Blender Reviews

The use of blenders has been rising dramatically since people are becoming more health conscious. Approximately 24 million blenders were sold in the United States in the last 7 years.  That’s because people are now realising how quick and easy it is to whip up tasty nutritious food in their blender.

I personally use my blender at least once per day, and often a lot more times than that.  I literally couldn’t live without my blender and have a large collection of blenders now which I love to review so I can help people become blending ninjas in their own kitchens.

Here are all my blender reviews so you can choose the perfect blender for your needs.

Losing weight with blended food is actually much easier than eating a standard diet.

Blended meals are a very easy way to make sure you are hitting your calorie goals and saves you time so you actually stick to your diet.

There are SO many benefits of losing weight or just following a blended diet plan.

I personally have lost 56 pounds by replacing 2 of my meals with blended meals.  For over 7 years now I’ve been helping millions of other people to do the same.

I created a series of healthy, calorie counted blender diet plans to help you easily lose weight, feel full and also eat delicious food.

Here are all my blender diet plans to help you reach your goals fast.

The Ultimate Smoothie Blender Guide; Vitamix 5200 Blender, Professional-Grade, 64 oz. Container, Black

This is pretty much the industry standard for being the best blender ever.  I own this blender and it is honestly the best purchase I ever made.  I use it multiple times every day and cheap blenders just do not compare.  If you make a lot of blended food, you absolutely won’t regret buying this Vitamix blender.

Sistema Shaker To Go Smoothie Bottle

The Ultimate Smoothie Blender Guide; Sistema shaker bottle

This is my number one favorite smoothie bottle that I keep going back to time after time. 

It’s also very reasonably priced, and you can get it in most Amazon stores across the world. 

Here is what I love about it:

  • It has a large capacity which is important to me.  When you cram in loads of spinach into your smoothies, it makes the volume much larger – hence the need for a bigger smoothie bottle. The capacity is 700ml / 23.67oz / 2.96cups.  Enough for a nice filling 500 calorie complete meal smoothie.
  • It doesn’t leak.  This is my primary concern about smoothie bottles – they have to be leak proof, because who wants to be covered in thick green slime?
  • It can be easily cleaned by hand or in the dishwasher.
  • It is very easy to drink from – just flip open the lid and drink.
  • It doesn’t have a built in straw or any areas of the bottle that can’t be reached.  Straws are a mold hazard waiting to happen.  I like to be able to see and clean all areas of my smoothie bottles.
  • It is long lasting and robust.  I have had mine for years and they are still going strong.  I now have 4 of these, 2 for me and 2 for my husband.  You can get them in a range of colors like pink, blue and green.
