If you’re really into juices/smoothies and are keen to preserve the nutrients, or want to make them ahead of time and not only preserve their nutrients but also their colour and smooth texture (avoiding layer separation), then a vacuum blender would be perfect for you.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF THE OPTIMUM VAC 2 AIR VACUUM BLENDER*
The base of this blender looks like a launch pad; like you’ll be sending your smoothies into outer space! (I suppose, with its vacuum technology, it is a bit like sending your smoothie into outer space, but that’s beside the point…) It’s certainly very fancy looking.
THE BEST BITS
- It makes for more aesthetically pleasing smoothies and milkshakes. My dairy free banana and walnut milkshake, for example, kept its creamy colour for longer!
- One jug does everything – smoothies, nut butters, soups… the lot! No need to change the jug. (Unlike my Optimum G2.3!)
- By blending in a vacuum environment, nutrients are preserved and freshness retained until you open the lid, so it’s great for making things in advance.

Food loving vegetarian blogger with a sweet tooth but eating a lot of healthy stuff too. Experimenting with unusual foodstuffs and creating recipes are two of my food passions. I specialise in recipes that have some sort of chocolate element, be they savoury, raw, vegan, vegetarian, healthy or just plain indulgent. I'm also passionate about my home county of Cornwall and try to use as much local produce as possible.
