a mason jar as blender-jar
Here is the direct link for: A Mason Jar as Blender-Jar.
FYI. Did you notice my collage photo above? I created it using the Picmonkey collage tutorial. For more details check out my blog post for June 5, 2012.
Using a Mason jar as a blender-jar? What a clever idea, especially for a quick smoothie or small batch of pesto or even chopped nuts! My standard blender attachment blade fitted perfectly onto a standard regular-mouth Mason jar. This pin comes from the Real Simple blog; its author does caution though, "Don't fill the jar more than half full, and as with any regular blender, avoid very hot liquids." Makes sense, especially since it doesn't have a vented top.
I tried my newest contraption on a smoothie for my daughter. Half a prepackaged frozen Yoplait chocolate-banana yogurt smoothie mix, a little milk, a scoop of chocolate protein powder and 'wa-la'! She loved drinking right out of the jar. Any leftovers? simply screw on a Ball Mason jar plastic storage cap and there's more for later. Saves on clean up too!
