[quote="lobsteriffic"] It was horrible at making green smoothies as well, it would leave the greens kind of chunky and gross.
I still haven't bought a Vitamix...
But I've found a way how to make creamy green smoothies in my 20 pounds blender.
Blend spinach, kale or any other leafy greens with some water for about 5 minutes, THEN add the fruit.
I used to throw in everything at the same time but this doesn't work with a cheap blender, as the fruit slows down the speed of the blades and the greens won't get liquidised.
Celery, broccoli and other chunky vegetables should be chopped in small pieces before blending.
