Looking to satisfy those sweet cravings or kick-start a healthy lifestyle that's maintainable and personalized to your taste? Stop settling for mediocre, vending machine drinks and snacks and take the first important step toward a healthy lifestyle with the Hamilton Beach Smoothie Smart Blender. Your body will be glad you did.
Designed to blend the perfect fruit or vegetable smoothie, the Smoothie Smart Blender delivers on the blending and ice-crushing power people want most, instead of skimping on performance. And unlike other blenders with confusing buttons that keep you guessing, this blender's one-touch functionality keeps things simple. You simply press the Smoothie button and walk away. The blender's unique, 45-second smoothie cycle handles the rest. The patented Wave-Action system is designed to pull the ingredients down into the stainless steel blades for smooth results without ice chunks – no stirring needed. For easy cleanup afterwards, any mess on its smooth, metal touchpad is quickly wiped away and its cord stores neatly out of sight.
All things considered – for a blender that boasts no guesswork, stirring or mess – you'll wonder why you ever settled for fast-food snacks and chunky smoothies in the first place.
Tired of boring smoothies or frozen drinks that taste like they came from a slushy machine or pre-packaged cocktail mix? Invest in a reliable blending machine that yields great-tasting, smooth drinks every time you blend. With the Smoothie Smart Blender, making an enviously perfect smoothie is as simple as adding ingredients to the jar, pushing the SMOOTHIE button and walking away. That's right, there's no need to stop and watch or "shake and stir" mid-way through blending. The Smoothie Smart Blender's 45-second SMOOTHIE cycle is programmed to combine the right number of pulses and speeds to yield perfectly smooth drinks.
Mixing up your blending routine with alternative blender drinks like milkshakes, icy drinks or frozen cocktails can be the perfect way to get more use out of your blender, personalize your recipes and try out restaurant-style cocktails at a fraction of the price. Offering five blending options, SMOOTHIE, ICE CRUSH, HI, MED, LO and PULSE, the Smoothie Smart Blender crushes ice efficiently and lets you add a wide variety of ingredients to create your own delicious drink concoctions.
To make a milkshake, simply add milk and ice cream to the jar and mix on LO speed for 5 to 10 seconds. To create frozen drinks, be sure to add liquids first, then ice cubes. Press the ICE CRUSH button to automatically activate the high-speed pulsing action. Once ice is crushed, press HI to blend the drink and press STOP when your frozen drink is finished.
The ability to crush ice quickly and get smooth drinks every time is a big factor in deciding whether to order one from a restaurant or blend your own at home. Luckily, the Smoothie Smart Blender isn't your average blender. It doesn't cut corners when it comes to whipping up perfect, chunk-free drinks in minimal time. The heavy-duty crushing power of the Ice Sabre blades was tested by crushing two tons of ice. The durable motor is life-tested to blend 8,000 frozen drinks. Think an average blender or refrigerator door can spit out finely crushed ice as well as this blender? Think again.
Functioning as a multi-purpose blender, the Smoothie Smart Blender is more than just a perfect smoothie maker. It's also great for blending hot liquids, puréeing vegetables into soups and making homemade salsa. What's more, the clear 40-oz. glass jar gives you visibility over what ingredients are going into the jar and watch how they're being blended, so you can control your blending action.
To blend hot liquids, add liquids to the jar first, then solid ingredients. Start blending at the lowest speed, taking care to hold the lid with an oven mitt. To blend salsa and dip, cut foods in small pieces and use a gentle pulsing action, waiting for the blades to stop between pulses.
What could be better than a perfect smoothie for breakfast or mid-day snack? Breakfast isn't called the most important meal of the day without good cause; eating a good breakfast can jump-start your day, giving you the nutrients and energy you need. Why not make a smoothie--one of the most popular drinks to make in a blender--your breakfast?
Skip the hassle of messy blender cleanup by opting for a low-maintenance machine that's as conscious about cleaning as you are. The lid, jar and blades are dishwasher safe and what's more, the Smoothie Smart Blender has a no-mess pouring spout that directs drink contents into your cup, instead of dripping down the sides of the jar or all over the counter. For easy cleanup afterwards, any mess on its smooth touchpad is quickly wiped away and its cord stores neatly out of sight.
Remember to always add liquids FIRST, and then add frozen items, ice cubes or solid ingredients. For the best performance, the minimum amount of liquid needed per recipe is one cup (8 ounces/250 ml). Add more liquid if your mixture is not blending properly. If blending action stops during blending or ingredients stick to the sides of the jar, turn blender OFF. Remove lid and use rubber spatula to push mixture toward blades. While the Smoothie Smart Blender is powerful, it's not designed to process stiff dough, whip egg whites, grind raw meat or extract juices from produce.
