Many people ask me should they go with Blendtec or Vitamix when choosing an blender.
The two blenders are in tight competition for the green smoothie makers market :-). Although many people may choose a more affordable option (such as Omni , Ninja, or other) I found that a cheaper blender just wasn’t doing the job when it came to blending tough greens and veggies (and nuts, and seeds…).
So if you can afford it, the investment is well worth the money.
As far as which blender to choose: Vitamix versus Blendtec?
Well, I can assure you personally that both these blenders make green smoothies like champs! They turn spinach, kale, almonds, sunflower seeds, berries, bananas and water into delicious green smoothies in a matter of seconds (for realzzz).
The bottom line:
Both blenders are great choices if you want to become a hard core, green smoothie drinking machine like I am. No leafy chunks with either blender and the smoothies were made in easily under 2 minutes.
If you like more features, care how it looks/fits on your counter and like frothier smoothies— I say go with the Blendtec.
If you prefer creamy smoothies, a simple look, and a super solid blender— go with the Vitamix.
Both have 7 year warranties, blend like kings and will make your green smoothie days even more exciting.
Save some money and help the environment!
If you need to save some money, you can buy the refurbished version right through Blendtec and Vitamix. They still come with the rockin’ warranty and look brand new— it’s really a great way to save some money!
Buy a Blendtec Total Blender.
For all my blending recipes – including smoothies, soups, nut butters and milks, I use Vitamix. If you don’t already own a VitaMix, I strongly encourage you to check out what this machine is capable of! For more information about VitaMix you can go directly to the VitaMix website.
