Best Blender for Smoothies

First things first, let’s talk about the blender situation. I know there are hundreds of blenders on the market and it can be very daunting to find the right one for you. One thing I have learned with the handful of blenders that I’ve owned is that quality matters. Usually, quality and price coincide and it’s totally true. I’ve found that the more expensive and higher quality blender I have, the more success I have with what I am making…especially smoothies. The most recent and BEST blender I have ever had is a Vitamix. We have the Vitamix 5200 and it runs you about $430 on Amazon. I do not have a single bad thing to say about this beast. It’s super powerful, easy to clean, and it makes making smoothies along with other things a breeze. I can tell you right now that this is the best blender I have ever owned and there’s no turning back.

Smoothie Blender Recommendations

I did want to share some other great blenders that I have personally owned and recommend depending on your price point.

  • Low cost: Ninja BL480D Blender $99 this is a great single serve blender for those that want to conserve space. Plus you can’t beat the price point.
  • Medium cost: Ninja Kitchen System $229 I’ve owned the Ninja Kitchen System for about 5 years and I love that it’s interchangeable between a blender, food processor, and single serve smoothie blender. For $229, you really do get it all! 
  • High cost: Vitamix 5200 $429 at the highest price point, the Vitamix is THE BEST kitchen appliance I’ve ever owned. It will literally crush, pulverize, mix, or puree anything and everything because it’s so powerful! I highly recommend, 10/10!

How to Make a Smoothie

If you’re wondering how to make a smoothie, don’t worry, you’re not the only one Googling this! Smoothies are such a great thing to know how to make if you are in college, need a quick breakfast, or have “nothing in your cabinets.” I’m going to walk you through exactly how to make the perfect smoothie every single time.

We thought it would be useful to create an equation of sorts so that you can use what you have at home!

Step 1: Assemble Ingredients

Smoothies are all about finding that perfect ratio of fruit to liquid. That’s why you’ll see in our basic smoothie recipe, we have about 1 cup of liquid to 2 cups of frozen fruit. You’ll also see that we don’t use ice in our smoothies because we find that ice dilutes the flavor and defeats the purpose of using frozen fruit!

  • 2 cups frozen fruit (banana, strawberries, mixed berry, pineapple, tropical blend, etc.)
  • 1 cup liquid (orange juice, almond milk, coconut water, coconut milk, water)

We say 2:1 with a grain of salt because everyone has their own preference. Some people like to drink smoothies with a straw and others like it thick enough to be eaten with a spoon. So, start with 1 cup of liquid and add more as you wish. In addition to the 2:1 ratio of fruit to liquid, you can also add other ingredients such as protein powder, greens, Greek yogurt, seeds, etc.

Step 2: Blend

Now it’s time to add all of your ingredients to your blender. Remember that you can always add more liquid, but you can’t take it away! We suggest blending on high until everything is smooth. If you are using something like kale or spinach, it may take some time for the blender to do it’s just, you just need to be patient. Depending on how frozen your fruit is, you may need to stop your blender and scrape the sides with a spatula and/or add more liquid!

Step 4: Serve

Once you’ve got your smoothie recipe at the desired consistency, it’s time to serve. You’ve got choices: cup or bowl. Smoothie bowls are all the rage right now, but you can always keep it classic with a cup or glass. Don’t forget about the toppings. If you’re anything like me, you don’t skimp when it comes to toppings. Here are some of my favorites:
