This orange and poppy seed smoothie that I created for the launch of the new KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series blender tastes like a muffin in a glass, and satisfies a craving for a baked treat without the need to bake. It's also a healthier sweet treat. Depending on the size of your oranges you may want to tweak the amount of orange to get the balance juuust right for a magic muffin experience.

The secret to nailing the batter flavor is a blend of raw cashews and rolled oats. To that, you can add whatever flavors you want - fresh or frozen fruit, juice, extracts, spices, herbs, and superfoods.

The great thing about the new KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series blender is that it has the most power at the blade of any blender, so it pulverizes the cashews and rolled oats so you get a silky smooth consistency.

Because I own almost every blender on the market, it's been really incredible to see how this blender compares to other high-speed blenders on the market. I test my recipes extensively with a variety of blenders at different price points to make sure they're accessible to people using all kinds of machines. The Pro Line® Series blender consistency out performs other high-speed blenders to blend recipes faster and with a smoother consistency.

This blender takes blending to a new level with the world's first insulated dual-wall container (that heats soup faster than any other machine), a die-cast metal base, gorgeous colors to match your stand mixer, and a 10-year warranty. Other brands offer a 7-year warranty. To learn more about the features of this blender, watch my videos.

Leave a comment below and let me know what you think of this smoothie, and read below about why I add probiotic powder and salt to all of my smoothies.

*Probiotic Powder - I add 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.

*Celtic Sea Salt - I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.
