It's not uncommon to wake up the day after Thanksgiving and make a turkey sandwich topped with leftover cranberry sauce, stuffing, and mashed potatoes. But would you ever take those sides and toss them in the blender for a smoothie?

Well, stay with us here, because Nutribullet's resident recipe developers used a Nutribullet to blend several leftover smoothie that feature ingredients like green beans, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, and stuffing. Yes, you read that right.

One of the more shocking creations, the green bean casserole smoothie, is a jarring combination of green beans, cream of mushroom, garlic, and a handful of various seasonings.

Want something sweeter? Nutribullet also has smoothie recipes using more conventional ingredients like cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes. Their pumpkin pie smoothie, for instance, is made using pumpkin puree, banana, almond milk, almond butter, maple syrup, and pumpkin spice.

As bizarre as the smoothies sound, John Olson, Brand Manager at Nutribullet, said that they "taste awesome."

"These recipes align wonderfully with Nutribullet's commitment to creativity, speed, and convenience," Olson said in a statement. "Somewhat unexpected, they taste awesome and genuinely evoke the feeling and flavor of an actual Thanksgiving feast. We love seeing our consumers get creative with how they use their blenders and hope these recipes encourage everyone to have a little extra fun this holiday season."
