What is the Best Blender for Creating Super Healthy Smoothies and Vegetable Drinks?

What is the Best Blender for Creating Super Healthy Smoothies and Vegetable Drinks?

In my book I explain how to make my Hair Growth Smoothie, which I recommend my readers drink at least three times a week for breakfast. It’s a nutrient packed low-sugar smoothie containing a large helping of amino acids, fats, vitamins and minerals that help your body grow hair. Since I was discussing smoothies and blenders in the forum we got on to talking about what is the best blender to use and whether or not you should use a juicer. Well, I whole heartedly recommend using a blender over a juicer because a blender gives you the fibre, not just the juice and you can add things like egg yolks and oils.

So, after doing some research, here are my top ten recommendations. If you’re strapped for time, go for a single serving blender. If you’ve got stacks of cash, you’ll be spoilt for choice with some of the ultimate blending machines…
