New Blender

I bought myself a shiny new blender on the weekend. Yay, hardware. It was a toss up between the sunbeam and a model (brand forgotten) with a round vessel. This model had less wattage. Neither my brother nor I have any idea what makes a good blender. They both had 6 blades. Juice bars use square vessels. And they blend a lot of stuff. So I went with the square one. It makes good smoothies. And desserts. Here it is pictured in preparation to make a green smoothie – a vegan classic.


  • 2 bananas
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 1 cup of water (enough to thin it out a bit – might need more)

Blend! So yeah it’s green. Deal with it. Tastes like banana. Mmmm, delicious.

UPDATE: Add a tablespoon of peanut butter, makes it a bit creamier. Yes, I know this sounds weird, but you’re already drinking something green so get over it already.

UPDATE 2 (7 Nov 09): Here is a short video of me making a variant. Recently (being summer) I have taken to putting ice in as well to cool it down. Refreshing!
