Since so many of my readers ask me what kind of blender I use, I wanted to show you the one in my kitchen and tell you why I like it.
There are a lot of great machines out there, but I’m in love with my Blendtec.
Try this simple smoothie recipe and check it out in action!
Simple Green Smoothie Recipe
This recipe is super easy and simple, and great for beginners.
- 1-2 cups mixed baby spinach and other baby mixed greens (the most tender and sweet)
- 1/2 -3/4 cup pineapple (frozen or fresh)
- 5-6 strawberries (frozen or fresh)
- 3 T hemp seeds (optional)
- 1 cup almond milk, other nut milk, or coconut water
Add all of your ingredients to a high speed blender and blend on high until creamy. Add more fruit if it’s not quite sweet enough for you – make it so you like it!
I use a Blendtec and have for years because of how easily it blends everything from smoothies to nut butters to batters. I use it daily, and it’s really stood the test of time. I replaced my old one a couple years ago in favor of the newer Wildside model.
I have nothing bad to say about the Vitamix, it’s also a fantastic blender! I think I mainly prefer the Blendtec because of the way the blade is made – I like how it pulls the ingredients down into the jar as you’re blending making for a very low maintenance experience.
And you can also get a great deal on a refurbished one and save a bunch of money here:
I’m totally in love with green smoothies and having a good quality blender is non-negotiable for me at this point in how much I use mine.
