From green to grains
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.
Power at your fingertips
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.
How to layer your smoothie
It's not just a matter of throwing the ingredients into your smoothie machine. The way they're layered has an impact on the final taste and texture in your cup.
Here's how to fill your jar:
sweeteners (if any)
fruit and veg, nuts, seeds and grains
frozen ingredients and ice cubes
No need to worry about the mess
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?
Tips for making delicious smoothies
Here are our tips for making irresistible mixtures in your smoothie maker
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!
It's the little touches that will take your homemade smoothies up a level.
What about a personal blender?
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.
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, pick options outside of your usual favourites and enjoy 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.
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.
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 broccoli.
Blue & purple
Gorgeous dark-coloured foods like purple cabbage, blackberries or eggplants are loaded with healing antioxidants for glowing skin. Plus, they look beautiful in your cup!
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, 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.
Smoothies on the go
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.
Choosing your settings is as easy as 1, 2, 3
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.
A new day, a fresh blend
There are hundreds of wonderful ingredient combinations to experiment with in your smoothie maker with all its great features. Whether you're looking for a nutrition-packed hit, or a delicious cool summer drink.
Here are just a few recipes to try.
Upgrade from your jug
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.
Whiz up a juice in a blender
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.
