Easter Recipes

Easter is this Sunday. I know not everybody celebrates this holiday, but I love Easter. For me, it means spring is finally here, and I love spring weather in Utah. I love going Easter egg hunting  (yes, I still do that, even though many would think I’m too old). My mom likes to do an Easter egg hunt for her grandkids and one for her kids; she’s awesome like that.

This year is also my son’s first Easter, and my first with a child, and I can’t wait to celebrate it with my husband and son. I’m even thinking of getting him a cute Easter outfit for Sunday; any excuse to shop is a good one!

I also love getting together with family and enjoying a nice Easter dinner. So here are five great recipes that you can enjoy with your family and friends for the holiday.

    Hi Kelli –

    I am a new Blendtec owner (arrived yesterday!). I notice that a lot of recipes call for Agave nectar. Is this used as a more healthy replacement for sugar or honey?

    Looking forward to trying many of your recipes.

    Why do you always specify a certain jar? One jar should work for all, or all you trying to promote new sales through your recipes? Most of your recipes specify a jar that was “invented” after I purchased my set-up. The rolls recipe, for instance, specifies a “Wildside” jar, yet when I purchased my Blendtec, making bread was no problem in the jar that was part of my purchase.

      Hello,
      The FourSide is great for making bread. The WildSide jar is bigger, so it can make more at once.

      ⅔ C warm water
      2 tsp dry active yeast
      1 Tbsp honey
      ¾ tsp kosher salt
      1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
      1 Tbsp canola oil
      1 ¾ Tbsp vital wheat gluten
      1 ¾ C whole white wheat flour, divided

      Add water, yeast and honey to jar and secure lid. Press “Pulse” 2 times. Allow the yeast
      to proof for 5–10 minutes. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Add kosher salt, lemon juice, oil and
      gluten to jar and secure lid. Press “Pulse” 1 time. Add ⅓ of flour to jar and secure lid.
      Press “Pulse” 2 times. Add next ⅓ of flour and secure lid. Press “Pulse” 4–6 times. Add
      last ⅓ of flour and secure lid. Press “Pulse” 8–10 times until flour is incorporated and
      dough ball forms.

      Allow dough to rest in jar for 10-15 minutes. Dump dough ball onto oiled surface and
      shape loaf. Place shaped loaf, seam side down, into 8”x 4” greased loaf pan. Cover loaf
      pan and allow dough to rise for 20 minutes in a warm place or until dough has topped
      the pan by approximately one inch. Bake for 18–20 minutes

    Hi,

    I recently bought the BlendTec. Do you have any recipes for ice cream that does not use dairy, but instead uses coconut milk? All my ice cream turns out like a thick smoothie.

    Many thanks,
    Bonnie

      Hi Bonnie,
      1/4 c coconut milk
      1 1/2 tbsp sugar
      1/2 tsp lemon juice
      1 1/2 c frozen strawberries, or blueberries, or raspeberries

      This recipe is typically made in the Twister jar. You might have to add a 1/4 c/tsp/tbsp to everything to do it in the FourSide or WildSide jar.
