Smoothies (and my new Ninja blender)

Standard

As a mom I never buy very expensive stuff for myself, I only spend on my kids (okkkk and on cookbooks, hahahaha but I mostly buy them on sale on amazon, haha!), but for once I bought myself a brand new Ninja Blender! I was thinking about it for a while and I finally did the move! The day I bought it, it was on sale for 200$CA+Tx..instead of 300$CA+tx! Yeah! 😀 As always I loooooove bargains!

After thinking about it, it’s not really for me after all, but for my whole family, especially my husband that became a super smoothie fan since I’m making him some with my blender. Aww that’s good, so I can stop feeling guilty as Hell for spending a lot of money on myself! I got rid (hey not in the garbage I gave them to people!) of my old friends (my blender, my food processor and my juicer) to only use my Ninja now.

The first time I used it I was impressed, it’s not a joke when they say it’s a beast! It’s soooooo powerful!!! You have a perfect smoothie in 20 seconds!!!! Like i said, my husband is now a big addict, he wants one every day (and sometimes more than one) but I’m super happy with that because usually he don’t eat a lot of fruits and veggies (I mean just like that, not in a dish). He’s also loosing weight for the past two months so it help him stay on the right track.

Here’s some example of smoothies I made.. each day I do one different, because I use whatever I want or have at the moment… but we have a favorite combination (my husband and I) it’s pineapple and pink grapefruit, then I add other fruits (and ice!! to have a great texture and to have a cold smoothie). It’s two awesome fruits together because they help your body to loose weight by helping your digestive system. I never been a grapefruit fan (an orange fan!) but in smoothies it’s very good. We also love to add an avocado! What a cool way to eat healthy fats!

Ninja did something good.. they made us smoothies addicts! HAHA!

It’s good for my man, for my kids, and for me (but I was always eating fruits and veggies like crazy) who is breastfeeding my 2 1/2 months old son, so many vitamins in a glass without losing the pulp like in a juicer. When it’s good for my family, I’m happy because my family is what I love the most in the world! they are my everything!!! 🙂
