Some days I'm in the mood for a smoothie. Other days I prefer yogurt with fresh fruit
and granola. Well today I came up with the bright idea to combine the two and created
my first smoothie parfait. Isn't it pretty!
A few months ago I discovered Pitaya (also known as Dragon Fruit) smoothie packs
while shopping at Whole Foods. The pretty pink color lured me in and I've been
enjoying them ever since. Pitaya has a mild sweet watermelon taste, which I love.
Combined with yogurt, fresh fruit and granola, my dragon fruit smoothie parfait is
perfect for breakfast, a snack or even dessert!
The secret to a good smoothie is a good blender.
The Hamilton Beach Professional 1500 Watt Peak Power Quiet Blender is THE best
blender I have ever used! With a blade speed of over 105 mph, it blends through ice,
frozen fruit and other ingredients in seconds. No more chunks of frozen banana left
in my smoothies! It has four program settings, smoothie, ice crush, puree and
clean. The variable speed dial provides blending control for restaurant quality results
I'm usually the first one up in the morning in our house and I love how the removable
quiet shield dampens the noise during the blending process. Now I don't have to worry
about waking anyone on mornings that I make my protein smoothie. The 32 oz. jar is
BPA free, shatterproof and dishwasher safe. The one touch auto clean program makes
cleaning so easy.
