Lately as the weather has been heating up, I’ve been obsessed with making smoothies for breakfast – and they’ve been tasting better than ever!
What’s my secret?
One of the key elements to a good smoothie is a top quality blender! So many of you ask me about which blender I use, so today I’m sharing all the details!
The blender I’m loving right now is KitchenAid’s new K400 blender! It’s the most powerful blender I’ve ever used – it can handle tough ingredients like my go-to nuts and dates which I love mixing into my smoothies for a hit of sweetness and healthy fats! The K400 has the power and ability to smoothly blend any ingredients you want from nuts, seeds, dried or frozen fruit This makes it perfect for a variety of recipes, from smoothies to muffins, or even soups! I feel safe adding ingredients into the blender that I normally wouldn’t use, and I highly recommend investing in this blender!
Not to mention, the dried rose colour I chose looks so stunning in my kitchen – I’m all about the aesthetic of my kitchen appliances! There are eight gorgeous shades to choose from, so there’s an option for everyone!
So now, I want to share my go-to quick, easy breakfast smoothie with you that I’ve been making on repeat with my KitchenAid K400 – the JSHealth Power Protein Smoothie!
This smoothie is high in protein, fibre and good fats to support good energy, weight balance and reduce sugar cravings. It will keep you full and satiated through the morning!
