Power Blender Giveaway #71 – Froothie’s Optimum 9200A

Power Blender

9200A Blender, Giveaway | 20th February 2016 | By

As some of you may have noticed, I’ve rather fallen in love with my high speed power blender, the Optimum 9200A from Froothie. Since acquiring it, I’ve used it nearly every day and would now be lost without it. So I’m delighted to be able to offer one here as a Tin and Thyme giveaway.

In the West’s recent drive to embrace a healthier lifestyle, the smoothie has really come into its own. Smoothies are nothing new, they made a regular appearance on our breakfast or lunchtime table when I was growing up. However, they were fairly simple, usually consisting of milk, wheatgerm and banana. Now, not only do we have a wealth of additional ingredients available, but blenders are far more powerful. With a good power blender, you can add pretty much any sort of fruit or vegetable you like. I’ve made beautifully smooth drinks with raw beetroot, carrot, kale, celery, cucumber, spinach and garden weeds, including nettles. It blends frozen berries, apples with their skins on and all sorts of other tough stuff.

Power Blender

I don’t only use my power blender for smoothies, however, oh no. Sauces, pestos, spreads and cauliflower rice are regularly whizzed up. I’ve even made my first ever bean to bar chocolate in it too.  You can see some of my recipes on my Full on Froothie page.

As I’ve already intimated, the Optimum 9200A is a powerful beast. With its superior spec industrial high speed 2,611 watt motor, stainless steel 6-blade and heat-resistant BPA free 2 litre jug, this is a kitchen gadget I wouldn’t be without. It even crushes ice.  You can read more in my original review from last year. Any purchase made includes a one month money back guarantee, including return postage and a five year warranty. Do watch out for special offers as the price can vary. This hard to beat power blender is currently on offer at £299.

    I would make my mam’s Hearty Artichoke Tomato Soup! All you need is 28 oz can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, 15 oz can artichokes, 1 cup water, 1 cup milk, 2 tablespoons butter, 1 large onion, 1 clove garlic, 3 bay leaves, 1/2 teaspoon oregano and 1 teaspoon basil.

    First you chop the onion and garlic then in a large soup pot, heat 2 tablespoons butter, sauté the onions, garlic, and bay leaves until the onions are translucent. Next chop the artichokes into smaller pieces and in the soup pot, add the artichokes, tomatoes, water, oregano and basil. Simmer for 10 minutes then pop it all in the blender! Yummy soup!

    I adore banana as my starting point, I add watermelon, passionfruit, apple and when I am being mega healthy, spinach. But I add fresh lemon so I cannot taste the spinach.

    I don’t know whether I’d make a smoothie or soup first. For a smoothie I would use mango, pineapple and passionfruit, refreshing and perfect for summer! I’d also really love to try making asparagus soup as I love it and I’ve never tried a homemade version

    I’m going through a gingerbread syrup/flavouring phase at the moment, so I’d attempt to come up with a recipe for a cheesecake. At the moment, I’m thinking of blitzing up dried gingerbread cake for the base, a chocolate, gingerbread flavouring, creme fraiche, cream cheese, & double cream filling, & then maybe an orange curd topping with a drizzle of orange & gingerbread syrup…it might be overkill, but you don’t know until you try!
