***CONGRATULATIONS, turboterp (non-blogger)!!!***
I love an icy Mojito in the summertime! Add a sprig of fresh mint... heaven!
It might be overcast this morning but by afternoon it should be sunny and pushing 100º… Summer is in full effect, whether I like it or not. I'm not a hot weather girl, never have been. My hair frizzes, I sweat, I hate wearing shorts. Things I do love about summer? Fresh fruit, ice cream and tall, cool drinks. I hereby declare it Smoothie Season!
Hamilton Beach, one of the most trusted name in small kitchen appliances (and the title of an awesome instrumental surf rock tune by my beloved Satan's Pilgrims) has a great range of blenders that are just begging to whip up some smoothies this summer. Possibly the most handy smoothie-making contraption is the new Thermal Cooler Plus 10 Speed Blender, which features not only the standard 40 oz. glass blending jar and patented Hamilton Beach Wave~Action® system for smooth results without ice chunks, but also a 48 oz. thermal cooler that attaches directly to the blender for making icy drinks and then removed to take anywhere you need to go. The Thermal Cooler has an easy-carry handle and will keep your blended drinks cold for up to eight hours! I wish we were going to the beach but since we're landlocked here in Kansas, I think our Thermal Cooler Plus 10 Speed Blender will be used mostly for picnics in the park or at the zoo.
If you'd rather keep your smoothies to yourself, consider Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blenders. They feature one touch blending and 12-oz. individual-serving jars with convenient drink-through travel lids. The jars are dishwasher-safe and fit in most car cupholders. I think they'd be perfect for people who like frothy coffee drinks but want to save money or dieters looking to make meal replacement shakes more palatable. You can even get a Single-Serve Blender with two jars and two lids, which would be great if you're a little slow on dishwashing…
