Craving something cold? You need a quality blender. Pexels

There’s something that feels a little bit fancy when you pour a pitcher full of frozen beverages. Enjoying a frosty drink feels like a luxury splurge. But it doesn’t have to be a luxury. With the proper blender, creating blended concoctions in your home can be a cinch.

Ninja Professional Countertop Blender with 1100-Watt Base, 72 Oz Total Crushing Pitcher and (2) 16 Oz Cups for Frozen Drinks and Smoothies (BL660), Gray

Makes snow in seconds

If you’re not entertaining, there are two cups with included to-go lids, so you can take your favorite beverages on the go. Ninja

Even though this blender holds 72 ounces, that’s nine cups of tasty beverages for you and your guests. Healthy green shakes are an energizing way to start your day. We love that you have four speeds for smoothies, soups, and lots of snowy beverages. The six blades crush ice in just a few seconds. From the extra-large pitcher to the little cups, all the pieces are dishwasher safe.

Magic Bullet Blender, Small, Silver, 11 Piece Set

Versatile tool

From chopping veggies for soups to chopping kale for a smoothie, we love how easy it is to use this for all your mixing needs. Magic Bullet

There’s always one in each family who doesn’t like what everyone else is eating. This Bullet comes with 11 pieces, including three cups and three lids, so you can make everybody happy. This blender can do it all. Make mayonnaise and aioli with the touch of a button. Transform those tomatoes to gazpacho, salsa, or sauce. We love not needing to serve drinks on the rocks when you’ve got this bullet blender. Now you don’t have to be the Lone Ranger to have a silver bullet.

Vitamix A3500 Ascent Series Smart Blender, Professional-Grade, 64 oz. Low-Profile Container, Graphite

Easy-to-use touchscreen

It’s smart too, sensing the size of the blending container for optimal blending. Vitamix

We appreciate all the modern twists on this blender. The touchscreen is easy to clean and looks futuristic, with the pictures of the desired texture instead of the old-fashioned chop, blend, and puree. It’s pre-programmed so you won’t overmix. But we absolutely love the app. The Vitamix Perfect Blend App, for both Apple and Android, connects you with over 500 recipes and 17 programs, so this blender practically makes the beverages for you. No guessing. Anyone else getting thirsty?

Ninja Personal Blender for Shakes, Smoothies, Food Prep, and Frozen Blending with 700-Watt Base and (2) 16-Ounce Cups with Spout Lids (QB3001SS)

Powerful machine

Watch carrots, kale, and apples reduced to smoothies or sauce. Ninja

The powerful 700-watt motor smashes ice in a few seconds so frozen drinks are always a few minutes away. It’s frustrating to have to open the blender and release the frozen strawberry stuck under the strong metal blade. It’s also a bit scary. With this little Ninja in your kitchen arsenal, you’ll never need to deal with that again. We love how the strong blades and motor make short work of fruits and veggies, even if they are frozen. And all the parts are dishwasher safe.

Margaritaville Bali Frozen Concoction Maker with Self-Dispensing Lever and Auto Remix Channel, DM3500

Your bar’s best friend

It’s programmed to mix a whole 60-ounce pitcher or a 30-ounce portion. Margaritaville

This blender even has the lingo right… Daiquiris, Ritas, Coladas, and Smoothies. Those are all the settings on this party blender. No pouring required. The Margaritaville model even has a dispenser so your guests can serve themselves. We love how this leaves the hostess with one less duty. The brushed metal base and the sparkly stainless accents give this blender a festive look. Are the kids longing for shaved ice? This blender does that, too, so any day can be snow cone day.
