Smoothie Blenders - Make a Healthy Drink With the Best Blender
You can't make a smoothie without a blender or a food processor. Well, perhaps you can but it won't be easy. And because convenience and ease is one of the smoothie's selling points, you'll have to invest in a good blender if you want to enjoy a healthy smoothie. Invite you to: More information about best blenders review website Tips for Choosing a Smoothie Blender A blender is necessary to break up and blend the fruits and other ingredients in a smoothie. This is something that a juicer cannot do. A juicer will allow you to get only the fruit or vegetable juice, leaving behind the fiber. You won't be able to incorporate the ice, milk, yogurt, protein powder and other smoothie ingredients. If you are going to purchase a smoothie blender, think about the fruits and other ingredients that will go into your drink. Many fruits are small and soft and they can be easily blended. Some fruits are harder, like apples and pears. Vegetables can also be tough on a blender. You must have an idea about what fruits and vegetables you will be using so that you can choose a suitable blender. If you want to add ice cubes, make sure your smoothie blender can handle it. Your blender must be powerful enough to process the fruits and vegetables for your smoothies. If it's not strong enough, you may get large chunks of fruits instead of a creamy smoothie. See more here: https://www.nairaland.com/4592387/almost-every-kitchen-minumum-one#68979766 Another thing to consider is the capacity of your blender. If you will be making large batches of healthy smoothies, you'll need a blender with a large flask. The blender should be easy to clean. You should be able to take out the blades so that you can clean the equipment properly. Otherwise, you'll have smoothie residues left in the blender. Make sure the blender is safe to use. It should come with a warranty. You can purchase a good blender online or at your local appliance store. What are the Best Smoothie Blenders? There are many brands and models of blenders out there that you can use to make a healthy smoothie. Choosing the best one is a matter of personal preference. You also have to think about your budget. A good quality, economical blender such as an Oster blender is suitable if you are just starting out. If you want to spring for a professional-grade blender, you may want to consider a VitaMix or BlendTec blender. These two are powerful blenders and they can even crush ice cubes. Keep in mind that professional blenders are expensive so you may want to give it some thought before deciding on the best smoothie blender for your needs.

Healthy Strawberry Chia Watermelon Smoothie
Cold and refreshing, sweet and tart, with a twist of lime for freshness โ€“ this vegan, gluten-free smoothie is a perfect (and healthy!) summer treat, complete with chia seeds, which I probably don't need to tell you are a nutritional GOLD MINE. Chia seeds are packed with fiber and antioxidants. They're a good source of protein, and gram for gram, have more Omega-3 fatty acids than salmon. It's no coincidence that "chia" means "strength" โ€“ ancient Mayans and Aztecs prized this tiny seed for its sustainable energy. Today, health nuts everywhere rejoice in the chia's ability to pack so much good stuff into so few calories! (Source) This delicious, refreshing smoothies could not be easier to make. Minimalist Baker has whipped up another incredible recipe for us; check out their site for a lot of other wonderful treats that take one bowl, less than 10 ingredients, or 30 minutes (or less!) to prepare. In the meantime, pour yourself a big glass of this smoothie, sprinkle on some chia seeds, and feel your cares float away on the summer breeze. Strawberry Chia Watermelon Smoothie Recipe by Minimalist Baker Serves 2 Ingredients 1 1/2 cups (240 g) fresh watermelon, cubed (black seeds removed) 1 cup (120 g) frozen strawberries 1/2 ripe banana (50 g), previously peeled, chopped and frozen 1/2 - 3/4 cup (120-180 ml) unsweetened plain almond milk 1 lime, juiced (~30 ml) 1 Tbsp chia or hemp seeds (optional) Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth, adding more almond milk to thin, or more frozen strawberries or ice to thicken. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more lime for acidity, banana for sweetness, or watermelon for a more intense watermelon flavor. Top with additional chia seeds to mock watermelon seeds! Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. I can't wait to give this a try โ€“ let me know how yours come out! :)

Homemade Pop-Tarts? Oh Hells Yeah!
