3 Delicious smoothie recipes + WIN 1 of 2 Breville Boss to Go™ Plus


Now in the very last weeks of my pregnancy, I am suffering from major moody, heavy, uncomfortable, pregnant woman syndrome. This is also topped up with major heart burn, lower back pain, and the feeling of not being that hungry. I still need to fuel my little growing baby with some good stuff, I just don’t feel like anything that nutritious so I’m excited to share with you my new best friend; the Breville Boss to go Plus. You can laugh, but it really has been saving my days and helping to feed my cravings of (healthy) chocolate milk and refreshing frape' style juices. 

You can read my review of the big BOSS here, its a machine of a machine. But this smaller baby of a Boss still lives by its name, it's truly awesome. As you can probably tell, I am pretty obsessed with personal blenders at the moment. It’s just nice to be able to make yourself something without fuss that tastes brilliant and is packed with nutrition when you just don’t feel like anything but a bit of toast and cheese. 



The Boss to Go™ was launched in November 2015. It's the Boss of personal blending as it creates fresh, nutrition loaded smoothies in seconds with the finest and smoothest texture. Featuring Breville’s unique Kinetix® blade and bowl system to pulverise the toughest ingredients, such as kale, nuts and seeds, to ultra-fine particles that are up to 42 per cent finer than some other personal blenders can achieve.
Inspired by Heston Blumenthal’s belief that sensory perception greatly influences the drinking experience and memory of beverages, the Boss to Go™ Plus has been specially designed with a smooth edge tumbler. With no sharp external threads or notches around the rim, just like a café style cup, the pleasure of drinking smoothies is intensified.
I LOVE the Handy flip top travel lids that makes for the ultimate on-the go drinking experience, boosting your nutrition with smoother smoothies from a smoother cup.

The Boss to Go™ Plus really is a superior quality personal blender and is exceptionally durable with a full metal construction, stainless steel bowl and blades, and includes two large 500ml and one mega 700ml dishwasher safe Tritan tumblers, plus a stainless steel mill.

You can create tasty green or protein packed smoothies, natural protein powders as well as popular smoothie bowls and home-made ice blocks with ease.

For inspiration the Boss to Go™ Plus includes a Nurture via Nature book packed with information including step-by-steps on creating healthy, delicious recipes, as well as tips such as how to maximise flavour, what liquids to use and the best ingredients to boost the nutritional value of recipes.

The Boss to Go™ Plus retails for $299.95 and can be purchased at your local electrical store or online at: http://www.breville.com.au/food-preparation/the-boss-to-go-blenders.html
