My Cuisinart Food Processor Is Great For Smoothies

I have tried so hard for years to become a smoothie enthusiast. I like smoothies and I know how to make healthy ones, but it was literally like pulling teeth for me to really get into a routine of making them. I hated how loud my blender was and no matter how hard I tried, I could never get my smoothies to the right consistency. They were never actually smooth enough. 

Another thing was that I hated cleaning my blender, especially when I was using it everyday to make smoothies. After reading about it on the internet, I realized that with a food processor I could make smoother smoothies in larger batches and actually freeze them. 

I figured it was worth a shot, and if it didn’t work out from a smoothie perspective, I could always use the food processor for other things. So I set off on some research to see what might be the best fit for me. I discovered KitchenWorksInc and chose to order myself the Cuisinart Custom 14 Food Processor. 

When the food processor arrived, I was anxious to get started. I had so many good ingredients and my inspiration was through the roof, kind of like the first time I was excited about making smoothies. I was just hoping it would stick this time. 

I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. The consistency was so much smoother and the batches were really big. Even the kale that I used was processed down really nicely, and that has never happened. 

I froze them in 8 ounce mason jars that don’t have shoulders. It’s an individual serving per jar which is perfect. Then I don’t have to worry about defrosting a large jar and forgetting about it and having it go bad. They are also much easier to fit in my freezer. 

Really the amount that I make is dependent on the space that I have in my freezer. I recently ordered a standalone freezer for extra food storage, so this is something that will resolve when I receive it. At that point, I can freeze however much I want at a single time. I’m so excited about this prospect. 

I’m finally sticking to my smoothie a day routine, and I’m so happy about it. I feel better physically and I’ve noticed a boost in my mental health as well. I really don’t think I would have been able to do it without my Cuisinart food processor.
