HEALTHY SMOOTHIES WITH BREVILLE


I've been trying to get Amelia to eat fruit for the longest time now. Up until around 10 months ago she would eat strawberries and bananas until one day she decided she no longer liked them and she hasn't touched them since. I've always had a tough time getting her to eat lunch and dinner and have been looking at ways to encourage her to eat better. We were recently sent the Breville Blend Active Family Pack to test out and I thought it would be a good way to try and incorporate fruit into Amelia's diet. 



The Breville Blend Active Family Pack is perfect for healthy families on the go unlike the original Blend-Active the family pack included four bottles in two different sizes for the whole family. The individual sized sports bottle give you one person portion fruit smoothies, breakfast drinks, protein drinks and slush ice juices with one touch of a button! The family pack allows the whole family to take the Blend-Active out on the go to work, the gym, the school run or even to enjoy healthy drinks at home.
 

The Breville Blend-Active is quick and easy to use.. you simply pop your favourite ingredients into the sports bottle and attach the blade cap to the top. The one touch action means you just pop the bottle onto the base of the machine, twist to lock and then press the button to blend your drink and it's ready in seconds! You can blend to your liking for your required consistency and replace the blade lid with the leak-proof lid to take with you where ever you go.

The blade made be small but it is most certainly very powerful allowing you to crush ice and even chop tough fruit and nuts meaning you can create delicious thick drinks or smoothies. I found the Blend-Active really simple to use and its very time efficient especially for getting out the door quickly in the mornings.


What I love the most about the Blend-Active is the fact that it's easy to wash and doesn't take up a lot of room on the kitchen counter. After use I can simply throw the bottles in the dishwasher and put the blender out of the way. My old smoothie maker was a nightmare to clean as I could never get to the blade at the bottom of the jar where as with the blade being on a separate fitting it's far easier to clean. 


I was really surprised when Amelia took a sip of the smoothie I made, I honestly didn't think she would as she turns her nose up at everything new I offer her unless it's crisps or chocolate. She even drank the whole smoothie which was such a relief as it means she is finally getting some fruit into her diet. Her favourite seems to be banana and blueberries which I have made a handful of times for her name and she also enjoys my slush drinks too. If this is the only way I can get fruit into her diet I will definitely be making a smoothie a day for her and the Blend-Active family pack is great for allowing us to make smoothies for everyone. 

I would highly recommend the Breville Blend-Active to any family or individual who loves smoothies and healthy drinks on the go especially if you are looking for a compact machine. The Blend-Active family pack is available to purchase here and is currently on offer for just £29.99!

  2. Great idea and a tricky way to sneak some goodness into them! I've often despaired of Wonderboy - I spent hours and hours when he was little making all sorts of homemade purees and foods to make sure he grew up used to healthy food. Now he's 3 and has actually turned out quite picky! Argh!

    Will definitely try this x
