Making a refreshing drink is often a good idea on hot summer days like these. Soda may be blended with fruits to create a range of beverages and be tastier.
When making some drinking recipes, you will need the help of a blender. Please look at my recipes below to learn how to prepare cool fruit soda with your friends this holiday season and unlock some questions relating to Soda and blender.
Can you put soda in a blender?
“Can you put soda in a blender?” some people wonder. The answer is “Yes.” Putting Soda in a blender, on the other hand, is not a popular drink recipe. Instead, most people combine Soda with juice to make summer cooling smoothies. After blending the fruit, the juice will be filtered with a sieve to remove the residue, and then pour soda water into a glass with ice cubes.
However, there are still some delicious and strange recipes that you can try when you put Soda in a blender and mix all ingredients. One of my favorite drinks is the Berry Summer Fruit Slush. Let’s find out how to make this fresh beverage!
Ingredients: We’ll get roughly 720ml of juice from a flowing amount of these ingredients, which is plenty for two people to enjoy.
- 120 ml orange juice
- Agave nectar
- 240 ml soda
- 70g frozen blackberry
- 70g frozen blueberry
- 60 frozen raspberries
- Freeze some ingredients if you just bought them: blackberry, blueberry, raspberry.
- Then cut oranges and squeeze out the juice.
- Put the ingredients in order from top to bottom into the pitcher. Remember to add a little lemon juice.
- Some blenders have a pre-programmed mode. So you can choose a suitable program with just one touch. If you do not want to use the preset function, you can use a blender and adjust from medium to high. Then, it works for 20 seconds in combination with the tamper.
- Then pour into a glass and enjoy
In addition, there are several questions people often ask regarding this issue.
Will Soda Explode In A Blender?
When putting Soda in the blender, many people fear this situation. However, I tested it and found it to be very safe. When you pulverize Soda with other ingredients in a blender, it will not explode, but it will produce a bubbly and frothy result that will not damage you.
Can You Blend Soda And Ice?
Yes, you may combine Soda and ice without negative consequences. Soda and ice are blended to create the Slurpee drink without shaking ice bags with your hands.
What should not be put in the blender?
Here, I also want to introduce a few things that we should not put in the blender. It may help extend the durability of your blender effectively after my sharing.
- Hot soup liquid:
A hot soup pre-programmed function is available on several modern blenders. Since we can heat and blend the soup simultaneously, women can make a bowl of soup in less time without needing to heat it thoroughly before pulverizing.
However, if you put hot and smokey soup in the blender, the pressure inside will increase, and the lid may explode, spilling the soup due to the high rate of evaporation of hot water. Moreover, some blenders with low-quality plastic pitchers produce contaminants when reacting to hot food.
- Big ice cubes and frozen foods:
When you put large ice cubes or frozen meals in the blender, the blade and the machine’s durability will suffer. The food is not pureed, but it is also simple to damage and distort blades, especially with low-power blenders. Use a small amount of them when blending or breaking into smaller pieces first.
- Whole-grain seeds:
As you can see, if the jar is too big while the seeds are too small or too large, it will negatively affect the blender, and the product will not be as expected. These ingredients are difficult to grind into a fine powder.
- Crabs with shells
Crabs shells are hard to a blender; thus, putting them in a blender would most likely fracture the blade. At the same time, the crab shell will become trapped, preventing the blades from rotating. As a result, there is a high chance of electric shock damaging the equipment. Instead, crabs are best processed by placing them in a dish and carefully pounding them with a pestle.
Tips for cleaning blender with baking soda
There may be issues such as cleaning the blender while grinding turmeric and the easy-to-handle objects after blending. If you do not know how to clean your blender correctly, it will be covered with the yellow hue of turmeric, bringing you a lot of problems. These decrease the appealing appearance of your blender and affect your health.
In particular, strong-smelling foods may linger in the blender. If you are grinding foods with strong odors, mix baking Soda and water in a 1:1 ratio in the blender after using. Then leave the solution in the blender for 5 to 10 minutes before cleaning it.
Soda may be incredibly refreshing, and it is also safe to know that when mixed with other ingredients to form a Slurpee. But, as you know, every meal and drink has its essence.
However, if you do not know how to make it properly, you will never be able to make a perfect drink. Likewise, many recipes need the use of a blender, but it does not mean that all ingredients are suitable. So, be careful before putting something in the blender.
