Hi everyone! Thank you for all your tips!

I finally bought a blender - horray!

I bought the Tribest Personal Blender, on a whim. I am absolutely in love with it. So far I've made some great smoothies, and actually just for fun I've made my own face masks with it is well. Hehe!

Here's a youtube video that shows all the things you can do with the blender:

I'm about to grind some almonds to make nut milk. I'll let you know how it goes!

I apologize for bump an old topic from the dead, just have a few interesting observations from personal experience, maybe someone will need this information in the future.
I have a Kitchen Aid https://thehomedweller.com/best-blender-under-100/ which is also a high-end blender, and, yes -- also expensive. I requested for Christmas a few years ago, also because I wanted to do green smoothies.

My wife managed to find a refurbished one online somewhere, so it was somewhat more affordable.

I haven't been doing the smoothies regularly for a while, but I did 2-4x per week, for a lot of time. Works very well. I can actually put whole fruits in there -- whole apples, whole oranges with the peel, etc. Of course, for bananas, you take off the peel, and for peaches or whatever, you take out the pits. It blends up the greens really well too; I usually prefer either broccoli (which I also don't peel) or spinach, or kale is my favorite.

I use different combinations of fruits and vegetables, and I usually always add a whole lemon and some flax seed from my health food store. One blender full lasts me more than one meal, and I don't need to add anything else. Is a good breakfast or lunch when no one else is home..I like to watch YouTube videos of a similar subject when I'm looking for information about the right product. I hope this helps someone in the future. Good luck!

I must agree, it's a perfect breakfast. So I usually start my day with a smoothie - it does give you an enormous amount of energy with huge doses of all those nutrients that your body is probably craving the most.

As for combinations, my smoothies change with the season. Berries apples and root vegetables in the winter and add the greens in the spring on into fall. I am an avid gardener and it is where most of what I eat comes from. Some of my favorite greens to add to green smoothies: parsley, spinach, celery, kale and romaine. My favorite fruits for green smoothies are: pears, peaches, nectarines, bananas, mangoes and apples. Strawberries and raspberries taste superb in green smoothies, when combined with ripe bananas!

Congrats on purchase! I use a similar one, and I’m pretty happy with it. One tip – it’s a small unit, but you can buy a jar adapter (it's not that pricey) so that you can use regular mason jars when you are blending.

Can anyone recommend a blender for making green smoothies in? I have a Breville, but it doesn't blend the greens so well. Even with liquid, it starts to smell after a few pulses. It's a new blender too! The recipe books all say Vitamix, but it's so expensive.

Thanks if anyone has ideas!
