Creative Ways to Use a Blender

Smoothies are most likely the most popular thing we use our blenders for, but they’re not the only thing! There are so many inventive ways you can make your Solo Blend work for you. Check out these unique and creative ways you can use your blender.

Smooth up your soups by cooking up your favorite vegetables and then transferring them to your blender. Pulse a few times for a chunky version (great for a hearty vegetable recipe) or blend until smooth for a more delicate meal (great for tomato soup or cream of asparagus).
Condiments and Sauces

Get into DIY mode and make your own homemade condiments, sauces, or marinades. We love this simple recipe for fresh mayonnaise:


  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice 
  • 2 teaspoons mustard powder
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled and smashed
  • 1 cup liquid coconut oil
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt


Place all ingredients in the blender and blend on high speed until your mixture looks like thick creamy mayonnaise. Season to taste.

When Life Gives You Lemons
Why struggle over squeezing lemons for the perfect lemonade when you can just…blend? Place water, sugar, and quartered lemons and/or limes in your blender and blend. Then strain the mixture through a sieve and sip up!

Sunday Mornings Made Easy
Do you love your Sunday brunch? We do, too. Why not use your blender to whip up your favorite pancake recipe in no time? This method also works for creating the fluffiest egg omelets.

DIY Kitchen Staples
If you love to DIY in the kitchen, your blender is your new best friend. Try making your own almond milk, oat flour, cashew butter, or even bean dips.
