Breakfast Smoothies Using A Stick Blender2013 May 24 | Written by: Katherine Cortes | Tags: Breakfast, Drinks
A stick blender is a good option for those who are concerned about portability and storage space. Despite its size, it’s convenient and can do a lot of functions, including pureeing soups, whipping cream, making hummus and mayo and so much more. But aside from these, it has one particular use that catapulted it into popularity: making smoothies.
Smoothies are so delicious, it’s easier to think of them as a treat rather than nutrient booster. They’re also quick and easy to make that you’ll have no problem whipping up one regularly for breakfast. We have below some breakfast smoothie recipes you can try.
Note: if you’re looking for a good-quality stick blender, we highly recommend Cuisinart Stick Blenders.