I never want to eat a store bought Pop-Tart again. Not after looking at this recipe, which uses real, flaky butter pastry (instead of crumbly cardboard dough) and your favorite fruit preserves (instead of sugar mixed with red dye 40). The homemade frosting and cheerful rainbow sprinkles are the icing on the cake! Photo and recipe credit go to Jaclyn over at Cooking Classy, an awesome cooking and baking blog that you need to check out! For now, here's the recipe for your new favorite breakfast (or anytime) treat. Homemade Pop-Tarts Prep Time: 20 mins. Chill Time: 3 hours. Cook Time: 30 mins. Difficulty: Medium Makes 8 pop-tarts What You'll Need For the pastry: 2 cups + 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling 1 tsp salt 1 tsp granulated sugar 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and diced into 1/2-inch cubes 4 - 5 Tbsp ice water 3/4 cup strawberry preserves, divided (or other preserve of choice) For the icing: 1 cup powdered sugar 2 Tbsp half and half, plus more as needed 1/4 tsp vanilla extract What To Do 1. Make the pastry dough: Pulse together flour, salt and granulated sugar in a food processor. Add butter and continue to pulse until the butter is broken up, and the mixture has a mealy texture. Add 4 tablespoons of water and pulse a few times until it comes together into dough; if it fails to come together, add another tablespoon of water and pulse again. 2. On a clean surface, divide dough into two portions. Shape each into a 5-inch dish, cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the fridge for 1 hour. Meanwhile, line two rimmed cookie sheets with parchment paper. 3. Remove one disk from the fridge; leave the other one to chill. Roll out the dough disk into a rectangle measuring approximately 13 inches by 11 inches. If edges crack, just stick them back together and keep rolling. Trim edges just so, so you have a 12"x10" perfect rectangle. Cut this into 8 5"x3" rectangles. 4. Arrange 4 rectangles evenly spaced on the parchment-lined cookie sheet; spread 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of jam evenly down the center of each rectangle. Seal edges with fingertips, then reseal with a fork. Use a tooth pick to poke the top of each tart 4 times. Let chill in the freezer for at least 2 hours, or up to one week. 5. Repeat process with second disk of dough. 6. Preheat oven to 375ยฐF. With one rack in the upper third of the oven and one in the bottom third, bake frozen tarts until golden, rotating racks halfway through baking. It will take about 25-30 minutes in all. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for several minutes, then transfer to wire rack. 7. Make the icing: Whisk together all ingredients, then add additional half and half a 1/2 teaspoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Spread over cooled pop-tarts, then dust with rainbow sprinkles. Allow to set at room temperature. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy! A little bit of a process, but totally worth it, don't you think? I can't wait to try these sweet treats in my own kitchen! :D
11 Pancakes You MUST Try Before You Die
OH GOD YES. Looking at these pictures... makes me feel things. In the part of my brain that I'm pretty sure is usually reserved for hot guys with abs. Yeah, I'm pretty sure my attraction to these pancakes is inappropriate. But just look at them, people. Have you ever seen anything more beautiful? A life without these pancakes... might not be worth living. (JOKE ALERT. LIFE WITHOUT PANCAKES IS JUST FINE PLEASE DON'T TAKE THIS THE WRONG WAY AAHHHHHH) Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes First up is this mind-blowing creation from Spicy Southern Kitchen. Created especially for her daughter's birthday, these peanut butter-infused pancakes have mini peanut butter cups in the batter, and are topped with chocolate sauce and peanut butter whipped cream. There's no way you could feel sad while eating these (unless you have a severe peanut allergy). Scroll to see additional images! Double Stuffed Oreo Pancakes While we're visiting the Spicy Southern Kitchen, it would be remiss not to include the pancakes she created for her daughter's previous birthday. That's right: Double Stuffed Oreo pancakes!! Rich, chocolatey pancakes stuffed with thick Oreo whipped cream. I have just one word for these: uunnnnngggggghhhhh. Cake Batter Pancakes Maybe chocolate isn't your thing. You know, because you're an evil dictator or a mass murderer. That's fine. Try these sweet, mouthwatering Cake Batter pancakes by The Girl Who Ate Everything. Cake batter-flavored pancakes topped with a vanilla glaze and colorful rainbow sprinkles are exactly what you need to bring some joy to your sad, chocolate-less life. S'mores Pancakes Vivian & Me has made all your dreams come true with these amazing s'mores pancakes, packed with chocolate chips and slathered with marshmallow fluff. They look, in a word, amazeballs. I'm also quite partial to the version by We Are Not Martha (see last picture), which are absolutely slathered in chocolate. Included here as an honorable mention. When I make these, I'll probably end up making some kind of hybrid of the two recipes. Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes This is not fair. It is not fair that these pancakes exist, and I'm on a diet. The swirly cinnamon goodness and warm glaze is almost too much to handle. Pixelated Crumb, who brought these beauties into the world, calls them "hands down the most extraordinary pancakes I have ever had." I don't doubt her. Strawberry Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes It's fruit! It's healthy!! Right?? These look like they jumped out of Martha Stewart's kitchen and onto your breakfast table. With homemade strawberry syrup, delicate lemon flavor, and fragrant poppy seeds, you can't go wrong with this beautiful creation by La Creme de la Crumb. Double Chocolate Pancakes If you really, really want dessert for breakfast, then you'd better go with these decadent Double Chocolate pancakes by Bakerella. The cakes, the sauce, even the GARNISH for Pete's sake is chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. YUM. You could also lighten them up by skipping the sauce and garnishing with fresh berries, but where's the fun in that? Lucky Charms Pancakes And now for something completely different. That's right; Lucky Charms pancakes. With marshmallows in the cakes as well as on top! Now THAT'S magically delicious. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day, or just I'm-An-Adult-I-Eat-What-I-Want Day. Get the recipe from Betty Crocker. Apple Pie Pancakes with Vanilla Maple Syrup It wasn't long until somebody brought the apple into this. After bananas, apples and cinnamon might be the next go-to flavor combination for pancakes. You're in luck; these pancakes apparently taste exactly like apple pie. And topped with vanilla maple syrup? Forget it. Fall pancake heaven. Thank you, Averie Cooks. Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes ANOTHER green pancake? I thought those were once in a lifetime. But no โ€“ introducing Mint Chocolate Chip pancakes by the... interestingly named Caramel Potatoes (who names these blogs?)! With just the right touch of mint and yummy mini chocolate morsels, you're sure to love these despite their intimidating color. Breakfast Pigs In A Blanket On A Stick Oh god. Now for the motherlode. I can't stop thinking about these. And I WON'T stop thinking about these, I know, until I try making them myself. They're griddled breakfast sausages, dipped in pancake batter and deep fried. Then dunked in maple syrup and CONSUMED RAVENOUSLY. Mrs. Schwartz's Kitchen has really outdone itself on this one. Aaaaand that, my friends, concludes the list of pancakes you must try before you die. Although if you eat all of these on a regular basis, you might do just that. If you try any of the recipes, be sure to let me know how it turns out :) and snap a pic and make your own card, so we can all drool in jealousy!! XD
Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
These look simply incredible. Two of my favorite things, chocolate chip cookies and caramel, combined into one heavenly cookie creation. I was looking for more caramel recipes (because that's what I do in my spare time, duh) when I found this recipe from Table for Two. I mean, can you even imagine anything more perfect?!? Look at that gooey, warm caramel. Those molten chocolate chunks. That perfectly chewy cookie. Imagine how good these are fresh out of the oven. Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies Prep Time: 10 min. Cook Time: 13 min. Difficulty: Easy Recipe adapted from Table for Two Ingredients 3 sticks (1ยฝ cup) unsalted butter, softened 1ยฝ cup dark brown sugar, packed ยฝ cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 4 tsp. vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups bread flour (you may use all-purpose flour instead if you don't have it on hand) 4 tsp. cornstarch 2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 1ยฝ cups chocolate chunks ยฝ cup dark chocolate, finely chopped 18 caramel candies, cut in half to give you 36 Directions 1. Preheat oven to 350ยฐF. