Hi, you guys! Just a quick FYI, Christmas is about to happen. We have 8 days left.

Now we can discuss my youth.

Once upon a time I was in my 20s, living it up in my own downtown apartment and eating brownies for dinner. Or green smoothies. That decision depended on the scale’s numbers.

Fast forward to the day that I had to give up my apartment because I kinda got married and had to live with a boy. (<— Monica Gellar). In the ‘burbs…

I had to sublet my apartment asap and could not find anyone that wanted to take over the large rent… UNTIL!
Until one day this girl walked into my apartment, looked around, went into the kitchen, came out and said, “I’ll take it.”.

“YEEEESSSSS!”, I screamed inside.

“BUT!”, she said. “BUT, under one condition. You have to leave the Blendtec”.

Say what the what?!?

“That’s the only way I’ll take the apartment”, she said.
I thought, “Smart girl”.
As much as I didn’t want to, I uttered the word, “Deal.”, and that was the end of me and my Blendtec, Bertha the Powerful.

It was years before I finally got to hang out with a Blendtec blender again.

And man, has Blendtec upgraded since then!! WOW.

 

Blendtec Designer 725

This is the Blendtec Designer 725. It is a beast!

My favorite Feta Cheese and Avocado Hummus Dip blended in seconds. This Beer and Cheddar Cheese Soup blended in a flash.
I blinked and my Light and Creamy Avocado-Lime Salad Dressing was DONE!

At first, though, I was wowed by its sleek appearance. The stainless steel finish is gorgeous and the illuminated touchscreen is my favorite! It sends you cute messages, too.
Such as this morning’s message; “This is your 1,334,225 smoothie!”  😉

There are six pre-programmed cycles for juice, smoothies, soups, salsas, ice cream and cleaning. When ready to blend, you just add all the ingredients into the jar, press the icon that corresponds to the food you are preparing and the blender does the rest. It also shuts off automatically.
Basically, you can just go on about your business while the Blendtec is preparing your breakfast smoothie.

Bonus? It’s soooo easy to clean. In fact, the wide container fits easily in my dishwasher. Another bonus. Blendtec’s blender has a dull blade, so even if you’re washing it by hand, you’ll never cut yourself.

AND! The Blendtec blender technology is intuitive and the Designer 725 blender can sense that there is a problem with your blend, such as over-heating, loading errors, or air pockets. Once detected, it instructs you how to go about fixing those problems to achieve the best results with your food.

I’m so impressed – can you tell? 😀

What’s more impressive is that the awesome people at Blendtec are giving me one Blendtec Blender to give to you!! YAY! Merry Christmas!

    I can’t believe it, an appliance that tells you what’s wrong and how to fix it! It sure beats the poorly groomed man in jeans that don’t cover his backside adequately who comes to tell me what’s wrong with the dishwasher!

  2. Becky

    Thinking about this as a make ahead & reheat soup for my Christmas Day feast. How does it hold up refrigerated & then reheated a couple days later? It looks great & I’m thinking if it doesn’t pan out for Christmas, I could thicken it up a little more & have a creamy dip for fresh pretzel bread. Mmm

    1. HI Becky! Yes, 2 days in the fridge should be fine. That’s about how long I keep it for before it’s all gone.
      And now I’m thinking about your creamy dip/pretzel bread idea! YUUUM! That sounds way better than any soup of ever. haha 😉

  3. Gretchen

    I made the soup and even though it had great flavor, it wasn’t very thick. I followed the steps but it was more like a drink. I wonder where I went wrong?

    1. Hi Gretchen!

      The soup should have thickened, especially with the 1/3 cup flour in there, but I honestly have no idea why it didn’t. Did you by chance blend it for too long? Or used more beer than the suggested amount? 😉

  4. Jeffrey

    This looks awesome, can’t go wrong with beer and cheese!
    I get your email updates at jefflammers at rocketmail dot com.
