Blending 101

To blend or not to blend, that is the question.

Well if you don't have a blender, then that's an easy answer. But what blender do you need?

Key points we always like. Reliable, versatile and cheap. Name brands with good warranties. Blenders that can do more than just make smoothies and find one in your price range that follows the first two. BlendTec or Vitamix, those are the best of the best but not cheap.

Does a type of blender matter? Yes. If you can only blend 12oz of ingredients, safe to say it's not a good family size blender.

 Ingredient Strategy?

Yes, there is a strategy to this. For instance, if you prefer thicker smoothies, you'd use frozen ingredients. So you see those Bananas that are ripe, peel a few and freeze them.  

 How to load your Pitaya or other ingredients?

Soft ingredients first, then hard ingredients on top. Done!

 Add Liquids?

It's better to less liquid first. If your smoothie is too thick, just add a little more liquid.

What's a Pitaya Bowl?

Think of a really thick smoothie. So thick that you eat it with a spoon with granola, fresh fruit and/or honey on top... YUM! The trick to thick blends is the tamper. Because you add less liquid and more frozen ingredients, they don't mix with the blender blade easy. Using a tamper pushes the ingredients to the blade for mixing. Now only Vitamix has these available for their products, but you can easily make one yourself.
