Is this week going slowly for anyone else? My cough has finally subsided from the antibiotics I am taking and it makes it much easier to get through my teaching day.
Rob and I are just loving watching Zoey walk everywhere. Now that she can move around on her own two feet, she is just so happy to explore her surroundings from a new height. Since our house has a circular floor plan, Zoey loves to walk laps around and around. We end up just following behind her while she grins from ear to ear!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know my absolute love of my morning smoothie. Since I am not a huge breakfast person, a smoothie is an easy way for me to get in all those important nutrients for my morning meal without making me feel overly full.
Since my smoothie addiction would not be possible without our Blendtec, I wanted to share a few other recipe ideas from around the web that involve this high powered blender.
Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream from 4 Hour Body Girl – Rob and I made this ice cream with our Blendtec when we first got it a few years ago. We loved that the green coloring was made with spinach! This is a good, sneaky way to fit more vegetables into your day and I promise you cannot taste the spinach.
Easy 5 Ingredient Tomato Basil Blender Soup from Recipe Diaries – This was another of our our first experiences with our Blendtec. The blender actual has the power to heat things as it blends, which saved a bit of time. With fall quickly approaching here in Denver, this tomato basil soup is definitely going to make more appearances. Put it with a side of grilled cheese, and I am a happy camper.
Easy Basil Pesto Recipe from The Frugal Girls – I have dabbled in homemade pesto before, but have never used our blender for it. This recipe looks so easy and delicious! When I have bought pesto, I freeze it into cubes using silicone ice cube trays, so I would do the same with this. Then, you have perfect portions for pastas and sandwiches!
Perfect Pie Crust In A Blender from Happy Food Healthy Life – Apple pie anyone? If time is tight, I would probably just stick with the store bought crust, but this pie crust sounds super simple to make and would probably up my apple pie game. I also love the idea of mini apple pies, so those might make an appearance this fall as well.
Easy Blender Peanut Butter from Amy’s Healthy Baking – While we do not eat a ton of peanut butter around here (I am not a huge fan), using the Blendtec to make a small batch for what we need is not only simple, but would save us some money on the jars of peanut butter we never get through.
Easy Cauliflower Mash Recipe from Kitchen of Eatin’ – A few weeks ago on my Instagram story, I shared that I was trying out cauliflower rice for the first time. I am a total convert! With cauliflower being so inexpensive, and versatile, I am looking for all kinds of ways to use it (same with quinoa). Now to see if I can get Rob to be willing to try this in place of potatoes…
Creamy Avocado Cilantro Lime Dressing from Gimme Delicious – I do not know about your area right now, but avocados around here are super pricey. Once the price comes down, this avocado cilantro lime dressing is going to be created in our blender. It is the perfect way to incorporate avocados into my lunch salads!
Homemade Apple Butter from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom – Can you tell I have fall on the brain? With apple season about to be spreading its delicious joy, I am going to have to try my hand at this apple butter. It is sure to be a Rob and Zoey crowd pleaser and I guarantee we will find ourselves spreading it on everything we possibly can.
