Smoothies are having a moment: their popularity has skyrocketed over the past decade as desk-chained dieters seek new ways to get their fix of vitamins and nutrients. As a result, blenders have become trendy makers, and there’s plenty out there to choose from. However, the multitude of features that some blenders come with don’t always add much to the smoothie itself — all the bells and whistles in the world don’t matter if the core product doesn’t do what it says with ease. Braun’s PureMix Jug Blender pares down overwrought blenders and comes with accessories that take your fruit from frozen to ready-to-sip in a matter of minutes.
The PureMix guarantees consistent smoothies with two simple, streamlined speed modes and innovative blades: Braun’s Power Assist and Smooth Crush technology make your blended beverages smoother than ever. The patented lid doubles as a measuring cup, so you won’t dirty additional dishes, and the Braun Smoothie2Go Blending Cup lets you make your drink in the same container you’ll carry it in. You can even blend hot ingredients directly into the machine with the ThermoResist glass pitcher.
The simple-yet-powerful Braun PureMix Jug Blender usually goes for $79.99, but right now it’s on sale for $40 (an impressive 49% off).
