For the last few months, I’ve spent quite a bit of time drooling over blenders and juicers. Website after website, sparkly machine after sparkly machine. Imagine my surprise when The Fairy Hobmother reached across the pond to tell me about Appliance Online. Seriously, the world works in mysterious ways. Like I needed another resource to check out!
I’ve been making lots of smoothies – like this delicious one with Kale – and I’m concerned that our three-bladed blender is going to give out. This morning I asked The Texan if we had a back up. He says there is another in the basement. Hmm…I wonder if that one has four blades. Like they all should.
The Vitamix looks like an amazing machine; have you seen one? They remind me of the blenders that we used way, way back when I was bartending. It seems that everyone who has one of those loves it to pieces. I saw photos of a few smoothies that came out of that machine, holy cow! Impressive!
After making smoothies every day for the last two weeks and researching juicers, I don’t know that I actually need one. While juicers seem great for juicing, I love the texture of smoothies. They’re like milkshakes without the guilt. Can a juicer make juice into a shake-like texture?
What type of blenders and juicers do you use?
