    I love my blendtec and I promise not to blend a cell phone in it!
    Thank you for more recipes. Keep ’em coming…

    Lots of people avoiding gluten and dairy these days–very surprised to see all the oats and granola in so many of these–and the yogurt. All of these have one or the other. What else is possible?

    • Hi Rosie,
      We definitely always like to try new recipes for all of our customers to enjoy. If there’s ever granola/oats listed in a smoothie, you can leave them out, it won’t change the recipe much. Also, using a banana in place of yogurt is a great option.

      Hi Rosie,
      Oats do not contain gluten (they may contain a trace amount if they are processed in a factory that also processes wheat products). There are companies that process their oats in a facility that is dedicated to a gluten free facility (i.e. Bob’s Red Mill). Oats are a whole grain and they are an important part of a healthy diet. They are an excellent source of fiber and complex carbohydrates that give us long term energy throughout the day. For the yogurt, there are brands that are dairy free you can use instead. They have yogurts made from organic (GMO free) soy, coconut milk and almond milk that are delicious!!! You may want to try them.

      Use Chia Seeds, nuts, or flax seed to add protein instead of the oats and granoloa. I never use yogurt in smoothies anymore – use almond milk or soy milk plus a half of a banana … and I sweeten with agave nectar when I want more … I also never use ice – I just use frozen fruit (cut into bite size pieces before frozen) – enjoy mixing things up to your own liking

    Now you guys are finally starting to get on the right path! These are better smoothies than you normally come up with. Only a reasonable amount of fruit, no added sugar, and the inclusion of other good foods with the use of stevia (although if people are using a pure stevia, 1/4 teaspoon would be totally undrinkable…the scoop is minute, about the size of half a green pea and it would take about 3 or so for these). Keep up the good work!

    Love my Blendtec, it is 9 years old and still going strong 🙂
    My husband has been diagnosed with Diverticulitis therefore no nuts and seeds of any kind.
    So I am looking for recipes without any nuts and seeds
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you

  • Tammy

    I love my blender and use it every day. Thank you for the great recipes. I purchased a reconditioned one, and it works great. My son was so impressed with the blender, he ordered one. I wish you has some sort of student discount. My daughter is in grad school (no money and little time) and your blender would be great for quick healthy smoothies. Thank you.

  • Sidney

  • Mary Ann

    Your weekly Blendtec email recipes are totally awesome. Thank you
    for sharing these treasures! Please keep up the awesome good work.

  • yvette

    Just bought the classic 570 Blendtec at Costco, Timmy Mack did a fantastic job selling this blender but in all his recipes he added ice cubes none are mentioned in yours why?

  • Samar

    Thank you for your recipe, for better sweetener option use coconut sugar, it is great even for diabetics, it has low glycemic index
    nuts can be replaced by flakes of barley, it is so healthy, it contains so many heart full nutrients on top of good fibers
