    I use a Vitamix because that's what I have - for like 30 years now, and it's still going strong - often you do get what you pay for.

    Considered juicers a couple times, but I'd just as soon keep the pulp/fiber and not have another machine to store, not to mention the cleaning aspect

    I think you'd be surprised at what you can comfortably put into your stomach once it's blended. My routine is to freezer bag the fruit/veg portion of my breakfast smoothies and then just dump the frozen bag into the Vitamix to make a breakfast drink. Inside the bag is (roughly) 1.25 large banana, 2-3 whole collard leaves, 2-3 whole curly kale stalks, and 4-6 whole dino kale stalks. Added to that is 1.5 cups almond milk, about a tablespoon each of greek yogurt and almond or walnut butter, plus whatever else I feel like tossing in (ginger, chia seeds, etc).

    It all reduces down to maybe 1.5-2 solo cups worth of liquid that's easy to drink before I head out and on the way to work. Though I have learned that it's heavy enough of a meal that going for a long run shortly after eating it is not wise.
