I am a huge fan of the Oster brand. Oster products are known for legendary performance and are designed to last. This has proven true in my experience with the brand. I have been using the same Oster blender for over 10 years. It has a sleek design and quality feel that continues to quickly blend smoothies, food purees, and much more. Therefore, when I was given the opportunity to test out the new Oster Pro 1200 Plus Food Processor, I was excited to see what it could do!
The Oster Pro 1200 Plus Food Processor includes an extra large 8-cup BPA-free TRITAN™ Jar that’s dishwasher safe and impact and temperature resistant, an extra large capacity 5-cup Food Processing Bowl, stainless steel slicing disk, and a chopping blade. The Oster Pro 1200 Plus Food Processor has impressed myself and my husband in many ways. It’s 1200 power watts and 900 watts of ice crushing power combined with a pulse feature has proven to blend with a precision I have never seen in any blender I have ever used before. You can truly see the ingredients fly up in the jar as the blender pulses. When making smoothies, we don’t use an exact recipe but our smoothie recipe tends to be made up of these ingredients:
- 5oz of any flavor greek yogurt
- 1 large banana or 2 small/medium bananas
- 1 cup strawberries
- 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 mango, or 1 kiwi (choose one of these -we simply choose whichever we have on hand that day)
- 16 oz cup of ice (we simply take a 16 cup and fill it with ice from the refrigerator ice dispenser.
- Add 1 Tablespoon ground organic flax seed if desired (This is a great way to sneak Omega-3 essential fatty acids into your family’s diet)
This recipe yields 3 to 4 large smoothies. The extra large base allows the ice, yogurt, and fruit to easily reach the blades of the Oster Pro 1200 so it blends the ingredients into the smoothest cold drink my family simply can’t get enough of. Since we got the Oster Pro 1200 smoothies have become an evening ritual in our house.
Banana Strawberry Blueberry Smoothies and a movie. Life is good.
The Food Processor works great to create a carrot puree if you want to add carrots to your smoothies. Our favorite use of the Oster Pro 1200 Food Processor is to make almond butter. Spread 3 cups of almonds on a cookie sheet or pizza pan and bake for 10 minutes at 250 degrees. Then place them inside the food processor and blend at medium speed until the almonds become a creamy butter.
The food processor with chop up the almonds and turn them into a powder. You will need to stir periodically until the almonds reach that desired creamy texture. Three cups of almonds will blend into about 1 1/4 cups almond butter. We store our almond butter in the refrigerator inside a mason jar but any sealed container will do.
You can’t beat almond butter on toast and a Banana Strawberry Mango Smoothies for breakfast!
