Recently I decided to invest in a nice blender, I picked out the Ninja Blender Duo with Auto IQ after I saw it in action at a conference.  They used it to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream with only three ingredients!

I started to think about all the different ways that I’ve used a blender and thought I’d share some of the less known ideas with you.  Check out all the ideas!

Things You Didn't know you could make in a Blender!

Top Things You Didn’t Know You Could Make With a Blender

Pie Crust– I used to use my Food Processor to make my pie crust but after I got my Ninja and tried it once – I was sold!  This is a great way to make a homemade Pie Crust that’s buttery and delicious!

Homemade Peanut Butter – Yes, that’s right!  You can make your own Peanut Butter with your Blender by using just a couple easy ingredients! With as little as three ingredients you can make your own!

Baby Food – Most of you probably already knew this one but there might be a few people who didn’t realize just how easy it was to make homemade baby food by using a blender and fresh veggies!

Shredded Meat – You know those recipes that call for shredded chicken?  Put the forks away and try using your blender instead!

Compounded Butter – If you love Herb Butter and delicious flavor options – using your blender to create these amazing combinations is simple!  You can check out our Garlic Herb Butter for an example.

Instant Applesauce – All you need to make this yummy treat for your kids is a couple ingredients – check out this recipe that I found!

Soup – I used my Blender to make a creamy tomato soup with fresh tomatoes and it was so much better than what I would have gotten straight from the can!

Homemade Bread Crumbs – Use some toasted bread and seasonings to blend up your own bread crumbs to use in recipes!

Powdered Sugar – This is great!  All you have to do is put regular sugar in the blender and let it go until you have powdered sugar!  It’s just that easy!

Whipped Cream – I had been using my stand mixer to make my Whipped Cream but decided to try my blender and it worked like a charm!  So easy to have a fresh topping for cakes and drinks!

This is the Blender that I love and use! It’s been amazing so far!

    Wow what great uses for a blender. I would have never thought of shredding meat or making peanut butter in my blender.
