Cleaning the BlendTec is easy too. I was expecting the big splash of water after taking it out of the dishwasher, but they have drain holes in the base so when it's upside down, it's not holding any of the water that hits it. 3 parts, and 2 of those are the top.
My new favorite smoothie (for now at least)...
frozen strawberries (about 6-8)
fresh strawberries (about 8-10)
1/2 cup coconut water (sometimes I use chocolate coconut water)
1/2 frozen banana (I freeze bananas that are getting too ripe instead of trashing them. Peel and cut in half first!)
1/2 - 2/3 a plastic Solo cup of ice
1 tablespoon hemp hearts
Blend on Smoothie selection till done
