I had the chance to review the Oster Versa Professional Performance Blender. I was so excited to see all of the attachments that it came with! After I unboxed it and washed it I wasted no time running to the store to buy things to make salsa and smoothies! I had never owned a food processor so I was curious how easy it would be to work and it was way more simple than I could of imagined. My salsa came out delicious and of course the first smoothies did also! This blender has two programed settings one for salsa and dips and one for smoothies. They both work perfectly!
I was concerned about how the smoothie would come out in this setting because as you can see I put as much in this blender as I could! Also these fruits and veggies had many different textures!
These smoothies came out a little more green than I had envisioned I was concerned that my kids would not even try them. However they all 3 loved them!
- baby carrots
- baby spinach
- frozen peaches
- frozen strawberries
- 2 bananas sliced and frozen
- Orange Juice
- You can use any amounts to make as much or as little as you like! The kefir is a great way to get creaminess to the smoothie and some wonderful probiotic into your diet!
- Add all of your veggies first. I do this because I want to make sure the carrots and spinach get chopped up as much as possible.
- Add your fruits next.
- Add Kefir about 1/4 way and then Orange juice about 1/2 way just to make sure there was enough liquid so that the smoothie could be drank with a straw.
- Turn your blender on and hit the smoothie button the blender does the rest.
I highly recommend this blender! It has well exceeded my expectations! I have been trying to add a lot more healthy fruits and vegetables into my families diet and this blender makes it so easy and my family loves it also! This blender also came with a recipe booklet I can not wait to try some new recipes!
I was compensated for my time making this post but all opinions are my own.
