Kenwood Smoothie 2Go - the Easy Way to Eat Fruit
Member Name: Foodiegirly
Advantages: Cheap, compact, easy to use
Disadvantages: Struggling to think of any
If like me you are not a big fan of fruit and find it a struggle to consume your five a day, then look no further. The Kenwood Smoothie 2Go will zap whatever fruit combination you fancy into a nutritious drink that can be sipped at your leisure.
The Smoothie 2Go is incredibly easy to use. It comes with two large travel mugs with screw on lids that have re-sealable openings to sip the juice etc through. The fruit is piled into the mug, up to the limit on the side. I add water because I am on a diet, but you could use fruit juice, milk, yoghurt or any kind of liquid. The blade attachment is screwed onto the mug, slotted into the main body of the unit and the contents blitzed for about 20 seconds. The mug is then removed from the main unit, the blades unscrewed from it and the lid screwed on, ready to drink the contents :-)
The various components are easy to clean and robust. I wash mine by hand but a friend has been putting hers in the dishwasher for over two years and they still look in pristine condition.
I make up a fruit smoothie every morning in a matter of minutes and take it to work with me. My daughters have used it to make milkshakes and thickshakes (using ice cream). It could also be used for blending soups or purees and I know of others that have used ice and frozen fruit in it - the combinations are endless. All in all it is a versatile and useful appliance to have in your kitchen!
Summary: A wonderful little appliance, so easy to use and worth every penny
