Froothie Optimum 9400 Blender Review and Reader Offer

Just over two years ago I wrote a review of the Froothie Optimum 9400 blender. It was the first time I’d ever used a ‘Power Blender’. Until that point, I’d always used mid-range blenders and was become increasingly frustrated with their lack of longevity. (You can read all about my experiences and my side-by-side comparison of the Froothie Optimum 9400 and a mid-range blender in that 2014 post).

However, it probably wasn’t a 100% fair comparison back then as I was comparing my brand new Froothie with a year-old blender. In this post, I thought I’d give an update on my Froothie blender, two years on. Has it withstood the test of time?

I also have a fantastic offer available to my readers. You’ll find details at the end of this post.

Book Launch Update, Events & Giveaways

So my book launched last Wednesday, and what a week it’s been! I’ve been truly overwhelmed by the response it’s received. Thank you so much to everyone that’s purchased the book so far and all the lovely messages you’ve been sending me. I can’t believe how quickly people have got stuck into it, and it’s been wonderful to see your all the pics you’ve been posting online.

Bit of the Good Stuff

Last Wednesday we had a launch event at the Rising Sun pub in Bath (kindly organised by my friend Vip). It was such an amazing night! ✨ So many people turned up (far more than I expected!) I didn’t personally know most of them, so it was great to chat and connect with these lovely people.

The photo below was taken while I was delivering a talk on the book (I’m the blurry person right at the back). I was terrified as I hate public speaking. I was a bit shaky and emotional in places, but I managed to get through it. Phew!

Bit of the Good Stuff Book Launch

After the talk, the pub served a pasta dish from my cookbook and I had brought along some cakes and chocolate truffles for people to sample. With the talk out the way, I started to relax and enjoy myself. Here I am with my dear friends Cheryl and Sian… Continue reading

Easy Vegan Pecan Pie

In today’s post, I’m sharing a recipe for an easy vegan pecan pie. This dish will be perfect for serving in the upcoming festive season. It looks impressive and slices beautifully.

Pecan pie hails from the southern US states. After a google search, I discovered that it’s traditionally made with eggs, butter, refined sugar and corn syrup. I decided to ditch all of these and use some of my favourite plant-based ingredients instead.
