So, you’re walking through the store, and you come to the blender section…
“Oh, boy,” you think to yourself. There are blenders with square pitchers, round pitchers, glass pitchers, plastic pitchers. Some have 12 speeds, while others go at the speed of a bullet. There are even blenders that almost cost as much as it does to pay monthly rent for an apartment! “I’m just trying to be healthy by drinking green smoothies, but I don’t know what blender to use!”
Well, we’re here to help you blender shop!
But first, we have a little secret: Any blender works for making green smoothies. We both started with a normal, everyday blender to make green smoothies. Sure, they didn’t blend all of the ingredients to a creamy consistency in 30 seconds or less, but still blended delicious tasting drinks that were healthy for our bodies.
All that being said, nobody wants to buy a cheap blender that’s not going to do a decent job. That’s why we created a list of our favorite affordable blenders. All of these blenders are under $120, and have some of the best reviews out there. Check out that list here.
Quick tip for eliminating green smoothies with leafy chunks: First, add leafy greens and liquid to blender. Blend until smooth. Next add remaining ingredients and blend again!
