Making Smoothies with The VonShef Personal Blender

March 19, 2015

We are pretty big smoothie and juicing fans in our home (you may have realised that from the many photos I’ve posts on Instagram).

I thought it would be a nice idea to share some of our recipes that we have turned to time and time again and really enjoy drinking.

We use the VonShef Personal Blender that is only £14.49 and works just as well, if not better than many other brands with the same product idea.

When I make my smoothies I like them to taste as good as they can but to also fill me up and give me lots of nutrition so I always use this 5 part rule:

Choose a base – The base it what will give a liquid quality to your smoothie. You can add as much or as little as you want depending on the thickness you desire. Bases I like to use are Coconut Water, Almond Milk, Vanilla Soy and of course plain water.

Choose a fat – Don’t be scared of fats. There are such a good thing as good fats and your body will be happy for you to eat them! Good fats I like to use are Avocado, Peanut Butter, Seeds and Coconut Oil.

Choose some fruits – Fruit makes things taste yummy, sweet and delicious. As well as providing you with vitamins and minerals. Fruits I like using are Bananas, Strawberries, Pineapple, Mango, Peaches, Figs, Dates and many more.

Choose some veggies – Veggies also add vitamins and minerals as well as important fibre. I love to use Kale, Spinach, Mint, Beetroot, Cucumber, Carrots, Peppers among others.

Superfood it up! – Superfoods are unbelievably good for you so add them in where you can. I use Maca Powder, Spirulina, Bee Pollen, Goji Berries, Green Tea, Flax Seed, Cocoa Nibs and more.

Add a protein  – For this I normally stick to adding a protein powder or some nuts.

So here are some of my recipes:

Peaches and Cream Smoothie

1 cup Vanilla Milk
Half an Avocado
1 Banana
1 Peach
1tsp Cocoa Nibs
1tsp Honey

Very Berry Coconut Smoothie

Coconut Water
2tsp Coconut Oil
6 Large Strawberries
Handful Blackberries
Handful Spinach
3 Mint Leaves
Goji Berries

Sweet Sublime Smoothie

Almond Milk
2 Bananas
8 Dates
Cocoa Nibs
Maca Powder

These all make wonderful breakfasts and/or snacks. You can add protein powder to any of them for a lovely post workout fill-up.

Hope these help you and give you some yummy ideas. Let me know if you try these recipes and also let me know if you like them.

    Great price for the blender. I think I paid 4 times that amount for mine and it broke in 3 weeks.

    Some great smoothie recipes here! I need to buy a new blender actually, I just want to get something of a really good quality which would make smoothies really smooth. The current blender I have doesn’t do such a good job when it comes to harder ingredients like celery, carrots and nuts. How does yours perform with these?
