Blender recipes? For the longest time, I didn't know there was such a thing.
I’ve owned a blender for years, but at first I thought it was just for making smoothies. For most of the year, mine sat at the back of a cupboard.
Then I discovered the many other things that can be made with the help of this handy appliance:
- quick meals (breakfasts, lunches and suppers)
Here are some of my favorite healthy blender recipes. They are designed for use with stationary, counter top blenders – not immersion blenders or hand mixers.

These blender desserts are so easy that you can whip up a tasty ending for your meal in a flash.

What to look for when purchasing a blender
There are a bewildering number of blenders on the market. I have just a standard, low tech kitchen blender and it works just fine with all of these blender recipes.
Here are the features I like:
- a glass container jar (rather than plastic)
Glass is easy to clean. Plastic tends to get scratched and discolored after a lot of use.
- a removable blade assembly
This too makes cleanup easy. These models have a rubber o-ring that fits between the body of the container and the base. The o-rings wear out, but are inexpensive and easy to find.
You've probably heard about the Magic Bullet Blender. It can't replace a regular blender, but it comes in handy for a variety of uses.
