The humble smoothie offers a quick and easy way to increase your fruit and vegetable intake. To start your day with a nice, healthy smoothie, you’re going to need the best blender for smoothies in Australia.

While any of the best blenders are capable of making a smoothie, some blender models are particularly designed to help you get the most out of your morning blending.

From the jug size and shape to the models that come with an integrated drinking lid, choosing the best blender for your morning smoothie is going to help you stay on track of your breakfast smoothie goals.

So how do you choose the right model?

To help you find the best model for your needs, we’ve done extensive research to determine this list of the best blenders for smoothies in Australia, as recommended by top review sites.

We’ve also broken down all the features and functions you should be aware of when shopping for a smoothie blender. You can see that at the bottom of the page.

These are the best blenders for smoothies in Australia right now:

Vitamix E310 Explorian

Recommended by 40% of review sites

The 1.4-litre jug of the Vitamix E310 is large enough for those wanting to make smoothies for the whole family.

The blender features 10 manual speed settings, plus a dedicated pulse feature. This allows you to get the perfect consistency for your smoothie.

Once you’ve made your breakfast, just add some warm water and dish soap and turn it on for easy cleaning. This takes a lot of the hassle out of your morning routine.

Zwilling Enfinigy portable blender

Recommended by 30% of review sites

If you’re looking for a blender that makes single-serve smoothies to take on the road, the Enfinigy personal blender from German brand Zwilling fits the bill.

Not only is the jug the perfect size and shape for smoothies, it comes with an integrated travel lid so you can simply blend and take it with you to drink on your drive or commute.

Its motor is a little on the weaker side, so it’s probably not the best option for blending tough ingredients. But for simple smoothies, this is a great option.

Magic Bullet Blender

Recommended by 30% of review sites

Small yet powerful, the Magic Bullet kickstarted the personal blending craze.

With a 200W motor and stainless steel blades, the Magic Bullet is surprisingly small and easy to store.

Its 450 ml capacity is perfect for smoothies and dips, while the blender itself can also crush ice and frozen fruit.

It’s easy to clean as well, which is a huge timesaver.


How we chose the best blender for smoothies in Australia

Review sites – including this one – are subjective by nature. Everybody has a different opinion of what is best.

So to try and counter the fact that every best guide on the internet has a different opinion of what is best, we approached our list by combining the results of some of the top sites recommending blenders on the market today.

To determine this list, we followed the same journey most consumers would follow: we went to Google.

We searched for “Best blender for smoothies” and identified 10 of the top results. It’s important to note that Google results can change often. The full list of sites we referenced is outlined below:

Top ranking sites

We listed out all of the blenders listed on each site, tidying up any slight differences in spelling for consistency.

We then calculated the frequency in which each product was mentioned across those 10 guides. The more frequently a product is mentioned, the more agreement there is between experts reviewing these products that it is, indeed, one of the best products available.

We set a minimum of three mentions across all 10 guides to be eligible for inclusion in our guide to the best blender for smoothies in Australia.

Before we created this page we took some time to remove products that are either unavailable, or difficult to find in Australia.

We also leveraged our own experience with products to ensure that we wouldn’t be recommending any product that doesn’t deliver.


Guide to buying the best blender for smoothies in Australia

The Ninja smoothie maker is one of the best blender for smoothie in Australia models.

Whether you want to buy one of the products featured above or something different, these are the things to look for when choosing the best blender for smoothies in Australia.

Jug size

Decide whether you’re making smoothies for one or for multiple people. Many of the best blenders for smoothies are designed to come with a single serve jug you can take with you. If you want to make enough smoothie for multiple people, these blenders won’t be right for you.

Blending power

Typically speaking, some of the more personal blenders made for smoothies are lighter on power than a traditional benchtop blender.

That’s generally fine for simple fruit smoothies. But if you plan on making green smoothies with fibrous ingredients like kale, you may find that it’s not powerful enough to create a truly smooth drink.

Ease of cleaning

You ultimately want a blender that you can pop in the dishwasher every day.

If you have to pull the blender apart and wash it by hand, any convenience in having a dedicated smoothie blender will be quickly undone.

Price

Most of the best blenders for smoothies are designed specifically for making smoothies. With that in mind, you probably don’t want to spend a fortune on a single-purpose appliance.

For a high-quality model, expect to pay anywhere between $100 and $400.
