George Smoothie Maker (by Asda)

Recently we have been drinking more smoothies in our drive to increase our fruit and vegetable intake. I can now safely say that we take much more than 5 portions of fruits and veg a day. But as I felt that the Magic Bullet blender I bought many years ago was showing its age and not able to blend the smoothie as fine as I would like, I had to look for an alternative. Hence I bought the George Smoothie Maker (or Twist and go blender) from Asda for £15. I also bought an extra 2 bottles at £3 each for each of my daughters.

The bottle is BPA free and is very easy to clean. There are markings on it to guide how much to fill.

What do I like about this?

  1. Great price and it works very well – even better than my old Magic Bullet.
  2. The fact it has a lid means I can shake the smoothie up prior to drinking, as the pulp tends to settle on the top after a while.
  3. Easy to clean and made from BPA free plastic.

What could be improved?

  1. There are times when twisting the bottle onto the motor base does not seem to set it moving, and I have had to do it again.

I can now see why many people have a smoothie maker, as it allows for healthy living, even when going to the gym. Highly recommended.
