My husband’s favorite dessert is cheesecake. It’s Father’s Day and I wanted to make him something special. I also wanted to try a not so sweet dessert so our son could enjoy it too. This recipe is all about just mixing everything together. It takes about 15 minutes to prepare and about 2 hours of patience to wait for it to chill in the refrigerator.
As shown in the video, I used my very powerful Blendtec, which by the way is incredible. I mean, it can blend an Iphone or golf balls to itty bitty pieces. Of course there’s no way I would try it myself since living without my phone is impossible. How would I answer all of your lovely questions? So here’s a YouTube video of how powerful it is.
If you’re on the market for a turbo blender, make sure you look out for my full review coming soon. Remember, it does so much more than just smoothies! I think it’s a huge game changer already.
I want to try out several recipes with it so I can write a thorough review for all of you.
