Spring in Your Step Smoothie

by Lauren

Did you catch that cute little pun there? I’m so clever. This smoothie will most definitely put a spring in your step and it’s most definitely full of delicious Spring fruits!

Chrissy recently acquired a Magic Bullet. We are not the type to fall prey to infomercials that sell crazy items like this. No, no, no. But Costco on the other hand, yikes. It is a danger zone and please don’t even get me started on the luscious free samples galore they offer.

They have so much great stuff there and it’s all on steroids! Have you seen the giant apples!?

You think you’re getting such a great deal and then you hit the cash register. Aye.  BUT never have I ever regretted my decision to spend a week’s pay on items from Costco. Your bank account thanks you, but I truly feel for those of you who have not had the pleasure of overindulging in way too much of everything at this store.

Chrissy’s mama bought us her this Magic Bullet at Costco and it makes pre-work smoothie making so easy! The bullet came with 2 large to-go cups that you simply toss your choice of fruit, oats, agave, a little OJ and some almond milk into, attach the motor, flip it over and give it a whirl. Detach and drink.

Little Yellow Note: Do not freeze the fruit inside of the individual cups – they will not budge. I imagine the fruit was laughing at us when we tried to do this. Freeze the fruit separately then add them to the bullet to blend.

Sorry for this less-than-pretty picture, it was 7 am and I hadn’t had my cup o’ jo yet. Clearly, I was not in prime picture taking mode.

Chop your fruit into large chunks and freeze them in a bag or separate container. Add fruit, oats, agave, and almond milk to the Magic Bullet and blend. Detach from the motor, screw on the lid and drink!
