Hi everyone! I burnt out the motor on my cheapie ($20) food processor making a raw cashew-based dessert for Thanksgiving. So now I'm limping along with no food processor and an old Osterizer. I can either afford to upgrade to a high speed blender or else buy a Cuisinart, but not both right now. I've got to say my Osterizer is surprisingly strong for an inexpensive blender. It makes great smoothies, raw pasta sauce, nut milks. But would a Vitamix or Blendtec be able to make creamy raw desserts like cashew-based pies? (I love to bring them to potlucks.) Or would I need a food processor for that?
Thanks for your help. This is my first post after my "who are you" introduction. :)
