The quality of your blender and its settings will affect your smoothie's texture / creaminess. I have used a variety of blenders in my past ranging from an inexpensive Hamilton Beach (29.99 and up) to a MEGA expensive Vitamix (399.99 and up) and I can honestly say that a blender is one product you should splurge on. I settled in between and purchased a Ninja Extract IQ (189.99 and up) and I absolutely love it. With that being said, you can see by the picture of the Tropikale smoothie that there are still granules of kale regardless of continued blending. The Vitamix blender leaves no remnants. Everything is perfectly blended together.
Keep these tips in mind when shopping for a blender! Make sure to check online reviews of products as well, they will tell you a lot!
Keep this recipe handy because it will reappear later this week when I share my recipe for stacked bean & cheese tostadas!
