Last week I was looking for something in the pantry and found a kitchen appliance I totally forgot about - a smoothie maker. Once a gift from my father-in-law, it was successfully buried under grocery stuff and was absolutely virgin, just from the store.
To improve this sad situation and give it a new better life I decided not to procrastinate anymore (who knows me knows that I am the Queen of Procrastination) and put it to action immediately. I was not in the mood going shopping so for my first experience with the new machine I used what I had at hand: mango, vanilla ice cream and some milk. It worked out and built my relationship with me new kitchen friend. Hope we can go far from that:) For now, sharing my first - humble - experience with a smoothie maker.
Mango & Vanilla Smoothie
Ingredients (serves 2-3):
- 1 mango
- 1/2L vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup milk
- Chop mango
- Mix mango, ice cream and milk in a smoothie maker
- Blend well: start at low and increase slowly to high. Blend until desired smoothie-ness is reached.
- Serve and enjoy!
I served it a little bit unusual - not in a glass but turtle ninja ice cream bowls - just for fun. Someone told me that creative attitude can helps me get interested in cooking. I am trying, I really am:)
