I Love My Blender!

I do. I love my blender! I love it because I can make all sorts of cool treats with it...that cost me a lOT less than they do if I buy them out (except for that new MacDonald's Smoothie which is very reasonably priced..and quite good, I must say...kudos to MacDonald's..for a change)! Anyway, back to my blender. I love tossing in all sorts of ingredients and coming up with new yummy concoctions...yogurt, banana, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries...peaches are good..just add a little of the peach juice with them, maybe some white grape/raspberry juice.from the fridge...and don't forget the ice! You have to add ice and set your blinder to the grind mode! This is what gives your smoothie it's delicious coolness! And unlike when you purchase your smoothie out (did you ever notice how expensive they are at the mall?) you know EXACTLY what's going in yours! It's healthy AND refreshing!

Of course, I make other things besides smoothies with my blender. I also like to make what I call a "Cheater's Milkshake." No, not sex-like cheating. I mean cheating because I have no actual ice-cream in the house! I just use milk, sugar, some vanilla extract, and ice..and VOILA..it actually tastes like there's REAL ice-cream in there (less calories, too)! You can also make a chocoloate "milkshake" if you have chocolate milk around. Just add that ice, press grind and then whip, and VOILA, AGAIN! Now frozen Margaritas and Pina Coladas are another good use for that blender.....

Thanks for the tip! That sounds really yummy! Actually, I do love mangos. And the lemon yogurt..sort of different. I like that! I guess I'm not the only one who loves their blender!
