Blender ice cream:
One whole, peeled, frozen banana (peel before freezing in air-tight zipper bags), 8 oz. near freezing whole milk. Put together in the blender and process until smooth and creamy. Add cocoa, or Ovaltine Chocolate malt, or add frozen berries with the bannana to change the flavor of your blender ice cream.
Look up Orange Julius. It's made in a blender.
Use your blender to crush graham crackers into crumbs for pies and such.
The blender can be used to make a bisque creamy smooth. It will also make cheese sauces very smooth.
You can use it to process meat for home made pate's or terrines.
Use it to crush ice.
Use it to make certain types of beverages. I'll let the other members of DC help you with that as I don't consume anything with alcohol.
Use it to make guacamole, or humus, or aioli, or a host of other sauces.
Use it to make pesto.
Use it to make chicken velvet, where the raw chicken meat, along with an egg, and seasonings gives you a mixture that can be formed into patties that are then fried until done through. This is a great way to make chicken for people who have trouble chewing solid meat, very tender.
And there are many more uses for this wonderful machine. Just don't use it to frighten old Uncle Ted.
