The New Kid on the Counter

So I have a confession to make. I was convinced that I owned every small kitchen appliance that I would ever need. I admire the punk rock ethos that Isa and Terry perpetuate in that you don't need fancy accoutrement to make good vegan food. I inherited my food processor from my grandmother. I’m certain that I could use my oven to dehydrate flax crackers if I ever decide to try them. I was content to make my beloved green smoothie every morning with the $20 discount store blender that I’ve had for years. I had learning the exact timing required to mulch kale. Then, one morning, the smell of burning plastic signaled the dawn of a new green smoothie era. Behold, the mighty Champ HP:

It contains the raw ingredients of our favourite green smoothie – Tracy's Tropical Typhoon.

Tropical Typhoon (serving for one person with an extra large smoothie travel mug)

1/4 papaya
1 banana
1/4 pineapple
1/2 mango
1 handful kale
1 scoop hemp protein powder
3 cups water

Blend together in K-Tec Champ HP on 2. Or your old trusty working blender. It’s all good.

Wowza! That's one shiny new blender you've got there. My little Black & Decker is starting to give out on me (you know, smells of motor burning) - and it's no wonder when I use it about twice a day... oh well, I was planning on getting a more heavy duty version, anyway. I think a good blender is a necessary accoutrement.

Your tropical typhoon looks, delicious, too. =)

Aren't new kitchen gadgets the best?

Congrats on the new blender! It's a beauty. I recently got the same blender and LOVE it! I look for things to blend in it.

New kitchen appliances are the best.
