As a Froothie ambassador I’ve been lucky enough to try out a range of blenders. The first one to live in my kitchen was the Optimum 9200A. It’s a powerful beast and until now, has been unrivalled for pure muscle. The Optimum Vac2 is not only strong, it’s also a vacuum blender and I have a handsome red one sitting pretty in my kitchen.
I do love a bowl of soup in the winter. It’s the perfect comfort food. Warming, nutritious and delicious, it’s a great big hug in a bowl. This vegan apple parsnip soup is one of my favourites. It’s lightly spiced, but the real flavour comes from the sweet aromatic parsnips offset by the slight tartness of the apple.
