I'm sooooo smooth!

You know when you go to the store to pick up ONE item and about an hour later you have had to go get a bigger cart for the mound of stuff that you don't actually need can't live without? Last week we headed to Target to get a new vacuum cleaner. Not even a big one which might involve some decision making, but a simple, little dirt devil/dust buster type deal for our equally little apartment. Easy enough! This shouldn't take long! Well... If you have been to a Target lately, you would have noticed their super cool "back to college" sale where everything is so funky, super bright and colourful. Like a magpie, I am attracted to anything shiny and we ended up with a whole cart full of unnecessary items and a dwindling balance in our bank account.

The item I am about to showcase was one of the "it's turquoise, I need it now!" items.
How cool is this blender? And even cooler, was the price which was originally $24.99 and marked down to $17.99. Score! Ever since the purchase it has been 'Smoothie Central' around these parts. YUMO! Just the perfect drink for Summer.
So far I have become an expert at making "Strawberry, Banana, Kiwi & Blueberry" , "Banana, Mango & Pineapple", and "Strawberry, Banana & Pineapple" combinations along with yummy chocolate and mint chocolate chip milkshakes. (Goodbye Baskin Robbins!) 
Are you a smoothie expert?
Any recipes you can pass along?
