Tess Masters is an Australian actor, presenter, voice over artist, cook, writer, and green maven living in Los Angeles, CA.
Her alter-ego, “The Blender Girl” writes the wildly popular recipe blog, Healthy Blender Recipes, where she shares super quick and easy vegetarian, vegan, and raw recipes that can be made by anybody in a blender, mixer, or food processor. She tests many of her recipes with children!
These healthy, allergy-free recipes that utilize whole foods and natural sweeteners are all gluten free, and many are also dairy free, egg free, nut free, and soy free. You can search for recipes for specific diets or food allergies by using the handy clickable icons on the site.
Using blending as a metaphor for life: Tess likes to combine different ideas and concepts; notes and flavors; and philosophies and cultures in order to find a healthy balance for happiness. So “Blend and Live” was born, and she continues to ask the question of her readers, “What’s YOUR Perfect Blend?”
The Blender Girl and her recipes have been featured online at the L.A Times, Glamour, Chow, Epicurious, All Recipes, as well as countless other websites, blogs, and publications around the world. In 2011, the September edition of Zeste Magazine featured Healthy Blender Recipes as one of their top allergy-friendly blogs.
Tess is in high demand as a presenter and recipe developer. In 2012, she partnered with Vitamix, as the face of their online technique and recipe videos, and has also shot videos for Chow.com, Driscoll’s, Crisp Root, and others companies yet to be announced. She has also created recipes for Square One Organics, Sprout Living, the Thrive Alive Foundation, and Way Better Snacks, for whom she was also a brand ambassador.
With a magnetic personality, infectious enthusiasm, and zest for life, Tess’s fun, all-accepting, down-to-earth approach to healthy living has made allergy-friendly plant based foods accessible to omnivores, whole foods skeptics, nervous “greenophobes”, and new health foodies; and celebrated by seasoned vegetarians, vegans, and raw foodists.
In January 2013, Pinterest acknowledged her wide appeal when they featured Tess, along with 29 top celebrities and brands such as Katie Couric, Dr Oz, Paul Deen, TODAY, Starbucks, Anthropologie, Pottery Barn, Southwest Airlines, Patagonia, and Esquire Magazine for their 30 DAYS OF PINSPIRATION campaign that was seen by millions around the world. Since then, the offers have been rolling in!
