To be able to make a delicious smoothie you have to use a blender. A good blender is necessary for the easiest preparation possible. You should use a blender that convincing with a correspondingly high performance, robust material, and pleasant user-friendliness.
Vitamix blender is a popular blender to do this tasks, we notice that most of the smoothie lovers in the US choose Vitamix as their main blender. But since the price is not for everyone, is there any other blender as good as Vitamix that can be your alternative.
1. Ninja Ultima Kitchen
This blender from Ninja Kitchen is the real contender for the Vitamix. Ninja Kitchen seriously trying to steal Vitamix markets by claim if their blender as good as Vitamix but comes with a cheaper price.
On the box of Ninja Ultima blender there is a tag “Ninja vs VItamix at 1/3 the cost!”, this is a serious market war by Ninja Kitchen. Not only that, the blender battle of Ninja against Vitamix does not stop at that point. Ninja blender keeps improving their blender design and material to catch the quality of Vitamix blenders.
In 2017 Ninja Kitchen released new version of blender named Ninja Chef which is no longer use sharp blades like in Ninja Ultima Kitchen. This we believe to follow the VItamix that has been use dull blades since it created
Ninja kitchen also added pre-programmed settings feature that now become a standard for a high end blender this is again to follow VItamix as their main competitor. So by look at all this facts we cannot deny that this blender can be your alternative if you want a blender like Vitamix that will not make your pocket empty.
Note: In the end, customers have to choose between price and quality. We cannot argue if Ninja is cheaper than Vitamix, but Vitamix has a better quality product.

3. Philips HR7775
This is a blender that famous in Europe and Asia you see in my movies. I’ve been using this blender and food processor for about two years now and it still makes the tastiest green smoothies for me. The advantage of this blender is that it has a capacity of 2 liters.
The jar is made from plastic but pretty solid and can withstand a bump. In general, you can quickly stop almost all the ingredients of your smoothie at the same time in your blender. The powerful 1000 Watt engine can cope with it.
The blender is not the only part of the machine. The food processor is another part that becomes an extra feature from this blender. I use this to prepare Raw food products and to cut vegetables.
The last part is a juicer. These use in less often because I am usually too lazy to clean the machine up again. This is much more work than quickly rewinding the blender. The juicer works fine but does make a lot of noise. I use this juicer mainly to make fresh carrot juice to then process it again in my green smoothie.
