A stick blender is one of the most valuable electric
appliance you can add to your kitchen. I'm sure there are many great brands,
but I've always found the Braun blender to be the best. It also comes with
a GREAT small food chopper/processor, wonderful for herbs, garlic, additions to
salads, pureeing small amounts and more. Another attachment sometimes available
is a tiny beater, great for whipping one egg or a small pkg. of instant pudding.
It rinses clean in a moment, saving the extra work involved in cleaning a regular
blender container and lid. Here's one quick use.
1 small banana or half a large one
Place all ingredients except ice cubes in a very large
glass or tumbler, or in a blender container. Use a stick blender or regular
blender to thoroughly liquefy and blend. Add enough ice cubes to nearly fill
the glass, leaving enough room for the blender, and process until ice in completely
pulverized. Add straw and enjoy.
large handful of berries, a sliced ripe peach or apricot or mango, a chunk of papaya
or other fruit
about 1/2 cup of fat-free or low-fat yogurt
a little skim milk
sweetener - your choice
few drops of fruit extract - either the same kind or a complementary one
powdered vitamin, protein or soy supplement
