Blueberry Banana Green Smoothie

My Nutri Ninja blender was sent to me without charge for review. All opinions are 100% my own.

Are you still full of carby tukey awesomeness? We JUST finished up all of our leftovers on Wednesday night. That’s a lot of turkey, and potatoes, and stuffing, and gravy. Oh the gravy! YUM! As much as I LOVE the Thanksgiving holiday feasting, it leaves me feeling a little over-indulged, and ready to make some room in my diet for some other healthy options for some quick lunches and snacks.

This was the actually the 1st thing I made in my new Nutri Ninja, and I was so impressed by this machine. I’ve had blenders before, but they’ve been nothing like this. I didn’t have to shake it, stir it, stop it and restart it a million times. It just works.

This smoothie really filled me up, and the addition of the oats really helped make this an actual meal and not just a snack. I didn’t add any additional sweeteners to this, and thought it was perfect. Your tastes may vary. I suggest adding some honey or maple syrup if you are watching your refined white sugar intake, but if not? Go on ahead and dump a little in.

Thanks Meg! It sure it. I was pretty surprised how much I liked it. I have been biased against any smoothies with vegetables in them!
