This post is sponsored by Walmart. The product selections are my own, and I only highlight and promote products that I truly love. Thank you for supporting the brands that support Sheaffer Told Me To!
If you’re a regular reader, you already know about my deep and abiding love for Walmart+. I’ve talked about it before, and I’m going to continue to talk about it every so often, because I feel as if convincing you to try it has become sort of a personal mission of mine. After all, it’s what this blog is all about! If I find something that I love, I not only want to share it with y’all, I’m going to do my best to encourage you to try it too!
The Walmart+ has lots of benefits that are great, but you might recall my claim that their FREE GROCERY DELIVERY (with a $35 minimum, restrictions apply) has quite literally bettered my quality of life. BECAUSE IT HAS. #andimnotevenbeingdramatic #notevenalittlebit
The hours I’ve saved.
The trips to the grocery store I haven’t had to go on.
IT’S BEEN NOTHING SHORT OF LIFE CHANGING.
Today we’re going to review what Walmart+ can do for you, just in case you still need convincing.
But listen, this is me
telling you begging you to go ahead and sign up. Walmart+ has become a MUST HAVE in my life, and if you give it a whirl, I just know it will be life changing for you too!
This particular Walmart+ order (seen below) had all the necessary ingredients for a smoothie that Carter and I have been enjoying on the regular. I hopped on Walmart.com one morning several weeks ago, selected all the necessary ingredients, and they were all delivered to my doorstep by that afternoon. And yes, I order frozen items for delivery alllllll the time and they are perfectly cold when they arrive! In fact, almost every single delivery has a box of Nutty Buddies in it. Carter can eat his weight in Nutty Buddies.
But before we get to the smoothie recipe and my handy dandy new portable blender, first we’re going to have a quick review of the service.
Today I’m going to hit the high points, but if you want to know allllllllllll about Walmart+ and all of the benefits, you need to click HERE.
On this post I share screen shots walking you through how I place an order, and I share tips and tricks for favoriting items and making your online grocery shopping “trip” as easy as possible! It really is soooo easy!

Thanks to Walmart+, dreaded in-store shopping can now be a thing of the past!
So a couple of weeks ago, I decided that Carter and I needed to start drinking smoothies again. I was on a total kick about a year ago and drinking them all the time, but I fell out of the habit once I ran out of our big bag of protein powder.
But you guessed it, I didn’t want to run to the store. Walmart+ to the rescue!
I just jumped online and ordered all of my favorite ingredients, and I went ahead and threw this portable blender into my cart too! There are certain items you’ll find that are able to be included in your grocery order, and this blender arrived with all my groceries. I mean, how convenient is that.
I loved the idea of grabbing this portable blender, especially for Carter. It makes it so easy for him to make his own smoothies and clean-up is a breeze!
The Beautiful™ Rechargable Portable To-Go Blender has a compact design that’s ideal for small space living and on-the-go portability. It includes powerful rechargeable batteries that make 22 drinks in just one charge. Durable 4 tip stainless steel blending blade blends nutritious smoothies, iced drinks and much more. Blending jar and lid are dishwasher safe for hassle free cleaning!
You charge it with a USB cord, so it really is totally portable. It doesn’t need to be plugged into anything when in use.
I don’t follow any one recipe for the smoothie, I just combine things I like from several different recipes. And this particular blender makes it so easy to know that I’m making the right amount for 1 smoothie.
I start with ice, layer in some Greek yogurt, pour in some coconut almond milk, and add some frozen strawberries and frozen mangos (this makes the smoothie so cold and creamy). I then top it all off with chia seeds and protein powder. Chia seeds are high in fiber and omega 3 fatty acid and have all sorts of nutritional benefits.
You can find the protein powder we use HERE.
I like adding the almond and coconut milk because I really like the flavor, and its low calorie and no sugar.
I also saw on another smoothie recipe to add just a bit of honey, so I do one small squeeze.
The smoothie is delicious, it’s packed with good for me ingredients, and it’s so easy to make! I love that Carter is getting additional protein and fruit servings every time he makes one.

And just for fun, I thought I would again share Shay’s King Ranch Soup from my last Walmart + post. I picked this soup because she had directions for making it in a crock pot, AND I RECENTLY BOUGHT THIS CROCK POT! Isn’t she a beaut!
And do you want to see the best feature of this crock pot? Look at the handy dandy little lid rest! I love that I can easily stash the lid out of the way while serving.
I’m sad to report that this color is sold out, but it is still available in a really pretty “white icing”, and it’s $20 OFF right now, making this gem right under $50! What an incredible deal!
Here’s pics of another Walmart+ order I placed…
On this day, I made Shay’s Sausage and Tortellini Soup. Listen, your girl loves soup.
Thanks for the recipe, Shay! This has become a staple in our house since I first made it.
A huge thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this post. AND AN EVEN BIGGER THANK YOU TO WALMART FOR DROPPING GROCERIES ON MY FRONT PORCH! I can tell you this, I’ll be shopping less and smiling more!
