Have you ever optimistically put some kale in your blender, only to regret it when it came out all chewy? I have definitely been there. Luckily, my dear friend Dreena Burton persistently nudged me until I finally got myself a BlendTec. Or, as we affectionately refer to it: Rambo Blender.
Not that you can’t make some awesome stuff with a regular blender – but I generally stick with just fruit, maybe some english cucumber, maybe some spinach.
A high-powered blender like a BlendTec opens up so many more possibilities, like adding kale (with the stems!) or ice or cocoa nibs – and knowing it’ll come out super duper smooth.
That’s why I’m absolutely thrilled that BlendTec has generously offered a give a brand new blender to one of YOU! This is to help celebrate the launch of my new book, The Plant-Based Diet Meal Plan, which includes a few smoothies that have kale or carrots and will come out best with a high-powered blender like a BlendTec (though I gave options for those who don’t have one).
One of those smoothies is the Tropi-Kale Breeze (recipe below), so get yourself entered to win and get blending! And maybe order a copy of my book? In whatever order you wish…
