Best Blenders for Smoothies

Going on a health food kick and want to make it easy? Or maybe you just want to inject more fruits into your diet and you want an easy way to do it. Or hey, maybe you just like smoothies. Well, unless you really fancy the idea of spending three to five dollars (or more) on one every time you want one, you’re going to need a blender and that means knowing which ones give you the most bang for your buck. You could opt for the fancy ‘smoothie blenders’ or ‘smoothie machines’, but these are basically a marketing ploy to make you spend more money. What you want is a good blender; one that will last a long time and will create consistently good smoothies, among other things. We’ve compiled a list of the top 5 blenders to help you create delicious smoothies to eat anytime you want.

  1. Vitamix: (5000/5200)

Vitamix isn’t precisely cheap, but if you drink many smoothies, it should pay for itself within a year. The best feature of this blender is its ability to handle both frozen fruits and uncut fruits with ease. It’s also heavier so it’s less likely to rock around if you’re blending things like frozen fruit and ice. Cheaper blenders won’t have this feature, or at least it won’t do it very well, and that means you are more limited in what you can do. If you’re looking for a powerhouse of a blender which can handle anything you throw at it, then a Vitamix is probably the best way to go. However, it’s not cheap; save your dollars!

  1. Blendtec Total Blender

Want something with a more futuristic appearance? The Blendtec gives you a powerful motor (1500 watts), an electronic display with no knobs or dials and it has a self timer and auto-adjust feature to make sure that no matter what you’re blending, it blends properly! Blendtec is more powerful than Vitamix and it’s more portable, but keep in mind that it’s also lighter and more prone to rocking around when it’s grinding ice! Like the Vitamix, it’s not cheap, but think of it as an investment in your health and you’ll be fine.

  1. Breville Hemisphere Control Blender

The Vitamix and Blendtec are pretty cool, but if you’re still new to blending and you don’t need something for every day use, then you probably don’t want to spend in excess of $500! The Breville Hemisphere is a good way to get used to blending without the heavy cost. It has a good system of blending wherein heavy ingredients are forced to the bottom of the container to be properly ground up by the blades and while it’s not nearly as powerful as the Blendtec, it gets the job done.

  1. Hamilton Beach Single Serve Blender

The Hamilton Beach Single Serve isn’t meant for a family; it’s an easy way to get your daily shot and go! This is probably the cheapest blender around, but it is pretty good at what it does. It has a 175 watt motor, gives you a built-in blade, can be used to make smoothies from even frozen ingredients and does a good job at keeping everything properly distributed. It’s not nearly as powerful as the other ones, but if you’re looking for a way to make a good smoothie-and can take the cup with you while travelling-then this one isn’t bad at all. Enjoy!

  1. Oster Beehive Blender

Finally, there is the Oster Beehive blender which makes our list because it just looks so cool and has 500 watts of power behind it. However, it works best on non-frozen ingredients; it won’t really do much for whole fruit or frozen fruit. But it looks pretty cool, it’s easy to use, and it’s easy to keep clean. If you don’t need to blend frozen stuff and you want something affordable and gorgeous, this is a pretty good blender to consider.

Of course there are plenty of other blenders out there, but these are some of the best of the best, best of the affordable and best of the single serve. So, depending on what you need, one of these blenders should be able to give you the perfect smoothie. Enjoy!
