Love your blender (even more!)
I’ve been into smoothies for a few years now and I love them for breakfast or after an intense workout. I started with Kimberley Snider’s Glowing Green Smoothie and its addition to my daily routine felt amazing.
The only problem I had was falling into the green smoothie rut. Knowing what I liked, I would tend to go for the same fruits & veg most of the time and my smoothie drinking has gone up and down because sometimes I got bored of the flavour.
So, when I was exploring Be:Fit a few weeks ago and came across Love Your Blender, I was intrigued and excited.
Love Your Blender makes single-serving sachets of nutrient-packed smoothie additions. It’s ridiculously simple: choose your flavour of smoothie and the sachet to add, toss it in the blender with the rest of your ingredients and Voila! Even tastier smoothie with more nutrients.
I walked away with a sample of each of their five flavours after trying a sample of their Sweet Lacuma mix. I can’t even describe how yummy this was!! I’d never heard of lucuma before (maybe I was living under a heath-food rock) but I’m it’s new biggest fan. It’s got the sweetness that satisfies my sweet tooth but without being over-the-top and the sachet is a powerful and filling combination of nuts, seeds and berries.
Each sachet comes with recipe suggestions depending on whether you want a more intense or mild taste, or you can play around with your own. They were all so different and added a huge variety to my usual smoothie routine, one packet of each just wasn’t enough. My favourite is still probably the Sweet Lacuma but I also loved the Cherry Rose (milky version) and Bright Greens… Oh you just need to try them and pick your own favourite, they’re great!
Luckily for us, fit & happy readers have the chance to win a full set of their flavours. Just head on over to my brand-spanking-new competitions page to enter! The competition closes on the 5th June, so be quick.
