I recently bought a new Hamilton Beach blender, after my Magic Bullet died after only a couple of months of use. Seriously. I’m still really sore about that one. Hopefully this blender will last longer.  

I was so excited when my new blender finally arrived, that I just had to put it to use.  I gathered a few things I had around the house, and made a Strawberry Orange Pineapple Smoothie.  It came out really delicious, and writing this post makes me wish I had enough ingredients left to make another one right now!  It was so light and refreshing, and a perfect drink to sip on while Kayleigh was down for a nap.  I sure do love those rare Mom breaks I get.
