    Thanks for these. I don’t have a Blendtec but I do so love seeing the wonderful things you can do with it or add to your meals with it.

    This may be a dumb question (forgive me if it is) but can you put cherries in without first pitting them? I don’t want to ruin my new Blendtec! :)

      Great question. We don’t recommend putting cherry pits in our blenders. They would blend just fine (might cloud your jar a little), but they may contain cyanogenic acids (aka cyanide). Because of this we don’t recommend blending them.

    Ok, you all are probably going to think this VERY strange, but I added my cooked broccoli stems (I eat everything) that I steamed the night before. Of course I had to add lots of fruit to disguise the ugly green color, but it was yummy. :)

    I love adding chia seeds to my smoothies. It’s a great thickener and blending is a good way to hide it if I’m not in the mood for those fun bubbles of chia in a pudding/water-based drink.
