Why should you be blending your fruits and veg? 

It’s quick and easy to blend up your favourite fruit, nuts and other ingredients, and the effects are long-lasting. When you drink fresh smoothies, highly concentrated vitamins, minerals and enzymes rapidly enter the bloodstream absorbing all of the nutritional benefits of the fruit and vegetables, giving your digestive organs a much-needed rest.

Blenders we recommend?

Opt for a blender that will make preparations as simple as possible.

Try the Philips Viva Collection Blender with an on-the-go bottle accessory. This blender, with ProBlend 6 technology blends smoothly and crushes ice. This gives you finer blending which means you can enjoy healthier smoothies that provide a full day’s nutrients from fruit to vegetables. To top this off, all detachable parts of your Philips blender are dishwasher safe. Retailing price R1500.00.

The Kambrook Glass Jug Blender 500W comes with stainless steel blades and 3 speed settings for the smoothest blending. It can even be used to crush ice for smoothies for R409.00

Russell Hobbs Satin Blender 1.75 Litres works with a powerful 1000W motor and comes with 5 speed settings to deliver the smoothest blending yet. Also features detachable stainless steel blades and a huge 1.75L glass jug. Retailing price R999.00

But don't be misled, not all smoothies are the same. For instance, due to the high sugar levels in fruit, large quantities of fruit are bad for you and could cause you to gain weight. So, when adding smoothies to your daily routine, choose vegetables over fruit, which offer a fantastic source of minerals and vitamins without the added sugar.
