Happy Monday! Today I am bringing you my most recent YouTube video, “Making a Smoothie with a Low-Powered Blender”.
To be honest, I am not sure if “low-powered” is the most correct terminology. Basically, this video is for anyone using a single-serve blender, a blender that costs less than $50, or for anyone who has problems with chunky smoothies (ew).
Vitamixs and Blendtecs are amazing in that you basically can just throw in all your ingredients, hit the power switch, and within seconds have a creamy and delicious smoothie.
I know because I have a deeply missed Vitamix at home. You see, I have been traveling in Texas and packing my blender was just not an option. So what’s a smoothie-loving girl to do??
I headed to Target and picked up a $15, single-serve blender. Smoothies are a staple breakfast for me. They are one sure fire way I can get in a serving of greens and a couple servings of fruit before my day really gets going.
This little blender has been amazing for the price!
However, there was definitely a technique to using this blender and still getting a smooth smoothie that took me a couple tries to perfect.
You see, this little blender is not quite as high performance/high power as a Vitamix. I mean what do you expect for $400 less?
But, this technique should not really add that much more time to your smoothie routine. I will show you how in the video below which is less than 5 minutes long!
So for all of you not ready to drop the hefty price tag for a fancy blender (who could blame you?!), but still want a palatable smoothie, this video should help!
