If you stay closely to my Instagram Stories, you would be able to feel my love for a breakfast smoothie! Because I am not good at cooking, I can only feel a sense of pride when I make smoothies for my family members using blender! Not only do the smoothies taste delicious, they are also great antioxidants and consist of great body fats that our body needs! An example would be the avocado milk shake!
How Can We Meet Your Dietary Needs?
According to the World Health Organization, a healthy diet consists of 400 grams or five portions worth of fruit and vegetables a day. If we look into our Singaporean diet, this is in fact a tough target to meet even though the numbers look minimum. Let me break it down for you: When we consume a plate of chicken rice, we only get a maximum of 3 mini pieces of cucumbers. How about prawn noodles? Maybe 2 “strands” of kang kong. We shall not even look into hokkien mee, fried rice, and fishball noodles.
We all know that consuming the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables helps to reduce the risk of multiple lifestyle related diseases. I am sure there are many who turn to blenders to increase their intake of healthy super food. “Drinking smoothies are a great way to get more fruits and vegetables into our diet. However, oxidation that occurs during the blending process causes browning, decolorisation and separation. This immediately decreases the nutritional value of the vitamins and minerals released. The introduction of modern day technology such as vacuum blending can help to slow down this process for smoothies to stay fresher for longer,” said Ms. Bibi Chia, Principal Dietitian, Raffles Diabetes & Endocrine Centre.
Stay Healthy Using Philips High Speed Vacuum Blender
Staying healthy just got easier for me as Philips introduces its latest kitchen innovation, the Philips High Speed Vacuum Blender. With its unique vacuum blending technology, we can now enjoy fresh and delicious smoothies throughout the day with nutritional goodness all sealed within.
One information that I do not share often on my social media is that when I make my smoothie, I ensure that I finish the cup of smoothie immediately. Leaving the smoothies out for a few hours not only reduces the taste of the drink, but also the nutritional value.
StayFresh Vacuum Technology
What I like about the Philips’ innovative StayFresh Vacuum Technology is that it is equipped with Philips’ patented joint lid solution and vacuum process filter. It combines a powerful pump with an air-sealed system to keep air out during the vacuuming process to visibly reduce the amount of bubbles, foam and separation that occurs.
The Philips’ StayFresh Vacuum Technology helps smoothies to not only look brighter and taste better, but also retain their freshness for a longer period of time. This would mean that our bodies can still absorb every nutritional benefit from our smoothies throughout the day, as it stays as fresh as when we made them. Even though Philips has this technology, I would still encourage you to have it immediately if possible!
Powerful Blender Ability
Philips High Speed Vacuum Blender is extremely powerful when it comes to blending smoothies. The Philips High Speed Vacuum Blender’s ProBlend 6 3D technology covers a wider blending area while its powerful 1,400-watt motor with 35,000 rpm ensures that the ingredients are finely blended. From gently blending soft fruits to harder ingredients such as ice, the blender has a variety of program settings and speed options, for every desired smoothie option.
The blender is convenient to use with fuss-free maintenance, using the LED ring to highlight the vacuum and blending progress. Cleaning up is even easier as every detachable part of the blender is dishwasher safe, other than the blade which can be easily rinsed clean. This is an important fact for busy people like myself!
The Philips High Speed Vacuum Blender (HR3752/01) retails for $599 and is now available at the Philips e-shop and Philips authorised retailers. You can head down to the retail stores and see the product in action. Get a feel of it and you will know what I mean!
