May reviews Kenwood Smoothie 2Go

It’s not very often that I get excited about a kitchen gadget.  If I do, it usually turns out to be a short-lived love affair (hello, pineapple corer, ice-cream maker...), but I really, really like my smoothie maker.

For someone who quite likes fruit, and knows it’s good for you, I hadn’t been eating nearly enough of it for ages.  When I want a snack, I just can’t say no to chocolate.
As soon as I bought the Kenwood Smoothie2Go I knew I was on to a winner. It is SO easy to throw in some fresh or frozen fruit and some orange juice (I’m sure you can use milk, but I’m not a fan), pop the blade on, shove it on the, er, whizzy bit, and blend away. It only takes a few seconds and once you’re done you can just swap the blade for a lid if you need to run out of the door with it. 

My favourite recipe (if you can call it that) is half a banana, some frozen berries and mango and a glug of orange juice.  I usually make enough for 2 and save one in the fridge for the next morning.  The smoothie maker comes with 2 travel mugs.
When it comes to clearing up, the blade doesn’t need much more than a rinse under the tap and the rest can go in the dishwasher.  Can’t say much fairer than that I reckon, and it means that I have used it A LOT since buying it and have never eaten as much fruit as I do now.
The negatives?  Honestly, the only one I can think of is that it isn’t brilliant at blitzing up the tiny seeds on strawberries and the like.  Considering it only cost £20-something, and is so easy to use, I’m not going to argue!

A quick note from Mack: I have to say that since May purchased this Kenwood smoothie maker, I have been impressed with her daily commitment to making amazing smoothies.  She says its all down to the how easy the smoothie maker is to use.  However, I have one question...if you get 2 travel mugs May, how come you haven't made one for me to sample?
