BlenderBottle Review and Giveaway!! 2 Winners!



I love working in the kitchen, whether it's baking a treat for the family, cooking dinner, or trying out a new recipe. And I recently found a new tool to help me with all of these tasks! I received a package from BlenderBottle that included an original (28 oz.) BlenderBottle, an Insulated Sling, and the 101 Quick and Easy BlenderBottle Recipes book. 




I was excited about trying this out. For those of you not familiar with the BlenderBottle, it is a super-handy, portable mixer that really works! The super-simple-yet-ingenious design features a heavy duty plastic bottle, a wire whisk ball, and a lid with pour spout. It is perfect for mixing up anything from sauces to drinks, to a multitude of ingredients for your recipes. I knew I could do a lot with the BlenderBottle, but I didn't realize just how handy it was till after trying a few recipes! While browsing the recipe book, 2 recipes jumped out, so I decided to try both of them. First, the Delicious Lemon Bars. I love lemon pies, so this seemed like a great start. It was sooo simple to make!


The recipe
Blend those ingredients!

That was easy! 
My finished lemon bars
Yummy!
These were absolutely delicious! I chilled them for a couple hours, and it was perfect! These are an awesome summer treat :)
The 2nd recipe I tried is one that I have a particular weakness for, since it features ice cream. And one of my favorite ice cream treats is orange dreamsicles. So I had to try the Orange Dream Shake. It is out-of-this-world awesomeness! 


The Insulated Sling is great to be able to take my BlenderBottle with me whether I'm working in the yard, or working out at the gym. I can mix up a drink in the bottle, and bring it along with me in the sling. The sling will hook onto my gym bag, loop around my belt...it is such a handy way to keep my drink cold!


2 of my readers will receive a BlenderBottle pack that includes an Original BlenderBottle, Insulated Sling, and 101 Quick and Easy Recipes book!