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. In another mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy (about 2 mins). Add eggs and vanilla. Beat 2 more mins. 2. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until fully incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips with a spatula. To form the cookies, take a spoonful of dough, and use your thumb to make a small hole and press the caramel into the center. Re-roll the ball to cover the caramel candy. 3. Bake for 11-13 minutes. They may look quite soft at this point, but remember they will continue to cook after you remove them from the oven. Allow them to cool completely on baking sheet, or else they'll break and caramel will ooze everywhere. Enjoy, my fellow cookie monsters!! This one's for @JPBenedetto โ€“ maybe you could find a way to work in some oatmeal here, for a little extra chew? :D <3 @Luci546 @MooshieBay @InPlainSight You guys might like this one as well :)
Green Tea Smoothies โ€“ Delicious, Healthy, and Help You Lose Weight
Celebrate summer with these yummy green tea smoothies! They're packed with seasonal fruit and all the nutrients your body needs, helping you eat smart and achieve your health goals. Researchers at Purdue University found that you stay fuller longer when you drink thick beverages like smoothies; replacing meals with smoothies ups your chance of losing weight and keeping it off for more than a year. Even if weight loss isn't one of your goals, drinking smoothies can help you sneak in more raw fruits and veggies into your diet. My dad, who's a total health nut, will throw everything from kale to tomatoes to raw beets into his VitaMix โ€“ but shockingly, you'd never know it! Using a little peanut butter, cinnamon, sweetened yogurt, or ripe strawberries can really mask the taste of less traditional ingredients. Why Green Tea? Green tea contains catechin polyphenols, which Swiss researchers have found significantly increase your body's metabolism of fat โ€“ meaning you burn more, faster. In addition, green tea contains less caffeine than coffee, which, coupled with the nutrients provided by other ingredients, will give you long lasting, non-jittery energy, unlike the buzz-crash-repeat vicious cycle of coffee. Give one (or all!) of these green tea smoothies a try โ€“ you won't be disappointed! Green Tea Goddess Smoothie 3 cups frozen green grapes 2 cups baby spinach, packed 1 1/2 cups strong brewed green tea, cooled 1 medium ripe avocado 2 teaspoons honey (or agave syrup) Avocados are packed with oleic acid, a healthy fat that's great for your heart. Plus, they've got more potassium than bananas, making them excellent supporters of healthy blood pressure levels. Source: Eating Well Blueberry Green Tea Smoothie 3/4 cups green tea 2 cups frozen blueberries 12 oz. nonfat vanilla yogurt 20 whole almonds, unsalted and dry-roasted 2 tbsp. ground flax seeds Almonds are high in magnesium, iron, calcium, and protein, as well as healthy fats that may help you lose weight, and certainly support a healthy heart and low cholesterol! Source: Food Antioxidant-Rich Berry Matcha Smoothie 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries (or a mix of all three!) 1/2 cup yogurt 1/2 cup ice 1 tsp. matcha powder Add some mango, kiwi, ginger, or a few fresh mint leaves to make this even yummier! Source: MatchaSource Mango Green Tea Smoothie 1/2 cup green tea 1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt 1 cup mango chunks, fresh or frozen 3-5 ice cubes Mango is one of my favorite fruits, and protein-packed Greek yogurt will keep you full and focused for hours! Source: Joy Bauer Cinnamon Honey Green Tea Smoothie 1/2 cup green tea, chilled 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 1 tsp. cinnamon 1 tbsp. honey 1/2 banana Like green tea, cinnamon has great metabolism-boosting properties. At only 139 calories, this low-cal concoction is better as a snack than a meal replacement. Source: Popsugar A Few Tips: Use frozen fruit. It's cheaper, easier to store, won't go bad, AND might even have more antioxidants than the fresh fruit you find in the supermarket, since it's picked and frozen at peak ripeness. To brew strong green tea, use two tea bags โ€“ but don't oversteep. Oversteeping can give your tea a bitter flavor that other ingredients might not succeed in masking.
