Jun 28, 2011If you have had surgery and still drink your protein shakes to get your 80g of protein a day...........I saw a demonstration at Costco the other day of a blender called the Blendtek. WOW. It's the same blender they use at Starbucks to make their fraps. Anyway, the blender is over 300.00. Since I don't have 300 spare dollars to spend on a blender, I started shopping around. I found a commercial blender, called the Ninja Kitchen System 1200 at Bed, Bath & Beyond for half the price. Then, with my 20% of coupon that I get in the mail almost monthly from them, I paid just over 120.00 for this blender. Let me tell ya...one of my best surgery related investments so far. I drink coffee, love starbucks frapps....so, now I make my own. Did you know that whipped cream in the can is less than 1g of sugar? heck yeah! I make coffee, pour in my sugar free hazelnut creamer, one cup of ice, 2 scoops of protein powder @ 45g of protein and blend it all together. Top it off with some whip cream from the can and walla! Better than starbucks cuz now I am drinking my protein too! anyway, just a tip if you like coffee. I have a hard time getting in my protein cuz i hate the way the shakes taste. They all taste too thick and they taste GROSS to me. I have 50 lbs to go to my goal weight and I am struggling! LOL. Hopefully, this will boost me up! :) Good luck ya'll.........
