30 Bananas a Day!

super quick question about blenders/lumpy gross smoothies

quick question- do vitamix/other expensive blenders make real smooth smoothies? I've got the cheapest blender and it jeeps making lumpy smoothies-it's gross. Thinking of getting a better make but will it actually make a difference?

cheers.

It will make all the difference you have ever dreamt of. Even with a cheap blender though you can make smoother smoothies by making sure the water:food ratio is correct. When making the smoothie just slowly pour water into the top until it really starts to get pulled down into the blade. Personally I have a cheap blender and have been making smoothies with it for months. All comes down to the amount of high water content fruits/vegetables mixed with not so high water content fruits/vegetables. I vitamix is definitely the blender that will get any smoothie job done but it is also doable with a cheap blender as well. Good luck with your future smoother smoothies. Much love.

thanks pal.

Sure, a Vitamix makes anything you throw in it silky smooth without much effort involved on your part BUT you should be able to make a smooth smoothie in most cases in the cheapest of blenders. With a pure fruit smoothie you should have no problems at all...if you are, you aren't letting it blend for long enough or not adding enough liquid FIRST. If you're blending something involving greens or veggies you'll want to blend them on their own first with just the liquid until they get completely smooth and THEN add fruit. But yeah, always put plenty of liquid in the blender first.

great stuff. thanks!

I used a black and decker then the ninja for a while. Today i caved ordered a vitamix qvc has a decent deal on one today. I cant wait to get it having used one before I know what i'm in for. 

I could have saved myself a lot of headaches and gotten one to begin with instead of the ninja but I didnt have the money and did not realize at the time just how good they are.

I sometimes add a TINY bit of xanthan gum powder to a green smoothie to make the texture all consistent and creamy :) Although I'm sure it's not raw, it's not bad for your body and I only add a very small amount, like.. 1/8th of a tsp

Though I pine for a vitamix, I have a cheap blender that won't die, (used twice a day most days for 3 years) that I can fit 10 bananas into.  I have to add water though, about a pint, but that seems ok for me.  Putting a little frozen fruit helps with the texture as well, though I know fresh is better.

it does make a difference! esp if you drink green smoothies with celery ie any veg with fibrous bits.

also with a cheap blender, it burnt out on me with continuous usage too.

and you can make super yum banana ice-cream with powerful blenders, the cheap blenders really fail at that

it all depends on how much of a staple that smoothies are to your everyday diet, then you'll know if its a worthy investment :)

cheers
