Lauren DeMaio, Magic Bullet’s first ever Kitchen Magician, spent her early years with a love for food. Surrounded by loving family, loving hearts, and huge appetites, it was always on the forefront. The 28-year-old ‘spark plug’ recently relocated from Boston back to her home state of Connecticut, where she works as an Operations Manager for a trade show management company by day and a slave to the stove by night. Always high on life and short on time, she found a way to make meals happen – using what else but the Magic Bullet Blender.

BOOSTER. JUICE. More like, I’m gonna boost ya’ WITH this juice.

No, I won’t be stealing your car again.
Yes, I will be making your life better, your body happier.
And yes, this sure as heck will help get your tush in gear.
Fire up that Magic Bullet Blender, baby.

We got fruits. We got veggies. We got almond milk.
All natural. No preservatives. No nonsense.
Toss some brown rice powder for added PROTEIN.
It’s a no-brainer.

The boyfriend Aaron and I made this concoction for the first time while I was up in Canada in October, hence the added brown rice powder for additional protein. We used raw, plant-based protein powder – the brand was Sunwarrior. Google it. (No I am not promoting products – it’s just legit and very good for you).

I wanted to explain that added protein, because I know if I read that note above and then saw a picture of a broad like me. who openly talks about how she wishes they made camel packs for melted cheese, I’d be judgmental, too.

On that note, Thanksgiving has left me resembling a bloated, hybrid version of Antonio Banderas and Frida Kahlo, so you can bet your bullhorn that I whipped out that Magic Bullet Blender this morning and toted some of this liquid gold to work.

See below, babes.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup carrot juice (or cranberry, apple or orange juice)

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened, no sugar added, frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened, no sugar added, frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 cup julienne carrots
  • 3 large kale leaves
  • 2 tbsp brown rice protein (optional)
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cocoa

Directions
1. Add all your ingredients to the blender pitcher.


2. Add water and fill to about to about ¾” from the rim.

3. Blend for 10 seconds. Check. Blend a bit more if you’d like. You’re done.

Talk about covering all your nutritional bases in one shot, eh?

Ever hear that song by Crystal Waters? 100% Pure Love?
