Cherry Pie Smoothie

It’s cherry season! This Memorial Day, I was so excited to see boxes of bright red cherries stacked up in the fruit section of my grocery store. I brought home a box and made this cherry pie smoothie, which includes fresh cherries, graham cracker crust, vanilla yogurt and milk. If you don’t have the energy to make a cherry pie (if you’ve made one before with fresh cherries, you know the amount of work involved in pitting the cherries one […]

Coconut Cream Strawberry Daiquiri

This recipe is natural, decadent and delicious. A strawberry daiquiri on its own is a force to be reckoned with: a fresh strawberry smoothie with alcohol? Yes please! Combine that with slightly whipped coconut cream, though, and you’re in a different league of tasty. With the Magic Bullet’s help, we’re not only blending the daiquiri, we’re creating powdered sugar and whipping our own coconut cream. Coconut Cream Strawberry Daiquiri Ingredients 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced 1 1/2 cups ice […]

Dark Chocolate Pudding

On its own, pure chocolate can be a great treat, but, let’s be honest, it’s rarely a satisfying snack. It’s something you usually enjoy in moderation and usually not abundance (unless it’s been one of those weeks…) Chocolate pudding, on the other hand, satisfies your sweet tooth without putting you into that food coma that so many other indulgent desserts do. I used a dark chocolate bar as the foundation in this recipe. The brown sugar, vanilla and cocoa powder balance […]

Chocolate Banana Frozen Yogurt

Chocolate and banana go so well together, it’s sort of bizarre that banana peels aren’t made of chocolate. Wouldn’t that be beautiful?! Well, luckily for us all, with just 3 ingredients and your trusty Magic Bullet, you can make this delicious chocolate banana dessert in no time. It’s a simple frozen yogurt that uses only a frozen banana, a little yogurt, and a touch of cocoa powder, and it’s really, really tasty. It sounds too good to be true, but it is! All natural […]

Blender Muffins

Muffins are always my go-to after school snack, especially when there are ripe bananas on the counter needing to be used! I love the idea of blender muffins because throwing everything into one container and having a machine do all the work for me sounds like the best idea. You never really know how crazy things might get when those kids walk through the door from school. One thing you can guarantee is that they are always hungry! Blender Muffins […]

Twist the cap open […]

German Pancake

For those who are unfamiliar, a German pancake is a delicious pastry pancake that’s thin, light and delicate, and works well as both a breakfast or dessert treat. It’s extremely easy to prepare with the help of the Magic Bullet, and yields a whole lot of pancake, thanks to how much the dish grows in the oven (it’s fun to watch!) A great substitute for the traditional pancake, and great for that New Year’s day hangover. You’re welcome. German Pancake […]

Gingerbread Smoothie

Even though you can enjoy gingerbread any time of the year, I always seem to eat the most of it around the holidays and forget about it the rest of the year. This gingerbread smoothie can be enjoyed all year long, but is especially fun and festive around to make around the holiday season. You can make the healthy version by omitting the crushed gingerbread cookies and simply enjoy the gingerbread flavor from the molasses, ginger and spices blended with […]
