Blend

Blend is a technique in which a blender is used for making incredibly creamy frozen cocktails, mocktails and smoothies.

All of the ingredients, including the ice, go into the blender’s pitcher. So as not to stress the motor and the blades,  it is a good idea to use the pulse button a few times before proceeding.  After twenty seconds, the drink will be perfectly blended and ready to be served.

Handy tip

It is usually better to put the ingredients in the pitcher before you add the ice, but if you have an especially thick ingredient it‘s best to add that one on top of the ice so that it doesn’t stick to the blades and so that, even if the blender is not a particularly powerful one, it will mix it better.
