As a really busy mum, the only way I can seem to keep up my intake of fruit and veg is is by drinking smoothies with a nice dash of protein powder when I need it. After using a competitor smoothie blender for a while, I was given the opportunity to review the Breville Boss to Go Plus, the big brother of the Breville Boss to Go (see my comparison chart of the two later in the post). Here is my Breville the Boss to Go review.
I’m one of those strange people that will eat more fruit if it’s prepared a certain way. For example, if a watermelon is in the fridge, I won’t just go and cut a piece off to eat it. But if it’s cut into cubes, I will. The same with an apple. I prefer eating an apple when it’s cut up. I love fruit salads because of the fact they’re all cut up into nice little pieces.
The same goes for smoothies, it feels really good to know that I’m drinking something really tasty that’s packed full of goodness. If you were to separate all the ingredients, I just wouldn’t eat them all on their own. I guess it’s a cheats way to boosting my immune system.
So when I was able to review the new Breville Boss to Go, you can just imagine how glad I was that’d I’d have something to make my immune boosting so much easier given how picky (and lazy) I am.

The performance of the Breville Boss to Go Plus
Well, I’m lucky to have a popular competitor machine to compare the Breville Boss to Go Plus against (think Bullet) and I am extremely impressed with the performance of the Breville.
The Breville Boss to Go is a surprisingly powerful machine and whips up a smoothie in under 10 seconds with absolutely no lumps, even when placing a whole frozen banana in it or ingredients like nuts or frozen berries. There’s nothing worse than drinking a smoothie, especially with a straw, and getting a gigantic chunk stuck or in your mouth or stuck in the straw. Now that’s not a ‘smoothie’, is it?
In terms of the consistency of the smoothies, the Breville Boss to Go certainly exceeds its competitor for being able to really refine the texture to an extremely smooth consistency. This is great for kids too.
The other thing I love is the number of tumblers it comes with and the great lids so you can drink your smoothie on the go. I can definitely see myself taking my smoothie along with me for kindy drop offs, especially when baby number two comes and I’m juggling two kids!
The other thing I tried was the grinding function using the stainless steel grinding container. Wow! Again, with little effort, the Breville Boss to Go can instantly turn almonds into almond meal!
But one of my absolute favourite parts of the Breville Boss to Go is the fact that the blade assembly DOES NOT have a seal. The competitor machine (Nutri Bullet) I have does and it’s an absolute pain in the bum to keep clean.
So there you have it, my Breville Boss to Go Plus review. Such a great way for lazy fruit and veg eaters like me (and my son) to keep healthy!

What’s the difference between the Breville Boss to Go Plus and Breville Boss to Go?
For some time I didn’t actually realise there was a difference between the Boss to Go Plus and the Boss to Go other than the Plus came with extra tumblers and a grinding tumbler. The fact is, they are a tiny bit different in the technical department. I’ve put the comparison together so you can see the difference. The main difference is the power – 1000 vs 800 watts.
