Supposedly the most powerful home blender on the planet, the Blendtec can whip avocados into guacamole without skinning or stoning them first. More practically, it's so fast that it can make chicken breasts into hot chicken soup and make anything you like - bananas, spinach, iPads - into a smoothie within seconds (check out willitblend.com (opens in new tab)). Expensive, yes, but a worthy investment for the man who likes his post-gym protein in a flask.
Mix it up
Rethink your smoothies with advice from Nosh Detox (opens in new tab) founder Geeta Sidhu-Robb.
Sweet and sour
'Combine green veg with tangy fruits,' says Sidhu-Robb. 'The tastes complement each other well. Celery, spinach and cucumber go well with kiwi fruit or apples, giving a big antioxidant hit without too much sugar.'
Freezy does it
'Frozen fruit is much better than fruit that's been shipped across the country and sat around losing nutrients for a few weeks,' says Sidhu-Robb.
'For a delicious slow-release complex protein shake, mix up some almond milk, banana, oats and a handful of hemp seeds,' suggests Sidhu-Robb. For a quick post-gym hit of protein, add 100ml of water, a scoop of whey protein powder and a load of ice cubes - the result is a lot like ice cream.

From 2008 to 2018, Joel worked for Men's Fitness, which predated, and then shared a website with, Coach. Though he spent years running the hills of Bath, he’s since ditched his trainers for a succession of Converse high-tops, since they’re better suited to his love of pulling vans, lifting cars, and hefting logs in a succession of strongman competitions.
