I've already got a Nutrininja but I spotted this on Lidl's upcoming deals.

At 700W this is going to be far more effective than your usual 300W £15-20 cheap units that in my experience leave seeds, nuts and fruit skin too chunky to be drinkable.

It comes with 2 blade attachments. Your regular cross blade is great for fruit and smoothies and it also comes with a flat blade. This is something even my more expensive Nutrininja doesn't include which I miss as it great for harder items like nuts and seeds which can accumulate at the bottom of the unit when trying to blend with the regular cross blade.

And 3 year warranty on items like these are handy, we all know they come from China with varying levels of quality.

* Blends and crushes ingredients - ideal for quickly preparing smoothies, dips, sauces and desserts
* Cross-blade attachment easily blends fruit, vegetables and ice, while the flat-blade attachment is perfect for chopping harder foods, herbs and grains
* With 2 removable blending tumblers and 3 different lids, including travel lid for fresh smoothies on the go
* Includes a recipe booklet full of delicious, nutritious ideas to help you on your way to 5 a day
* Powerful 700W motor capable of up to
19000rpm
* Blending tumbler capacity (ml): 350 and 700
* 3 year manufacturer's warranty

Do you use these for meal replacements? Do they fill you up for long? What about protein- how do you make sure you are getting enough protein if you do use these as meal replacement's?
BTW- this one from Lidl looks very much like this one (80 quid on Amazon.)

You can, have a search for smoothie recipes on google and you'll see loads of recipe suggestions and you can off course chuck a scoop of protein powder in.

If I'm doing something I want to be filling I tend to use 2 portions of fruit (80g each), 100g of Greek yoghurt, 25g of oats, 25g of linseed and 25g of peanut butter (100% peanut butter is best) and some honey.

Even without a protein powder scoop thats about 20-25g of protein and the mix of sources is going to ensure it's high quality and all 9 essential amino acids will be included.

I personally don't find it filling because there's no chewing involved so for me it's a supplement to my regular meals. But if you're already doing meal replacement shakes I'd go for making my own over some powdered processed stuff any day.
For meal replacement, you want to be fulfilled, mentally you will not want to snack if you are full.

To make a shake more filling, you need to add protein or fibre. Both are very filling.

Protein ideas: Yoghurt, cottage cheese, Peanut butter.

Fibre ideas: Chi Seeds, home bargains £1.50 for big bag, or some other kind of seeds, lidl is cheap for seeds actually, all seeds are usually high in fibre

You put a 16oz fillet steak through the blender every 2 days.

A single apple core isn't going to hurt you, but they aren't the only thing which can contain cyanide that you're probably consumin. Just core it, there's no nutritional benefit to eating them and you get the best blending results chopping fruit into segments first anyway.

Yes you do sadly. This divice is purely for chopping and mushing fruits. Really the ideal option is to purchest a juicer. Aldi had an amazing slow juicer last week!

This will blend it into a perfectly drinkable smoothie. As for a juicer being ideal that's a whole subject being up for debate.

Personally I much prefer smoothies as they keep the fibre in the finished product. This will better satiate your appetite and slow down the absorption of the fructose sugars.

It's ultimately going to be a personal choice, but there are more logical health benefits to choose blending over juicing but some people prefer juice.
Known for cup leaking. The mixer lidl becomes blunt quickly. Be aware and happy replace regularly I had one last year
