Candy canes and gingerbread and chocolate coins – Oh my. Feeling like your children (hmmm – or yours truely) is over endolging in a few too many Christmas treats? I’ve got a delicious festive ‘green’ smoothie’ for you to start your day with – so you can feel a little better about all those treats. Oh and get 2 of your 5 serves of veggies in early.
The wonderful Lauren from www.bcw-global.com,hasked me if I would like to review a Sunbeam High Performance Power Blender – RRP$499.00. As smoothie conosuer (my husband and I met working at Boost juice and have a combined 8 years experience making smoothies), I jumped at the chance.
The Sunbeam High Performance Power Blender is the ultimate, versatile kitchen appliance that powers through a range of ingredients for perfectly blended drinks, and more. The blender also kneads, grinds, mills, chops, juices – helping with all food prep tasks.
It powered through bananas and ice and other frozen fruits, but what really impressed me was the consistency of the kale through our green smoothie. This is a sign of a good blender – and it was quick and easy to clean.
Let’s face it people – if an appliance is too hard to use or too hard to clean, it will end up sitting in the back of your cupboard for years to come.

- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 frozen mango cheek
- 1 frozen kiwi
