    It's still the beginning of the year, which means I am still attempting to eat healthy and work out. But a well-known fact about me is I absolutely despise both of those things.

    Truly. I am in my mid-twenties, and I have to drag myself (while I kick and scream) to basically do any sort of physical activity. I even pray every morning that I don't cross paths with a pizza, because then it's game over. Basically, I need something in my life that will make healthy eating easy and more bearable. (PS: I still enjoy pizza! I am simply trying to introduce other, less-greasy foods into my diet as well.)

    Enter this personal blender and to-go cup ($30), which makes delicious smoothies and then easily detaches so you can take it on-the-go. Could this be the solution to easing my healthy-eating hatred?!

    Honestly...I THINK IT CAN! It has over 1,600 reviews and a 4.3-star rating on Amazon — so things are looking very promising.

    Promising review: "This Epica Personal Blender is Great! I really like it. I wanted a blender that could easily and quickly make smoothies in the morning before going to work without all the cleanup, and this one does it, just about perfectly. I am able to make my smoothies in a snap and cleanup is effortless. The bottle is perfect and the lid is nice, tight, and secure. This is a huge help in my taking a step towards healthy living. Plus, I don't have a big kitchen, so I didn't need anything that took up a lot of space or with a lot of extra attachments — it's perfect for that. And it is a fabulous price for what a quality product it is." —LLGirl

    The motor is powerful enough to blend up frozen fruits and veggies, making it ideal for a healthy breakfast. And pro tip: Because it's on the smaller side, many reviewers suggest not using it to straight-up crush ice.

    Promising review: "I use this for making a smoothie out of almonds, ice cream, peanut butter, chocolate syrup, a banana, and milk. It does a awesome job, a lot better than I thought it would for the price. It takes probably 40-50 seconds to liquefy the contents of what I'm using. Also very easy to clean and assemble. The manual does state its not recommend for ice and a few other thicker ingredients. So if you are wanting to use ice this blender probably is not for you. Otherwise I recommend it 100%." —Kasey

    And the take-away cup makes it convenient to literally just blend and go! So it's super easy to bring along your smoothie on your commute.

    Promising review: "I very much enjoy this personal blender! I use it in the morning to make a smoothie to drink on my commute so I'm not starving by lunchtime. I use frozen fruit and it's nice and cold. I recommend adding your liquids first (water, milk, yogurt, kefir, etc.), then dropping in frozen or fresh items. You may need to shake up the container in between blends. Don't hold down the button too long — just pulse until everything is crushed, then press down for 30 seconds to get a smoothie consistency.

    My favorite recipe is:

    1 cup yogurt (low fat vanilla)

    1 cup milk (or almond milk)

    1 tbsp chia seeds

    1/3 cup raspberries

    1/3 cup blackberries

    1/3 dark pitted cherries (all frozen)" —ag.fabozzi
