Finding the right, healthy foods that my kids will eat for breakfast before leaving for school has become quite the chore. They absolutely love smoothies though and with all the things you can sneak into them, I'm thinking this will be a good bet for breakfast. What I'm wondering is, should I invest in a smoothie maker? Currently I just have a plain, semi-cheap blender and I can never get the consistency the way I like it. (I'm picky about texture.) I don't have a lot of money to spend on one right now, so if there's not a huge difference, I'll just stick with my blender.
What is your experience with smoothie makers, if any? Any recommendations? Also, any recommendations for good, healthy, protein-filled smoothies would be lovely!
