Best blender/smoothie maker I've come across so far!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kenwood SB055 Smoothie 2GO - Silver (Kitchen & Home)
I've had quite a few blenders and smoothie makers over the years, but once I tried this one, I was hooked!
1. Compact design that doesn't take up too much room on worktop.
2. Makes great smoothies.
3. Soooo easy to clean, and in you know it's clean as there aren't any bits you can't get into, unlike some smoothie machines.
4. Handy lids for if you want to transport your drink, and they don't leak!!
Not really anything more you could ask for from a smoothie maker.
My one has been going strong for the last 4 years, and I bought one for each of my sons to take with them when they went to university.
Interestingly, of all the smoothies we've done over the years, hubby and sons all have the same favourite one, and it's probably about the simplest one to do too, although it does need a little bit of forward planning:
Whenever you have an over-ripe banana, slice it up and freeze it (with slices in a single layer) in a food bag. (Having the slices in a single layer makes it easier for the blade and motor to deal with). Or, like us, buy a big bunch of bananas, let them go very ripe then slice, put in single layers in food bags and freeze!
Put milk (we use skimmed and it's fine) and frozen banana into smoothie maker.
It's as simple as that.
If you blend it a little longer than you think you need to, it will thicken up slightly, which seems to add to the texture.
One of my sons has likened it to a McD's milkshake!!
This smoothie doesn't seem to need any ice added, presumably because the banana is frozen.
(It's nowhere near as good if the banana isn't frozen!)
This smoothie doesn't keep well, so it's better for immediate consumption rather than to make ahead.
Anyway, back to the smoothie maker:
Buy it, it's great!

Forgot to mention that I also use it to blend home made soups - works brilliantly!
