When it comes to making “green smoothies” high speed blenders are the best blenders to use. High speed blenders are powerful enough to thoroughly blend up tough leafy greens such as kale, collard greens and parsley, making them into delicious green smoothies.
High speed blenders are also able to perform certain tasks that “regular” blenders are not able to do, e.g., make nut butters, grind coffee beans, and create “really” smooth drinks.
Another benefit of high speed blenders is that they break down the food into tiny pieces and that make them much easier to be absorbed by our bodies, giving us the most food value per unit of food. High speed blenders blend so thoroughly that they break down cell walls, unlocking the maximum amount of nutrients, antioxidants and phytonutrients that you chewing alone can’t do.
High speed blenders save you time:
- No need to chop up food before putting into the blender’s pitcher, e.g., carrots, apples, etc. It is able to handle larger chunks of food
- No need to add items in stages as they have enough power to handle all at once
- Clog up much less
- Blending time is reduced
- Cleaning – Add one cup hot water with one drop dish soap to the pitcher, run it through one blend cycle, rinse with water and the blender is clean and ready for its next use
Here is my list of the top high speed blenders:
