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?
- Great price and it works very well – even better than my old Magic Bullet.
- 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.
- Easy to clean and made from BPA free plastic.
What could be improved?
- 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.
