Smoothies + Immersion Blenders



We like to make smoothies, but a while back my blender broke. So we took a smoothie sabbatical, and I figured I would eventually replace my blender.

Well, winter came and I ordered an immersion blender for soups. I discovered it totally works for sooothies. I've been using it for over a year, it's still going strong, and I feel no need to replace my big blender with all the cumbersome parts.

The Cuisinart immersion blender is super simple (3 small parts). They go in the dishwasher and I much prefer storing it to a big blender.

Did I mention it only cost $35 and comes in all kinds of fabulous colors?! It so much less expensive than all the fanciful blenders and juicers out there while still getting the job done.

The disadvantages are I usually have to make 2 batches of smoothies for our whole family, and if you overfill the mixing container it splashes over the sides. So don't overfill.


These smoothies are made of frozen strawberries, bananas, and milk.

My kids are freaks for smoothies.


If you want/need a new blender and don't want to spend a lot of money, this is the way to go! Also, these would be perfect if you don't have much kitchen storage.

  1. I got an immersion blender last winter off a used sale group. It was only $10 and it has worked perfectly for my daughter's smoothie addiction!

  2. We bought a bleeping huge blender from Costco after our cheap one died a year or so ago. Its a nice blender but sometimes it runs and doesn't work correctly which is sooooo irritating. I've always wanted an immersion blender. Can be used for so much. Thanks SB ;)

  4. I have both - a stand blender and an immersion blender. I adore them and use them for different jobs. I think my immersion blender is not as strong as it could be. When it dies, I'm going for the Cuisinart.
