The right blender for making the best spinach smoothie recipes
If you love making healthy spinach fruit smoothies, you should look into investing in a high speed blender. I love my Blendtec Classic Blender. It crushes ice and makes smoothies like a champ. After using it for four years, my WildSide+ jar started leaking at the bottom. Blendtec replaced it for FREE – love that!!
