The Magic Bullet

Maybe I just don't watch enough television, but when my brother asked if I used a magic bullet, I thought he was making a sarcastic comment about how I've lost weight.

Come to find out, the Magic Bullet is a souped up "personal counter top blender," that'll do just about everything except cook your food.

Blair's favorite recipe sounds yummy.

"First, you freeze skim milk in an ice tray.
To make a peach shake, put one 8-ounce container of Yoplait low-fat peach-flavored yogurt into the Bullet. Add a couple of frozen milk cubes with just enough additional skim milk to blend. Voila! You've got a peach shake that'll make you think you're eating peach ice cream."

Blair says you can also slice bananas and/or strawberries before freezing, then mix frozen fruit with vanilla yogurt for a different flavored treat.

Can't WAIT!

I have a magic bullet and love it!! That shake idea sounds delish. I never thought of freezing the milk into ice cubes before.

My parents love their MB. I'm thinking of getting one myself. Hmmm, maybe a reward!

Sounds good. I've seen those commercials but always wonder if the product works as well in real life.

Have a terrific weekend!

I'm not much of a fan of smoothies and that kind of thing, but when you said peach ice-cream... makes me want to run right out and buy a Magic Bullet!

BTW: What does your brother think of the new slimmer you? :-)
