  •     Waring BB 180 NuBlend works with cold items effectively. The power of the motor is slightly less at 555W but then so is the price. It costs only $93.99 and it has four changeable speeds.
  •      Vita-Mix 1002Vita-Prep has a capacity of 64oz. This blending station has a powerful 1500W motor. Yes, the cost is $542.99, much more than what one would pay for the average juicer.

Summer Specials for staying Fresh

Beating the heat is sometimes refreshingly tasty. Some great juice making recipes are here for you.

     a. Tangy Orange surprise
     b. Watermelon Delight
     c. Pineapple Orange Tango
     d. Lemon Freshener 

  •      Tangy Orange Surprise: Peel 2 oranges and dice it. Put in blender with 2-3 spoons of sugar (optional) and some mint leaves. Add a cup of water and blend. Adding pulpy mango improves the flavor.
  •     Watermelon Delight: Put chunks of watermelon along with grapes and ripe bananas into blender. Add 1 cup of water for every 250g of fruit, though one can have it, without any water. Sugar is optional, and so is the mint leaves.
  •      Pineapple Orange Tango: Slice pineapple and add diced oranges. Squeeze in half a lemon and add 1 or 2 spoons of honey. Blend it all together and serve.
  •       Lemon Freshener: This is the simplest to make and one of the best. Squeeze the juice of 2 lemons and blend with water. Add crushed ice and serve.

The choice of the best blender for fruit smoothies will depend on price and the capacity. Choosing a brand, which has recognition in the market is useful when you want to replace a worn out part or when you are not sure of what to buy. However, these are pricier and one will be spending money unnecessarily for the brand name when one can get a cheaper version on the market.
