From November through December it is usually a food eating frenzy around here.  Cookies, cakes, pies, fudge, and much more can be found just about anywhere we go.  And I feel the need to “sample” all of it…in the name of research of course :-)

Now I realize that most people associate smoothies with summer time.  But I am here to tell you that is a misconception.  Smoothies are a wonderful option to balance out all the eating you will be doing during the holidays too.  You get your dairy, fruit, and protein all in one glass.

Kids also love smoothies…I like to call this one a “milkshake” and watch my kids come running.  They are ice cream monsters…so, please do not tell them this has no ice cream whatsoever ;-)  I’m sure one day they will figure out that I have been “tricking” them with frozen fruit and greek yogurt, but for now mums the word.  The consistency of this smoothie has the creamy, smooth texture of ice cream, but without all those extra sugar calories.

That just means bring on the fudge…oh, wait that’s not how this is supposed to work.

Smoothies are also great for those days when you have to run errands and need to eat on the go.   I love how quickly I can have a smoothie made using the Hamilton Beach Smoothie Smart Blender.   I drop all my smoothie ingredients into the blender and hit the Auto Smoothie button.  45 seconds later I have a perfectly blended smoothie.

Pour it into a to go cup using the no mess pouring spout, and you are ready to head out to the stores for a day of shopping…or fudge testing.  Whichever comes first.

    I would definitely try this Coconut Mango Smoothie as it sounds so delicious! I would love to have a smoothie every morning and this gift would certainly make that possible!

    Strawberry & Banana is always good. However, I have some Blackberries in the fridge that would be good with a banana!

    I’d make an Orange & Raspberry Smoothie right now, but it’d be fun to make smoothies that I’ve not had before too!! :)

    Hmmm… Probably the Coconut Mango smoothie… I showed the recipe to my hubby – and he said “Mmmm… right up my alley! And we could add some spiced rum to it!”
    (My hubby drinks less alcohol in a year than most folks do in a weekend)
