I enjoy making new recipes for my family but sometimes I find I just don’t have the right equipment. Blendtec has made my life easier by sending me a Blendtec Designer Series WildSide blender! This is an amazing machine. I have been using it two to three times a day for a few weeks and I’ve never had a problem. It easily blends frozen fruit and veggies as well as any fruit, vegetables and ice I put in there.

The happy accident of having the Blendtec is weight loss! I have been making myself fruit and vegetables smoothies for breakfast and lunch every day over the last two weeks, and I have lost 7 lbs! Here are some examples of the smoothies I make. The green smoothie has frozen kale, a fresh pear, a kiwi, cucumber and water.

Don’t you love the vibrant green colour? And it tasted amazing too. The pink smoothie has frozen strawberries, frozen power berries mixed with some orange juice and milk for a sweet and filling smoothie when you’re battling the sweet tooth.

Forty seconds later, I have the delicious pink smoothie on the left. Smoothies are just one of many things this blender can do. It has settings for

I altered one of the ice cream recipes from the cook book and made some strawberry ice cream. It was just half and half cream, agave nectar and frozen strawberries, and it is delicious!
