According to users, the best blenders for home-made protein shakes are the single-serve models, which come equipped with plastic containers that double as travel cups. These blenders have low-wattage motors (350w or less) and are very affordable (under $75).
The blenders rated highest for protein shakes also receive great ratings for ease of use. While they are often praised for their ability to blend fruit, they are considered unsuitable for both juicing and food prep.
