Since we prefer all of Fiber’s digestive-tract clearing benefits, we want to make our juice the Whole Food Way (instead of using a fiber-wasting juice extractor) — so the specific kind of high-powered blender you use makes a huge difference in your juice’s overall quality!
One of Blender Babes’ most popular recipes is our whole food version of Dr. Oz’s Green Juice. Since it’s full of extremely fibrous greens and fruit that’s easy for people to find in stores (celery, apples, spinach) we like to use this recipe when testing blenders and their ability to make a WHOLE FOOD JUICE.

Blendtec vs Vitamix vs Ninja – Overall Smoothie Quality & Smear Test Results…
Blender Babe Val fired-up her Blendtec’s Soup Setting—the machine’s highest speed—for a full 90 seconds. And as was predicted, this incredibly powerful blender totally obliterated all of Dr. Oz’s Green Juice ingredients, which resulted in a Great Overall Taste and Smooth Texture in every last energizing drop! Val thought it had a bit more of a smoothie texture than an extracted juice texture, however not quite a standard green smoothie texture.
And with respect to the Smear Test, the Total Blender Classic’s complete lack of Green Smoothie Foam spoke for itself!
Blender Babe Paige set her Vitamix’s Manual Variable Speed to its highest 10/High Setting for 90 seconds—yielding a perfectly blended liquid with an Awesomely Sweet Taste and not even a hint of those stringy celery fibers (which are always problematic for ALL inferior blenders!)
& the Smear Test: total silky smoothness with ZERO Green Smoothie Foam!
The Ninja Professional produced a “chewy smoothie” that was full of texture, which is a drawback some could overlook due to its super low cost, but for those seeking quality, dependability and value, Ninja just doesn’t cut it. Tarashaun even had trouble removing and resetting the jar back in place, which on top of the poor smoothie quality, is another common complaint!
& the Smear Test: Yup—definitely too much Green Smoothie Foam!
