Well, it happened. A sad day in this house. My blender died. I suppose it had to happen eventually. It was several years old and had many miles on it. I wasn't going to run out and buy a new one right away but my girls wanted a smoothie so I improvised. I combined all the smoothie ingredients in a large pitcher and blended it up with my immersion blender. It worked very well. I don't think you could do this if you were including ice but since ours was just yogurt, milk, and fruit it was easy peasy.
