Blend my day - Nov 03 2020


Our customers often ask us which blender is best to prepare our tasty smoothies.
In recent years, the amount of blenders on the market has grown considerably
and it is not always easy to find your way around.

  While developing our range of frozen superfood smoothies, 
we tested over 300 recipes and have become blender experts along the way!
Follow the guide below, we have made a great selection just for you. 

First, let’s look at the 5 essential criteria to take into account when choosing your blender.

Power : aim for at least 800W in order to blend frozen fruits, vegs, nuts, dates etc.  

Blades : favour models with 4 or 6 blades with different angle orientations (up /down) and of different types (ridged, rounded etc).

Capacity 700ml or more (our blended smoothies are 500ml).

Type of blender
either “classic” with a large bowl (= several portions per blend) or “compact” with a jar you can take on the go (= 1 portion per blend).

Noise level :
 think of your neighbours and the kids who are still sleeping!

 If you want to become a true “blender master”, don't skimp on quality.
 Choose reputable brands and sturdy products (weight is usually a good indicator).

 You will also have to take into account other criteria such as your budget, size, design, accessories, warranty or other functions (eg: heating for soups).
