    1. A portable, USB-rechargeable, six-blade Tenswall personal size blender that can be used up to 30 times on a single five-hour charge.

    Size: 13 oz.

    Promising review: "I really like this cup. I’ve been on a smoothie craze, but my kids and husband aren’t so it’s difficult to do an individual serving in a regular size blender. This is perfect for fruit and ice or whatever kind of smoothies you’re making. The best is that it then converts to a cup to drink right out of it! Easy to clean as well because they give you two little tools to scrub and wash around the blades and not put your fingers near the blades. It comes with a charger cord as well that you can plug into your computer. If you want to plug it in the wall you will need the portion of the cord that plugs into the socket as it doesn’t come with that. Overall, easy to clean, great size for individual smoothies, and doubles as a cup to drink the smoothie." —Lily D.

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    2. A one-touch, four-blade Hamilton Beach personal blender with a blending jar that also doubles as a travel mug (with a lid), because having fewer things to wash exponentially increases your chances of making more smoothies.

    Amazon

    Size: 14 oz.

    Promising review: "One thing that used to keep me from making more protein smoothies is the fact that we had a full-sized blender and I hated having to wash it after each use. I don't always have enough dishes to run the dishwasher daily, so I'd end up hand washing the glass container and it was a pain...This morning I added crushed ice, water, chocolate protein powder, a banana, and almond butter and pressed the button. Within seconds it was all blended perfectly and ready to drink. I love this thing! After it was finished, I removed the cup from the base and drank my drink. It was so easy to clean too! I am really surprised at how powerful it is for being so small. Great product if you make smoothies daily." —RLH

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in two sizes and six colors).

    3. A four-blade Cincred personal blender with a double-duty cup (for mixing and drinking) and a spill/leak-proof lid, which means you can quickly toss any concoction in your bag and go without worrying about blueberry stains seeping through.

    Promising review: "I opted to try an inexpensive drink mixer before I committed to a more expensive one. I wanted to see if I would even use one regularly. Now I'm hooked on throwing together some healthy items that I wouldn't have taken time to prepare previously. Freezing some fruit chunks and protein breakfast drink together in the morning now makes it easy with this mixer. No need to change to a higher-priced name brand (you know the one I speak of). It's the perfect size for me. Easy to pop on and mix. Easy cleanup. Its small design allows me to keep it out without taking up valuable counter space. Love it for my quick simple needs! On to the kale." —Kristine P.
    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    4. A rechargeable USB, dishwasher-safe PopBabies personal blender that comes with a small ice cube tray that's easier for chopping up the cold stuff and a funnel so you won't spill any of that valuable protein powder or baby formula.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Size: 14oz.

    Promising review: "As a very busy college student, I find it's hard to eat healthily. Between my limited dining hall options and my busy schedule, I needed a way to both eat my veggies and get to class on time. ENTER: this amazing blender bottle. Best purchase my limited paycheck was ever used on. Fill 'er up with wilted salad bar spinach, crappy orange juice, a grainy apple, and some ice and BOOM a shake is born. No need to head back to my dorm to plug it into a wall-socket base like most blenders — oh, no. In front of my amazed friends, I am now the wizard of smoothies. They all want one now! 10/10 recommend. Everything came looking just like the pictures and arrived WAY ahead of time. Cute 'lil ice cube tray is a major bonus." —Adrianna Simmons

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in three colors).

    5. An "intelligent" Nutri Ninja personal blender with two preset programs for remembering exactly how you like your favorite drinks pulsed, pureed, mixed, and even timed.

    Amazon

    Size: 24 oz.

    Promising review: "Blends better than I imagined. Very easy to use. Cleanup is simple and fast. The recipe book that comes with it is a great starting point. I have consumed more veggies and fruits (and protein powder) in the last week than I probably did in the entire month before thanks to this easy to use the device. Yes, it is loud, but I press the blend button and leave the room, so it is not a big deal. My only criticism is that the lids seem to be difficult to line up and get on. I'm still rating it 5 stars however because the cleanup process is so easy it makes up for the lid and the noise." —Jason L.

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    6. A dishwasher-safe, easy-to-clean NutriBullet nutrient extractor, because calling it a blender simply wouldn't honor the sacrifices all the fruits, veggies, and nuts, make to bring you your morning smoothie.

    Amazon

    Size: 24 oz.

