Check out the Vitamix line of blenders. They’re powerful, versatile, and developed with raw foods in mind. Starting at around $449, Vitamix blenders are relatively pricey but valuable for making healthy soups, juices, and smoothies. They can also blend cereals and knead dough for homemade breads.
If a high-end blender isn’t in your budget, you can still make healthy smoothies and delicious juices with less expensive blenders. Just be sure that you have enough liquid in your mixes and don’t pack it with too much ice.
