View Full Version : Is there a better type of blender?
12-29-2011, 08:24 AM
So, I was going to start a raw diet awhile ago but never got to it. Going to make the move now. I was curious if there is a preferred blender for making green drinks/smoothies that I should buy. Also, I am going to order the book from this site, but would appreciate any advice you can give me to get started. The other question I have is do you get enough carbs from eating lots of greens? or do I need it from other sources? Just some info to get me started till I read the book. Thanks in advance.

I just got the Blendtec and I'm loving it! I was getting by for years with your usual cheap-o brand just fine too. Try any blender you can get your hands on and I'm sure you'll be fine. My favorite smoothie (these days) is Almond milk, seed butter, avocado, spinach, blueberries and a banana. So tasty..... Good luck!

I'll check it out thanks. Err 300-400 bucks, Curious is there something you would suggest for around 100-150, that I could start off with? I would Like to make sure I will be staying with this raw food diet before I make a big investment. Or is there something I should look for in a blender when I buy one?

Oster or Cuisinart are a good start

Yep, the Oster Fusion..
I had a Kitchen Aid blender. I think it was just over $100. I wanted to say that it will not make smooth smoothies - just in case you were looking at them.
