I've been whipping up delicious simple smoothies for decades. Sometimes I whip my smoothies in my food processor or glass jar blender. Other times I choose to make a smoothie with a stick blender. If I choose a smoothie recipe without fruit chunks or ice, I simply combine ingredients, stir and enjoy a fast, tasty and liquid breakfast.
Smoothies made with frozen or fresh fruit, juice and milk or yogurt are the fastest healthy breakfast I know of to make and take when you're pressed for time or have to eat on the run.1 month ago

It's not the cheapest vacuum cleaner, but it really sucks - and I mean that in a good way.1 month ago
