We love, love, LOVE our Vitamix. It is hands down the best blender for getting every chunk pummeled down to “corner smoothie store” quality and consistency. It also can make soups and ice creams/sorbets and so much more. They are a little more expensive, but they are worth it! There are plenty of options, so look at what each has to offer and pick the one that works for you.
