How much power?

Being a major smoothie junkie myself, I approve of this post!

Hi,<br />I love 'em too...yum is right.<br /><br />This one uses 175 w AC power, She...but only for a matter of seconds. I always haqve a 400w invertor in my van.<br />I was looking at the "Bullet" but it is way too spendy for my amout of use...<br /><br />Bri

I really like my Kitchen Aid immersible blender.&nbsp; Pricier but it was a gift. <img src="/images/boards/smilies/smile.gif" alt="" align="absmiddle" border="0" /> It came with several attachments, too, and does everything my large Cuisinart does except in smaller portions.&nbsp; Just right for the RV.

Have you tried the green smoothies yet? With Kale (a wonderfully healthful green, especially raw) or spinach? You can mix em w/fruit and they are so good you don't even know it's in there... except it's green! Another wonderful one is pumpkin pie smoothie... basically about 1/2 a banana, about 1/3 or 1/4 can of pumpkin (freeze or fridge the rest) yogurt and your liquid of choice.. i use almond or coconut milk, cinnamon (great for keeping your blood sugar level) and nutmeg!!! Oh and ice of course! Oh man, that is a yummy, healthful breakfast!&nbsp; You can add honey for sweetener but I don't. (does the bullet use a lot of power? that's what I have)<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

<br /><br />That is what I was looking at as well...I think that is what Sue SoaringSun has, or one like it....In fact if something like that had been in the store where I bought my little solo blender was, I may have bought that instead....Nice.<br /><br /><br />

<br />I don't know but probably not very much...take a look at the little place on it...the label or plate where it says stuff...on there it should tell you how many watts.<br /><br />I don't know if my little blender is tough enough to grind up spinach or kale....but I will try...sounds great...thanks for the recipes...<br />Bri

I have a stick blender that works great. &nbsp;They seem to last a few years then it is time for a new one. &nbsp;Works pretty good for making hummus too.

I have a Vitamix...I love it, use it everyday and will by a generator just so I can use it!&nbsp;&nbsp;A green smoothie is a daily treat and have been getting&nbsp;healthier since drinking them.&nbsp; Hate to even think how much juice the Vitamix takes!&nbsp; The Bullet is great too except it doesn't chop ice as well as the Vitamix.<br /><br />Rae
