An easy to make strawberry avocado smoothie that's low carb, paleo, and keto friendly. It's also dairy-free but tastes so creamy, you'd never know.
I've been struggling to make a good smoothie because the two blenders I have don't do a very good job. That's why I was really excited to receive a new Cosori blender.
The problem with my other blenders is that they don't do well chopping ice or frozen fruit. But the Cosori blender had no issues at all blending them in.
I'm ready to ditch my old blenders as I have no use for them now. And, this powerful little personal blender doesn't cost as much as some of the comparable ones.
To test out the blender, I made a strawberry avocado smoothie. It's just a blend of frozen strawberries, avocado, coconut milk, lime, stevia, and ice.
It takes only a couple minutes to whip up this delicious smoothie. You just dump all the ingredients into the blender and give it a whirl.
I probably had the blender on a lot longer than needed. I'm just so used to my old blenders that don't do a good job of blending in frozen items.
It only took a few seconds for the Cosori personal blender to churn out a creamy strawberry avocado smoothie. I was really impressed at how fast and powerful the blade is.
Cleanup was a breeze too because all the parts are dishwasher safe. Now that I have the right tool, you can bet that I'll be enjoying a lot more low carb keto smoothies.
I'm also seeing a lot more frozen drinks in my future. I rarely drink so they will most likely be the virgin variety unless I have some drinking friends over.
The Cosori smoothie blender is just what I needed. It came with two of the larger 32 ounce bottles and a smaller 24 ounce one.
There's also two lids included. One of them has a flip top for easy pouring. But the strawberry avocado smoothie I made was too thick to come out the small hole easily.
I can't wait to try out more delicious beverages. The blender came with a recipe booklet full of ideas so I'll be testing some of those out with low carb substitutes.
If you are in the market for a new personal size blender, definitely give this one made by Cosori a look. It even has little suction cups on the bottom to keep the base from sliding on the counter when using.
To see how well it does in making smoothies, I made a quick video so you can see for yourself. You'll find the video in the recipe card below.
