Advantages Makes great tasting smoothies in matter of minutes
Disadvantages Some annoyances in the design
My husband and I had decided the time had come to seriously lose some weight. So we investigated some diets and came up with a combination that we would both feel happy with. One of the ideas was to have smoothies as meal replacements, for instance as a snack for before or after an exercise session. Of course the best smoothies are those you make yourself, as you can make sure it covers three important aspects i.e. tasty, nutritious and importantly fills you up. Of course we were lacking one important factor in smoothie making - a smoothie maker. So I did some research and found this one going at a nice price on the Tesco's Website. Of course, now I come to look for it, they don't have it any more, but it was under £30. You can get it on the Amazon website now for £37.40.What I found great about it, once we'd received, washed and set it up, was that all you need to do is put in your fruit, milk/yoghurt
Of course there is a bit more to it than that. You do need to practice to get it perfect. And while I found the smoothies to be a nice thick consistency for me, my husband was always complaining it was too thick until we ran out of yoghurt, so I made it with milk and icecubes instead. But that is too be expected with many things of this nature, and trial and error can actually be more fun than getting it right first time. And it's nice to try different ingredients, although I am reliably informed that salmon smoothies don't work. However recipes are provided that you can use, and there are many books that offer smoothie recipes.What it consists of:
1.8 Litre jug
Great for making smoothies for two people. Could make for more, but maximum three or four relatively decent size smoothies.
Plenty of warnings about the sharpness of the blades in the in the instructions, but so long as you're not letting a child handle it, and exercise reasonable care, these shouldn't pose a safety problem.
This of course contains the motor, and should be treated with same amount of care as you give to all electrical items. To clean wipe it down with a damp cloth, taking care not to douse it in water. (Well, of course.) Due to the liquid nature of smoothies, it naturally does have some protection against shortage caused by spillages.
