Thursday Thoughts: Death by Swiss Chard

Have you jumped on the green smoothie bandwagon?  It's so easy to throw leafy greens in the blender with some fruit and a bit of water and enjoy a healthy drink.  


Of course, dark smoke wafting from the base of the blender puts a damper on the experience.  My trusty Oster blender, after many years of service, and many green smoothies, recently suffered death by Swiss chard.  



So, should I buy another Oster (and then I would have two blender jars), or should I get a different brand?  Do you have a favorite blender recommendation? 

Thanks for good advice.

  1. I don't even own a blender, so I will be of no use. I'll be watching closely, though, just in case I ever decide to jump on the smoothie train.

  2. I have an Oster that I've used for several years.

  3. If you've had the Oster for several years (with a lot of use) then I would suggest getting another one. Having 2 blender jars may come in handy for family or parties. I use a knock off version of the bullet. I really like it. It's small, doesn't take up a lot of space, easy to clean and I can make servings for just myself (not ideal of you have a group of girls who want a pitcher of daquiris haha).

  5. If you really want a good blender and want to fork over some money get a Blendtec!! Kimberly got one from her mother in law and that thing is awesome! You can make your own almond milk or cashew milk, you can make soups, and other cool stuff. But...very expensive. I am jealous, though!!:-)

  6. I have a trusty Oster and use it almost every day you can't beat the price. I just can't see spending $100 for a blender for gosh sakes!
