I tried my new blender today! I made a banana and kale and almond milk smoothie with some flax seeds in, and it wasn’t horrible!
It was messy, though. First I found some green stuff oozing out from the bottom. Seems I had managed to unscrew the pitcher from the thing holding the blades in. So I cleaned that up.
Then I put in the bananas, but they didn’t want to blend, just hang out at the top, clumping everything up. So I had to take the pitcher off and poke at them, spilling green stuff all over the counter (thankfully I did this project next to the sink).
Next I blended everything and poured it into a cup – presto! But it was entirely too thick – more like nice cream than smoothie. So I poured in another cup of almond milk, and poured the “smoothie” back in the pitcher.
Third time was a charm (or am I up to fourth?), because when I poured it out this time everything was perfect. I’m glad I used the biggest cup in the kitchen – it needed it.
So I think next time I’m going to stick to a recipe. It all worked out in the end, but it was an odd, new experience. Hopefully when I try to make my next one, it will at least be less messy. 😀
