If you're looking to incorporate more fruit and vegetables into your diet, try a smoothie maker.
They're a speedy way to get your five-a-day and are ideal for those that are time-conscious or just feeling lazy.
When shopping for one, there are a couple of things to consider. Firstly is the consistency of your drinks, if you want a juice-like beverage, a more powerful motor will be required. Size is also an important factor, as depending on the size of your kitchen, you may need a more compact design to fit on smaller countertops.
Second is budget, as machines can vary dramatically in price - some are in the hundreds, others can be found for less than £30.
In our shopping edit, we've handpicked a versatile bunch to shop now, from slick high-end designs for smoothies, juices, soups and salsas to budget-friendly models which are designed with portability in mind.
