These are high in protein and healthy fats and lower in carbs and sugar than most snacks. Whether you enjoy the tastes of peanut butter, chocolate, or fruit - you're bound to enjoy one of these energy bites.

    The Twister jar definitely helps to make the ice cream thicker, but you don’t need it to make ice cream. Check out our ice cream recipes that use other jars. The Twister jar will fit all Blendtec blender models (but not Blendtec mixers).

    Yes, if you click on the recipe images, names or the link below the recipe, it will take you directly to the recipe page which has instructions for the WildSide+ jar under “Variations.”

    It should be heating. Sometimes you need to run it longer than the 90 second cycle. We often run that cycle twice to heat things up. But it all depends on the ingredients you’re adding. If they’re already warm/hot, it won’t need as long.

    You can order a Twister jar here. Or you can check out our Find a Store page to find one.

    We haven’t tried it with maple syrup but, yes, I do think you’ll have to add a little more to get the right consistency. Add it until you can press the mixture together and it sticks. And, yes, they should freeze nicely! Happy blending!
