Watermelon Juice + A Hamilton Beach Wave-Action Blender Giveaway!

{Disclosure: As a Brand Ambassador for Hamilton Beach I received the Wave-Action® Blender to review, however, all opinions are 100% my own. This giveaway is sponsored by Hamilton Beach.} 

Good morning lovelies! There's nothing better on a warm summer day than a cold beer, but that's not a healthy way to start your day;). These days my breakfast consists of toast and fresh juice or a smoothie. My husband refers to me as the smoothie queen because I make them so much. I've also been known to burn out a few blenders in my day.

The folks over at Hamilton Beach were kind enough to send me this beauty, Wave-Action® Blender.



Features:
  • Wave~Action® system pulls mixture into the blades for smooth results
  • Lid spout makes pouring easy
  • 48 oz. glass jar
  • Ideal for smoothies, shakes & icy drinks
  • 700 watt peak power motor
  • Dishwasher-safe glass jar
  • Lid with pour spout & filler cap
  • Three-year limited warranty
  • Stir spoon included for thicker foods & mixtures
  • BPA-free in food zones


So, what did the self proclaimed smoothie queen think? This blender is awesome. From the compact size to the spout I'm in love. The true blender test is spinach. If a blender can puree it then you know it's good. Basically if you can't see any dark leaves then you have a winner. Trust me all blenders are not created. The best part -- this bad boy is only $35! Not only will you get a great smoothie blender, but you wont break the bank. #winning

The blender comes with a few pre-set settings -- milkshake, smoothie & salsa. This takes the guess work out of blending. A feature I've come to love. When things are a bit thicker there's a spoon/wand to help move things around without having to stop the blender and give a shake or two. Been there done that. 

All in all the wave-action is a great blender at it's price point. I see a number of smoothies/juice, salsa and maybe even pesto in my near future


Of course, I can't talk about smoothies/ juice without sharing one with you. I whipped up this yummy juice over the weekend.  Enjoy!
