Do you ever find that your protein shaker just doesn’t leave you feeling extremely excited about the texture of your drink? I don’t know about you but I like my protein shakes to feel like I’m drinking a smoothie! I have been looking at these little blenders in a ton of brands for about a year and couldn’t find one that was a reasonable price that also had good reviews…until yesterday!
Yesterday, we went to several stores shopping for Taylor’s dorm room and I looked at every store we went into at the variety of these little portable blenders but again, most were $40-$150 for a tiny 1 smoothie blender!
On our last stop, my mom and I went into Best Buy looking for a coffee pot, while she was checking out I thought I would do one more sweep and I struck gold and didn’t even know it. I decided to purchase the Hamilton Beach Personal Creations Blender for under $20. I did a quick review search and know that Hamilton Beach sells quality products. On the way out of the store, the man that stands in the front of the store noticed the blender and commented that I just bought the best blender! Ha! He went on to share that he had the high end Nutri Ninja Pro Blender and had loaned it to a friend and hadn’t gotten in back yet so he purchased the Hamilton Beach Blender and loved it as much as his Nutri Ninja! Sometimes the littlest things make me so excited!
I have made 2 protein smoothies in less than 12 hours and am 100% happy with this blender! Here are the things I love about it:
Ice Crushing Power
Blend & Drink form the Jar
Easy to Clean & Dishwasher Safe
Compact & Lightweight
Chocolate Banana Smoothie Recipe
In the blending cup add:
14 ounces of water or almond milk
5-6 ice cubes
1 scoop protein powder
1/2-3/4 of a banana sliced
Then blend and enjoy straight from the blender cup!
I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July! I would love to hear your favorite smoothie recipes! You can share by leaving a comment below.
