Right now we are smoothie bowl CRAZY over here in Jolly Tomato land…and our road to smoothie heaven has been much smoother (see what we did there?) thanks to the new Hamilton Beach Wave Action blender. We’ve enjoyed different combinations every day – and we’ve been thrilled with how well the blender smooth-ifies everything without frozen chunks getting stuck.
The Wave Action blender does such a good job because instead of just spinning the content around the walls of the blender, it forces the mixture down into the blades. When you watch it humming away, you can see all of your fruits and milks diving from the top straight down into the blades and getting pureed into perfect little smithereens. (The yellow arrow shows you how things move through the blender.)
We were thrilled when Hamilton Beach gave us the opportunity to try out a Wave Action blender, and give one away to our readers as well. But first – you’re going to want to know how to make a perfect smoothie bowl:
