Commercial Smoothie Blenders

You don’t need a wide choice when it comes to commercial smoothie blenders as Blendtec blenders are the best on the market.

The Blendtec Connoisseur 825 smoothie blender with a sound enclosure, in particular, is in a league of its own.

Incorporated into the Blendtec design:

  • Heavy duty single bar blade
  • Stepped motor speeds which returns more product back to the blade for a smoother texture
  • A sound enclosure to keep noise to a minimum
  • Pre-set programmes switch the blender off automatically, freeing the operator to see to other things and return when the blender has finished its cycle

A good commercial smoothie blender is central to most catering operations and the Blendtec Connoisseur 825 will consistently make 0 – 250+ smoothies/ day for years without any problem.

Blender Tip

When blending fruits in a blender use soft fruit e.g. strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, bananas etc.

Don’t use hard fibrous fruit and vegetables such as apples, carrots, beetroot , celery etc. Put these through a juicer.

Blending frozen (Individually Quick Frozen) soft fruits + ambient cloudy apple juice will produce excellent results.

Domestic vs Commercial Tip

Domestic juicers & blenders are designed to be used for only 20-30 minutes per day.

Often manufacturers fail to state this in the instructions but this is the reason why they burn-out so quickly in the café environment.

A good commercial juicer or blender will not only last longer but it will also produce a better juice or smoothie.

Things to make on the Blendtec Blender & Cruz ingredients …………

Smoothies * Milkshakes * Iced Coffees * Crushed Ice

Cruz smoothies make the best tasting smoothies due to our excellent recipes and high quality ingredients.

Cruz smoothies are 140g packs of 100% whole frozen fruit, mixed to recipe and ready to use to make a 12 fl oz smoothie.

Cruz smoothies are quick & easy to make : pour the fruit into the blender jar with 200ml of cloudy apple juice & whizz for 40 seconds. Delicious!

We pack 50 x smoothies per box (one flavour per box) and deliver throughout the UK every week.

Info Tip

A blender can never make a juice.

Some domestic blender manufacturers say you can but it’s not true.

Ingredient Info

Cruz fruit is picked at the height of the season when ripe and nutritionally at its best.
It is then frozen instantly to seal in the goodness of the fruit.
This method achieves a better tasting smoothie than fruit from the local wholesale/supermarket which is often sold underripe.

Tropical fruits are a vital ingredient for smoothies yet these fruits are generally picked early and sold ‘hard’ & immature so they last longer.
However tropical fruits need to mature on the tree to achieve full nutritional potential.
This is why fruits picked, prepared and IQF frozen (individually quick frozen) on the same day in the country of origin are superior.


A Cruz smoothie is made from ripe ‘nutritionally rich’ fruit which is blended from frozen, giving an ideal serving temperature.

Cruz Milkshakes

We have 6 x amazing milkshake flavours that are made from real fruit so they make the perfect milkshake.

They are not like the sugary syrups of the past but are made from high quality ingredients.

Strawberry  *  Chocolate  *  Coconut  *  Berrylicious  *  Peach  *  Passion

All flavours are packed in 1 x litre bottles (highly concentrated purees that make approx. 34 x milkshakes).

Dark chocolate packed in a 1kg x tin – less sugar & more chocolate (One tin makes approx. 75 x chocolate milkshakes).

Cleaning Tip

Never clean blender jars or juicer parts in a dishwasher.

It’s too hot and too harsh an environment and the parts will wear quickly.

Just wash by hand in soapy water and rinse.
