I am working from home today and I had time to try out my new blender for the first time. I decided to make a green smoothie for breakfast.
Here are the ingredients all prepared and ready.
There is kale, celery and an orange from the garden, pineapple which I had already chopped so it is probably a bit smaller than necessary, 2 cubes of frozen passionfruit pulp. This was from our vine a few months ago. The small bottle contains powdered ginger. The root ginger came from my sister’s garden and I dehydrated and ground it. I added a teaspoonful to my smoothie.
Loaded into the blender and ready to go. I added about 300ml of water.
The end result. I had a large glass of this for breakfast and have enough for tomorrow as well.
This was an easy and successful introduction to my new, high-speed blender and I am looking forward to using it to create many more healthy options to add to our diet.
Hi Fairy. I have a vitamix and if using anything frozen, needs to be put in first eg your passionfruit blocks. Not sure if this is the same with your Optima. I think frozen go in first because it is hard. Just something to check. PS. Your smoothie looks yum! 🙂
That is really interesting. The instruction booklet for the Optimum 9400 says liquids first, then soft foods and finally hard/frozen items.
Thanks for your interest.
