Me, Wendell and Landon chipped in and got ourselves this year's birthday present to each other.  Good idea, yah!


It was choke expensive . . . $500.  But so far, we've been putting it to good use.  And it works great. You just put the dial to what you want, push down the switch and it'll turn off by itself.

Landon's been leaning towards the strawberry/banana smoothies. 

I call this an orange dreamsicle.

I'm still kinda tweaking the recipe, but for now it's 1 orange, 2 tbs. orange juice concentrate, 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract, 1/4 c. yogurt and around 8 ice cubes.  Yummy!!


Dd said... soup ??

Yah, Didi. We haven't tried that feature yet, but it makes and heats soup.

With this heat/humidity, those healthy smoothies will be just the thing to cool down with.

Erick said...

Wow, like one too.

J: cool stuff and sumthin' y'all can make good use of - very wise. In my old blender I would make banana smoothies: frozen banana, OJ, apple juice, whatever flavor yougart I was in the da mood for, bit of sweetner (cuz I no use sugah), and the ice. Yum yum. I was addicted a while to Jamba Juice and at $4+ a pop was getting expensive. It's really refreshing and to me more genuine than JJ. Where'd you get this blender from and let us know what kine soup you guyz going make! -N

Sounds delish! I am also blown away by this hot soup feature...please try it and show us!

Susan said...

Whoa, no kidding, that is expensive. But I think it's so worth it. Ours was $400. The lady at the store made a smoothie, ice cream, and a yummy Mexican soup. We were sold. We don't get to use it as much as we want but it's a keeper!

jalna said...

We pretty much use it daily, Celia.

I think your Ninja good enough for you, Erick.

Really yah, Mich!

We got it from Costco, N.

I'll let you know when Wendell makes the soup, Jenny!

Susan, Wendell kept talking about it after he saw the demonstration so we decided to get it. We use it a lot so you're right . . . it's a keeper!

Very nice Jalna.....

On a funny note. I was in the Salvation Army the other day.

They actually had a hand crank blender! And it was only $5 bucks!...LOL! Used of course.

I have never seen anything like that in my life! I was cracking up!

Works great during Hurricanes I'm sure!......hehe

Kind of like a crank up radio! And a crank up flashlight! ; )

I'm having so much fun laughing at the stuff I see! I need to bring my camera!

jalna said...

That's funny, Mark! Never saw a hand-crank blender . . . even at the swap meet.

I love vitamix! We use it pretty much everyday.

jalna said...

We've been using it a lot too, Akemi.
