Refreshing Strawberry Basil Smoothie & A Mixer Giveaway

May 15, 2015

Hello everybody! I hope you’ve all had a great week and are looking forward to the weekend. I’ve had a crazy week so far. I’m wrapping up one of my first sponsored woodworking projects this weekend. I’m so excited to show you what I’ve been working on, but it’ll have to wait. Be sure to check back with me in a week or two! I’ve got an awesome smoothie recipe for you guys today! This is a recipe that my sister-in-law makes for her family on a regular basis. It’s really easy to whip up quickly and is a super nutritious snack. It’s absolutely delicious and I know you’ll love it too!

Since I’m featuring the Ankarsrum mixer all this month, here is some basic info on the Ankarsrum blender attachment used for this recipe.

  • 5 cup capacity
  • dull blade design for pulverizing food, not just chopping it
  • 2 part lid system provides a small opening for adding additional ingredients or oils for dressing
  • Blender port is a direct drive off the 600W Ankarsrum motor making it extremely powerful
  • Made of BPA free plastic

You can purchase the Ankarsrum blender attachment here.

Now for the yummy smoothie recipe I promised!
