Blended nutrition ON THE GO. This convenient, compact blender has 300W power and features two 0.5L travel beakers with handles. Ideal for those who want to blend their smoothies and enjoy on the go. The convenient flip open lid makes it very easy to drink directly from the travel mug. Open the lid, clip into position and drink away. The lid is designed in such a way so that the smoothie does not drip down the side when you drink. The bottles might be the ideal size for carrying around but their slender design means that any ingredients need to be cut down to size to fit through the opening. In this case, 2cm chunks, which was time-consuming.
There are recommendations for some recipes as to which ingredients to add first for the smoothest blend, so it’s also not as easy as throwing everything in and blending.

We've just retested the classic Magimix Le Blender alongside newer big blenders such as the AEG Gourmet 7 Compact Jug Blender.

My Decision.Both the mugs have a handle that makes it easy to fix into the main unit and makes it very convenient to drink directly from the travel mug. Next, we tried a green smoothie using spinach, fruit, ice, yoghurt and juice. This produced a thinner consistency but some pieces of fruit skin were still visible despite the Sport 2Go being run on High for around 40 seconds and a few pulses. It was also frothier than the previous blend. However, in both, the ice cubes were completely crushed and most of the fibrous fruit was well blended.
