Blenders aren’t just for smoothies!

pesto 2

 

When we think ‘blenders,’ we often think ‘smoothies’ (yum!), however, our nifty little kitchen companions have lots of other uses besides whipping up yummy drinks! We use our blender a LOT, because we prefer to make our own foods rather than buying anything in jars or packets. This way we keep track of what we are putting in our bodies as well as avoiding added sugars, salts and yucky preservatives! We use our blender to make juices, smoothies, sauces, dips, smoothie bowls, healthy pancakes mixes- you name it, we’ll blend it!

 

Suz: My favourite thing to make with our blender is the ‘Lazano Costa Rican Sauce’ from our 21 Day Detox Guide (to be released VERY soon- can’t wait to share it with you!). We use a nutribullet but this can be made with any high-powered blender.
