I got my new Blendtec Total Blender a few days ago, and it was worth every last penny.

The first thing I made in the blender was my 4th meal: 75g of Nitrean, 1/2 cup raw oats, 16 ounces of water and lots of ice. I threw all the stuff in the blender, put the lid on and hit the “Smoothie” button. The blender automatically speeds up and slows down to make sure everything is mixed, and then stops when it’s done. The blender only ran for about 15 seconds, and I thought “There’s no way all that ice is crushed!” There was not a single ice chip left, and the mixture was perfectly smooth and consistent. My old blender took forever to crush ice, and even then there were always a few large chunks of ice.

Just for fun, I put a bunch of ice in the blender and hit the “crush ice” button. It didn’t just crush the ice, it literally turned it into powdered snow. I’m serious, I made a snowball out of it. You can make snowcones with this machine. Check out this video:

How about turning granulated sugar into powdered sugar?

During my workouts I sip on 4 scoops of lemon Xtend in water. Wednesday I put all that in the blender along with a bunch of ice and made an awesome lemon slushy. It was great!

The blender also comes with a very nice 246-page recipe book. The book is full color, has lots of pictures and is printed on glossy pages. It’s packed with all kinds of recipes, from drinks to bread (you can make dough with this blender). There are quite a few healthy recipes, too.

For more information and lots of fun and interesting “Will it blend?” videos, check out the Will It Blend? website.

This blender has definitely earned a spot in my Favorite Things thread!
