Blending Up a Storm

Back at the beginning of the year, I vowed to improve my diet and become a little fitter. I always find that studying and living on a budget means eating healthily is often easier said than done.

To motivate myself, I invested in a Philips Daily Collection Mini Blender. It was only £50 and came with a blend-and-go bottle, which I hoped would encourage me to get on the smoothie bandwagon, taking something healthy to the library and my early morning lectures.

To say it’s become an obsession is an understatement and it’s inspired me to make sure my fruit and veg supplies are always topped up too. The multi chopper accessory is great for slicing onions, peppers and all sorts of vegetables, making dinner time a little easier too…I’ve even used it to make soup!

The blender itself is compact and fits really nicely on the work surface, without taking too much space. The only problem I’ve had is trying to stop my flatmates from stealing my smoothie bottle!

Another benefit I’ve seen is that I’m definitely drinking more water. When I’m done with my smoothie, I tend to rinse my bottle and fill it up from the tap a few times a day too.

If you’re not getting your five-a-day, I’d certainly recommend you get a Mini Blender for yourself! Why not try blending up your own storm in the kitchen?
