I don't have a picture, because we've already drunk up the results, but we just christened our new Blendtec with strawberry smoothies. It was a little rough -- rather scary sounding, wanted to turn it off but it was runing an automatic cycle so we didn't dare, but wonderful results.

A's recipe:

8-oz carton strawberry yogurt
1/4 cup milk
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 banana

This made three servings, blended twice on "Smoothie" setting because the frozen strawberries didn't break down the first time through.

Amazing stuff. Yum.

Now the kid is experimenting with oranges and crushed ice, with an eye toward sorbet... (2 small oranges, 1 tsp agave, 1-1/2 cups ice)

I'd like her to read the recipe book just for some ideas on how to use the settings, but she's actually doing pretty well on her own, copying what the demo guy at Costco did. (We had already ordered this blender when we saw the demo, but stopped to watch, excited that we'd get to see the new blender, ordered sight-unseen, in action.)


  1. Oh, we love fresh fruit smoothies around here! Sometimes, we add a little vanilla and yogurt, too. Yum!

    I've got my spot secured, following you via NetworkedBlogs. I can also keep up with you as you write for Homeschool Mosaics, (now there's a sweet group!)

    Continued Blessings for every future adventure,
