January detox: 10 best jug blenders for soups and smoothies

Get going on those healthy smoothies and soups with one of these nifty bits of kitchen kit

Come January, most of us resolve to eat more healthily, cook more and make sure we get our five a day. Sometimes not having the right equipment can make it feel like a bit of an effort. In search of the quickest, no-mess way to knock up yummy smoothies and soups, we put jug blenders to the test.

 

From the high end gadgets like the Vitamix Aspire blender to Tefal’s bargain Blendforce, we tried them all so you don’t have to.
