You have heard us say many times that you don't need a fancy blender to make green smoothies.
And it's true! Start with what you have right now… and what you can afford. That's the most important thing to make this a sustainable healthy habit.
Yet there is def a difference with these higher end blenders. The better the blender, the less work you have to do. And that means less prep, less time blending and better results. If you're ready to take the plunge and make the investment, you're probably wondering which blender to buy. “Should I get a Vitamix or a Blendtec?” is a very popular question I'm asked. This video can help you make that decision for yourself. It's all about personal preference at this level. You can also check out our comprehensive Blender Guide to learn about other favorites blenders that we recommend.
Battle of the Blenders: Vitamix VS Blendtec
Vitamix and Blendtec are both amazing blending machines and either one is definitely worth owning. They both have insanely powerful motors that will liquify your apples whole, turn your spinach into liquid greens in a matter of seconds and cut your smoothie making time in half. So what's the difference? Why is one better than the other? Well, that totally depends on your personal preference.
In order to give you an unedited look at how some top-of-the-line Vitamix and Blendtec blenders work, I asked Ryan (my husband) and Dan (our friend… who also works with me at SGS) to do a battle of the blenders. Watch this video to see how each blender did. You may be surprised! I know I was.
