For the past two weeks I’ve been weaning myself off sugar because I. am. addicted. For a sugar addict like me, it is so hard to give it up cold turkey!
Can anyone relate?
In order to trick myself into thinking I’m getting some sort of treat, I’ve been blending smoothies (or “milkshakes” as my son calls them) to drink. I just throw a few frozen berries, coconut milk, spinach if I have it, and sometimes a little protein powder into the blender. Every once in a while I even skimp a bit on the liquid so it’s the consistency of sorbet! Delish I tell you!
There’s only one problem. If those deep, dark berry bits are left in the blender for more than two minutes they suddenly become impossible to clean. So as much as I want to ignore the mess and savor that yummy treat, I’ve been using this shortcut for cleaning the blender:
Blender Cleaning Shortcut
After using the blender, fill it half-way with water, squirt a small amount of soap in it and run the blender for a few seconds.
Easy. Peasy. A few seconds now saves a lot of headache later!
What tricks do you have for cleaning your blender?
