We all know that it's a good idea to eat a colourful diet. But, it's not always easy to pack in all that glorious fruit and veg. Having a highly efficient blender makes it easier to eat a wider variety and you get to admire all the beautiful colours you create.
Vegetables are full of micronutrients. They're often low in calories and high in valuable fibre that the body needs. Fruits are a powerhouse of energy and bursting with vitamins and minerals. Blues, reds, greens, yellows all bring their own benefits, so try making vibrant blends that your body will love.
Blend your way around the clock with an excellent multi-use blender. Here are some ideas to get your taste buds tingling from morning til night:
07:45: Sweet potato pancakes
11:00: Banana blueberry bread

Vegan food is big news and you can enjoy its delights even if you're not a fully fledged vegan. Make your own vegan seasoning in a food blender to add some oomph to your dishes every day.
Try 3/4 cup of cashews, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 cup of nutritional yeast, 1 tsp mustard seeds, salt and pepper to taste. We like to add a bit of cumin too.
Grind in a blender at a slow speed until it's about the consistency of parmesan cheese.
That's it! You can use this in just about everything to add depth with a cheesy, nutty flavour.

Blending your own smoothies at home is a fast-track to a healthier daily diet. You can pack in fruit, vegetables, nuts, grains and pulses and create something delicious in seconds. All our electric blenders are amazing smoothie makers, but the Blender K150, with its special ice crush setting, is our smoothie maker extraordinaire.
For many of us, ice cream makes it to the top of our list of favourite foods. You don't need an ice cream maker to whiz up your own.
It's fun to make ice cream in a food blender and means you can perfectly suit your taste. All you need is milk, ice, sugar and flavouring like cocoa powder, vanilla extract, orange zest, berries or bananas. Experiment with milk powder or whipping cream if you like it thick. Voilà! Your own brand of homemade ice cream.
Freshly made sauces lift any meal or snack. Our favourites to make at home with an blender include tzatziki, pesto and watercress sauce. All of them look satisfyingly green and are packed with goodness for mind and body.
Why not switch up your shop-purchased sauces and dips for homemade versions? You'll really taste the difference. Save time by making big batches and then store the leftovers in mini containers.
Making your own baby food means you know exactly what's in it. You're in control of the taste, ingredients, texture and amount, so it's that's just right for your baby.
All our KitchenAid blenders will create the perfect purée for feeding your little one. The Blender K400 - Artisan, however, gives you the option of BPA-free 200ml small batch jars, just the right size for storing baby portions. Choose the small batch jars with blade assembly, and you can even blend your purée straight into the jar.
Soup is a great way to squeeze (or even hide) lots of nutrition-packed ingredients into a meal. If you use a blender, you can throw in all sorts of tough, or fibrous, foods and still get a beautifully smooth texture that everyone will love.
Choose our Blender Power Plus - Artisan and, thanks to its exclusive Thermal Control Jar, you can not only blend, but heat soup too, in just five minutes! A great way to make a healthy meal at home in no time.
Try kick-starting your day with a smoothie for breakfast. Whizz up a smoothie in the blender processor for a healthy and delicious creation in seconds. As well as classic ingredients like strawberries, honey or bananas, you can experiment with nuts, leafy veggies and herbs too.
