Desserts Made Easy By Philips Jamie Oliver Hand Blender

Sponsored Review

Remember my first post on Philips Jamie Oliver hand blender here? Not only is the hand blender useful for creating main courses for the family, it also came in very useful when I was making desserts and drinks for everyone. This is undoubtedly the most useful tool in my kitchen to-date.

Strawberry smoothie was done in a jiffy with the hand blender. All I needed to do was to get the ingredients ready - Fresh strawberries, ice cubes, yoghurt, sugar and of course, my trusty hand blender.

Add sugar to diced strawberries.

Put everything into container with yoghurt and ice cubes.

Blend till everything's become a thick frosty liquid form.

Happy kid gives thumbs up for yummy strawberry smoothie done in 5 minutes.

I am not shy to say that I created this cake. Seriously, the inspiration came one day when I opened one of my kitchen cabinets and found several bars of these Apollo chocolate wafers. They were a huge part of my childhood and I thought how nice it would be if I made a cake out of them. So, I did.

Measured out my self-raising flour and sugar as I would for any other cakes.

The girl helped me to unwrap all the wafers. She'll make one fine baker next time simply because of her passion for it.

Pop the chocolate wafers into the mincer. Haha, yes mincer.

So easy to operate that my girl can do it all by herself.

Pour out the finely chopped-up wafers into a bowl and blend in the rest of the ingredients.

You can do the blending by hand or engage the help of the hand blender.

Pour the mixture into the baking tin and bake in the oven.

My cake may not look that nice but it tasted awesome with heavenly Apollo chocolate taste! =D

A saviour on a hot day.

This was as easy as ABC. Take out all the mango flesh and cut into small cubes.

Put everything into the mincer and after a mere 10 seconds, everything becomes fine puree. :)

Scoop the mango puree into ice pop moulds and freeze overnight.

Do I need to say more? My Philips Jamie Oliver hand blender has proven its worth in my kitchen by helping me whip up main courses for the family, as well as drinks and desserts after a good meal. It not only gets the job done fast, it also does it well. As a busy mom, I definitely appreciate the time-saver bit - It frees me up to do more things with very limited time. Absolutely love it!