Meatless Monday Recipe: Quick & Easy Pad Thai Spring Rolls
Making pad thai at home is deceptively easy, but making spring rolls is ridiculously fun! Combine both, and you have the pad thai tofu spring rolls below - a quick and creative meal you'll definitely find yourself making more than once. You should be able to find spring roll paper, tamarind, and chili garlic sauce in the ethnic food aisle of your local supermarket and most Asian grocers. 10-Ingredient Pad Thai Spring Rolls (Adapted From Minimalist Baker) MAKES 8 ROLLS INGREDIENTS: For The Spring Rolls - 14 ounces extra firm tofu 8 ounces white or brown rice noodles 8 - 10 white or brown rice spring roll papers 2 cups thinly sliced carrots 1 large handful fresh cilantro For The Sauce - 3 tablespoons tamarind concentrate 3 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce + more for tofu 3 - 4 tablespoons coconut sugar, agave, or maple syrup 1/2 lime, juiced 1 - 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce + more for tofu For Serving (Optional) - Peanut sauce (Check out my Vegan DIY: Thai Peanut Sauce recipe card.) Sriracha Directions: 1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Wrap tofu in a clean towel. Set something heavy on top - such as a cast iron pan - to press out liquid for 15 minutes. Then cut into 1/2-inch wide rectangular strips. 2) Arrange tofu on the baking sheet, giving each piece some space so it can firm up. Bake for 28 - 30 minutes to dry and firm the tofu. For softer tofu, bake for 20 minutes. For firmer, bake for 30 - 35 minutes. Set aside. In the meantime, prep carrots, cilantro, and cook rice noodles according to package instructions, then drain and set aside. 3) To make the sauce, add tamarind, tamari, coconut sugar, lime and chili garlic sauce to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Once it begins bubbling, lower heat to low and cook for 3 - 4 minutes, stirring frequently.Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more tamari or soy sauce for saltiness, chili garlic for heat, coconut sugar, agave, or maple syrup for sweetness, or lime for acidity. Remove from heat and set aside. 4) Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add baked tofu and 1 teaspoon each chili garlic sauce and tamari or soy sauce, plus 1 tablespoon of the Pad Thai sauce. Sautรฉ, stirring frequently, for 1 - 2 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. 5) Add cooked noodles to the still-hot pan over medium heat and add remaining Pad Thai sauce. Use tongs to disperse sauce and toss noodles. Cook for 1 - 2 minutes, then remove from heat and set aside. 6) Assemble a station for preparing the spring rolls with a shallow bowl or plate (for dunking the rice paper), bring a kettle or pot of water to a boil (to cook the rice paper with), and a clean work surface (such as a large cutting board). Gather all ingredients and add hot water to the shallow bowl or pan. Let it cool for 1-2 minutes, then add 1 rice paper at a time and cook/soften for 45 seconds to 1 minute. Lift and let excess water drip off, then transfer to your clean work surface. 7) Top with pad thai noodles, tofu, carrots and cilantro, then roll over once, tuck in sides, and continue rolling all the way up. Place seam-side down on a serving plate or baking sheet and cover with a damp, room temperature towel to keep fresh. Continue until all spring rolls are prepared - about 8. 8) Serve as is with a bit more chili garlic sauce or sriracha! Another great addition is the aforementioned peanut sauce posted above. Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
