A few weeks ago one of my friends asked me if I could figure out how to make a smoothie without a blender. At first I thought it would be impossible; there is no way you could mix everything so thoroughly without a blender. However, I got to thinking and I found a way to make delicious smoothies without going out to buy a new blender.
Start with some fruit, either frozen or very ripe. If your fruit is frozen put it in a microwave safe bowl and defrost it. Take a utensil such as a potato masher and start smashing the fruit. The fruit should be pretty broken down but you’ll still have some chunks when you are finished.
Add in whatever milk, yogurt, etc that you want in your smoothie. Mix it and mash it into the fruit. When you are finished all your ingredients should be well mixed with some fruit chunks left over.
Pour your smoothie into a glass and stick in the freezer for about 30 minutes so that it cools down from being defrosted.
There you are! A perfect way to make smoothies without a blender. Almost everything about the taste and texture is the same as a blender. The biggest difference is you will have chunks of fruit in your smoothie unlike a blender smoothie! Enjoy!
Do you have limited access to appliances? What other things would you like to know how to make without these appliances?
