This crazy summer heatwave coupled with my lack of wanting to cook creates the perfect opportunity to use a classic kitchen appliance: a blender. But we’re not talking about that generic Oster blender that comes accompanied with your hotel room, I’m talking about the life-changing magic of a high powered blender. The possibilities are absolutely endless with this handy tool.

Smoothies

While smoothies might be the most obvious thing to whip up in a blender, having one backed with high-power really makes a huge difference. I have religiously been drinking smoothies for breakfast for years, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. My typical recipe includes a load of greens (either kale, spinach, or a mix is fine), a frozen banana (this is the key to getting a super creamy and thick consistency), vegan protein powder, and a frozen fruit of choice like blueberries. If you’re using greens, be sure to blend them first and then incorporate your other ingredients. Making smoothies using a high-power blender is a life changer- its smoothness and ease is absolutely incomparable. 

Coffee

Coffee in a blender? Yes. This cashew coffee recipe will change your morning routine, and is sure to convert the most adamant haters of the early hours. Simply combine raw cashews, a dash of maple syrup, vanilla, a pinch of salt, and of course, freshly-brewed coffee. Blend on high for just under a minute. When done, you’ll have the most frothy, creamy, and delicious morning coffee drink you ever did taste. I love to add hemp seeds and cinnamon if I’m feeling a bit extra. 

Nut Butters

Blending up your favorite nut butter has never been easier when using a high-powered blender. Roast up either almonds, cashews, peanuts, or hazelnuts. Add and blend on high-speed for about 5 minutes. Before you know it, you’ll have a deliciously smooth and indulgent homemade butter that’s better than the store-bought stuff. 

Non-Dairy Milks

Similarly to nut-butters, there is a great deal of non-dairy alternatives to make right at home with your appliance. Be sure to research a recipe before you take on blending your own milk at home because some instructions require that you soak the nuts or seeds in water overnight. My personal favorite is cashew milk because it does not require any additional straining as do most other non-dairy milks. Downshiftology has a great cashew milk recipe that is delicious on its own or in your favorite cereal or coffee.
