So recently I made an exciting purchase. I finally got a blendtec fancy blender. I’ve been watching craigslist for years to try and find a deal and finally last week one came up. The lady selling it had only had it for a year but said she never really used it and so she gave me a deal. I got about a $450 blender for $285. It’s still a lot of money but well worth it.
But as I started to use my blender I came up with a problem because I couldn’t drink an entire blender of smoothie without going crazy on the calories. However, I didn’t want to throw away half a pitcher of smoothie. (Since I live alone I must solely consume all of the food I make unless I have company.)
Hmmmm…what’s a girl to do?
Here’s my solution-
Take leftover smoothie and put it in silicon ice cube trays
Takes longer than regular ice to get solid enough.Once it is frozen, press cube out of silicon and put into ziploc or other freezer container.
Then they are perfect for a quick treat or to make a new smoothie with a little bit of orange juice or coconut water added.
Ah, best idea ever!
