Make smoothies and milkshakes in your Total Control Soup Maker

  • The Total Control Soup Maker is perfect for smoothies and milkshakes during the warmer weather

With the changing of the seasons, it's comforting to know that your Total Control Soup Maker is not just for the colder months.

As Spring continues and with Summer approaching, we immediately start thinking about fresh produce and refreshing drinks - putting smoothies at the very top on the list. With an abundance of fruit and vegetables becoming readily available, the combinations of what to make are endless.

Berries, mangoes and peach cheeks are just a few fruits with vibrant colours and tangy flavours that we can't always enjoy until the weather is warm. Best of all, they can be whipped into a healthy, delicious and filling breakfast or anytime snack in your Total Control Soup Maker.

For a quick, nutritious start to your day we recommend you to try this Summery recipe:

  • 300ml plain low-fat yoghurt
  • 100g fresh blueberries
  • 100g fresh mangoes
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of Chia seeds
  • 100ml unsweetened almond milk

Place all the ingredients into the stainless steel jug and stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Prop the lid on, select Drinks function and voilà! Enjoy a delicious, homemade smoothie packed with vitamins and nutrients in minutes.

Up to 4 servings of soup or smoothie can be made at a time with the intuitive portion control, and the clean up is a breeze with the Preclean function and the ease with which the inner jug can be easily removed for hand washing. If you don't have time for an immediate clean, simply fill the jug with 800ml of water, a squeeze of dishwashing liquid and set on the Preclean function. This way the jug and the blending blade will be easier to wash off when you do have the time.

And of course, hot drinks and soups are still just as easy to prepare from scratch. Whether you like your soup smooth or a little chunky, both textures can be achieved with the push of a button. The Total Control Soup Maker is so versatile with all its features and programmes; we have even tried making packet gravy in it, through the Reheat function, and it is delicious!
