this is not a paid endorsement by magic bullet. but it might as well be.

the magic bullet entered my life back in 2007. yep, i just did a search through the archives of my blog, and lo and behold, here i am posing NOT AT ALL SUBTLY with a smoothie.

[sidenote: reading through my 2007 blog archives and looking at the (ahem) photos, is a bit embarrassing. but to put things in perspective, i was, at the time, figuring out how to be alone. and how to muster up enough mojo to get out of bed in the mornings. so if i had to entertain myself with photos of my latest smoothie creation, well that's what i had to do. if you haven't ever stooped to those lowest lows, then lucky you.]

anyway, it’s been a number of years since i first extolled the virtues of this contraption, and the truth is i’d forgotten that i had it. that’s what happens when you move five times and the box labeled ‘art supplies’ actually contains various kitchen aides and utensils. recently however, i’ve rediscovered my love for blended up frozen fruit thanks to the nearby nature-mart. but i have also realized i don’t want/need to pay $6.50 for a smoothie, when i can bust out the magical magic bullet and whip up a delicious treat for much less. AND i can get all experimental each time and add other things to the frozen fruit:

whole yogurt? mmm.

ground flaxseeed? sure, why not. i need the ‘omegas’. whatever the ‘omegas’ are.

whole raw almonds? i’m pushing the bullet to its limits, but it grinds them up like a champ.

a dash of vanilla essence and pure maple syrup to sweeten? heck yes, way to turn my smoothie into dessert.

other awesome smoothie ingredients include:

cinnamon
dates
honey
coconut
peanut butter
avocado (i know it sounds strange, but it’s a good base for citrus smoothies)

if you have any la bamba smoothie recipes / ingredients to try, please let me know.

    Yum. I need to get my own Magic Bullet. My college boyfriend had one (his very-elderly grandmother gave it to him, which I found to be awesome) and we’d use it all the time. My particular favorite use was blending up raspberries and limeaid to make, well.. I guess that would be raspberry limeaid.

    I understand your love. Although I’ve never actually taken photos with my magic bullet, I spend about seven seconds of quality time with it nearly every morning :)

    Right now I’m thinking…blueberry mango. Cheers!

    dairy is not my friend, so I like to replace milk with almond milk. it’s yummy. :) agave nectar is great, if you haven’t tried it before! and i don’t eat much meat so a scoop or two of protein powder is how i get more protein in my diet. the vanilla flavor tends to go well with any fruit.

    i have been toying with the idea of purchasing the magic bullet for some time. friends have been raving. alrighty, i think i’m caving. when i write my first magic bullet post, i’m dedicating it to you!

    I like to freeze my fruit ahead of time to give it a sorbet-esque texture. I don’t have a magic bullet, but I find that blending fresh berries for a juice, rather than adding one. Organic peanut butter is my go-to protein, especially with a few frozen bananas and soy milk, melted chocolate chips if I want desert!
