I like my smoothie to be really smooth and my Ninja isn't giving me that kind of smooth smoothie. I want to try some green smoothie recipes, but I need to make sure I have a blender that can liquefy such fibrous material and also blend ice smoothly. Anyone have any suggestions (other than the super expensive Vitamix or Blendtec models).
