My Fancy New Blender

I got a new Blendtec Total Blender for my birthday. I had been coveting a new blender like this one or the Vita-Mix for a few years. No, it's not my birthday yet (this week though...gulp...), but since my spouse has yet ANOTHER business trip this week, I decided to break it out early.

I made a green smoothie with fresh spinach, banana, juice, peanut butter, and frozen berries. It was delicious. My spouse has asked for some tomorrow, but he really wants me to leave out the peanut butter. So I probably will. Tomorrow will include fresh peaches.

Unlike the regular blender, the spinach is ground up so small that you can't even see it. Can't taste it. Can kinda smell it.

I went on a smoothie kick for a while last year when my brother insisted that I needed to drink protein smoothies daily. I went along with him since they were an excuse to mix ice cream and strawberries together. Yours are definitely much healthier, however. I would so not leave out the PB in a smoothie - there's never too much of that in my life!

I know! I love the creaminess that the PB adds...just don't understand why the hubby doesn't like it...
