In this article we will teach you what all you can do with a blender. By using the right ingredients in your blender you can significantly improve the quality of your life (in terms of health and time).
A blender for your health – what can you do with it all?
In general, we can say that smoothies are very healthy for you, provided of course you use the right ingredients. So no balls of vanilla ice cream and chocolate milk, but fresh natural ingredients. A smoothie that helps you get enough fruits and vegetables in daily are green smoothies. The principle of green smoothies is that you mix fruits and leafy vegetables in the blender. Here you can then add some additives (such as fresh polder honey, goji berries and a pinch of cinnamon). Are you looking for the best types that you can use? Then we recommend you the Vitamix 750 Vs 750 to find the perfect blender for this type of work.
As you will probably expect due to the vegetables and fruits, green smoothies are very good for your health. Among other things, it will give you more energy, you will lose fat and it has a positive effect to reduce allergic reactions. Another healthy smoothie is red fruit based. Red fruit, besides being very tasty, is very healthy. Research has shown that red fruit reduces wrinkles and that red fruit can repair damage to the skin caused by sunburn.
Below I have two smoothie recipes, ééone based on green smoothies and the other based on red fruit.
Green smoothie recipe:
- 3 or 4 kiwi’s (possibly with peel for even more vitamins)
- 1 banana
- 2 full hands of fresh leaf spinach
- 2 glasses of water
Smoothie recipe with red fruit:
- 3 full hands of red fruit (or a box of red frozen fruit)
- 2 Bananas
- 1 small hand of arugula lettuce
- 5 leaves of fresh endive
- 2 glasses of water
A blender makes for more time
In the morning you are often very rushed and you do not have time (or inclination) to butter sandwiches and a glass of orange juice (freshly squeezed he) to pour. By making a smoothie, you’ll save time and certainly the next day.
What else can you do with a blender?
In addition to making lots of green smoothies, you can do a lot more with your blender. Think about pureeing a soup, making sauces and to puree your homemade baby snacks. In some (more powerful) blenders you can also crush ice cubes for your delicious cocktail.
