Pomegranate Mint Spritzer

There is something about sparkling drinks that make them more sophisticated than other drinks. If you add sparkling water to any plain juice, it magically transforms into a fancy drink. In this non-alcoholic spritzer, sparkling water is mixed with pomegranate juice and lime juice in the Magic Bullet blender, and infused with mint, lime wedges and fresh pomegranate seeds. These flavors combined with carbonation create a refreshing drink suitable for any special occasion. Pomegranate Mint Spritzer Recipe Ingredients 2 cups […]

Blackberry Basil Spritzer

I realized that lately we have been having the same few drinks over and over for dinner – BORING! Finally, one night I decided to get creative with some sparkling water, blackberries, lime, basil and my Magic Bullet. I call it the Blackberry Basil Spritzer. OK, so I guess it isn’t really a true spritzer since this is a non-alcoholic beverage. The blackberries give it a nice fruity taste that is not too sweet, while the basil adds unique dimension of […]

Chocolate Pumpkin Smoothie

Come fall, I am totally ready to embrace all things that go with the season! Pumpkin begins to slowly creep back into my life and I get so excited at the sight of everything pumpkin in the grocery stores. Unfortunately, the first day of fall is not always the cool sweater weather I am expecting, especially living in the desert! So this smoothie is a combination of the fall flavors with the summer weather. Ingredients 3 Tbsp. pumpkin puree 2 […]

Eiskaffee (Iced Coffee)

  Normally when you ask for an iced coffee at a cafe, you get a cup of coffee with ice cubes in it plus or minus milk. I was surprised when I asked for one in Germany while on vacation and I got an iced coffee with vanilla ice cream in it. Let me tell you, the ice cream made it so much more delicious! I especially like to add ice cream to my iced coffee on really hot days, […]

Cantaloupe Smoothie

Cantaloupe doesn’t get enough love. It’s in season now and it’s a delightfully sweet fruit that can highlight any meal or snack. It’s often the last thing eaten in a fruit salad, but I’ll never understand why. I would eat ripe cantaloupe all day if it were socially acceptable… But alas, for those of you who might skip on this summertime melon, I give you a delicious option that’ll help you get your daily dose of cantaloupe: a smoothie! Now, […]

Kiwi Agua Fresca

Kiwi Agua Fresca Ingredients 2 kiwis 1 1/2 cups water 1 tsp. agave sweetener Directions Slice kiwis. Combine all ingredients in Magic Bullet and blend until smooth.

Strawberry Lemonade Slushie

Do you remember those red and blue gas station slushies as a kid? Those are what this drink reminds me of, except representing a much healthier version! There are no artificial dyes and I minimized the sugar in this recipe. I used frozen strawberries to get the cold slushie effect, but feel free to add in some fresh strawberries if you have some you need to use up! The lemonade part is very easy to make with only three ingredients: fresh […]

Grasshopper Smoothie

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In celebration of all things green today, I made this green grasshopper smoothie. Don’t worry, it doesn’t contain any real grasshoppers! It is inspired by grasshopper desserts, which usually contain mint and chocolate. This healthy smoothie is loaded with spinach, banana, almond milk, mint extract, and cacao nibs. It is really refreshing when cold, so I like to freeze my bananas beforehand and use a handful of frozen spinach straight from the freezer. Fresh mint leaves […]

Coconut Mocha

Coconut, coffee, and chocolate—is there anything more delicious? Beat the morning blues with this tasty concoction and you’ll be ready to take on the day!

Winter Squash Spice Latte

During the colder months, it’s nearly impossible to drop into a coffee shop and not notice a massive advertisement for some sort of pumpkin drink. And while the pumpkin deserves to have its moment, the Magic Bullet helps us realize that you can get just as much flavor and seasonal delight out of other winter squash relatives. Blending them in the Magic Bullet gives us a similarly deep and sweet flavor that’s familiar but refreshing. Winter Squash Spice Latte Ingredients […]
