Kambrook Blitz2Go Blender, “Guilt Free, Chocolate, Banana, Blueberry, Walnut Smoothie”!

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedin

It was hot here on Saturday in Adelaide. I can feel the turn of the sun to that blistering heat of an Adelaide Summer and I am  not liking it. I am not a hot weather person. Added to that, I had a bad night with my type 1 diabetes the night before resulting in having to cancel my planned Annie Sloan chalk paint workshop at the lovely Brocante In the Barossa as I was too tired to drive to the valley.

Instead I spent some time with my family and did various jobs around the house (and snuck in a garage sale!). I decided I needed a treat and thought I would whizz up another recipe and do a Kambrook Blitz2Go Blender Review part 2.

(I was not sponsored for this post but did receive a Blitz2Go.)

As I am a spontaneous person I just looked at what I had that might make a yummy smoothie for afternoon tea.

Here is what I came up with:

The “Pick me up, Guilt Free, Chocolate, Banana, Blueberry, Walnut Smoothie”!

Ingredients

1 banana

15 or so Blueberries

6 – 8 walnut halves

1 tub of diet chocolate mousse (I used the Nestle dark one)

3 dessert spoons of reduced fat greek or European natural Yoghurt

2 good dessert spoons of  low fat ice cream (I used the Bulla one)

Skim milk to fill the container (about a cup I would say)

Method

  • Chop the banana into pieces and throw into the container
  • Throw in the rest!
  • Blend until smooth
  • Enjoy!

Verdict –  this is an easy product to use and I think it would blend pretty much anything you throw at it. I will try something with harder vegies in it next time. In terms of my recipe, again my middle son and I loved it, it was refreshing, with a nice blend of flavours, chocolate and banana being the dominant flavours but was a guilt free treat with the low fat and sugar products being used in the mix and adds a punch to your nutrients for the day with addition of blueberries and walnuts.

    hi,
    Just thought I would make a suggestion. Try raw cacao powder(am hooked on this stuff), 1 tablespoon coconut oil/cream/milk, ice, nutmeg and honey are also good combinations with these ingredients.
    ‘Love smoothies and have been feeding my boys on them for over 12 years.
    Try this green smoothie … 1 handful of baby spinach, one whole orange cut into pieces, 1/2 banana, 1 tspn grated fresh ginger, a dash/splash/glupglup of mineral water and a couple of cubes of ice. Very refreshing . You can even add cucumber pieces or rockmelon/pawpaw.

    Cheers
    Donna
