Dorm Snacks: Mix Up Your Snack Routine
Meet your new best friend. It’s long, slender and vibrates. Plus, it has an ergonomically designed grip for optimum comfort.
You guessed it! It’s the most dorm room-friendly kitchen accessory by Cuisinart, the Smart Stick Hand Blender. Don’t let the price scare you away. The Smart Stick will unleash your inner foodie and be your go-to mixer for dips, soups, smoothies, and pancake batters.
We’ve concocted three delightful uses for the hand blender! Give ‘em a whirl.
Banana, Honey, and Cinnamon Smoothie
You can whip up a breakfast of champions in less than five minutes. Blend 1 chopped banana, ½ cup vanilla or plain yogurt and ½ cup milk until smooth. Add 1 teaspoon of honey and give it one last spin. Pour into a glass and sprinkle cinnamon on top for a kick.
Bacon and Bean Dip
Impress your guests during the next big game. Lightly mix 1 can condensed bean and bacon soup (try Bean with Bacon by Campbell’s), 1 8-ounce container of sour cream, ½-cup shredded cheddar cheese and 1 tablespoon of a finely chopped onion. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and serve with tortillas chips.
Prep instant chocolate pudding in a bowl (follow directions on packaging) and fold in 1 8-ounce container of Cool Whip. Whisk well. Crumble about 15 OREO cookies over the bowl and mix again. Spoon mixture into four cups and top with more OREO pieces and gummy worms. Mmmm, gross.
The Smart Stick Hand Blender retails for $29.95 and can be found at Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, or the Cuisinart website.
