Professional/Semi professional quality blender for smoothies

desidude | May 27, 201603:00 PM     7

Hello friends,

I hope you are doing well. My fiancee has been using an Oster (from Costco) blender to make smoothies for breakfast.

She usually puts in some fruit, nuts and juice or water. As she makes a large quantity every morning, and uses some ingredients that are tough, e.g apples, aloe vera and others, she wants to buy a blender with a larger capacity and one that is a bit tougher.

I have read about the Vitamix and Blendtec blenders, but not sure which of those models are larger or sturdier?

Or is there another brand one can consider? For example, what do the smoothie retail outlets, like Jamba Juice use?

We are located in Houston, TX USA.

Thank you once again
desidude
