Reluctant cook with a sweet tooth, Nicola gives a VonShef Multifunctional Soup Maker a whirl. Keen to see what else the soup maker is capable of, she decided to mix things up a little with a fruity, summery smoothie.
Why did you want to try out a soup maker?
I’d never used one before and looked quite fool-proof to use. Rather than soup, I whipped up a mixed berry smoothie. I’d never made a smoothie from scratch before, so wanted to start off with something simple that I knew I’d definitely like.
How easy was this to make?
Very! Literally a case of chucking everything into the soup maker and blending for a few seconds. It was just one button to press to power on then another to blend. It was a bit noisy but any soup maker or blender is going to be like this.
How was your smoothie?
Perfect, turned out just like I imagined it to be. Delicious, refreshing, quick and easy! It’s a good smoothie for the summer, especially with a little ice added.
Surprise of the day?
Didn’t realise how quick and easy it would be to make, and I would definitely use again over going to the supermarket and buying ready-made. Didn’t need many ingredients to yield a lot of juice, so probably cheaper too.
