A Smoothie Bowl and A Hamilton Wave Action Blender

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.)

    Mango/Blueberry/Oatmeal/Chia Seeds/Juice/Yogurt/Ice – yum! In a glass with a wide glass straw; I’m sorry I can’t quite see the point of putting a smoothie in a bowl, seems like inviting a big mess.
