades and soups. Also works pretty well for frozen drinks like daiquiris. I will blend up 1/2-2/3 of most of my soup recipes to add texture/thickness (and to hide all those veggies from my hubby!).
I have also used it to make pancake batter and muffin batter, which works pretty great for the recipes I've tried.
So fun! Love my blender. But definitely still keeping the Magic Bullet on my wish list for someday when I have money to burn :)
Favorite ingredients? Berries! Fresh blueberries, raspberries and if I get ambitious, huckleberries!
My kids like avacado smoothy. Strange, I know but with bananna I guess it's pretty good.
Linda, I drove past Cataldo Mission and Kellogg the other day and thought of you. :)
