Velvety coconut cream, fresh-squeezed lime and buttery cashews — this smoothie is a thick, yet refreshing energizer for long summer days.
After the unexpected loss of an “old friend” this past weekend, I’m happy to announce that the predecessor of my six-year-old Magic Bullet has arrived!
There are only a few kitchen appliances that I consider practical, worthy investments. The purpose of an appliance is to provide utilitarian value – to ease the tasks of everyday life. Yet too many kitchen gadgets in my household have greater worth as counter-hoggers and dust collectors.
However, the single-serving blender (such as Magic Bullet) is the MVP of my kitchen. It is my go-to tool and most-used appliance: dicing vegetables, pureeing soups, blending smoothies and shakes.
I use it several times a week, especially during the summer.
