My husband and I received a really nice blender as a wedding gift this summer! I'm so excited to now have a blender but I need some ideas/recipes to use it! I'm really not interested in blending any alcoholic, frozen drinks right now. I'm looking more for meal or smoothie drink ideas. So give me your ideas!!

A blender is a great addition to the kitchen. I think what most people use the blend er for is smoothies and juice drinks. Have you heard of fruits overpowering the taste of vegetables. When making fruit drinks, you can also add some vegetables to get your daily needed amounts. I think some powerful blenders can blend cake mixes and even ground coffee beans. I hope you make lots of delicious and nutritious food with your new blender.

I never thought of adding veggies into a fruit smoothie! Great idea!! So, do you make fruit smoothies/drinks? If so, what ingredients do you use?

Hi, I just go to the market and see what is cheap that week and pick the fruits and vegetables like that. It usually tastes good but I don't keep any recipes. Just try different fruits and see what you like.

Do you just throw the fruit in the blender? Or do you add any other ingredients/liquids?
