In a good stick blender, hand blender, wand blender, or what some celebrity chefs call it – a boat motor.
This is this one handy kitchen tool. We had an older one in our appliance collection that was part of Grenville’s contribution when we combined household goods over a decade ago. This past fall I “discovered” it when pureeing butternut squash soup. It was made Braun® and is shown on the left and we still have it.
But THIS week, we upgraded to a Kitchen Aid ® immersion blender. Yes, here at the F&P we have brand loyalty as far as some kitchen stuff goes – the blender, food processor, stand mixer, hand mixer are ALL Kitchen Aid and the coffee pot too. We’ve never had a problem with KA ever received a new coffee maker when there was a product recall. So, do we stick by this product line – YOU BET!
Remember that yard sale a couple of weekends ago? Some of the dollars (and there weren’t many) went for this NEW unit. This week we used is to make smoothies on mornings when Grenville can't decide what he wants for breakfast. We just gather whatever fruit is around – blueberries, strawberries, bananas – add some milk, sugar (or honey), vanilla, a couple of ice cubes and blend away.
Next week we’ll add yogurt because a friend told me it makes thicker smoothies. (It’s already on the shopping list.)
Here’s the blueberry – strawberry smoothies we enjoyed this morning.
