The Large amount of friction caused by the blades spinning so fast in a small confined space allows for the Blendtec, Vitamix, NutriBullet, and a few other high end blenders to cook soup recipes.
Blendtec Recipes, Vitamix Recipes, NutriBullet Recipes, and Ninja Blender Recipes all include many types of Soups, Syrups, and Fonudes in the Blender Cook Books which come inside the blender box. Soup recipes are quick to make and are a healthy meal or snack.

Fondues: (Melted Cheese) Make a fondue quickly, and pour it over your french fries or nachos.
How can a blender grind grains?
Because of the more advanced designs on the high end blenders such as Blendtec and Vitamix, the blades don’t just spin everything around, they push the ingredients into the sides of the jar or pull the ingredients down into the blades. These two designs makes for higher quality blends because everything in the jar has to go through the blades and there is no chunks and pieces left behind.
If you use a dry blender jar you can grind any types of seeds, nuts, beans, meats, or any dry grains inside the jar and it will turn into flours and powders.
- Moisture or water can damage the consistency of your flours and powders so make sure your jar is completely dry when you grind grains.
- Add in your grains, nuts, seeds, or beans (1 to 4 cups).
- The speed you run the blender and the duration of time you let the blender run, will determine if the consistency is light and fluffy or heavy and dense. For finer fluffy textures run the blender longer on a high speed, for more dense textures run the blender on a low speed for a shorter period of time.
Seeds, Nuts, Grains, and Beans can quickly be milled into a fine powder or flour:
- Grinding Coffee Beans into coffee Powder
- Grinding Rice into Rice Flour
- Grinding PopCorn into Corn Meal
- Grinding Granulated Sugar into Powder Sugar
- Grinding Wheat Berries into Wheat Flour
- Grinding Flax Seeds into Flax Meal
