Look what has arrived!! My Breville Active blender. I was super happy to receive it and eager to open it as I have been wanting one for quite some time now. I was very satisfied with it, especially as it comes with two bottles, which means I don’t have to keep washing the same one and I can have two in one day, maybe at breakfast and one through the day.

So today I made my first smoothie, which to be honest was dreadful. I wasn’t too sure how much of each to put product to put it, so I did the “guessing game” method. Little did I know afterwards I read the instructions where it already had a page full of directions and ingrediants for smoothies and protein shakes, ah. Now I know though ey haha! I thought that also was really handy for people like me haha. However was getting more and more angry because I kept dropping things all of my floor and the milk came out too quickly, gosh I hate it when that happens, so that too went all over my floor and desk. It wasn’t going too well for my first ever smoothie making session. I thought it would be easier, haha. Then I didn’t understand that you had to turn bottle around before blending, which I find rather annoying because all of the shake goes to the top, so when you can’t the blade off to put the lid on, some of it may still be stuck to the top (although this is because I hadn’t added enough milk/yoghurt argh). After all that my first smoothie tasted GOOD!! Although the bottles are quite thin, I find them a good size for people like me as I don’ eat or drink a lot (Didn’t manage to drink all of the smoothie).

I am looking forward to using these each morning to take too University with me for my breakfast. I found with other blenders, they don’t come with the bottle as the actually blender, you have to pour it in something else but with this one you simply take the blender off and swap it for a lid and there you have it. You then don’t have the struggles of cleaning the big blender at the bottom, I used to hate doing that!! Anyway, I think smoothies are such a great breakfast because they are fast and they ensure that you are getting a healthy and balanced breakfast because… breakfast is the most important meal of the day 😉 says adults. I do feel much better throughout the day if I have had something for breakfast though, so maybe it’s true. I would definitely advice anyone who likes smoothies and wants a blender to purchase this one or one like it!

I used:
– Frozen berries, cherries & grapes
– 1 copped banana
– “Handful of ice”
– Quarter pint of milk (had no yoghurt)
– Porridge oats

My favourite part is… It came out a pink colour!!!

      • I do! 🙂 I really love ones with a bunch of berries since it just adds a lot more flavour! I’ve tried to add banana, since many recipes use them, but I’ve felt like it just drowns all the flavour out! I’m looking forward to trying more recipes soon! 🙂
