3 Reasons Why I Love My Cuisinart Hand Blender

What is the one appliance that I use in my kitchen more than once a day, that helps me with my health and makes life easier?? It’s my Cuisinart Hand Immersion Blender! I have mine for YEARS! I love it for things like making baby food, protein shakes, homemade salad dressing, and so much more!

Every time I have mentioned a hand immersion blender you have all agreed that they are fantastic! So, I wanted to share the three reasons in particular WHY I appreciate the immersion blender, and also several hand blender uses that make my life so much easier.

But, before I get to that I do want to point out that this is just one of the tools that have assisted me in my 60-pound weight loss AND it’s one tool I’ve used to maintain that weight loss! I use it every day when I make my protein shake for breakfast.

For those of you who have been wondering about how I’ve lost the weight and maintained that weight loss, this is just one of the things that has helped me. If you missed it, be sure to read my post about why I absolutely adore my bathroom scale!  PLUS, check out my journey with the keto diet! OK… back to why I love my immersion blender!

Hand blender uses

1. Easy to use

My hand blender can be ready to go in seconds. I keep it in the cupboard, right next to my Trim Shake mix, protein shake mix, and PB2. This allows me to whip up my breakfast quickly!

It came with a great 32-ounce measuring cup that I mix it all up in (I use almond milk and crushed ice). I love how I can use it on liquids, ice, or even hot foods. So much easier to use this for small batches of food that needs to be whipped or blended.

2. Powerful and versatile

The immersion hand blender has kept going strong for us for over 7 years…and it’s not one of the kitchen gadgets that is rarely used…we use it on a regular basis and for all things! We recently mashed potatoes and it worked really well!

With a 200-watt motor, it will be ready to blend up most any kind of pre-cooked veggie, smoothie recipe, homemade salad dressings, even smoothies with frozen fruit!

3. Easy to clean up

The immersion stick can be easily removed and washed quickly. I just pop off the stick and give it a quick rinse under hot water in the blending cup and then I’m done!

6+ Hand Blender Uses

1. Fresh Smoothies

One of my kid’s favorite breakfasts is a fruit smoothie, and this is our number one way we use the blender. We enjoy trying new combinations and I’ve even slipped in some spinach now and then! 😉

2. Chocolate Milk

Chocolate milk in seconds? Done! Just add syrup to milk blend for about 10 seconds, and you’re ready to go.

3. Protein Shakes

Each morning I start my day with a TrimShake… a meal replacement shake with only 70 calories and some amazing benefits that help control “stress-induced” appetite, overeating, and carb cravings.

One other reason I LOVE it is that it has amino acids in it… this helps protect the muscles I’ve been building so my body burns fat instead of muscle! I can help you get this at WHOLESALE pricing (about $1 per serving). Send me an email at seekingwellness@fabulesslyfrugal.com and let me know you want to know more about the Trim Shake.

4. Baby Food

Baby food really is SIMPLE to do, and is so much more cost effective! Prepare big batches and freeze them, OR make a small batch with dinner.  The hand blender makes it easy to blend to just the right consistency and all of the food is ready at the same time! This saves some major money!

5. Whipped cream

Sometimes you just want a little something for dessert. Rather than whipping up a big batch of cream, you can pour a little amount in the measuring cup and blend away!

6. Homemade Salad Dressing

My favorite to throw together is this Creamy Poppyseed salad dressing from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. And just last night I made the Avocado cream sauce for this amazing and easy chicken recipe using my hand blender.  I’ve also used it to make the bacon paste for this popular kebabs recipe!

6 Other Hand Blender Uses

There are so many different hand blender uses that I could probably go on forever. A few more ideas include:

  • Making gravy
  • Blending hummus
  • Whipping eggs before you scramble them
  • Mashing potatoes
  • Preparing sauces; and
  • Even chopping nuts for baking!
