Smoothies are a great way to get your fruits and veggies in on the go, especially if you find yourself running out of the door every morning. But before you can start picking out recipes, you need a blender that can do the job. Smoothie blenders should be powerful and have several long blades to ensure a smooth drink without chunks.

This blender is the perfect single-serve option. To use, you simply blend your beverage in the tumbler you plan to later drink out of. It comes with two of these sturdy tumblers, which hold 18 ounces. The blender may be slower than others on our list, coming out at only 250 watts, but it is also the smallest blender on our list and needs less power to run. It also comes with a recipe book to fuel your inspiration. It's here now.

What We Liked:

The Oster Pro 1200 is the most powerful on our list, coming out at a whopping 1200 watts. It may look like a more traditional blender, but this pick is the perfect compromise between a single-serve and a large blender. It comes with a 48-ounce glass jar that will make around two smoothies at once as well as a smoothie cup you can blend directly in for single-serve drinks. Say goodbye to chunks; it features a 50 percent larger blade system than Oster’s previous models, ensuring a smooth beverage. It even comes with a 10-year limited warranty. It's available here.

Most Portable

What We Liked:

This fun blender is great for those who are always on the go, whether it’s to the office or yoga class. Easily blend smoothies in its 14-ounce jar and drink directly out of it. This blender may take longer to get the job done because of its 175-watt motor, but don’t be fooled: it can still grind ice and tough vegetables. Note: Only has one blending option. Get it today.
