If you want a tool that is convenient and can make healthy eating a breeze you need a good blender. It will not only save you time and money, but will assure you are getting the freshest, purest ingredients possible in your culinary creations. Why go broke on store-bought products that lose their freshness and are often full of preservatives? Get a blender and be a DIY girl. Your health and your pocketbook will thank you.
What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the word blender? Smoothies of course! There’s no easier way to get a great start to the day than a fresh smoothie. Add your favorite ingredients and in a few short seconds you’ll be sipping an awesome power-punched breakfast that will give you an edge all day. There are many different smoothies available that offer an incredible amount of health benefits.
Need to get up and go in the morning? Forget the coffee, try the “Wake Me Up and Keep Me Going” smoothie. Had a great workout and need a protein boost? Consider a Skinnylicious Protein Boost Smoothie. Feeling a little sluggish or bloated? Detox and replenish with a cleansing Detox Smoothie Blend. There are endless possibilities and flavor combinations so you’ll never get bored.
Think blenders are just for smoothies? Think again. You can use your blender to make homemade soups, dips, sauces, shakes, and even desserts. Blenders give soups like butternut squash soup a creamy, luxurious texture. Don’t want to use the stove on a hot summer day, use your blender to whip up a quick gazpacho or batch of salsa, and maybe even a fresh fruit sorbet for dessert.
A good blender will make you a better cook! It’s true! A great blender makes it easier to get the right textures and flavor blends in your food and drinks. Having a proper, easy-to-use and multi-purpose appliance also saves time and space in the kitchen. Why fumble around with tons of gadgets when a good blender can do so much at once?
To get the most benefits from your blender, you’ll want to invest in one that is powerful enough to handle a variety of tasks, from crushing ice to smoothly blending a variety of ingredients. We recommend a few different blenders depending on your needs and budget.
