So you are getting ready to leave the house and running late, so at the last-minute you contemplate stopping by a smoothie place. Did you realize you could save money if you got up a little earlier and just made your own smoothie? I know it is difficult to schedule time for such things, but making a smoothie at home is fresher, and the ingredients are easier to control. For this smoothie I pureed six bananas with a cup of strawberries and a small orange. I added a bit of almond milk to the base of the blender to aid in blending.
Create whatever smoothie tickles your fancy, but just think of all the cash you can save by blending at home. Also, you do not have own a Vitamix blender to make smoothies, although I do admire those machines. My Oster blender gets the job done, and it has lasted me for two years, which is longer the last Magic Bullet blender that conked out after four months.
