Smoothies are a way of life in this household. Ever since we decided to live a flexitarian lifestyle, smoothies have become breakfast almost every morning. The problem that I find with smoothies, though, is while they are quick to make, the cleanup can be a lot and they often are not filling enough. Plus, I never know what to pack my smoothie in for on the go.That’s why I try to make mine with extra ingredients that add that little something extra to tide me over until lunch.
Now, being that I love blueberry muffins, I thought this would be a perfect way to enjoy a smoothie and turn it into a protein shake. I have gotten creative lately in my kitchen so I was very grateful to be blessed to work with Vitamix and take my love of smoothies to a new level with the Vitamix Personal Cup Adapter. It makes breakfast even easier these days!
The Vitamix Personal Cup Adapter means that I can go from blending to drinking without extra dishes to wash. All it takes is a little rinsing and then placing it in my dishwasher and I’m done! I also love that I can make my own nut butters in it so that means I have even more ways to add that little extra to my morning drinks.

How to Make Blueberry Muffin Protein Shakes
Add your ingredients to your personal cup from Vitamix (it holds 20 oz!) Screw on your personal cup adapter and place it onto your Vitamix E310 Explorian Series Blender.
Turn your Vitamix E310 Explorian Series Blender to 1 and slowly increase to level 7. Blend for 15 seconds or so. Shut off machine and detach from it the adapter. Gently shake it to loosen up any chunks.
Place your adapter back onto your Vitamix E310 Explorian Series Blender and start on level 1, increasing slowly to blend for another 30 seconds on level 7.
Take off your machine and place your cup right-side up. Twist the adapter off and place your lid on your cup. Drink right away for best results!
