    Bought a Montell Williams blender machine to make healthy vegetable-fruit mix smoothies. Only had 4 recipies with vegetable-fruit smoothies. Tons of fruit smoothies, I was ready to send back my machine for refund since I was not satisfied!! Thanks to your site, Montell’s machine will have a second chance.

    Once I try your smoothies, I will give you feedback.

    I made this recipe, but had to varry it some since there wasn’t enough liquid to it. I added some spicy tomato sauce, a bit of water, and about 1/2 cup more salsa than the original recipe called for. Turned out yummy tho!

    I, too found this far too sludgy. So I added some tomato soup and 1/2 c. water. Left out the seeds, garlic and onions. Still too thick. So I heated it like soup, plopped in some organic yoghurt and it was delicious.

    I value your opinion, so I would like to ask you of what brand of blender do you recommend and why?

    • http://www.smoothieweb.com Blender Man

      @jack – I honestly use and recommend the Vitamix blender. You can order it here and save shipping costs:http://www.smoothieweb.com/smoothie-store/ – it is expensive but you will never need another blender and it blends anything. But if that is out of your price, then the Ninja Blender is a good choice – Ninja Blender NJ600.

    I love my Montel, but it leaks from the bottom when blending. Has anybody else had that experience?

  • Melissa

    I have the Montel blender and noticed that it only has few veggie smoothies as well. Good thing there’s internet! lol My blender works well! No leaking. LEC, I’d return it for a new one. Or just get a Vitamix :)

    You musnt ever wash the bottom mechanism of the blender base, to prevent rust… Also, they have a full warranty should anything malfunction. The blender comes with many recipes, and no offense but you are buying a blender, not a recipe– why would you return a blender bc of lack of recipes?? I make groung flours from oats, buckwheat, almonds, lentils, beans,; i make smoothies, shakes, soups, salsas, chutneys ,cookie bat,ter, yogurt,icecream, pudding basically anything..

    Just got my Vitamix (refurbished) two months ago for about $330. Best investment I have ever made. I use it 3-4 times a day – at least twice a day for veggie juice – drinking more veggies in one day than I used to eat in two months …

    I’m also a vitamix affiliate – and fully recommend them to anyone who cares about their health.

      what benefits tod you see now with veggie diet?

  • Shaana

    I use my kenwood smoothie to go… Only £20 at argos… It blends everything, frozen fruit, ice, veg, fruits etc but with frozen fruits you always need a water base so good to add milk or water or yoghurt or juice… Etc.
    I would also stay away from adding salt or sugar to smoothies in my personal opinion that way they are completely healthy for u.

      I had purchased the Nutribullet for my Christmas present to self. Only paid 75.00 for it and so far it works great!!! Found it very amusing that the pictures in the small recipe book had all veggies but not one veggie recipe in it. So I have been playing around with my own ideas. Definitely need to add lemon and/or juice,,it helps a lot. Love the looks of the recipes here and can’t wait to try them
