If you follow along on my Instagram page, you know that I am ADDICTED to smoothies. I always make one for breakfast after my workout in the morning… doesn’t matter how cold it is outside! I usually rotate the same few smoothie recipes, but this fall I wanted to try my hand at a new recipe to get in the Thanksgiving spirit!
One of the most commonly asked questions I get on my page is about what type of blender I use for my smoothies. I know that there are a TON of different blenders out there, some are realllly expensive and others are very cheap. It’s hard to know which one to purchase, mostly because you want to make sure that it works! I definitely had my eye on one of the more expensive (~$500) blenders for awhile, but I started to wonder what it would actually give me value-wise that a less expensive one wouldn’t. I was given the opportunity try out and partner with the Oster® Texture Select Blender (from Walmart), and I am obsessed. It creates smoothies with the best texture and is super easy to use (& clean)! I also LOVE the fact that it comes with a Blend-N-Go Cup, which I can take to class with me on days when I don’t have time to make a pretty smoothie bowl!
Recipe Details (serves 1):
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- 1/4 cup of vanilla almond milk
- 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice!
- Banana Slices
- Peanut Butter
This smoothie bowl turned out SO thick… almost like a pumpkin spice ice cream! I give all the credit to the Oster® Texture Select Blender, its smoothie setting was so efficient that I only needed to use 1/4 cup of liquid! Let me know if you try out this smoothie recipe/blender out and let me know what you think. You can find the Oster® Texture Select Blender at Walmart!
