You guys will probably tell me to fuck off, but I'll try.
Anyone have good blender recipes?
I'm going to use whey and greek yogurt but don't know what to add and what kind of flavors to go with.
pic related is my breakfast from this morning
>handful of blueberries
>200ml clouded applejuice
Besides the looks it's very convenient as well, I couldn't be bothered to wash up my blender everytime but with this system you just switch out the blade top for a lid and you're done.
>Surely there's more you can do with a blender than make smoothies?
Of course. There's tons of uses:
-making pureed soups such as bisques
-crushing grain for homemade flour
-homemade peanut (or other nut) "butters"
-making compound butter
-Any number of various salsas and sauces
-crushing dried spices, chili peppers, garlic, etc.
-Filling for dumplings/gyoza
...the better ones can even do a good job at making ground/minced meat: drop a steak or chop into a Blendtec, pulse for a few seconds and you have awesome burger meat.
IMHO a good blender is a very useful kitchen tool.
>Handful of kale
>Half that amount of baby spinach
>Honey for sweetness
>Optional: greek yoghurt, ginger, a small amount of LSA/Flax seeds
I'm no nutritionfag or anything but that's my breakfast these days.
>I feel that peanut butter would include too many calories in a shake.
There's a huge difference between the peanut butter you can buy in grocery stores and natural/organic peanut butter that's basically just blended up peanuts (though if you have a blender you could literally make that yourself for cheaper).
You can google the positive weightloss/health/filling effects of that kind of PB but just remember to stick to you serving sizes when cutting.
I actually just ran out of whey (vanilla) and don't know what flavour to order.
I'm sick of vanilla and chocolate feels like it has too limited uses (although a chocolate banana shake sounds tempting).
What do you guys use?
I buy the unflavored stuff, that way it can be used with pretty much anything. Want vanilla flavor? Add some vanilla extract. Want chocolate flavor? Add cocoa powder. Want strawberry? Add some strawberries. You get the idea.
Refurbished Blendtec. Comes with a several-year warranty and is much more useful than the nutribullet. The bullet works well but the problem is that it has a tiny little container which greatly limits its usefulness. It's good for single-serving drinks but sucks for pretty much anything else because it's container is so small. Get a proper blender instead of a "smoothie specialty machine" so you can use it for other things than just drinks.
OP here, still haven't made a single smoothie. I read the instruction booklet and realized that cleaning the blender takes more time than the smoothie itself. I'm going to return the blender and buy something like this >>7250330 instead.
