My New Blender

Blendtec Home Total Blender

Blendtec Home Total Blender

It took a bit longer than I had hoped to arrive (such is the life when dealing with APO system), but my Blendtec Home Total Blender was waiting for us at the post office last night. Unpacking and assembling it was easy, since it just has 4 parts: the base, the jar, the lid, and the lid cap. After brushing off a few styrofoam bits left from the packaging, I plugged it in and was ready to blend. Unfortunately, I didn’t have all that many ingredients around, but I rustled up a mango, a banana, and some frozen strawberries left over from last summer. With a cup or so of milk and a press of the smootie button, we had our first smoothies. Sorry, I didn’t think to take a picture, but I’m sure you can figure out what they looked like. They were pretty good for no planning, and I look forward to heading to the grocery store today to get a nice selection of fruit and veggies to make some more smoothies.

Next up? I’ll peruse the extensive recipe book that came with the blender and try some stuff out. I’m thinking about a soup for dinner tomorrow and perhaps some carrot and/or other vegetable juice for a snack.
