The Best Blender For Creating Frozen Drinks

Concoct your favorite flavors of margaritas, or make fruit smoothies for the family with any one of these blenders.

Chop up some fruit, throw in some ice, and add a little bit of tequila, if that's what the occasion calls for. Or maybe it's a family event with kids, and you want to make refreshing fruit smoothies for everyone to enjoy. No matter the event, a blender is necessary in almost every social situation.

Ninja's blenders are powerful and effective with the 72-ounce countertop blender having a six-blade assembly. Check out Oster's blender, too: It has three pre-programmed settings for the most common blender recipes built in. Looking for something a little simpler? KitchenAid's round-jar setup has five different speeds and an ice and pulse mode, too.

Whatever your needs, any of these blenders would make a fine addition to your kitchen.
