Making Cranberry, Banana, and Honey Smoothies In A Blender

2008-10-23 06:20

My blender broke the other morning as I was making a smoothie, and I couldn't be happier.

I bought the Black and Decker model last fall for $60 in part because it had an "ice crusher" button, which, in reality, merely "chipped" the ice. So for the last year, I have been drinking rather clumpy smoothies.

As my eyes glazed over the 20 or so blenders available at a local Walmart, I resisted my usual decision making process of reading every word on every single box and simple went with a GE model since I currently like my GE stove. And whadda ya know -- it's wonderful!

Here's what I like about this GE Digital Blender:

It's lightweight and easy to clean.
It has a button just for drinks. You hit it, and the blender does its thing for 50 seconds, slowing down and speeding up, until it creates the most frothy, luscious smoothie you've ever seen. And it positively disintegrates the ice, even though it doesn't have an ice crusher feature.
It has a 600 power motor, which means it should be more durable.

Since I drink smoothies year round, I like to experiment with seasonal flavors. My current favorite is a Cranberry, Banana, and Honey Smoothie. Cranberries are a true super food. 1/4 cup of fresh cranberries contains only about 12 calories. Yet, they're high in vitamin C and fiber and contain health-promoting antioxidants and other phytonutrients that may help protect against heart disease and cancer.

This Cranberry, Banana, and Honey Smoothie strikes just the right balance between tart and sweet and is the pick-me-up you need on a sluggish morning. Made with soy milk or skim milk, it's also a great way to boost your calcium intake without adding lots of fat and calories.

GE blender broke down after one use. Walmart replaced it but broke down after two uses. Going back to Walmart yet again but not to replace the GE Digital blender.
