Whether you are a fitness buff or person that enjoys a good frozen drink, you cannot go wrong with a high speed blender for smoothies. These blenders have hundreds of uses and there are whole cookbooks written for food preparation with these appliances. I have even seen some blenders that make a hot bowl of soup right from the appliance.

The reason I bought my high speed blender was to make it easy to eat more vegetables. It is easy to puree two cups of veggies into an 8 ounce shake. It is something no kitchen should be without. These five choices will make you life easier and possibly healthier.
