Starting Shakes

The other day I didn't want to wait any longer for my blender to arrive so I decided to make a Body By Vi shake without the blender.  I still have blender bottles from TSFL so I used one of them.  I mixed 1 cup of Silk with 2 scoops powder and 1 T. of PB2.  The PB2 didn't get mixed in very well but it was still pretty good!  The bad part was I didn't feel satisfied afterwards... I know it was all in my head but it didn't stop me from going to the fridge and getting some leftover mashed potatoes from supper the night before.  At least I got some nutrients, right?!  My blender arrived yesterday!  So, for lunch I made a shake.  I tried my friend, Jodi's, recipe.  I used 1 cup of Silk, a splash of OJ, 2 scoops of powder, strawberries, blueberries, and banana.  All of my fruit was frozen.... even the banana!  A few days ago I noticed we had one banana left and it was just starting to get brown spots on it (have you noticed how fast banana's ripen!?... seems faster than before!) So, I peeled the banana and cut into 1 inch slices, put it on a plate and into the freezer.  After they were frozen I tried one... banana's are really good frozen!  Anyways... I added ice to that mixture and blended it until it was smooth.  Here's the funny part of the story... Jeremy was sleeping and I had read in reviews that it's pretty loud so I walked it out to the garage to blend it up! haha!  Whatever works, right?!  I threw it in a glass, loaded Annika up and met up with a friend to head to the city to get supplies for the house she and her husband are building.  It was a really good shake and left me much more satisfied than just the milk, powder, and PB2 (although, I do plan on making that again but with ice in the blender.)  I couldn't help but to make the same shake tonight as I did yesterday...

YUM!!  It's soo good!!
