Blenders have become the bane of my existence! There is nothing more frustrating that trying to whip up a Mocktail or smoothie only to have the ice caught in the blade of a blender. Usually I have to unplug the thing and begin prying the ice out to get things moving. It’s definitely a first world problem but one that could easily raise my blood pressure far too high. KitchenAid recently tasked me with testing out the new KitchenAid Diamond Blender and I was amazed to see that I just couldn’t jam this sucker up!
As of today I’ve made 3 smoothie recipes, 2 Mocktails and many purees using ice and not once did it jam. This is a gorgeous machine and it performs wonderfully!
Recipes Made with KitchenAid Diamond Blender
Last week I shared two recipes 20 second smoothie recipes with you which I made using the KitchenAid Diamond Blender. The first was the Energy Boost Smoothie which was in the recipe card which came with my blender. It is a gorgeous blend of fruits to fuel you up!
The second is the Good for You Green Smoothie, this recipe also came with the blender and I must admit I wish I’d tried a green smoothie sooner because it’s delicious!
Today I’m happy to share yet another recipe which I made using the diamond blender, I know you’ll all appreciate the fact that it only takes 20 seconds to make and it’s oh-so delicious!
Berry Smoothie Recipe
- 1/3 cup blackberries
- 1/3 cup raspberries
- 1/3 cup strawberries
- 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1 cup of water
Toss all of your ingredients in, turn it on for 20 seconds and it’s ready. That easy; no prying ice out of a blade or any fuss.
