If your blender is gathering dust in a lonely corner of your kitchen cupboard, here’s a good reason for you to show it some love. On Saturday, December 7 from 12:30 to 1:30 PM natural foods chef Christine M. Okezie will give a free culinary nutrition demonstration. The event will take place in Bloomingdales at the shops at Riverside Square.
Christine will highlight her personal favorite kitchen appliance – the Vitamix Blender – and show us how to whip up delicious blended concoctions including a green detox smoothie, chai latte smoothie, roasted kabocha squash and apple soup, guilt-free pumpkin cheesecake, and strawberry icecream.
Because blenders are so strongly associated with fruit and veggie smoothies, it’s easy to forget that they are versatile culinary tools that can be used to churn out anything from soups to decadent desserts. This will be a great event for expanding your kitchen appliance know-how and adding a few tasty recipes to your repertoire.
