It's been widely reported that Kate used a NutriBullet as she got in shape for her fairytale wedding back in 2011. But it's not just good for healthy juices and smoothies – it can whizz up everything you need for Christmas feast including soup, sauces and some tasty Christmas cocktails.

Kate Middleton's favourite NutriBullet blender

According to the Express, 'The Duchess of Cambridge gets her vitamin hit by making healthy juices with her Nutribullet blender.' Apparently, she 'began drinking natural fruit and vegetable juices before the royal wedding in 2011 to help her slim down for her big day.'

'Kate is reportedly still a fan of juice diets but doesn't follow such a rigorous regime and now only drinks juices for two days a month,' the paper adds.

This variation has a 900-watt motor, which is 50% more powerful than previous models. Its specially designed blinds and and patented cyclonic action 'bursts open seeds, cracks through stems, and shreds tough skins'. This gets the best out of your fruit and vegetables.

The NutriBullet 900W comes with two cups, a 'tall' and an 'oversized' and two lids – a 'stay fresh' lid that you can use when you are popping your drink in the fridge to enjoy later, and a flip top for on-the-go drinks. We wonder if the duchess takes that one on the school run?

It's not just Kate that loves the Nutribullet. Amazon reviews are glowing for the NutriBullet. 'I have tried and tested many blenders, and by far this is one of my best purchases. And it looks awesome on my counter-top,' says one happy customer. 'It has crushed ice, nuts and stems of all the fruit and vegetables I have used. Nothing seems to make this bullet work 'hard'.'

That's praise enough for us.
