Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have a new Blendtec and love it, but this cookbook is not written for the newer models. I'm sorry I didn't know that when ordering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the step-by-step instructions There are so many recipes in this book, and it tells you what to put in step by step. Specifically in order of how to load your blender, which is a huge must! This has been my go-to book and it has a permanent space on my kitchen counter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Recipes, but horrible index Great recipes, but the index is horrific. Commonly used ingredients are listed, followed by a swath of page numbers. No help at all in locating what you want to make. Please, can somebody edit this and under "banana", for example, list the name of the recipe and then the page number for each entry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy it includes nutritional info! I received this book free as a "reward" for number of blends. I was expecting a little booklet and instead received a hardcover, super easy to use cookbook with over two hundred pages! I was so impressed and I"ve tried several recipes already, with great results. The hummus, especially - awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great book! I mainly do smoothies in my blender, but this book had shown me that you can do so much more. I especially like the grains and frozen desserts chapters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I bought the receipe book and really like it. However, that said I feel like it has so many recipes that deal with the twister jar which I do not have. When I bought the blender, I did not even know you could get a twister jar blendtec. I feel like I have to stop and stir quite a bit. Otherwise I do like it a lot.

Does this book give more information about how to use the Blendtec in general? Like how to make any nut butter, how much liquid to solids ratio, how to have success with any frozen treat, without having to follow a specific recipe?