    Editor's Note: I've had the same NutriBullet for nearly six years and it still works just as well as it did the day I got it despite me always filling it way up past the line on the cup.

    Promising review: "I love this thing! I have never been a smoothie drinker because I prefer to eat my calories. I have been having so much fun making smoothies now, though! I simply put in the liquid, toss in some veggies and/or fruit, some ice cubes and in less than a minute I have a yummy little drink. I like to add a handful of baby carrots to any fruit smoothie and this little machine has no problem whipping those up. I also rinse the blades off right after I’m done so I haven’t experienced any issues with it being hard to clean. I throw everything into the dishwasher when done and it cleans up great. I really love it and didn’t know how much I needed this until I got it! I would suggest getting an extra set of cups also! Very handy." —Curly Girl

    Get it from Amazon for $49.88.

    7. An eight-blade Instant Ace Nova blender with 10 customizable speeds for straight crush'in it (ice that is) as well as whipping up soups, dips, nut-milks, and more.

    Size: 56 oz.

    Promising review: "The moment I started unpacking this blender I already had a good feeling about it. It was heavy and sturdy. I really liked how heavy was the glass container. It was easy to follow the instructions for the setup. Loved the clean program, makes it so much easier to maintain. Has a lot of functions, I didn't realize I even can make a soup. I make smoothies almost every day and used a bunch of different blenders from other manufacturers, this one is really great especially for its price. So far, this blender worked smoothly and it looks really nice too!" —Roman

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99+.

    8. A self-cleaning Vitamix Explorian E310 blender just like the pros (well, the folks at the juice bar at least) use, because it will blend through anything including dips, spreads, sauces, batter, dough, and will even heat up soups!

    Size: 48 oz.

    Promising review: "I go through blenders and food processors like they are going out of style. Since going vegan/plant-based eating, I find that I have to make a lot of things versus buying premade items at the store like oil-free/dairy-free salad dressings, smoothies, sauces, etc. I found this to be a great mixer/food processor. I was a little skeptical about it's blending power after seeing the small blades at the bottom. I was using a Ninja before this purchase. I was pleasantly surprised by how well it blended and smooth things turned out. I have definitely gotten my money's worth with this purchase. Great size for making things for one to two people." —Pakcolumbus

    Get it from Amazon for $330+ (available in three colors).

    9. A Breville "Fresh & Furious" blender for living your life 1.4 liters of smoothie at a time. The lid features a pull design that stays sealed tight when blending and pours just as easily whether you've made pesto, a puree, or a piña colada.

    Size: 48 oz.

    Promising review: "I've never seen, much less used, such a perfect blender. The design is exceptional. And beautiful. And totally easy to use. I got this for one purpose: to make green smoothies that are packed with greens and other good stuff. Not only does it make a better smoother than a friend's $400 machine (really), it also cleans up more easily. And storage is simple, as the footprint is very modest. I cannot overstate how pleased I am with this purchase. Simply an extraordinary machine." —Tom Cloyd, MS MA

    Get it from Amazon for $199.95.

    10. A four-blade, 16-Speed Oster blender that'll most likely have you singing Daft Punk when making smoothies: crush it, grate it, blend it, shred it, grind it, mash it, stir it, chop it, puree it, mix it, whip it, pulse it, frappe it.

    Size: 40 oz.

    Promising review: "This blender has been great! It has chopped up ice for smoothie blending and has been great for all other blending needs. I have enjoyed the ease of use and the different levels of speed and pulsing. Blades have kept sharp and I haven't had any overheating issues. It is an affordable blender and gets the job done." —Shopgirl

    Get it from Amazon for $56.54.

    11. An ergonomically-designed, stainless steel Mueller Austria Ultra-Stick 500 immersion hand blender with whisk and milk frother attachments for a more "hands-on" mixing experience to let those smoothie ingredients know who's the boss. (It's you, you're the boss).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this to replace a competitor brand that I’d had for years. I was impressed with the versatility of the attachments, great speed variety, and weight. I whipped up creamy mashed potatoes in less than 30 seconds. And then the blade detached so easily and was easy to submerge clean without worry. The competitor brand I had didn’t have that feature and I was always afraid of ruining the motor. No worries with this nifty gadget. It also saves plenty of time from using much larger appliances for small jobs like frothing milk or cream or blending a smoothie. I’d definitely recommend it!" —T Warren

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    The answer to this question is always a resounding "yes!"
