I’ve seen lots of recipes for smoothies, but most have too many ingredients or too much sugar. My favorite smoothie is any frozen fruit and either Diet 7-Up or any lemon-lime flavored diet soda. I know, diet soda isn’t good for me, but it’s my one vise. I don’t smoke, do drugs, drink or eat meat, but I LOVE diet pop.
Anyway, a year or so ago I bought this wanna-be stand-by for the much advertised bullet blender. It doesn’t whip milk into mousse like the Bullet says it can (I tried, I really, really tried), but it makes a pretty decent smoothie! And that’s what I needed. For my smoothie, 1-cup of frozen berries. Tonight I used organic strawberries. And approximately 1 cup of soda (check your fill line on your machine). Turn it over and blend!
When you open the container it will fizz just a little bit. If you’ve not gone past the fill-line you should be fine. If you’ve got the fruit to soda ratio correct it should blend up and pour immediately. However, sometimes if you’re a little off you’ll need to add more soda or more fruit. Just remember not to go over the fill line (it makes a HUGE mess 🙂
That’s it! Drink straight from the container with straw. It won’t last long – it’s delicious! And yes, there’s NO sugar added. Just fresh fruit & diet soda. About 75 calories depending on the amount of strawberries. You can add other things like a banana, but it totally changes the makeup. This smoothie is fresh, sparkling, and delish just the way it is.
Mine’s gone. Goodnight!
