Blend and foam fruit into healthy smoothies that are available on tap with the Kenwood SB206 Smoothie Maker. Smoothies are the milkshakes of the new millennium and as well as being very tasty, they can be healthy too. The Kenwood SB206 is designed to cope with fruit and ice as well as milk and other liquids. The wide funnel-shaped goblet means everything falls neatly onto the blades and makes it easy to clean as well. You don't have to struggle with grooves or latches, because the goblet just sits in the base. There's a tap too, so you don't have to tip everything up to get your smoothie out.
The goblet has the usual volume marker on the side (capacity is 1.5 litres) and it's also marked to show you how much fruit or ice you can put in, how much liquid you can put in and (most useful of all) how many people will get a drink.
This isn't a multi-purpose liquidiser--the blades are raised above the spout of the tap to produce a nice foamy smoothie, so it's not good at grinding dry ingredients. If you're mixing something particularly thick, pop in the stirring stick to make sure everything gets well mixed; this makes your smoothies even foamier. The powerful motor can cope with frozen fruit, ice cream or ice cubes and the high-speed Smooth button finishes your drink in under 60 seconds.
Smoothies are a great way of getting kids (and adults) to enjoy their daily dose of fruit. But if you're going to make smoothies every day you want a blender that's easy to clean. The goblet, lid and stirring stick are dishwasher safe but they also wash quickly under the tap because there are no nooks and crannies for pulp to lurk in. It's surprising how much difference the shape of the goblet and the tap make to the SB206; just make sure the tap is closed before you start filling the goblet. --Mary Branscombe
