So my husband is a crazy cyclist. Road biker, mountain biker, snow biker, bike shop owner. He rides crazy canyon climbs (like 4 in one day) and has done Lotoja (210 miles through mountain passes) numerous times, and is hoping to get into Leadville this year. Anyway, that's kind of a side note that leads me to my point. He gets to be part of the Blendtec cycling team and because of this and that and the other, we got a super schnazzy Blendtec blender!!! This is like the Ferrari of blenders.
Peach Strawberry Mango Smoothie
16 oz Dole Orange Peach Mango juice (from a can, in the freezer section of your store)
1 1/2 heaping cups of frozen strawberries
1 1/2 heaping cups of frozen peaches
1 handful of fresh spinach leaves (optional)
Dump it all in, hit the smoothie button, and you're done.
One of my favorite things about this blender is that it completely pulverizes the spinach. With my old blender, which was a good one, it left the spinach just big enough that my daughter could see something green in there and wouldn't drink it (despite being a pretty good vegetable eater otherwise). This Blendtec gets everything so finely blended that you can't tell there's any greens, so it's a great way to sneak in some extra veggies.
One of the other things I love is that I can use this to grind fresh wheat flour (freshly ground = more nutrients) and flax seeds (which I previously never used because I didn't have a grinder). You could also throw a spoonful of that in any of your smoothies! Pin It
