View Full Version : Any recipes to try in my Blendtec?
11-19-2008, 01:13 AM
I'm expecting my Blendtec to arrive any day now, hopefully tomorrow. I was wondering if there are any recipes that can take advantage of the power of these blenders?
As an exception I'll accept low calorie recipes this time, since I'll probably want to try it 20 times the day I get it so I'll make 20 low calorie recipes lol.

Def not low calorie, but the raw cheesecake recipe going around it AMAZING. The one programmed button I do recommend using is the "grind grains" for nuts when you need to grind them for crusts. It does an excellent (BUT VERY VERY LOUD) job. Buy yourself some ear plugs, or better yet, ear muffs.

Do you have the link? One of the premade raw things they sell at my health food store is cheesecake, the second I are it I knew they used a vitamix or blendtec to get that texture, my Breville blender could never get anywhere near that smoothness.
Hopefuilly it will be delivered any hour now, or at least any day now.

Is this it?
I did a search for cheesecake and this was the first one I came up with...

For the crust:
1 1/2 cups of almonds
1/2 cup agave
1/4 cup coconut
To make the crust, use Blendtec to grind nuts, then transfer nuts to food processor and add agave/coconut. Place the ingredients into a pie plate and press all around the pie plate, once this is done I put it in the fridge.
For the Cheese:
3 cups of cashews -- can be soaked but don't have to be
3/4 cup of lemon juice
3/4 cup agave
3/4 cup of coconut oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla
To make the cheese, blend the cashews, lemon, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla. Can add a bit of water if needed. Blend until smooth and adjust to taste.
Pour the cheese mixture onto the crust.
Place the cheesecake into the freezer until its nice and firm.
Then I put cheesecake into the fridge for about an 1 hour.

Makes ice cream well.

Thanks for the cheesecake recipe. The ones at my health food store had fruits in the cheese, can I simply add fruits to the cheese recipe above to make fruit cheese or replace the lemon juice with fruits?

The lemon is what makes it "cheesecake" like....
I wouldn't omit that. But you could always make a fruit and date (or agave) syrup to go on top.
If you have Alissa's book, she has a nice blueberry cheesecake recipe you could try.

I must say I hate SAD cheesecake, to me the last place cheese belongs is in a cake. The one I bought at the health food store was nothing like SAD cheesecake and that's why I liked it.
I do remember seeing Alissa's blueberry cheese cake recipe and will try that, thanks.

Darn, I just got a delivery, was hoping it was my Blendtec, but the second I saw the size of the box I knew it was "just" the 11 lbs of in shell macadamia nuts I also ordered recently.
Hopefully it will get here later today or tomorrow, I should for sure have it by Friday.
