Oh my goodness. For someone who hates to have to learn new things (that would be me)…. what have I done???
<sigh> Decided I seriously need to improve my eating habits (have I mentioned how much I HATE to cook?) and somehow got the idea that I could pack a lot of nutrients into a smoothie. Well, yes you can – but first you have to have something to make the smoothie with – then you have to have a gazillion ingredients that do not grace my kitchen cupboards.
Once upon a time I had a blender (it died many years ago) and I’m certain it would not have been sufficient for today’s recipes. Found some recommendations online and almost had a coronary when I saw the prices. Who knew a blender could cost hundreds of dollars??
So, started looking for ideas – granddaughter was here visiting after Christmas and she works part time in a coffee shop that makes smoothies, so she had recommendations.
The new “Ninja” arrived on Monday and while I had read all the info/reviews, etc, just unpacking this thing was intimidating to this old lady. So, I’ve read every word of the booklets that came with it, duly washed everything, tried diligently to find a spot in my small kitchen (have not achieved success on that score) and made a long shopping list. What I haven’t done is make a smoothie! 😢
I seriously think this thing is smarter than I am. 😱
