Blenders can be a useful tool for dieters. They’re a quick way to mix a sugar-free smoothie, or a great tool for when you’re extra-hungry and don’t want to go over your calorie count.
Here are some tips for choosing the right blender. First, look for a blender that’s specifically designed to chop ice. When you add ice to your mix, you can enhance the volume without adding calories.
And you can even make a quick, low-cal smoothie just by taking a package of sugar-free, diet cocoa mix and preparing it as directed. Put ice cubes in the blender, and pour the cocoa drink over it, then blend. Put the cup in the freezer until the consistency of soft serve ice cream. It’s a delicious drink for about 25 to 50 calories. For this purpose, Black & Decker has a new model, the Performance FusionBlade Blending System, which includes a 64 ounce BPA-Free lightweight blending jar and 5-speed digital touch control panel with a pulse button.
What to do when you’re in a rush and want a fast breakfast? While diet experts such as Bob Harper recommend making a substantial meal, sometimes it just isn’t possible. In such cases, keep protein shake mixes available. Most of them just require you to add water, ice cubes, and milk to whisk up a protein-rich liquid breakfast.
For that morning smoothie, try the Tribest Personal Blender, which has a 200 watt motor to make it easy. If you’re going to make a protein shake for the whole family, consider Tribest’s Dynablend® Horsepower Plus, which provides a BPA-free, heavy duty glass pitcher and stainless steel scoop.
