Blender vs. Smoothie

Does anyone know the difference between these two appliances? I make smoothie every morning for breakfast. I feel the blender isn't strong enough for everything I put in it. Does anyone own a Smoothie Mixer?

There is a smoothie appliance? I always believed that a smoothie was just a type of drink...

There certainly is, Haggis! My family nagged until I bought one - guess how many times it's been out of the cupboard since I purchased it?

Since I use my blender everyday for breakfast, I just wondered if there was difference in cosistancy of liquid? I throw so much fresh fruit in with yogurt and different powders that is almost comes out like pudding which is hard to drink. I felt this Smoothie appliance would make it easier to drink. I do throw everything in the smoothie like I do my soup. They often ask me if I have spoon? The idea is they don't want to sit down to eat; hence, they drink all the stuff. Ishbel, you never did use yours? do you use your blender? Guess you sit down to eat your breakfast? They want to get out of here as fast as they can.

I actually got one for xmas the other year. Didn't last very long. Its much harder to clean up and stuff. There's a built-in spigot. It was actually a lot easier to make smoothies in my old 2 speed blender.

I just got it and that's the reason for question. I better exchange it since I haven't used it and get blender hooked up. ?Thanks for the input. I just thought would be better but not if the clean up takes forever. Not worth it. Thanks again

Maybe all you need to do is throw in a little bit of fluids? Some fresh juice, on top of all the fruit. That will make it not so thick

My mom has a blender & smoothie maker & she uses her smoothie maker nearly every day. I haven't seen her blender out in years!!

Is the only difference between a blender and a smoothie maker just the spigot?


If so, wouldn't this be a smoothie maker?

I have a couple of these...

chocochef that looks like a good strong one. Where did you get that? Is it hard to clean? Looks like a good one.
