Welcome, Magic Bullet, to my humble abode. I’m so excited for all sorts of multi-purposing in our future together.

But what to start with? Maybe something easy. And healthy. I read lifestyle blogs all day long and easy and healthy seems to be the trend nowadays so why not?

I decided to try out the Lean Green Smoothie featured on Camille Styles blog. I adapted it a little and my ingredients are listed below.

Here are the players:

Pretty healthy looking group right?

Lean Green Machine

Ingredients

  • 1/ 2 pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 English cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 ripe pear, peeled, cored and chopped
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1 cup of baby spinach leaves (I was hesitant about this but I did it anyway and couldn’t taste a thing! Which means its negligible flavor-wise, but essential for the healthy ingredients quota.)
  • 10 mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • Crushed ice

Instructions

1. Basically, you want to cut everything up…

2. So that it will comfortably fit in your bullet, like so…

3. Blend until you have a nice smooth… well, smoothie.

I decided on the green party cup because I intended to tote this delicious mix to work. But someone had different plans for this lean green machine.

It never even stood a chance.
