The Best Blender for Detox Drink Recipes

written by Guest Blogger December 15, 2009

Editor’s note: Planning to give your health nut a blender this year? Then you’ll love this guest post from Frank at BlenderBenefits.com.

Since all of the detox drink recipes on Live Lighter depend on maximizing the nutrients one can consume from each plant, it is important to use a blender able to retain as much nutrients as possible during the blending process. Better yet, if you use a blender that actually makes it easier for your body to assimilate the nutritious goodness found in fruits and vegetables, then you’re made in the shade.

Luckily, there are a couple of powerful blending options available to properly blend detox drink recipes and maximize their nutritional value.

You may have seen the very viral video series “Will it Blend?” starring the Blendtec blender. If you’ve seen any of them, you’ll know this blender is one of the most powerful kitchen appliances available (it turned an iPhone into iDust.) [Click here to read Frank’s Blendtec post on his Blender blog.]

Although intimidating, it does a tremendous job blending anything you want to add to your concoctions. Harder ingredients like flax seed, nuts and kale, are easily handled by a Blendtec blender and unlike cheaper blenders, blending ice is a breeze.  Recipes like the Ginger Root Boost, will come out smooth and consistent even though you are blending tougher/drier items like ginger root.

The Blendtec blender is renowned in raw foodist circles due to the beneficial health benefits it can provide. High powered blenders like this and the Vita-Mix Blender [read Frank’s article here] actually rupture plant cell walls, making it easier for to assimilate the plant’s natural nutrients.

The Blendtec blender is definitely more expensive than other blenders, but the added benefits are worth it. It is the best blender to own if you plan on blending regularly, as it has a very customer friendly 3 year warranty.

For these reasons, the Blendtec Blender is the perfect choice to blend Live Lighter’s detox drink recipes.

Until next time – stay healthy and keep blending!

Vita-mix is a bit too expensive for me now. Could you recommend another juicer’blender? Thanks!

Hey Kim,

Thanks for popping by Live Lighter. I personally use a blender so I can enjoy all the fiber still.

Can anyone else recommend an economically-sound juicer?

Ooops, sorry Kim, didn’t read your question well enough (esp. in relation to the post) – that’s what I get for multi-tasking. 🙂

I love my beehive Osterizer. It’s never failed me in the 5+ years I’ve had it.

It was less than $100 at Canadian Tire, on Amazon, it’s $65: http://www.amazon.com/Oster-4093-Classic-Beehive-Blender/dp/B00005QFKG

It’s WELL worth the investment!
