Last-minute Christmas gifts for the smoothie lover on your list

Christmas Eve is Tuesday and if you’re still in need of a great gift for your favorite smoothie fan, here is our recipe for a great holiday present. Most things can still be ordered for next-day delivery on Amazon or you can find them in stores.

Ninja Ultima blender: If your smoothie maker loves big, produce-filled meals in a glass, this latest blender from Ninja is perfect because its 2.5-horsepower motor and 1500 watts of power can plow through a blender container of ice, frozen fruit, kale and anything else. And it’s hundreds less than the Vitamix. The blender comes with a large blending container and also has two single-serve containers with lids so you can blend and go.

Pines Wheat Grass: If you want to make a green smoothie but you’re all out of the fresh stuff, try a couple of teaspoons of this organic wheatgrass powder that actually tastes great. It has a slightly sweet taste and is loaded with nutrients.

Nutrition 53 Lean1 smoothie mix: This was our protein powder find of the year. We’re totally in love with the Cookies and Cream flavor, which has, depending on flavor, 20-30 grams of protein, 14 organic fruits and vegetables, 5 grams of fiber and phytosterols. You can either mix it with milk or water – we find it tastes better with something other than water.

Almond Breeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk: Though it only adds 30 calories, unsweetened almond milk adds body to a smoothie and the vanilla flavor adds an extra kick of creamy vanilla flavor.

Emergen-C: Wait – isn’t that a vitamin packet you ask? Yes, but this is our little smoothie-boosting secret that works great in fruity smoothies. Sure, you get a blast of vitamins but the fizz in the packet also “fluffs up” the smoothie, making it lighter and bigger. Any flavor will work, but we’re partial to the Pink Lemonade.
