Trying Out The Breville Blend Active + Recipe

Blend Active Review
Hello everyone! So as a lot of you guys know, I've been quite into healthy smoothies recently. One issue I tend to have with making the, however, it the mess I make as I pour the liquid into a bottle, jar or glass. The Breville Blend Active eliminates that issue so when it was recommended to me on Amazon I just couldn't help myself.

This isn't a paid advertisement, this is a product that I purchased because I wanted to try it out and I figured I'd share my opinion with you guys. I was torn between this one and the Nutribullet but since this was an impulse buy I didn't do too much research. It's working out well so far, I've used it twice, though, I struggled the first time as I used too much frozen fruit and it turned into a frozen mush at the blade, 

The machine itself is super easy to use, just fill up one of the bottles with your chosen ingredients, screw on the cap with the blade in, lock into the main machine and press the blend button. No mess and no fuss, just switch the lid from the bladed one to the regular one and there you go, you can enjoy your delicious smoothie. 

So yeah, I did make a bit of mess whilst chopping and pouring but that comes with my general clumsiness and it couldn't at all be helped. It was considerably tidier though and I can imagine that more organised people really won't have that issue. 

I hope you've enjoyed this post, if you're interested in products you shouldn't follow my example and impulse buy. Check out the reviews and take a look at all of the options, I can try to stop you lot from making the same daft mistakes as me. Luckily I actually like this product so it wasn't a loss this time.

I quite enjoy putting together recipes and trying out different combinations of ingredients, I've tried all sorts of wacky mixes. Just incase you were wondering, the smoothie featured in the image included:
  • Milk
  • Frozen raspberries (a handfull!)
  • 2 bananas
  • Almonds 
  • Honey
Thanks for reading, I apologise if I've rambled on a bit. I'm hoping to get quite a few posts up this week but I can't guarantee the timing. Until next time, bye!

  1. I love the look of this blender, very slimline so wouldn't take up much space :)

  4. I really want to get something like this. I make my smoothies in a regular blender but for transport and storage, having it in a to-go straight from the blending stage would be so much easier!

  6. The blender looks quite good. We have one commercial at home which makes awful lots of noise, so this one is probably much better.
    The recipe sounds very yummy and healthy - right up my street :)
