A few friends of mine own Breville Blend Active Blenders and have said how great they are. I've been thinking about investing in one for a while and when I saw it was only £20 on amazon I decided to treat myself. It arrived a couple of days later and I couldn't wait to try it out. It's so simple to use, you just fill the bottle with whatever ingredients you want, screw on the blade and lock it in to the base then away you go.
When I first started this blog I posted about my love of smoothies and said I wanted to start adding some greens to them. Recently I've been doing just that. Of course my first smoothie with my new blender contained some spinach.
For this smoothie I used:
I popped as much of the above as I could cram into the bottle and then blended it all together. The great thing about these bottles is that once you've blended it you can just unscrew the blade and screw on a lid and off you go. But seeing as I wasn't going anywhere with my smoothie I decided to pour mine into one of my lovely mason jars (any excuse to use them, really).
Doesn't that look delicious? And you'd never know there was any spinach in it. So good!
