With a family of five it would seem that making single servings of anything is not something I normally do. However, with all of our allergies/intolerances I actually make a lot of individual servings. Everyone needs something different.
So when it comes to smoothies I usually have to make one or sometimes two at a time. I always use my Vitamix. It’s easy. Plus it sits on my counter!
But I was given the opportunity to try a Hamilton Beach single serve blender recently. It’s a neat idea to have a light weight, smaller blender that can do one smoothie at a time.
I like that it’s easy to carry one handed (when I have a baby in my arms). Plus it doesn’t take up much counter or cupboard space. I also love that the top of the blender can serve as your glass. No need to pour and scrape. Just blend and drink.
On the down side it can’t handle frozen fruit – which is what I usually use to make smoothies. I let some fruit partially thaw before blending. It still took quite a few tries to pulse and then scrape down the sides before it actually started blending.
If you typically use fresh fruits and vegetables for your smoothies this would work very well! Just add your fruit, some yogurt, blend and drink. Simple.
For most of my smoothies for the family I’ll probably stick to my Vitamix because it is a lot more powerful. But during the summer when we have lots of fresh fruit I’ll definitely use the Hamilton Beach single serve blender for quick smoothies.
This would also work well for making smoothie popsicles. It makes just the right amount to fill a few popsicle molds.
I’m glad I got to try this blender. It’s fun, light weight and easy to store. Now you have a chance to try one too! Stonyfield and Hamilton Beach have teamed up to offer one of my readers a single serve blender so you can make your own smoothie creations. Enter below for your chance to win!
