Back when I held the battle of the blenders, I kind of had a blender in mind and the response about the blenders confirmed my first choice.
I went ahead with the Magic Bullet and let me tell you - it has been amazing.
CSN allowed me to pick a product to try out so that is where my Magic Bullet came from. They sell kitchen tables , kitchen gadgets, outdoor items and really anything you can think of. I was excited to pick an item to review and super happy to see it in their personal blender selection.
The Magic Bullet came with 6 different cups (1 large, 1 small and 4 large travel cups), 2 blades, a shaker top, 2 sealable tops and base that plugs in.
My favorite part about the Magic Bullet is that it takes up so little space and is easy to clean. My regular blender is pretty big and works great, but it always seemed like such a hassle to get it out of the cupboard, use it then clean it. With the Magic Bullet I can actually use it every day if I want to because the blades are quick to hand wash and the cups I just throw in the dish washer. If the one I used isn’t clean, I just choose from another one of the six I have.
Of course I have been making a ton of smoothies with it, but I have used it for other things too. Pancakes have become even quicker in the morning now.
One Cup Power Pancakes
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
3 tbsp hemp protein (or protein powder of choice)
1/3 cup oats
1/4 cup flaxmeal
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp cinnamon
pinch of sea salt optional: sweetener if desired
Combine all ingredients in a large magic bullet cup (or your blender or food processor). Pulse until all ingredients are combined.
Heat your skillet to medium heat and coat with olive oil spray. After letting the mixture sit and thicken for 5 minutes, pour the batter into pancakes (about 1/4 – 1/3 cup) 3 or 4 at a time. Let it cook on one side for a few minutes until you see bubbles forming on the top. Flip and cook on the other side for a few minutes then repeat with remaining mixture. You should end with 8 pancakes.
Top with maple syrup if you want, or apple sauce and almond butter like I did!
