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 our new Hamilton Beach Wave Action blender. Each day, we’ve enjoyed different combinations – 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. (For example, see how the yellow arrow below shows you how things move through the blender.)
Want to give it a try? Here’s a recipe for a great smoothie bowl:
Basic Smoothie Bowl Recipe
- 1 cup milk or almond milk or soy milk
- 1 cup yogurt
- 2 cups frozen fruit berries, bananas, mango, pineapple, etc.
- 1 cup leafy greens optional
- Toppings optional; choose your favorite:
- Fresh fruit
- Chia seeds
- Hemp seeds
Place all ingredients in a blender. Puree until smooth. Add toppings if desired.
Editor’s note: The blender giveaway has ended.
Even better, you can change it up however you like. Got a favorite fruit? Got a favorite veggie? Add it in there! And even if it’s frozen, it’ll still smooth out nicely.
