Looking for Blender/Smoothie Maker

Hi all. Due to my health and recent surgery, I'm looking at making Low Carb Smoothies. My Dr. is willing to go along with it as long as I actually use some vegetables. Right now, I'm all Gung Ho to start. However, I might get bored with this somewhere down the line.
So, I'm looking for a Blender/Smoothie Maker that does not cost a fortune. (Vitamix at $400+ is a little too much for me.) Breville's are around $150-$250. Not much better.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00XHXN54K...ing=UTF8&psc=1

This one I don't mind. Some of the reviews are even good. Anything under $100 I could get without too much pain in case I loose interest.


Any suggestions as to what will work without breaking down from crushed ice or not being able to blend/liquify Kale? Those seem to be the worst problems for any Blender.

Thanks for any help.

I have an oster. I wanted glass and metal for the pitcher and working parts. I found mine on clearance at walmart for $24, usually twice that. I'm not a fan of the accessories that come with blenders. I just wanted the blender. The model you picked out looks good.

I absolutely love my KitchenAid blender. I thought about moving up to a VitaMix, I just can't justify it. I haven't had a situation yet where my KitchenAid blender has failed me, in the ten -or-so years I've owned it.
