We’ve always been a smoothie drinking family and have more recently gotten in to green smoothies. I have been thinking about getting a Blendtec for about three or so years now…ever since our Magic Bullet died. I remember sitting at the family’s house where I babysat all through college and my husband seeing a commercial for a Magic Bullet for the first time. He was so excited to get one and did so shortly thereafter. That Magic Bullet treated us well for quite a few years, but once it broke and we grew our family, our experiences with blenders all went downhill. As you can see in the picture, we should have gotten a Blendtec the second that Magic Bullet diet.
I am going to have my husband double check this image later because I feel like I’m forgetting ANOTHER blender. I didn’t even include all the “food choppers” we’ve gone through over the years. I am so excited about the Blendtec. I drink at least one smoothie a day and now prepping it just got a whole lot easier! I’ve only had the Blendtec for a couple days and Adam is actually the one who has been using it (despite him not being too happy with me for buying it without talking to him about it – OOPS!). I’m going to make my first GREEN smoothie with it tomorrow and I’m trying potato soup later this week. Potato soup is the one recipe (other than smoothies) that I use my immersion blender for most.
Stay tuned for more details and recipes as we give our new Blendtec a warm welcome to the family this week! Do you have a Blendtec? If so, what is your favorite thing to make in it. If you don’t have a Blendtec, what kind of blender do you have? Do you like it?
