I am really enjoying using my new mean machine from Froothie- Optimum 9400. Breakfasts have never been so easy and I have got my whole family involved in our smoothie challenge, trying out new combinations of ingredients. Having tried various combinations, we discovered that keeping the smoothies simple with the use of 2-3 ingredients makes the flavour more balanced and the smoothies more tasty.
Today we tried a simple Orange and carrot smoothie.
3 oranges peeled and cut into quarters.
2 large carrots tops removed and cut into chunks.
2 tablespoons clear honey (or sweetener) to taste.
Glass full of ice cubes
1. Place all the ingredients into the blender and whizz the ingredients for 60 seconds, starting on slow speed and gradually increasing the speed.
2. Pour the smoothie into beer tankards or any glasses of choice and enjoy with a carrot garnish.
I wrote about the The Optimum 9400 in my previous post where I shared my peach and apple smoothie. It is a very versatile machine that not only blends and whizzes smoothies but chops, grates and whipps, makes nut butter and nut milk. It creates icecreams and soups to in a jiffy too.
Best of all unlike many gadgets that are a pain to clean, to clean this beauty is easy as 1,2,3. All you do is put a drop or two of washing up liquid in the jug, fill it a quarter with water and whizz for 15 seconds. Pour away the soapy liquid and rinse and its all set for using again. How easy is that, no messy blocked blades and mesh work to clean.
