Avocado Guacamole in the Magic Bullet

GREAT Guac dip with Tortilla chips or on top of nachos!
Apron Madness

I used the large cup with cross blade on my Magic bullet. Cut the semi soft avocado in half, take out pit & spoon out the avocado. Add a clove of garlic, a sqirt of lemon juice & squirt of lime juice. A bit of salt & calantro (optional). Pulse blend. Add cut up tomatoes (I like vine ripe cherry) & chopped Green Chilies, Pulse chop. Put in a bowl & stir in some sour cream & a little salsa (optional) to taste.

Dip Tortilla or Pita chips or add to the top of Nachos or burritos.

Fast Smoothies with Magic Bullet

Apron Madness

I went to Sam's club & picked up a large box of Assorted flavored Yogurt, large bag of Frozen Dole mixed Fruit (we like the Strawberry, Peach, Mango mix) & Peach Mango Juice.

Use the cross blade & large or small cup (depending on how much you want to make) for the Magic Bullet. Add about 1/2 cup with frozen fruit & fill 1/2 way with juice of your choice. Blend until pureed. May need to pulse, shake a little or open & mix it down. Then add 1 little container of yogurt (flavor of your choice) blend well & enjoy.

Feel free to add any vitamin, protein or fiber powders. Great for a quick breakfast to take along on the drive to work or school!
Super easy to make & even the older kids can make their own.

Magic Bullet recipes from

Yes.. I got a Magic Bullet set for Christmas & am already using it alot!
So for the next few days, I'll post some of the "thumbs up" & Thumbs down" creations I have tried.

So go get on your Apron from & join us in cooking Quick & Easy recipes with your Magic Bullet!

CREAM of Chicken (or turkey) soup!

This was just the BEST soup! We all started getting sick & I decided to make some soup for my daughter & I.

Use the cross blade & the larger cup...
Now I had Home canned Turkey & broth from Thanksgiving but you can use any chicken broth, water & bouillon and then use left over chicken, a chopped cook chicken breast or canned chicken. (or leftover Turkey)

I chopped about 1/4 to 1/2 carrot (chopped tiny). 1/2 thin sliver of onion... put in cup with about 2 or 3 Tbsp meat & fill 1/2 to 2/3 way up with broth. Add a pinch of poultry seasoning & salt.
Microwave till carrots are just about tender... 3 - 5 min depending on how many & how thick you cut them.

Then blend on the Bullet till creamy. Add some Heavy Cream to about 1/2 inch from the top... blend for just a few seconds (enough to blend).... enjoy!!!

Tip... you can do all this & use a blender, food processor or hand blender instead if you don't have a Magic bullet
