What Colour is Your Smoothie) has inspired me to make smoothies more often, which barely work in my blender.
I tried to do chocolate almond butter with it a few weeks back & nearly killed the thing. I think a food processor might actually be what I need.
The other gadget I've been thinking about is an ice cream maker--I blame Harriet & Amber for this hankering. I hesitate on this one because I'm not sure having easy access to fresh ice cream even more often would be a good thing, given my sweet tooth.
I'm a bit torn on the gadget buying idea. I've been trying to cut down on the amount of stuff in our tiny kitchen. Yes, we do have a house, but the actual working area of our kitchen is smaller than many apartments I've lived in. If we don't need it, it has to go, because we just don't have room for a lot of stuff. I suppose if I replaced my blender with a food processor, that wouldn't be so bad.
I've never had a food processor--can anyone out there tell me if they work for making smoothies? Got any advice or recommendations for me here?
