Wow do I have an awesome product to talk about that I just know your gonna absolutely love, and that is the Blendtec Blender. And guess what else? I also have an amazing giveaway for you valued at $574.00!
I have always LOVED cooking and baking and spend a lot of time in the kitchen coming up with great new recipes to share with my family and friends. Smoothies have always been a favorite in our house but we have never been able to get the ice all the way chopped like we want it and getting all the ingredients perfectly blended like we wish. We also drink a lot of protein shakes and I love to make them like a milkshake so they are more fulfilling. We have the same issue with our protein shakes which is the ice just never completely chops all the way up like it should. So drinking it from a straw is never an option because of this. Also one thing that I have always wanted to do was make my own peanut butter. With that being said I am super excited to tell you about this new product I recently reviewed, called the Blendtec Total Blender Classic Series and the Blendtec Twister by Blendtec.com.
Let me start off by saying this is one of the most amazing fun products. And I am not just saying this. This blender just simple rocks it’s as simple as that. Not only can I make perfect smoothies now and wonderful textured protein shakes. But I can now make my own peanut butter!! This blender will make almost anything I am not even kidding. Such as: Soups, Muffins, Dressings, Frozen Coffees, Whole Juices (Yes it makes juice too!), Dips, Batters, Mixed Drinks, Smoothies, Marinades, Milkshakes, Ice Cream and More! Add the Blendtec Twister attachment and you can make Baby Food, Guacamole, Nut Butter, Hummus, Pesto, Thick Shakes, Pasta Dough, Pie Crust, Energy Bars, Veggie Burgers, Bread Crumbs, Mayonnaise and More!! You can even make things like powdered sugar and your own whipped cream.
A little more information on the Twister Jar
Lets just talk about some of the fabulous things this machine has to offer. The Blendtec Total Blender Classic Series comes with a recipe book, owner’s manual, DVD and a 7 year warranty! It’s BPA FREE and stands 15″/38.1 cm tall. Touch pad controls with digital display screen and a stainless steel single blade. 1560 Watts and the stainless steel blade spins at over 300 mph. Six pre-programed cycles as well as manual controls. The jar is very light weight and easy to pour. The Twister jar comes with 2 lids: the Twister Lid and the Twister Gripper Lid. You also get a spectacula (its actually a spatula) for scrapping out all of your blended yummy goodness. And these are just some of the great things this blender has to offer.
I decide I would make a smoothie. So I went simple and did the first one in the recipe book that was provided. I loved that the recipe book is hard cover , spiral bound and 213 pages long. So the recipe I choose is called Mixed Fruit Smoothie. This recipe called for grapes, oranges, bananas, strawberries and ice. I didn’t have any strawberries so I decided to just substitute them with extra oranges.
All I had to do was add the ingredients in order as the recipe called for and hit the smoothie button. Funny thing is I thought like any other blender I hit the smoothie button then the next button to get it to start. And at this point I didn’t have the lid on and the machine had started once I hit that button. We were so close to having an all out smoothie disaster in my kitchen. And we were just laughing so hard as this point it was tough to collect my thoughts and get the lid on. But I got it on pretty quickly once I came to my senses and realized what was about to happen. As the blender was making the smoothie you could here it speed up and slow down. Here is the cool part, the blender shut right down once the smoothie was complete. I was amazed how everything blended perfectly and smooth. Then we topped our smoothies off with a spoonful of fat free whipped cream. There were no ice chunks and we could drink them with a straw!
My family and I changed our eating habits about 7 month ago. And we have all been losing weight. The Blendtec Blender will definitely be coming in handy for making healthy new recipes. I plan to try out the Twister next and make our own healthy peanut butter. There is a recipe in the book for Cocoa-Nut Almond Butter that just looks divine and I can’t wait to try it. I also never thought I would be making dough in a blender. When I said this blender almost does everything I meant it!
The Blendtec Blender is very well made with top of the line technology. The base is heavy duty and very sturdy. It’s also very easy to clean. Did I mention it spins over 300 mph! That makes for some fast blending! When you get a chance check out some of their Will It Blend videos. You will be shocked at what they blend, and the Blendtec Blender still survives. I bet the blender you have now will not do that. I know mine wont. I posted a video below I think you will enjoy.
