a magic death

oh magic bullet, how i way overuse thee.

today for my afternoon snack, i thought i’d make a fruit slush and top it with some frozen grapes. into the magic bullet i put some frozen mango chunks, a chopped plum that i froze last night, and some unsweetened almond milk. blend, blend, blend…and i notice it’s kind of leaking. blend, blend, blend…why is it leaking?! blend, blend, blend…what’s that weird noise? blend, blend, blend…un-screw lid…oh, that’s why. the base of the magic bullet, which also holds the blade, has a rubber liner that goes around the edge. apparently that little rubber liner wasn’t pushed in tightly enough, because it came out and got blended into my slush. buh-bye slush, down the sink you go. what a waste! and R.I.P. essential component of magic bullet. 😦

so i decided to make frozen fruit cereal instead. i used unsweetened almond milk because it’s what i have in the fridge right now, but this would have been so much better with rice milk or some light coconut milk. i forgot that i don’t really like almond milk straight up. but this was still tasty!

    Bummer about the MB–I had the EXACT same thing happen to me. Good thing I have a spare;) I highly recommend getting a hand blender though–I use mine all the time!

    Frozen grapes are amazing AND the shredded coconut looks so cute and funky lol. I hope this doesn’t happen to my roomie’s magic bullet. That thing is so convenient!

    Aww, sorry to hear the snack didn’t work out as planned, but at least you were able to create a new one that looks just as delicious!

    Hi there, I’m glad I found your blog! I saw your comment on CCK about oat groats…… I just sent out a twitter about how i just bought some and have no clue what to do with them, haha.

    I’m incorporating more high-raw into my diet and so I would love to find a way to prepare them w/o cooking them – perhaps into a desert, my fave? πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for any tips!

    MMM I loveee frozen grapes! They’re like nature’s popsicles. I’ve recently enjoyed frozen watermelon chunks too! You just have to thaw them for a couple of min..
