For those veggie or fruit smoothie lovers – the Vitamix Blender will be their best friend. This blender’s popularity stems from the fact that it will crush anything. You don’t have to worry about throwing ice or frozen bananas in this blender, it LOVES to crush ice into smooth delicious beverages. It’s also great for making soups and are super easy to clean.

The cheaper non-professional Vitamix blenders are great blenders, but cannot handle frozen bananas like the 750 Pro series can.

The usbtypewriter Etsy shop has got you covered in that front.
