Blender Love – My New Blendtec!

My husband and I took the plunge and purchased a Blendtec Total Blender on Sunday from Costco online. The deal included not only the regular jar but also the Wild Side – normally a $100 value. I was excited for the Wild Side jar as it’s supposed to make smoothies in a whiz. I was expecting delivery in five to seven days so you can imagine my surprise when my husband opened the trunk of our car on Tuesday to this. . .


That sneaky guy opted for express shipping and didn’t tell me! I was a super happy camper that night!


The blender came with a DVD that covered a history of the company, recipe demonstrations and a brief overview of the blender. The user manual is essentially a ½ page - it's a VERY user friendly appliance.


We headed to Sprouts for smoothie ingredients and then I made this lovely concoction.
Strawberries, Mango, Papaya, Pineapple, Banana, Ginger & Lime
The delicious finished product! No tamper required.
D added a ton more ginger and lime juice and wowsers! What a spicy, tasty concoction.
I’m excited to play around with it more. D and I have big plans over the next couple of months with one more treat appliance that came in tonight! I'll blog on that in a couple of days.

What are some of your favorite blender recipes?

Last night my friend Sarah and I made bourbon pumpkin pie milkshakes... not at all healthy, but it was fun and tasty :)
