A Gem of a Blender

Summer is finally upon us…. the season of healthy smoothies and (not quite so healthy but oh-so-enjoyable) frozen concoctions. Whether you prefer your fragrant summer strawberries early in the morning in your smoothie or late in the evening in your daiquiri, the KitchenAid® 5-Speed Diamond Blender is just the right tool to whip up beverages quickly and easily, as well as salad dressings, sauces, soups (gazpacho, anyone?), and so on. Have a look at the demo video when you get to the end of this post.

True to the KitchenAid® tradition of combining high performance with good looks, the Diamond Blender is a sleek machine that comes in a wide range of colors. The robust motor, unique one-piece, BPA-free pitcher, high-quality stainless steel blades and electronic controls combine to create a powerful vortex from which nothing escapes: all ingredients blend together quickly and efficiently, whether stirred, chopped, mixed, pureed or liquified. And the crush ice feature makes short work of your ice cubes for those frozen concoctions.

The Diamond Blender promises 20-second smoothies, and if you buy a Diamond blender (at its surprisingly reasonable price) between now and the end of July 2014, you’ll get a free copy of The Smoothies Bible by Pat Crocker.

We found the following recipe by Maria and Josh Lichty of Two Peas & Their Pod.

Happy yummy summer sipping!

Watermelon Lemon Coconut Drink
6 cups, seedless watermelon, cut into 1-inch chunks
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened lite coconut milk
1 tablespoon freshly chopped mint, or more to taste

Place all ingredients except mint in your Diamond blender and puree until incorporated. Chop the mint into small pieces and stir into the watermelon drink. Remove the pitcher from the base and place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes. Stir before serving.

    Love the watermelon, lemon, and coconut; not so much
    the mint. Still sounds yummy.

    Will sure take the stress out of making a smoothie with my current blender

  5. Ted Margrett says:

    My favourite, which I served to many of my students in China, consists of carrots, celery and apple. Once blended chill for fifteen minutes and serve. Since returning to Canada, the same combination is mixed with kale, grinded flax seed, hemp hearts, protein powder and star of anise powder. A knockout drink to empower any time and for all occasions.

    I love Coconut Water, Yogurt, blueberries, banana, Spinach and strawberries.

    I love blueberries, yogart, shake mix, strawberries and orange juice w/pulp everyday for lunch
