Cooking Tip Tuesday: The best way to clean your blender

I love my blender. But cleaning it can be a pain in the butt! Especially when I’ve made a salsa, pesto or other thick sauce in it. 

Trying to manuever my awkwardly shaped sponge wand under the blades to get them clean can be unsuccessful. And, if I don’t get it totally clean, my next 3 smoothies take on a hint of onion or garlic. 🤢

That is, until I discovered this hack!

Follow these simple steps and your blender will be clean and back to neutral in no time:

  1. Rinse it immediately after using.
  2. Add hot water, and a squirt of dish soap.
  3. Put the lid back on your blender, put your blender on the blender base and give her a whir. 
  4. Remove blender from base, remove the lid, pour out soapy water and rinse well. 

VOILA! A clean blender!
