Nothing says “summer” more than the tangy, cool blend of creamy Greek yogurt, bananas, strawberries, milk and refreshing ice. One of my guilty pleasures is a strawberry, banana smoothie. I’m pretty sure that this was the first smoothie I tried back in my younger years, when Orange Julius first opened in the local mall. While I still love grabbing a smoothie at Orange Julius, I can easily make them at home with my Hamilton Beach Wave Station Express 54615.
With a 500 watt peak power motor and 9 blending functions, the Wave-Action system continuously pulls mixture down into the blades for a smooth, smoothie experience every single time. Plus, its 48 oz. dishwasher safe DuraBlend jar is large enough to make four 8 oz. smoothies at once – perfect for summer entertaining. In addition to smoothies we have also made coffee frappe, and strawberry milkshakes for our three year old.
The spout is a really nice feature and it also comes with a cap if you do not want to use the spout. We did notice when using the spout that you have to tilt the blender to get all the contents out. It crushes ice well too, but can sometimes take a bit of time. Make sure that the sprout is in the lock position when using or you will end up with milk all over your floor. I learned this the hard way.
If you make a lot of drinks then this would be an excellent blender to have. It’s small, lightweight, easy to use, easy to clean, easy to store, and very affordable.
We are beyond satisfied with the Hamilton Beach Wave Station Express 54615 and have given it Today’s Woman’s seal of approval. If you are looking to make delicious smoothies- Hamilton Beach is the direction to go.
