Blender

Recommended Posts

My boyfriend bought me a blender yesterday :) It was supposed to be a surprise, but he forgot that Kmart sends me e-receipts in the mail...imagine my horror when it thanks me for shopping there when I was nowhere near the store! Lol.

 

Anyway, I believe it's a Hamilton Beach, and he told me it's 700 watt. He just asked me to ask you guys if that strength is fine for most recipes...I really don't know myself, but I am assuming it's fine. I definitely want to make almond milk, and probably fruit smoothies at some point. MAYBE my own nut butters, but that might call for a food processor or something stronger.

How nice to have a blender now! That type of blender should be sufficient for nut milks and fruit smoothies.

 

I make nut butters in my Vitamix, which is 1380 watts. When I owned an Oster, which is 500 watts, I wasn't able to make any nut butters in it.

I know. He's really sweet. I guess they had it for a good deal at Kmart and he figured he'd grab it. Now I have my spiralizer and a blender! :)

 

Oh wow...yeah I don't think I'll try to make nut butters in this one. I'll try to keep it lighter. I don't really need to make my own nut butters...I love the S&S brand...the only ingredient is almonds, so that works. I'll probably look into other blender recipes as well for more ideas.
