    What is the best blender for making smoothies?

    I am in the market for a blender that can blend frozen fruits and possibly crush ice.  I would prefer personal size but also will look at standard sized machines too.  Have any tried and true results to share?

    Hey Dawn nice to see you ! Well try out the blender;  Hamilton Beach wave Maker, I have it and it's pretty good.

    We've had a Vitamix for over ten years and wouldn't consider any other blender. It's high powered and will completely blend frozen fruit and ice. We use it for smoothies, to mill grain, knead dough, freeze ice cream and blend hot soups. I have a friend who vouches for the Ninja QB900B Master Prep blender. She says she likes it better than her Vitamix! And I've also read good reviews on the Nutri-Bullet NBR-12. You can look them all up on Amazon and read about the pros and cons of each one. Happy blending!

    Hope I'm not too late with my response here, just saw your question now. But yeah I totally agree with vespawoolf about the Vitamix. I've had mine for about 2 years and wouldn't recommend anything else. Sure they are a bit expensive, but it's worth every penny, trust me.

    I'd recommend just getting a refurbished 5200 model which will save you around $100 or so. The refurbished ones work just as good as the brand new machines.

    Here is a pretty good review of the Vitamix 5200 that I just found if you're interested in seeing more about how it works: http://www.charlottesvineyard.com/vitamix-5200-review/

    You can also get free shipping if you buy through the link on that page or use coupon code 06-008159 which will save you about $25.

    Let us know how it goes if you buy one!

      Thanks Steve
      I did actually make a purchase~ after  few nice reviews from friends, they suggested the Ninja, so far so good.  I did really like the sounds of the vitamix but it was out of my price range.  Thanks again

    I think, you can search for comparison articles on google. You will find a suitable product relies on a comparison of features, price, ... this will help you make the best choice for yourself.
    For myself, I prefer Blendtec TB-621-20 Total Blender
