How to Buy the Right Blender

Monday, October 19th, 2015

If you are really serious about blending, creating smoothies, creating raw ice creams, nut butters, soups, sauces and so much more – no one can deny that it’s worth saving your pennies to invest in a high quality blender when choosing a blender.

The first point to begin when choosing a blender is with the capacity that you require. If you know 8 ounces every morning is all you need then there is no need to get a huge blender, and vice versa. If you know that you need to make enough smoothies for the whole day then a bigger capacity pitcher would be a better option.

The next thing is the speed of blending. This is dictated by the power of the motor the blender has. The more power output you go for, the faster you will be able to make your smoothies. More power will also give you more room to play with hard ingredients like ice and nuts.

Another factor is the ease of operation. Some blenders will require much more time just to get them started while others only require the push of a button. When choosing a blender, go for one that makes work as easy as it can get.

Finally, you should never forget the cleaning process of the blender. The faster and easier you can clean it the better.

So when you are ready to upgrade to a Vitamix or Blendtec blender, take a look at Blendtec and Vitamix Reviews for more information.

Low Fat Ice Creams

Friday, June 26th, 2015

Enjoying an ice-cream in summers is a favourite activity for all. Yesterday I felt like having a chocolate flavour. But then I realised that it is too sweet and thought of having something that is not too high in calories.
I was just searching on the internet about the places serving it which offers healthy ice creams.

It is made by whipping the mixture (a combination of milk, cream, eggs, sweeteners and flavourings) with a lot of air. This makes it light and fluffy.

In general, a regular one contains around 140 calories and six grams of fat per 1/2 cup serving.

I also heard that Gelato, which is becoming very popular these days, is mixed very slowly, limiting the amount of air and giving it a thick and dense texture.

Gelato usually has less fat than regular one. So, I tried gelato also. It was creamy and smooth.

I thought of asking my friends for best places serving sugar-free ice creams. There are many places serving sugar free flavours. Earlier there was not much variety in sugar free but nowadays there’s a lot.

There are plenty of other diet-friendly options like frozen yoghurt, sherbet, slow-churned ice-cream, soft serve and sorbet.

You can also sometimes avoid to have toppings such as chocolate chips, candies and sprinkles which have even the calorie count even higher and don’t offer any nutritional benefits.

The best places in Delhi are Haagen-Dazs, Mother Dairy, Cream Bell, Frugurpop and many more. So, these are some of the places where everyone can visit to eat their choice.

Ice cream is by no means a healthy diet. But sometimes it is a pleasure most people wouldn’t want to give up.

There is lot of craze these days about Natural. It opened its first store in Delhi last year. The ice creams made by this brand are made using fruits, dry fruits, milk and sugar with no preservatives.

The flavours are coffee walnut, guava, kaju kismis, kesar pista, malai, mango, pineapple and many more.

For frozen desserts made from rice milk, soymilk, coconut milk and tofu, the calories and saturated fat vary with the base (coconut-milk varieties have the most sat. fat; soy-based ones often have the least).
