My Go-To Detox Smoothie + Blendtec Giveaway
Exciting stuff happening today!!! I’ve got one last holiday giveaway for my favorite readers and I saved the best for last! Two awesome favorites to share with you- my go-to detox smoothie and Blendtec giveaway.
This veggie-filled, protein-packed smoothie is truly the most delicious nutrient-rich smoothie! During the summer, I had one every single morning for my first meal of the day. Since the weather has turned a little colder I don’t crave them quite as much as during the summer, but they’re definitely my go-to when I’ve been enjoying too many Christmas cookies!
And Blendtec is my go-to blender! I’ve owned the Ninja, Vitamix and Blendtec and honestly, in my opinion, Blendtec is the highest quality premium blender on the market. If you’re interested in gifting someone (or yourself) a Blendtec for Christmas, the certified refurbished blenders are $30 off with free shipping.
If you’ve never used a Blendtec, let me tell you, it’s 100% worth every penny. I’ve had mine for about 2 years and love everything about it. You can make batter, cocktails, smoothies, soup, ice cream, seriously everything. And have you ever seen the twister jar? It makes nut butter in SECONDS. I also use it to make quick drinks. It’s nice to have the option of a large blender while still having the smaller jar option too. And they are very easy to clean, which makes life even better.
Love all of fun messages! And a perfectly blended mouth-watering smoothie!
