Smoothies can be a very healthy way of adding to your daily fruit and vegetables intake. You can put almost anything in a smoothie and if done correctly they can taste amazing. You just have to add your ingredients to a smoothie blender and blend away, it’s that simple.
What makes a good blender?
A decent smoothie blender will usually have a heavy base, having a heavy base makes the blender a lot more stable. You will want a blender with at least 500 watts of power. The higher the power the quicker and easier it is to blend your smoothie. You will want the glass on the cup to be durable and easy to clean, if its able to go in the dishwasher even better.
I have created a comparison chart which should help you decide which is the best blender for smoothies, and then following from that i have created a review of my top 5 blenders.
Best Blender chart:
Looking at the comparison you can see that i have given the Hamilton Beach the best score, this is purely because it does everything we need to do for a very small price. $19.99 for a decent blender is very cheap.
Coming a very close second is the ninja BL204 i actually own this blender and its a excellent all round blender. But as we are only judging this post on the best blender for smoothies, i had to give it to the Hamilton Beach. Both the Ninja and the Hamilton Beach make very good smoothies, but like i said the Hamilton Beach is a lot cheaper.
