Mango Banana Smoothie Recipe
One of the most refreshing smoothies I like to make in the morning is the mango banana smoothie. Using Braun’s MultiQuick Hand Blender I have any smoothie ready in under 5 minutes! You can customize this mango smoothie to your liking, and use orange juice instead of plant-based milk. This is one of my favorite smoothies – hands down!

What is the best hand blender for home use?
In my honest opinion, Braun has some of the best immersion hand blenders for the home. I grew up watching my parents use their white Braun hand blender to make soups, purées, and smoothies while raving about how practical it was. They purchased their blender almost thirty years ago, and while I was visiting Florida in January 2021, I borrowed it to make this no-bake Lemon Berry Tart recipe.
Braun hand blender parts and attachments
Braun’s immersion hand blenders come with accessories that can be attached or removed with one simple click. These attachments include a bell-shaped anti-splash blending shaft and a 20 oz. beaker, a chopper, and a whisk.
Which Braun hand blender is best?
Both immersion blenders are spectacular, and the big difference is that Braun’s MultiQuick 7 has a touch-sensitive speed control trigger, and Braun’s MQ 5 Vario has 21 easily adjustable speeds.
Braun’s MultiQuick 7 blender turns my favorite frozen fruits into smoothies in under five minutes. This blender uses Active PowerDrive technology with an efficient 700-watt motor for up to 40% faster performance than Braun’s MQ 5 Vario 400-watt motor. The attachments that come with Braun’s hand blenders are dishwasher safe.
If I am in a hurry and want to make a quick breakfast smoothie, I know that Braun’s MultiQuick 7 powerful blender will help me make it in record time. But when I need to mix heavy cream, I prefer Braun’s MQ 5 Vario because setting it at its lowest speed for 1 continuous minute is easier than relying on my pulse while using Braun’s MultiQuick 7 touch-sensitive speed control trigger.
If you are interested in chopping, blending, or shredding fruits, nuts, or vegetables, and making smoothies, soups, or purées, either immersion blender will make your work easy!
How long can I run a hand blender?
Even when you are using the blender to whisk lighter foods such as eggs and cream, avoid using the whisk attachment for longer than 3 minutes in any 10-minute period.
Always allow your hand blender to rest. It is important that the motor unit is only run for 1 minute, no longer, in any 4-minute period, particularly for heavy mixtures.
Are hand blenders worth it?
Yes! For most households, immersion blenders are a great option. Hand blenders are practical, helpful, and do not take up a lot of space. I keep one hand blender in a drawer in the kitchen, and the other hand blender in my pantry.
