We compiled a list of our favorite blender recipes / blender hacks! You will love #8! It’s our surprising little Secret and almost too easy to be true! We whipped up a batch for company and they were so impressed. You’ll be amazed at how many ways you can use a blender for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Fact: I washed and towel dried my blender at least 40 times in the making of these blender recipes (just wanted to get that off my chest. lol). P.S. The blender review and giveaway (valued at $799) at the end of this post is sponsored by Wolf Gourmet ?.

BRILLIANT Blender Recipes:

1. 4-Ingredient Scrambled Eggs: 6 eggs + 2 Tbsp milk or half and half + 1/4 tsp salt & 1/8 tsp black pepper, or season to taste = the fluffiest moist scrambled eggs ever!

2. Raspberry Syrup: Surprise your crew at breakfast with this  2-ingredient syrup. Change it up with any berry!

3. Creamy Soups: Use a blender for velvety smooth soups that taste gourmet. Try Cauliflower Soup with Shrimp or Sweet Potato Coconut Soup.

4. Perfect Crepes made Easy! How-To: put everything into the blender and whirl. Bada bing, Bada boom #Easy.

5. Thick Velvety Smoothies, like this purple one, or this green one, or this mango smoothie.

6. Salsa: our favorite (freezer friendly) salsa or Mom’s adjika come together in seconds! Or pulse some fresh salsa ingredients as a quick topping for tacos.

7. Marinades and sauces are way easy. We use a blender for our flank steak marinade and morrocan chicken:

SURPRISING WAYS TO USE A BLENDER:

8. Foamy orange juice. The secret isn’t in the brand of OJ you buy, but in the blending! Blending even an OJ from concentrate will create a rich foam at the top, making the OJ taste and look super fresh. I served it this way to company recently and they were all so surprised that all I did was put it into the blender! 😉 It’s almost too easy to be true!

9. Ground Coffee – no coffee grinder? No problem! A good blender will mill it for you. Pulse to desired consistency.

10. Puree fruit for plum or apricot fruit leather, applesauce or baby food!

Blender Review:

Our first blender (a wedding gift) was this cute little guy by Cuisinart and we used it for 7 to 8 years. He served us well and even comes with a mini little food processor. cuisinart blender


Then we upgraded to this Blendtec. We didn’t think we really needed a Blendtec until we gave it a try and we were immediately hooked on having a high powered blender. The blendtec is a beast when it comes to blending and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it if it’s more within your budget. We still have and use this one and it’s really great to have a basis for comparison besides just our cute first blender ;).

The Wolf Gourmet blender is definitely a high end blender and here’s why we LOVE it!

1. A wand fits inside the lid to help really thick mixtures process easily.

2. Quieter than our Blendtec. While Blendtec is ultra powerful, it also sounds a little bit like a construction zone when its running so we tried not to turn it on when the babies were asleep :). This one runs much quieter.

3. Its perdy! I just have a thing for that red knob and the Wolf brand in general (in a ‘stars in my eyes’ kind of way). It’s very classy and not overly industrial looking.

4. Almost double the jar capacity of our Blendtec so you can make more of anything in one batch which is really nice when you’re whirling up smoothies for the fam, blending soup, salsa, or any blender recipes really!

5. Like the Blendtec, it also has dull-to-the touch blades so it’s safer to wash by hand.
Thank you Wolf Gourmet for making a most amazing blender and for sponsoring this review and giveaway!

      Hi Kelly, it depends on the blender. A high powered blender handles it great. For nut butters, I would recommend the blendtec twister jar (for any really thick mixtures) Reply

      Hi Anna 🙂 It’s actually just any orange juice whether it’s store-bought or freshly squeezed. Whirling it up in a blender creates a rich foam that makes any orange juice taste incredibly fresh! No recipe required 🙂 Reply

      Hi Dasha! When you get to the bottom of the post under the section header “The Giveaway” there is a short paragraph and then a box that you click on that says enter the giveaway. It loads larger on desktop at the bottom. If you are still not able to see it even after refreshing your screen, can you let me know what device you’re on (if it is desktop or mobile) and what browser you are using to look at the post? Thank you so much! I am seeing it load on my cell phone and desktop computer but I want to make sure it’s working for everyone! 🙂 Reply

        It apparently does not work on Google Chrome. I tried Firefox and I can see the box now. Thanks! Reply

          Thank you so much for reporting back and letting me know. It’s working on my Chrome browser – I wonder if it has to do with the Chrome version or maybe try clearing your Chrome cookies and see if that helps? I will report it to the Rafflecopter company to let them know though so everyone is able to access it easily in the future. Thanks again!! 🙂 Reply

    Oh wow I can’t believe how useful the blender can be. I never knew that you can use it to grinned coffee. a little question can you use sugar to grind it to a sugar powder? Reply

      Hi Vick, yes, isn’t it awesome?! With a high powered blender, you can turn sugar into powdered sugar. You can even use natural or organic sugars to make powdered sugar which is awesome! 🙂 Reply

      Hi Katya, I’ve had the blender about a month or so and I’ve already used it quite a bit. I tested all of these recipes that I photographed for this post (they are all in the jar of this blender) so it’s already gotten a good amount of use 🙂 Reply
