Rich and delicious Frozen Hot Chocolate topped with whipped cream and chocolate sauce! A perfect treat on any winter night! Dairy Queen’s frozen hot chocolate is still one of my favorite things to get! There’s something about it that’s just so good!
Use mint hot chocolate, raspberry hot chocolate or even add a spoonful of peanut butter to kick it up a notch! I love smoothies and milkshake drinks because they’re so easy to adjust and make your own. I used almond milk in this one to get a little extra protein and added a little bit of coconut extract to make it chocolate-coconut frozen hot chocolate.
I got my Blendtec a few weeks ago and I became obsessed pretty quickly. First of all, the blades are blunt. They just move so fast that they pulverize everything in their way. Which is awesome for 2 reasons…. 1: I don’t risk cutting myself. 2: Most blenders work great for a few months and then are terrible after their blades go dull, but the Blendtec has a whole different approach! They rely on power instead of the sharpness of the blade!
I have had just way too much fun with this blender! I’ve made soups, pie crusts, hummus and even crushed candy canes in it!
This blender literally makes me smile. It will say funny things like “Push my buttons” and it will keep track of hw many smoothies you make! So cool! And it will even say “goodbye” and “hello” on the little screen when you turn it on and off. But do you see those buttons? They are magic. From left to right, you have your smoothie button, the salsa button, the ice cream/sorbet button, the juicing button, the soup button (yes it will blend down your vegetables and heat it up to make you a soup!!!!) and the clean button. Yes, just give it a little water and a drop of soap and it will clean itself. Genius.
Yes, I am obsessed with my BlendTec.
