When you have a great blender, nothing else really matters. I mean, if you are a smoothie-junkie or any kind of kitchen guru, a supreme blender is a must. Don’t waste your money on the cheap ones you can find in the clearance rack or the off-brand kind; you are getting what you paid for.

With a blender, getting one that can chop, puree, cream, and of course, blend to perfection is a must. It should have great speed, be able to cut through loads of ice, and have different settings that can gently make salsa from fresh ingredients to making homemade almond milk. Here are some unique ways to use a blender. 

Up Your Blender Game

Scrambled Eggs

Nearly everyone likes a good batch of scrambled eggs or a filled omelet. While whisking the eggs is not all that hard to do, getting the right amount of air in them to make the eggs incredible fluffy takes talent. However, if you throw the eggs in a blender and pulse them a few times, you will get the fluffiest eggs ever.

If you are a fan of veggies in your omelets, you can throw a few peppers, onions, and whatever else you like, in the blender with your eggs and have an insta-omelet ready to pour out into your skillet. There is no need to generously dice up the vegetables when you have a great kitchen blender. Just be sure not to over blend the mixture. You will end up with colored scrambled eggs instead of lightly chopped vegetables in your eggs.

Homemade Tomato Sauce

Have you ever wondered how people can make such smooth tomato sauce from plum tomatoes? With a great blender, of course!

A great blender can help you thoroughly break down tomatoes, as well as onions, garlic, and anything else you add to your sauce. It can help ensure that the added flavors are equally dispersed among the tomatoes and help speed up the cooking time. In addition, you won’t have to worry about removing the skins of the tomatoes before pureeing, because the blender will pulverize them for you. You can read more here at BlenderAuthority.com .

Expedite Your Compost for Gardening

Do you always think about starting a compost pile when you are getting your gardens ready for the season? By this point, it is too late to be beneficial for this year and you end up putting it off, only to not get to it in time again next year. 

One fast way to get a compost pile started is to expedite the process. If you take all your kitchen scraps and add them to your blender you can pulse everything together quickly. This will take what can happen naturally, in weeks, and make it happen in a day.

Items that can be composted are:

  • Eggshells
  • Coffee grounds
  • Vegetable peels
  • Old pasta
  • Leftover salad greens
  • Tea bags
  • Freezer burned vegetables
  • Junk mail
  • Fruit Rinds
  • And over 150 other items

Peanut Butter and Almond Milk

If you like to know what is in your food and beverages, making your own is a great idea. Peanut butter, or any nut butter, and almond milk are two items that you can make at home with a great blender. Just put the nuts in your blender and pulverize until you get the outcome you desire.


Smoothies, of course, are awesome if they are made in a powerful blender. Even if you add greens to your smoothie, you can pulverize them into a smooth, liquid-like end-product.

If you like frozen fruits in your smoothies, a good blender can cut through them flawlessly, leaving you with a thick, cold smoothie.

You can do so many awesome things with a great blender. From making your own almond milk to speeding up a compost pile, a great blender can make your life easier.
