      Tools for making Healthy Fruit Smoothies:

      I use a Blendtec to make my healthy smoothie recipes. I have the Blendtec Designer Series Blender and it makes it easy to prepare smoothies quickly. It gets used nearly every day. Looking for something more affordable? The Cuisinart SPB-600 SmartPower Deluxe Die Cast Blender is a solid choice, but won’t blend ice and frozen fruit quite as easily as a higher-powered blender. I store my smoothies in glass jars – the bonus is that I can drink out of them too!  Don’t forget the Glass straw!         Piña Colada Smoothie Recipe
