I got a blender for Christmas! 

S/O to the BEST Santas – my parents. I got a professional Ninja blender with all of the attachments! I had a $30 blender for the longest time, and it just didn’t cut it.

The Ninja is great and I highly recommend it (and I’ve only used it a few times!). I made hummus last night and a smoothie this morning, both turned out so silky smooth.

My smoothie this morning was awesome so I had to share:

  • 1 mango
  • 3 ice cubes
  • Cranberry juice (plain ol’ no sugar added stuff)
  • A bunch of cilantro
  • Splash of orange juice

Throw it all in the blender and blend that ish up!

I forgot to take a pic so enjoy this video from my insta story! And follow me @fortheblissofit 🙂

OkAy SO, cilantro. I know this is kind of a weird smoothie ingredient but it goes really well with the mango and this smoothie was actually delicious. I always have trouble using up my herbs before they go bad (even keeping them in a cup with water) so I decided to try them in new ways. Cilantro is nutrient and anti-oxidant dense. There are many health benefits to cilantro including cleansing, anti-inflammatory and digestive properties.
