What are the best blenders for smoothies right now?

Are you looking for the top smoothie blender or maker right now? There are so many to choose from it can be daunting but this guide should help.

A smoothie actually is a drink prepared by beating fruits and or vegetables, into a think consistency with yoghurt, milk, fruit juice or water. With so many blenders on the market to choose from, finding the one to suit you can be difficult . Below you can find some of the ones I would recommend. The good news is that you can get one for as little as $15 meaning that you do not have to break the bank. The way I see it is the cheaper the blender the more money you have to spend on fruit and vegetables to make your delicious drinks.

I had being eyeing up a smoothie blender for quite a while and managed to talk my boyfriend into buying me one for my Birthday. Unfortunately the one I own is a Kenwood and I cannot find the same model available in the USA. I have found that I eat less chocolate now that I can enjoy a sweet tasting smoothie instead, so they have helped me curb my chocolate addiction. They are a fabulous way to ensure you get 5 pieces of fruit and vegetables per day. The smoothies help me keep my weight down and I am planning on using them as part of my diet regime in late Summer whenever I try to lose baby weight. I will likely experiment with different fruits including blueberries to try and get as many different pieces of fruit on a regular basis.

Some things to consider when choosing a smoothie blender

If you are on the lookout for a top smoothie blender there are some things you need to think about:-

1) Budget - this will determine which model you can buy

2) Color - do you want one to fit in with the rest of your kitchen or have you no preference. The majority of the top smoothie blenders are white, black or silver

3) The number of people you will be making drinks for - you may need a more powerful model which may cost more if you need to provide for several people at one time

4) Whether you want to take it on holidays with you or not- perhaps one of the travel blenders would be better.

This product has an Amazon rating of 4.2 stars and is a great purchase for those that like to have a spare one or take one while they are travelling. You can also drink out of the jar, which is good if you are short of drinking glasses.

 

My Smoothie blender is by Russell Hobbs

My Smoothie maker is by Russell Hobbs, a popular brand here in the UK and reasonably priced too. I have taken a picture of the blades inside my blender to illustrate how sharp they are. This particular smoothie blender is available for less than $50.

I have to confess I use it more often in Summer when preparing milkshakes and smoothies for my little girl and her friends. It is quite often a dessert after our dinner.

My favourite one

I love the machine below hence the lengthy review.

Oster Smoothie Blender

This Oster 4093 Classic beehive Blender comes in silver. This will surely compliment your clean and well-organized kitchen. It will look good along with your other kitchen appliances like the toaster and the rice cooker.

Once you have this product, you will enjoy it a lot because of its 500 watt motor that is capable of several functions like chopping, grating, grinding, crushing and blending. The glass container of this blender is made with ribbed-and-tapered glass materials for safety and durability. It comes with one year warranty to give you peace of mind.

KitchenAid Smoothie Blender

If you want a heavy -duty machine, Kitchen Aid 5-Speed Blenders with Polycarbonate Jars are the right product for you. It has a motor with .9 HP and great Intelli-Speed electric controls. It can handle great pressure and continuous use. You can prepare shakes for a good number of guests, and if you have a restaurant, you can use it to serve shakes and smoothies to your customers.

It is made of a die-cast high quality metal base, stainless steel blade and steel reinforced coupler that could guarantee extreme operation and durability. The Polycarbonate Jar is hard to break and very durable too. It also has a huge capacity of up to 56 ounce.

You will be completely satisfied if you will buy this and its manufacturer offers a 1 year replacement warranty without any hassle and inconvenience.

Expensive Smoothie Makers Over $100

The more expensive pieces of equipment are for everyday use. They are trustworthy and reliable and should be durable. Many of them have warranties as well as a Amazon rating stating their reputability. I would not recommend putting the money into one of these though if you are only planning on making the odd smoothie during the summer months. Instead pick one of the cheaper machines.

If you want to start your own business you will definately need a smoothie maker like this one. It might be useful for Mums who are childminders and want to make the kids a healthy drink on a regular basis. This particular smoothie blender has a shatterproof jug (this make be useful when tiny hands get the hold of this and drop it).

Making a smoothie does not need to be expensive

I know fruit to make smoothies can be very expensive but it does not need to be. My husband and I frequently go shopping in the evenings and normally pick up discounted fruit. You can get bananas for as little as 12 pence each (under 10 cents) and discounted strawberries for around one dollar. The basic smoothies also contain orange juice which can be purchased very cheaply. It works out much cheaper than buying your own.

Other things you may need to make a great smoothie

Obviously you need fruit and juice to make a great tasting smoothie but there are other essential things too such as ice cubes! Perhaps you might want to treat yourself to a new ice cube rack specially for your smoothies.

You might also want some cool drinking glasses and straws to showcase your fabulous drink!
