Smoothies have now become part of our health-conscious lifestyle. A few pieces of fresh or frozen fruit, a cup of water, some ice and serve yogurt, and you have a drink that is not only healthy but also delicious. Athletes usually add protein powder to mix their smoothies to make it more nutritious.
Those who want to take their fitness level up a notch, including half a head of lettuce and some carrots to make a green smoothie that they can take for breakfast or as a luncheon in the afternoon. The question of where to make healthy drinks has dominated the discussion boards on the subject.
Some opine that the smoothie maker is where smoothies should be concocted. After all, they are made for the purpose. Others, meanwhile, reports that powerful blender is a better alternative that works as the best smoothie maker. We are more inclined to agree with the fans of the smoothie maker.
Here are reasons why you should prepare your smoothies in a smoothie maker and not just in any other mixer:
1. A smoothie maker is made for smoothies. Its higher power capacity makes it better than most in grinding fruit and pulverizing it to just the right consistency. Due to the narrow shape of the mixing glass, ice goes to the blades so they're ground better and more finely, something that most regular blenders cannot do perfectly.
2. What comes out of smoothie makers are liquid, easy-on-the throat drinks with no solid particles that are a common feature of smoothies done in blenders. This is because smoothie makers are infinitely more powerful than blenders.
