Summertime is all about relaxing on the beach and enjoying as much time outside as you can. After all, the warm weather only lasts for a few months, and you want to take advantage of all the road trips, pool days, picnics and other outings while you can. It's always important to stay hydrated when you're spending all day enjoying the summer sun — but sometimes you want to sip on something other than water, such as a refreshing smoothie or cocktail. Thankfully, portable blenders are nifty devices that can help you get your summer smoothie fix while you're relaxing at the beach.

Wait: A blender you can take wherever you go? At first, a travel blender seemed too good to be true to us too, but these convenient personal blender appliances exist and there are a number of blenders to choose from. Now your outdoor concert, picnic, family BBQ, backyard movie night or sunny beach day will be complete with frosty smoothie flavors, fresh fruit juice or even a blended cocktail. Just pack ice cubes and fresh fruit or frozen fruit in a cooler to create smoothies on the go by blending everything together and pouring your favorite drink into the cup of your choice.

Some of the best compact blender options might put your traditional blender to shame. From stainless steel portable blenders to mini travel blenders, keep scrolling to check out our favorite top-rated portable blenders and start enjoying your smoothies and cocktails on the go. And don't forget to check out our guide to Summer Break 2022, so you can complete the rest of your summer vacation packing list.
