Win an Optimum 9400 Blender worth £329


You'll have heard about my love affair? If you've been reading my blog you'll know what I'm talking about. 

It's my own personal sous chef. My Optimum 9400.

He's a powerful beast and he looks ever so handsome sitting on my worktop. He helps me out every day,  cleans himself and he's ever so quiet. 


Every morning I throw a selection of fruit, vegetables, some water or fruit juice and ice in my blender, hit the switch and a few seconds later we each have a slurpilious smoothie for breakfast or to take with us to work or school. Then a quick rinse at the tap, some hot water and a few drops of washing-up liquid and back on to whizz himself clean.. Smoothies made and a clean blender in a couple of minutes. Perfect for busy mornings.

There's so much more you can make in the Optimum 9400. Here are a few recipes:

 

You can also knead bread or pizza dough, make pizza sauce, pasta sauce, pesto, dips, milkshakes, slushies, nut flours, peanut butter, ice cream, sorbet, pancake batter, guacamole, nut milks, rice milk, jam, cheese sauce, salad dressings and mayonnaise.

So would you like one?

I thought so!

To enter leave me a comment telling me what you'll make first in your blender, if you win one, then enter via the rafflecopter below. This giveaway will run until 31 October 2014 to readers who live in the UK (although after the election today, we may be talking of Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales.



Disclosure: I have an Optimum 9400 which I was sent for review a few months ago. I love it and I am happy to promote the brand on my blog.
