I thought I'd show off a bit today and introduce you to my purple blender...
Ta daaaaaa!!! Isn't it cool? It's an Oster brand 14-speed 450-watt "Osterizer." I think all Oster blenders are "Osterizers..." but not all of them are purple! I got it for Christmas a few years ago, and it serves me very well. The highest, fastest, heaviest-dutiest speed is "ice crush." Boy, does it ever! It rips right through frozen fruit, ice, and lime ice cubes (some of my favorite things to crush!). Am I a little too attached to it? Probably. But who wouldn't be, when together as a team, we make the greatest soups, shakes, sauces, and of course, smoothies! Hmmm... it seems to like to make foods that start with "s."
In the blender jar, waiting to be whizzed around, are the following ingredients: one cup of frozen (organic) raspberries, one and a quarter cups of (organic) milk (cow, not soy), half a cup of (organic) raspberry frozen yogurt, and a drizzle of some absolutely fabulous local honey (probably not officially organic, but I bought it last fall at a local apple orchard, and it's the best honey I've ever had). Can you stand the organic-ness of it all? I barely can myself.
Let me tell you, this turned out to be one thick, sweet-tart, girly-girly pink shake:
It made a great supper on this not-too-hot but still humid and sticky summery evening. Protein, fiber, vitamins, antioxidants, calcium, and only about 300 calories... take that, Slim-Fast (and see ya, Whoopi!)!
