Can you recommend an affordable blender to make smoothies?

Everyone with IBD should have a high-quality blender. Blending makes it possible for people with active Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis to enjoy wholesome foods, like fruits and vegetables. Most blended or pureed foods are OK on a low-fiber diet.

 

We love the Vitamix, but it’s not an affordable option for everyone. Plus, it’s loud.

 

America’s Test Kitchen tested several mid-priced blenders to see how they make smoothies and crush ice, among other functions. The winner was Breville’s Fresh & Furious. Smoothies are very smooth, and there’s even a dedicated “green smoothie” button that “completely blends fibrous ingredients into a silky smooth drink.” Perfect for someone with an inflamed gut! Plus, it’s reasonably quiet and compact.

 

As of this writing, it sells for $199 on amazon.com.
