Blend Beverages

Buy ingredients for blended beverages such as milkshakes, fruit smoothies and frozen cocktails. For a milkshake, fill the tall cup with ice-cream, pour milk till it covers half of the ice-cream, blend till smooth. Fruit smoothies need a tall cup filled with washed and chopped fruit; fill to the cover half with milk, juice or water, add a table spoon of sugar and blend till smooth. Cocktails are made by filling the tall cup with ice, cocktail mixing juice and a shot of your desired liquor. Blend till smooth.

Make Your Own Sauces

Create your own sauces such as tomato sauce for pasta and salsa for Mexican food. For tomato sauce, use the tall cup to fill with whole peeled tomatoes from a can, add half an onion, oregano, a pinch of salt, half a cup of water and a tablespoon of olive oil. Blend till smooth. This can also be made in advance and frozen. For salsa, fill the tall cup with fresh cherry tomatoes, onion, one small fresh jalapeno pepper, a pinch of both salt and pepper and three table spoons of water. Blend until chunky.

Make Soups

Make tasty natural soups such as creamy tomato or vegetable. Buy basic ingredients such as potatoes, onion, carrots, celery and tomatoes. Place veggies in a pot and fill with water till covered by 1 inch. Boil until tender when pierced with a fork. Keep the boiled water but take out the vegetables and let cool for five minutes. Place in tall cup and add a bit of salt, herbs, and half a cup of water from the stock or cream depending on desired soup then blend.

Create Baby Food

Homemade baby food is easy to make with the Magic Bullet. Follow pediatrician recommendations for the baby's food based on its age and individual development. For applesauce and vegetables, boil peeled till tender, let cool and blend with some of its natural juice in the tall cup. Strain to take out any large pieces of pulp. Let it cool completely before feeding to the baby.
