Don’t get caught up in the name of this blender, it can do a lot more than make thick, spoon-ready smoothie bowls. The personal blender comes with one base and multiple lids, one of which has built-in paddles to blend frozen fruits with less liquid, according to the company, which will result in thicker smoothies and bowls.
