Throwing a couple of ice cubes into smoothie maker, or using frozen fruit, makes your smoothie even thicker, frothier and, of course, refreshingly chilly. Luckily our K150 powers through ice. But what else can it do?

When you think of smoothies at home, the most obvious ingredients are things like bananas and strawberries. As you become a more confident maker, you can use all sorts of ingredients in your Blender K150. Try to buy nutrient-packed leafy greens, such as kale or mint, as well as harder ingredients like nuts, seeds and even frozen fruits. Be bold and enjoy the results.
Our range of blenders can handle whatever tough ingredients you want to throw in, giving you beautiful, lump-free smoothies. They make light work of fruit skins, fibrous veggies and nutritious seeds (including tiny raspberry seeds!). Even crushing ice cubes is no problem, with velvety results in seconds. If you've never tried a robust blender with advanced features before, then you'll be surprised by what you can do.
Here's how to fill your jar:
2) sweeteners (if any)
3) leafy greens
4) soft ingredients
5) fruit and veg, nuts, seeds and grains
6) frozen ingredients and ice cubes
Blenders create a powerful vortex to break down ingredients for consistent results. Our Blender K150 has a soft-start feature, which begins the motor at a slower speed and then quickly increases, to avoid splatter. The durable plastic base is easy to wipe clean and the BPA-free jar and lid are dishwasher-safe. What could be simpler?
Some makers like to opt for a small blender, or ‘personal blender’. This can certainly be handy for small households. However, blenders have a more generous capacity, allowing you to batch blend, saving lots of time and giving you the power and stability to handle anything.
Our Blender K150 gives you the benefits of both big and small, with an optional personal jar, which you can blend into directly, into for an easy-sip solution when you're on the go.
You don't have to add milk to smoothies, but, when whizzed up in a smoothie maker, 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 machine at home, you can make your own! Try any of these: almond milk, rice milk, oat milk, coconut milk or coconut water.
Like to blend 'n' go? Whether you're off to the gym, doing sports or just like to travel, the Blender K150's optional 500ml personal jar is perfect for taking out and about. Its easy-drink lid is securely designed so you can pop the jar in your bag and not worry about leaking.
The Blender K150 has three speeds, plus an ice crush / pulse setting. Just turn the dial to get the speed you need for a smoothie that’s just the way you like it. The soft-start function starts blending at a slow speed to gently pull the ingredients into the blades, before it speeds up. The Intelli-Speed motor control actually senses the ingredients inside the jar and adjusts the RPM accordingly. Clever stuff.
If you’re used to making smoothies in a jug, or in cups, with a hand blender (stick or immersion blender), then you’ll enjoy the upgrade to a bigger blender. It’s fast and efficient, creating a powerful vortex in the optimally-designed and securely sealed jar. You have bigger capacity too - so you can make more of your favourite smoothie drinks to keep for later. You can transfer into handy size cups, or into our personal jars, and pop in the fridge, or freezer.
As well as smoothies, you can make fresh juice in your blender. It's handy 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.
