Best Rated Blenders: How To Make The Perfect Smoothie!

Updated on May 30, 2013

What You Need to Make a Smoothie.

So you want to make a good smoothie do you?

Before you even begin thinking about making a smoothie, you must make sure that you have all the necessary requirements and equipment to actually produce a good quality result. There are several fundamental and essential things you must have to be able to make a smoothie which are...

  • Ingredients. (Healthy fruits and vegetables.)
  • Milk (or various other additional liquids.)
  • Sugar (or an alternative like Honey.)
  • A High Quality Blender.

The main focus of this Hub will be to guide you on making the best smoothie you can with your available ingredients, but also on which blenders do the best job overall and for a very good price!

The Perfect Combination of Ingredients.

Smoothies are great healthy alternatives to high sugar or fat count snacks such as chocolate bars or various brands of sweets. However, to get the same mouth-watering effect as your usual high calorie snack would provide, it is an idea that you think about some good combinations of fruits to make a delicious concoction. Some of the most popular mixures of ingredients for a smoothie are...

  • Apple and Mango.
  • Banana, Strawberry and Kiwi.
  • Raspberry and Peach.
  • Fresh strawberry with a dash of lemon.

Whilst these are the most commonly used recipe or 'mixes' for a smoothie, the beauty is that you are free to put in your own preferred fruits, according to your specific tastes. Therefore, you should not be turned off from trying a new combination of fruits and ingredients based on what some old cook book says, as it really comes down to pure personal preference.

(That being said I wouldn't recommend that you mix completely absurd ingredients like asparagus with orange, but you never know when you might just create the new trend for smoothies!)

Best Rated Smoothie Blender for The Job...

Here is the part where you might be asking which blender would guarantee the best tasting results for your smoothie. Although, you first need to establish how much you are willing to invest into buying a blender, so that you don't go over your budget. (Especially, when you don't need to spend 1,000s of pounds to get the job done!)

There are great ranges of blenders in the two links I've provided to the right of this text, and I highly recommend that you take a look at some of them as they are all under $200! Which is both perfect from a financial point of view, and from a quality point of view as these are professional models, which will almost guarantee a fantastic end result!

Although, one of my personal favourites is the Miallegro Mitutto 550 Watt Immersion Hand Blender, which not only provides the power to make some of the smoothest concoctions known to man, it also has 4 different blades which provide the ability to professionally enhance the overall texture and taste. What's more, you can purchase this amazing blender for under $100 from

Making Your Perfect Smoothie.

Assuming that you now have your needed equipment and ingredients for making the smoothie, you now need to begin actually making your smoothie!

  1. First take out your blender.
  2. If making a fruit smoothie, place the fruit in the blender first, making sure that a healthy variety of fruits are added.
  3. Next, add the liquid of your choice whether it is milk, ice-cream, fruit juice or even plain simple water.
  4. Add some extra flavouring to your smoothie with some vanilla extract or cinnamon. (Optional.)
  5. Finally, add some ice cubes to the mixture, and make sure that you don't put in so many that you drown out the taste of the smoothie. (1 or 2 is usually best!)

Once you have prepared your new perfect concoction, you should make sure that you have included everything that you would like, before you set the blender to it's "shake", "purée" or "smoothie" setting, and then turn up the speed to around medium.

Congratulations! You have successfully created the perfect smoothie!
