READY TO UP YOUR GREEN SMOOTHIE GAME?

WELL, WE’RE READY TO DISH THE DEETS ON TOP BLENDERS!

We’re so excited to help you blender shop! But first, we have a little secret to share with you: Any blender will work for making green smoothies. Yep! I started with a standard blender that was collecting dust in my cupboard. We made our first 100+ green smoothies with this baby. But eventually it died… and I knew it was time to up our game. Since then, at SGS we’ve tested TONS of blenders and wanted to share our favorites with you below in our SGS Blender Guide.

THE TRUTH IS, YOU DON’T NEED A HIGH-POWERED BLENDER TO
MAKE A GREEN SMOOTHIE. BUT YOU WILL GET QUICKER, CREAMIER
& BETTER RESULTS WITH A HIGH-POWERED BLENDER.

smoothies for, how much power you are looking for, and how much money you can spend. So, which will it be?
