non-electric alternative to blender

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have some frozen melon chunks and strawberries that I'd like to thaw and use in smoothies. However, I'd rather not add another appliance to my countertop, especially one that needs hand cleaning. Best for me is something I can use and put in the dishwasher.

 

Do you think a potato ricer would be up to this task? I should add that I will never want kale in my smoothie, that I only need one serving at a time, and that I don't care if the drink is really smooth. I just don't want a huge battle with the fruit.

Food mill would be better than a ricer I think. Or you can just force them through a fine mesh sieve.

What about a mortar & pestle?
