These healthy blender recipes, for Berry Beet Smoothies and Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream, are delicious blender recipes that are incredibly easy to make. This post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Blendtec.
I've been pretty obsessed with my new Blendtec Designer 725, lately. This blender comes with so many cool features! It gives me inspirational messages, fun tips, and recipe recommendations in the digital display. How awesome is that?!! I keep playing with it to see what it will say next!
I love the preset buttons on the display. There is a button for smoothies, soup/fondue, ice cream/sorbet, juicing, soup, salsa/dressing & dips, and a self-cleaning cycle. The speed of the blender changes automatically, so there's no toggling back and forth, which makes for a more simple, user-friendly experience with professional results.
My smoothies turn out the perfect texture and I can't even tell you how much I'm in love with the healthy ice cream this thing makes!! I feel giddy experimenting with new healthy blender recipes and seeing what my Blendtec will say next. It should say, "Hey, I'll wash the dishes" because the self-cleaning setting does the work for you with some hot, soapy water and the push of a button. How's that for an easy button?!
Favorite Blendtec Features
The Wildside+ jar has cups and ounces listed very clearly, so when I pour my ingredients in I know exactly how much it will yield. The lid comes apart easily, so it's also a cinch to clean.
The Brushed Stainless base with sleek, black accents looks stylish in my kitchen. It's not an eyesore appliance that I want to hide when guests come over. I also love that it's not too tall and will fit under my cabinets when the container is stored on top, freeing up some of my cabinet space.
Built To Last
The base contains a hardened metal drive socket that never needs replacing, unlike the cheaper plastic ones. Also, the container contains a unique blunt safety blade that is easy to clean and safe to use. Not to mention, the separate Twister Jar makes the best banana ice cream!!! I haven't had a chance to use it for other recipes yet, but it is great for nut butter and thicker mixtures that require a little extra stirring while processing. The size of the jar is perfect for personal shake recipes since I make a lot of single-serving protein shakes.
