Did I mention I’m in love with an immersion blender?

Just wanted to leave some comments about the following post!

After Gregarious Greens was given an immersion blender as a gift, I decided to get one myself! And so here’s my update: It’s amazing!!

I’ve used the small food processor attachment to make sauces, marinades and chop things for veg burgers. Today I used the measuring cup and blending wand, sceptically I might add, to make smoothies  and was very pleasantly surprised and impressed. I thought for sure my kitchen was going to end up with smoothie plastered everywhere- I mean, its an open cup and a spinning blade on a stick! So, I cleared the space, held my breath and hit the button! In a matter of seconds I had a delicious smoothie and a still clean kitchen 😉  … I think the vent cuts on the end of the wand make it act as a sort of vacuum and it works so well!

I’m a bit of a no fuss person in the kitchen so I’ve actually substituted this immersion blender for a blender and food processor! You may still find you need those two other things, but so far this has been doing the trick for me.

And… just in case you were curious, today’s smoothie had:   1/2 ripe avocado, 1/2 frozen banana, few tablespoons of yogurt, almond milk as needed, nutmeg and 2 pitted dates.

Immersion Blender

Hey folks, sorry for the long no posting period. We went through moves to new houses and have been settling. We are hoping to have new posts on a more regular basis.

During this period I celebrated my birthday. One of the wonderful gifts that I received was an immersion blender. I have used it a few times now and I love it.

The main use that I have for it is for soup. If you look back at some of the soup posts on the blog you will notice that I mention pulsing the broth in a blender or food processor until smooth. This is great, but it can be hard to blend everything in the pot and creates quite the mess. Well no more! I simply place the immersion blender into the soup broth, pulse for 30 seconds and I have a smooth broth with little to no mess. I don’t have to clean the food processor or blender containers anymore! Immersion blenders run a range of prices but I am led to believe that the one that I received was well priced and it works great for me.

I got a cuisinart immersion blender. It also comes with a few other attachments such as a whisk and a mini food processor for quickly chopping small batches of veg that I have yet to use.

Do you have an immersion blender or thoughts on them? Let us know in the comments below.
