Do you own a blender? No? Well after reading this blog post, you might consider purchasing one.

Defy is launching a 1000w stainless steel blender which allows you to blend frozen fruit and crush ice in seconds, which means quick on-the-go smoothies.

To celebrate this launch, I thought I would share some delicious easy recipes that I think is a must try plus I have an awesome competition for you at the end, so you can win your own DEFY blender!


Many people assume that the only delicious drink you can make using a blender is a smoothie.


There’s a ton of recipes you can try using a blender.

Why use a blender?

It changes the consistency of many ingredients mixed together (giving you the right consistency) plus it saves you time!

A blender can mix, purée, or emulsify food and other substances.

From making your own body scrub to blending eggs and making homemade sauces. The list is endless if you really want to experiment with a blender.
