The first step towards healthy eating is to make every meal as easy as possible to prepare. We’ve compiled a list of our top smoothie makers and blenders to help you whip up nutritious soups, sauces and snacks without any of the hassle.
So you’ve tried every juice cleanse imaginable and mastered every smoothie and soup recipe known to man. Now it’s time to take your healthy eating to a new level with The Boss blender from Sage. With its range of automatic settings and variable speeds, you can blitz, blend and puree your way to the perfect low calorie dish. It has a dedicated setting for green smoothies, so you’ll have everything you need for a vitamin rich pre-workout drink. You’re only a push of a button away from an exciting after-dinner sweet treat as well, thanks to the dedicated sorbet programme.
The easiest way to get the whole house on board with healthy eating is by whipping up colourful drinks and snacks that’ll please everyone. This blender from Ninja has a handy screen that makes it easier to prepare everything from nutritious nut butters to silky smooth soups. It has a large 2.1 litre jug too, which comes in handy when the little ones have friends over, as you can prepare delicious smoothies for everyone. The blades are designed to crush even the toughest of ingredients, perfect for making iced coffees – or cocktails, if you’re feeling a bit stressed.
If style is just as important to you as healthy eating, you need an appliance that does the job, but looks stunning in your kitchen too. This Empire Red Diamond blender from KitchenAid has a sleek retro design that looks great on any kitchen counter. With a range of automatic settings, including one to blend hot food, it’s perfect for any avid foodie too. It even has a soft start feature, which starts blending food slowly to prevent splashing, so you can keep those beautifully chic granite worktops in pristine condition too.
Between figuring out the best things to eat and working out how to make healthy meals exciting, new health regimes can be a real challenge. On top of that, the last thing you need is an overly complicated appliance to make the whole thing 10 times more confusing. With the kMix Blender from Kenwood, every recipe will be a complete breeze to prepare. With variable speed settings, a pulse function and a special blade design to tackle any task, every soup and smoothie will only be a push of a button away.

Now it’s time to sit back and let this Bosch blender be your fuss-free answer to food prep. The handy chopper attachment creates perfectly prepared vegetables for every meal, and the special glass jug lets you blend hot and cold food too. It’s incredibly quiet as well, so you won’t have to worry about waking the rest of the house up when you’re prepping a smoothie for your morning gym trips.
Maybe you’re totally new to this whole healthy eating thing and you wouldn’t have a clue where to start if it came to actually making a smoothie. The best way to solve this dilemma is with a smoothie maker like this model from Smeg. It has a variety of settings to create all sorts of recipes at the touch of a button – you’ll be an expert in no time.
