As the seasons change, so do our breakfast choices. While the winter months call for overnight oats, as the days get warmer we often crave something a bit lighter and fresh like a quick and easy summer smoothie.
While the best recipe remains up for debate (we're big fans of a banana and spinach combo), one thing we can all agree on is that you need a good, easy-to-clean blender with lots of blitzing power.
Don't want to spend a lot? We've found an affordable option that's powerful, under £20 and backed up by over 50,000 reviews - and 40,000 of those come with five stars.
Why we rate it
The Breville Blend Active Personal Blender & Smoothie Maker features a 300 watt motor, which is powerful enough to blitz everything from fruit or vegetables to ice cubes, with ease.
Customers say it's not only fast and extremely easy to use, but also fairly quiet and nice and lightweight.
As an added bonus, it's also easy to clean as the blades are detachable and dishwasher-safe.
If you love smoothies as a quick on-the-go brekkie, the blender also comes with two sports bottles that can be attached directly to the blender. Once you’ve whizzed up your ingredients you can simply pop on a leak-proof lid (which is also included), and you’re good to go.
The kitchen gadget is currently on sale, reduced from an already affordable £29.99 to just £18 - we think this may just be the bargain of the week.
What the reviews say
The Breville Blend Active Personal Blender & Smoothie Maker has racked up 40,000 five star reviews, which is no easy feat and has an average rating of 4.7 out of 5.
There's no doubt the blender is “amazing value for money”, in fact many customers say it's better than fancier ones they've purchased in the past.
"Really powerful" and "easy to clean" are also top attributes, with many also loving its travel bottles and slim design that can easily slot into a cupboard for storage.
