Small Blender Recipes

by nicholmom3 on August 23, 2010

I have two blenders in my kitchen, one a full size and the other a Rocket from Bella Kitchen. The small personal blender stays out on the counter top, while we bring out the full size occasionally.
My favorite use for the personal blender is making smoothies, but I also enjoy using it while cooking. I’ve chopped veggies for salsa, pureed soup, chopped onions (who likes to do THAT by hand?) and making scrambled eggs.

I’ve been getting a lot of requests for recipes, but I am a “pinch of this, dash of that” kind of cook. I do however know of a few sites that have some great recipes, so why invent the wheel? See below for a few of the sites I have gone to for ideas in the past.

My best tips for smoothies are to add uber ripe bananas to my smoothie. It gives a delicious sweetness, and adds the rich creaminess that I crave. I also recommend using frozen berries, and you can omit the ice in most cases. Anything to reduce the steps, right?

For chopping veggies, be prepared to completely ruin your first batch or two. It really is a bit of a trick to learn to pulse the veggies so as not to pulverize them. Use medium size pieces, and pulse once. Swirl the blender around, and pulse again. Continue until you feel the pieces are small enough for your needs. Granted, you are not going to get the perfect same sized pieces that you obtain with hand chopping, but these should be just fine for soups and dips.

I hope you enjoy these tips and be sure to check out the following sites for their great recipes!

Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!
