Smoothie makers for a healthy lifestyle

If you're a fan of fruit smoothies for breakfast, post-workout energy smoothies or green smoothies for lunch, you can find a smoothie maker to suit you. Smoothies can replace an entire meal and are great for those on-the-go days.

Meet our star smoothie blender

With its sturdy die-cast metal base, Intelli-Speed control, generous 1.75L diamond-shaped jar and pulse feature, the Diamond Blender is perfect for whizzing up smoothies.

Looking stylish in your kitchen

When you choose a smoothie blender, go for one that matches your decor or creates a bold colour pop - Empire Red, Velvet Blue ... perhaps Almond Cream. Choosing is delicious.

Enjoy a great smoothie maker

Always in a rush? Run out of energy? Want to improve your diet? A great smoothie blender 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. By choosing one that's both powerful and highly efficient, you'll be in control. You can achieve the perfect consistency you're looking for. Break down even flax seeds or pips to a creamy mixture, or leave some bits in there if you like lumps of fruit. The choice is yours.

From green to grains

When you think of smoothies, the most obvious ingredients are things like bananas and strawberries. As you get more confident, you can be more adventurous. Our Diamond Blender is powerful enough to process leafy greens like kale and mint, as well as nuts, seeds and even frozen fruits.

How to layer your smoothie

It's not just a matter of throwing in all the ingredients. The way they're layered has an impact on the final taste and texture.

Here's how to fill your jar:
1) liquids
2) sweeteners (if any)
3) leafy greens
4) soft ingredients
5) fruit and veg, nuts, seeds and grains
6) frozen ingredients and ice cubes

Tips for making delicious smoothies

Here are our tips for making irresistible mixtures in your smoothie blender

  • Liquids can be water, juice, milk, non-dairy milk, coconut water or even tea
  • Bananas are an excellent base and give a sweet taste and natural creaminess
  • Avocado is brilliant for giving you nutrients and a smooth texture
  • Pineapple will give you a big burst of sweet flavour in your smoothie
  • Mango is always a winner as it's refreshing, cool and smooth
  • Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries make attractive red or purple smoothies
  • Frozen fruits are superb because you can add them in handy chunks
  • Nuts and seeds can be thrown in to make it even more nutritious
  • You can freeze your own fruits rather than choosing supermarket packets
  • If you're adding greens then young leaves are less bitter rather than mature
  • Experiment with vanilla, honey, dates, cocoa powder, cinnamon or a little agave syrup!

Drink the rainbow with
a smoothie blender

You've heard of eating the rainbow? Well, now you can drink it.
Vitamins, minerals, fibre, antioxidants ... here's how to get them:

Choose lots of colours

Your smoothie maker is the perfect opportunity to feast on all those seasonal fruits and vegetables the easy way. So choose options beyond your usual favourites and savour the adventure.

Yellow & orange

These fruits and veggies pack a powerful nutritional punch. They're rich in beta carotene, vitamin A and vitamin C, the powerful antioxidants that neutralise the free radicals roaming around inside our bodies, destroying cells.

Green

Greens are rich in phytonutrients that improve our health and are full of fibre. They have alkalising effects on the and promote healthy blood pressure. Leafy greens are high in protein, iron and calcium and cruciferous veggies help the liver to detoxify.

White

Cauliflower is a little exception among white fruit and vegetables. It has many of the nutrients of other cruciferous vegetables like kale, cabbage, bok choy and brocoli.

Blue & purple

Gorgeous dark-coloured foods like purple cabbage, blackberries or eggplants are loaded with healing antioxidants for glowing skin.

Red

Red foods are a good source of folate, which is brilliant for our heart health. Red fruits like strawberries, give us vitamin C too. Red grapes, specifically, have a magic antioxidant which is anti-inflammatory.

Which milk is best for smoothies?

You don't have to add milk to smoothies, but it gives creamier results than juice or water. Cow's milk is popular and full of quality protein, vitamins and minerals.

But, cow's milk isn't a good option for everyone. You can pick up all sorts of non-dairy alternatives and plant-based milks which give you protein, vitamins and enhance that silky texture. Of course, if you have a blender at home, you can make your own! Try any of these: almond milk, rice milk, coconut milk or coconut water, oat milk.

Whiz up a juice in a blender

As well as smoothies, you can make fresh juice in your blender. It’s ideal for squeezing in lots of vitamin C and other nutrients into your day, and giving your body a cleanse and boost.

Add your favourite juicy fruits - like oranges, mangos, green apples or limes - to the blender with a little water. You’ll get lots of fibre (pulp) in the mix, so if that’s not to your taste, then simply strain it through a cheesecloth or similar before serving. You’ll feel glowing.
