As a vegan of over 20 years and momma to 2, I’m often asked about my go-to breakfast meal ideas. I like to keep it simple, with a Green Smoothie every morning, for the whole family. This gets us going on the right foot, with the all of nutritional boosts and benefits to start off our day!
I like to keep our green smoothies with a well-rounded variation of healthy fats, greens, protein, carbs, and added superfoods. I pack it all in my Oster Pro Blender with Texture Select Settings and 2 Blend-N-Go Cups , which has the perfect “Smoothie” setting to keep it easy and worry free every morning. What I love about the Oster Pro Blender with Texture Select Settings and 2 Blend-N-Go Cups, is it has the option to blend at a specific texture, and also a specific setting! Perfect for creamy smooth smoothie guaranteed every morning!
Oster ® Kitchen has expanded its legacy in blenders with the Oster Pro Blender with Texture Select Settings. This new blender gives you more control in the kitchen by allowing you to choose the texture of your smoothies, sauces, salsas, soups and more! I love changing the texture setting and using this in place of a food processor.
The Blend-N-Go Cup feature on the Oster Pro Blender with Texture Select Settings, is perfect for when I make my husband’s smoothie before he goes off to work and the kids aren’t up for their breakfast smoothie yet. I can make it just for him in his Blend-N-Go Cup and just place the to-go lid on and it’s ready for him to take out the door!
The Blend-N-Go Cup is also perfect when we’re all craving different smoothie ingredients, and I can make single servings for whoever wants something different. Or my personal favorite use, to make sauces, dressings, or salsa in smaller and easier batches.
Now onto the recipe that I hope you will try for your breakfast or any time of day, you can customize with your preferred fresh fruit/frozen fruit or added superfood supplements.
