Best blenders for green smoothies


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!”

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.

    I just purchased a NutriBullet, and have been using it for my smoothies the last couple weeks. I have been using their recipes since they are obviously built around the size of their cups. But I would really like to also try your recipes…do you know if your recipes will fit in their “tall” cup? Or is there a way I should modify them while I am adding ingredients to fit?
    Thank you!!

      Hi Joe,

      I LOVE my NutriBullet and love blending our recipes with it!! We simply suggest halving our recipes and adding a little additional liquid base to ensure everything blends smoothly!

      Cheers 🙂

    I just wanted to pop in and say that after purchasing your book I have a NEW found LOVE LOVE of green smoothies. I have been trying to make this a habit for years now and can say your recipes have definitely made that easier! Not to mention that your recipes are helping me to sell my other half on a green smoothie every day as well! Okay so that point – I would like to recommend the New Oster Pro 1200. I have had AMAZING results at well blended smoothies with this little bad boy, and it has a GREAT price point. Thanks for being awesome!

    I have both the NutriBullet and Cuisinart Smart Stick and both are great for making smoothies. I especially like the Smart Stick for traveling and being able to whip up a smoothie in my hotel room!

      Hi Sara,

      You’re right! Stick blenders are perfect for blendin’ on the go. Thank you so much for sharing!

      Cheers 🙂

    I had an Oster forever and just moved up to a Blendtec and I love it!! I tried my friend’s Vitamix first but didn’t like the tamper or the sharp blades.
    My Blendtec makes a perfect smoothie every time. Great soup too!

      Hi RJ,

      Jadah loves her Blendtec too!! Happy blending!

    I’m new to this…and I’m excited to get myself and my family healthy.
    Have you used coconut water in your smoothie recipes? Also…I’m buying a Nutri Bullet RX to get my smoothie on…hope it does the job. 🙂

      Hi Kristen,

      We love blendin’ with coconut water! Coconut water is filled with electrolytes and potassium, which are two nutrients your body craves when expending lots of energy. It’s low in calories, fat, and sugar meaning that this is the liquid-base you want when working out.

      And we love the Nutri Bullet RX, great choice!

    how many time one should take smoothie in a day.
    once only for break fast rest of the meals can be normal.

    • SGS Rawkstar 3.31.2015 at 6:30 pm #

      Hi Kausi,

      Our goal for your is to drink at least one 2-cup serving green smoothie a day in addition to your regular diet. If you would like, you can replace 1 or 2 meals with green smoothies. If you drink green smoothies as meal replacements, make sure to add a protein boost (plant-based protein powder, nut milk, nut butter), or snack on some nuts or a hard-boiled egg 30-60 minutes after you drink your green smoothie.

    I forgot to mention, I add a protein powder and flax seed to the smoothie too.
