With Preethi Turbo Chop in the kitchen, preparing multiple items for breakfast/lunch/dinner become very easy.  Apart from the above-mentioned benefits, I set out to explore other uses of the product.

What more can Preethi Turbo Chop do

We all love the idea of making healthy milkshakes with fruits and detoxifying drinks with select vegetables.  These drinks are either too costly or not available at most of the outlets.  Besides that, the taste of the drink varies across different outlets due to variety of ingredients and presentation styles.  Therefore, I thought of attempting to make the drinks using the Preethi Turbo Chop.IMG_20180706_162757

Initially when I share my idea, I was ridiculed.  But then I stuck to my conviction and decided to pursue making the drinks.

Milkshakes

I decided on making two milkshakes using Mango and Apple fruits.  And then make two detox drinks with cucumber and carrot.  Let me share the recipe for the various drinks.IMG_20180706_163728

Mango Milkshake

  1. Start by making small pieces of mango. Ideally, try peeling off the outer skin so the bitterness of skin does not hamper the overall taste.
  2. Put the pieces of Mango around the blades of Preethi Turbo Chop. Pour some milk, 1-2 spoon of sugar, salt for flavour and Cardamom powder.
  3. Close the lid of the Preethi Turbo Chop and press the top portion where the motor’s present.
  4. The blades slice up the mango into smaller pieces and mixes all the ingredients thoroughly.
  5. Sharp blades act upon the fruits very quickly. It’s always nice to check after using the product for 10-20secs.  By then most of the fruits are minced completely and milkshake’s ready.
  6. Take out the lid and pour the contents of the jar onto a Mason Jar and enjoy the drink.

Wow! It hardly took around 30-40s to make a smooth and lovely Mango milkshake.  The taste was consistent, and very much like the Mango milkshakes made using the big mixers.

Apple Milkshake

The procedure used for making the Apple Milkshake is very similar to the Mango Milkshake.  Instead of adding the Mango, one needs to add cut-apple pieces.  I would personally recommend adding the complete fruit (with apple skin) as most of the nutrition would stay intact.  To be able to get it a little smoother, one can use the Turbo chopper for 60-70s.  The milkshake comes out very thick, but its tasty and very nutritious.

Detoxifying Juices

The most common vegetables used for making the detox drinks that aids weight loss are Cucumber and Carrot.  I wanted to experiment making the individual juices using the Preethi Turbo Chop.IMG_20180706_163945

Cucumber Juice

  1. Start by making small pieces of cucumber. Remove the outer skin from the cucumber before adding into Turbo Chop.
  2. Put the pieces of cucumber pieces around the blades of Preethi Turbo Chop. Pour around 150-200ml of water along with pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Close the lid of the Preethi Turbo Chop and press the top portion where the motor’s present.
  4. The blade slices up the cucumber into smaller pieces and mixes all the ingredients thoroughly.
  5. The power motor works on the cucumber quickly and the juice’s ready.
  6. Take out the lid and pour the contents of the jar onto a Mason Jar.

The cucumber juice tasted pretty good and it’s the perfect detoxifying drink.  Looking at the outcome, my family believes that we should make this on a regular basis.

Carrot Juice

The procedure for making carrot juice is very similar to the cucumber juice.  Only difference would be to use carrot (outer peel removed) instead of cucumber.  Carrot is a much harder vegetable compared to cucumber, so the chopper will need to be run for 60-70s.  But at the end of it, the juice that came out tasted amazing.

The Turbo Chop does not mince the carrots completely and I could feel the minced carrot in every sip.  But I know that the content of the drink was extremely healthy, and I enjoyed the flavours.IMG_20180706_170626

Closing Thoughts

Preethi Turbo charge is one of the best products among many other products.  I have personally used the product for making chutneys, making purees and now attempted make milkshakes & healthy drinks.  It hardly took 20 minutes to prepare 4 drinks which including 2 milkshakes & 2 healthy drinks.  The powerful blades help in cutting hard vegetable and fruits into smallest pieces.  This product will become popular across every household and juice vendors across the country.  I specially recommend the Preethi Turbo Chopper to all my friends and family.IMG_20180706_170910
