Years ago, our grandmothers had creative re-purposing uses for everything. One of those brilliant tips has somehow been lost on my generation, and I feel it’s my duty to get you as excited about this as I am.
The Magic Bullet has been a “As seen on TV” craze for years. I am sure that our elders are chuckling at us when they know that the Magic Bullet can be the easiest DIY project ever by just cleverly re-purposing an every day item.
Create your own “DIY Party Bar” by using a small mouth mason jar and attaching it right to your blender in place of your typical blender jar. You heard me correctly. Use your own Mason Jar Blender and create SO many fun drink concoctions in your own personal size blender.
Our family uses our blender probably five times a week, but we always run into the problem of trying to decide which kinds of smoothies and frozen drink to create. With five children, everyone has their own preference. This has been so much fun because everyone grabs their own mason jar and creates their perfect gourmet drink. The kids love non alcoholic Strawberry Margaritas and Pina Coladas and now they can have both with out the clean up hassle.
Not only is this perfect for smoothies and drinks, but it can also be used to make whip cream right in the jar, grind up coffee beans or even spices in a pinch.
Most blender bases screw into any standard sized Mason Jars (not the wide mouth versions), so first remove the base from the regular blender container. Screw on the base (with the seal) to the mason jar, making sure it’s tight. Then, invert the jar and place on the blender Use as you would any blender, food processor or grinder.
I can’t wait to create a festive DIY Party Bar for our next large gathering. I have purchased a ton of mason jars lately because they are just fun for everything, especially serving drinks. I’ll have a variety of fruits, slushie flavors, coffees, drink mixes, ice cream and ice, allowing people to get as creative as they desire, and I know this will soon become a fabulous, new party tradition.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with. If you need ideas, check out my Magic Bullet Recipes and Snack Ideas page, but don’t worry, now you have the perfect DIY Magic Bullet capabilities right at your own finger tips.
