There are many reasons to start creating your own recipes, from making use of extra food in the fridge that would otherwise go to waste to picking ingredients that support better health. Some people are naturally confident and inventive with a knack for pairing flavors, but the good news is a BlendJet portable blender empowers everyone to make yum without fear, without boundaries — and without making a mess.

To become a skilled BlendJet recipe creator: be brave, start with something you know (like cocktails or salad dressings) and always keep an eye out for inspiration (our BlendJet Recipes Facebook Group is a great place to start).

We created a BlendJet recipe challenge to encourage playfulness in the kitchen. Meet the five winning creators from our latest contest. We hope they’ll move you to make your own new favorite recipes and share them in our Facebook Recipes Group.
