Heads up, friends: I’m so excited to offer my readers not one, but TWO amazing ways to WIN BIG with Breville Canada! Read on to find out how you can enter!
Sometimes, all you need is a little motivation. And sometimes, that motivation comes with three powerful stainless steel blades or a cutting disc surrounded by an Italian-made mesh filter.
A few weeks ago, I was challenged by Breville Canada to inject more colour into my diet. I mean, I’ve always had a pretty balanced approach to eating, but you know how they say it’s important to “eat a rainbow”? Well, previously… I suppose you could say my diet was a little more monochromatic.
Okay, a lot more monochromatic.
Now I’ve always known that the easiest way to increase my servings of fruits and veggies was to enjoy fresh juices and smoothies. But, I lacked the resources and motivation to do anything more than visit the odd juice bar or stock up on cheap strawberries. Then Breville Canada stepped in an said, “Okay, here are the resources and here’s your motivation.”
Was it a sign? I think it was a sign.
First, the motivation. ColourMeHealthy.Breville.com is a super handy nutritional resource to help you easily discover whether juicing, blending (or both!) is best for you. Check out the site for recipe inspiration, interactive juicing guides, nutritional facts, videos and so much more to make the journey to more colourful eating deliciously simple.
My favourite feature? The incredibly helpful and easy-to-follow Fresh Planner. Here, you’ll find a 5-day and 7-day recipe planner (for either juicing or blending) to help add more colour to your daily life. After receiving the Breville Boss and the Juice Fountain Cold XL from Breville Canada, I first played with my own recipe creations so I could familiarize myself with the small appliances and get a feel for their features. However, once comfortable with the products, I buckled down and followed the 5-day program for blending. So simple, so delicious, and so incredibly easy to fit more colour into my diet!
(Psst: Day 5 – Mango, Vanilla & Chia will drop you to your knees. So good!)
Next, the resources – beginning with the Breville Boss. A blender with one-touch superpowers, the Breville Boss is designed with three powerful stainless steel blades contoured to the base of the jug for maximum cutting power and processing results. It blasts through fruits and vegetables in just seconds!
Pictured above are the ingredients for a chilled Melon Berry soup with Mint. Simply combine a handful of chilled (not frozen) pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, watermelon and mint – and blend for about 10 seconds. I’ve owned a few blenders in my lifetime but none have had the absolute power to annihilate ingredients like the Breville Boss. If you’re serious about blending, this is the machine for you.
Currently enjoying bowls and bowls of this bright, vitamin-rich soup!
Next, I know I don’t have to sell you on the benefits of freshly extracted juice, but I do have to shine a spotlight on the Juice Fountain Cold XL. It can extract 2L of nutrient rich juice up to 5x faster than a “cold press” machine!
If you recently caught my Instagram stories, you may have seen apple juice visibly gushing into the reservoir from the Juice Fountain. It’s truly that powerful! With three settings – “Quiet” for soft fruit, “Fast” for every day juicing and “Boost” for hard veggies, you can customize your juicing experience (and noise levels!) to suit your lifestyle.
Another thing that blew me away? There was very little fibrous material left behind! I’m used to cleaning out a wet, pulpy mess when cleaning previous juice extractors. With the Juice Fountain Cold XL, there were a few scrapings of pulp – and even they were practically dry to the touch. Now that’s a juicer!
Be sure to use the Seal and Store Jug; you can store freshly extracted juice in the refrigerator for up to three days.

Wow – sounds fantastic. I still prefer to eat my fruit than drink it but smoothies for dessert are amazingly fun.
Those fruit photos are so beautiful! Love the colour and freshness.
The chilled Melon Berry soup with Mint sounds absolutely refreshing and would be perfect for these hot days!!
I’m a big fan of Breville appliances! Juice Fountain Cold XL sounds amazing and is definitely going on my wish list!
I love the summer months for the fresh produce – I consume SO much! Juicing would be a great addition to that habit for me :)
Looks fantastic! I love the blender full of fruit…..the colours always get me!
Love colourful smoothies.
