The Ninja Professional Blender with Nutri Ninja Cups (BL660) might be a good choice if you lead a busy life-style. No more wasting ingredients with a big pitcher of smoothies I can’t drink by myself. I love how easy it is to make a single serving and then be able to take it with me, thanks to the to-go lids that are provided.
A problem with most blenders is that they are not able to break down ice for frozen drinks. But the Ninja Professional Blender quickly turns ice into snow, giving me the smoothest slushies at home. This blender not only crushes ice easily, it blends nuts and sliced fruits and vegetables down to small, consistent pieces. And cleaning the blender is super easy since all of the parts, except the base, are dishwasher safe.
The Nutri Ninja Pro Blender features vitamin and nutrient extraction. This option could make this blender a good choice for you if you have been considering purchasing a juicer. The Nutri Ninja breaks down seeds, whole fruits and vegetables, ice, and nuts. I really liked the recipe book that came with it. The book breaks down all of the vitamins and nutrients in most common foods and even lists what works well together.
Most of the parts, except the base, are dishwasher safe and easy to clean. I love how quickly it chops up most items and it doesn’t take up much counter space.
If the noise associated with most blenders bothers you, this one could be a better option. The Jamba blender comes with a shield to reduce the noise, which makes it great for those early morning folks, like me.
The blade has four prongs, instead of the usual two, so it grinds up leafy vegetables and seeds much easier than standard blenders.
It pulses as it blends, so no more stopping, removing the lid and stirring the ingredients. When blending frozen ingredients, or thick milkshakes, the tamper makes it easy to get a smooth consistency without stopping and starting. And cleanup is easy as most of the parts are dishwasher safe.
The NutriBullet works well for making smoothies and frozen drinks. However, it only comes with two cups so if you need to make a larger amount, or something other than just drinks, this may not be the best blender for you. I do think it takes a little longer to blend fruits and vegetables than some blenders and ice can be tricky. I use frozen fruit when making smoothies, so that seems to cut down on blending time and produces a smoother drink.
If you are not careful about how much liquid you add it can leak into the base unit. If you like to make your drinks to go, the mug style cup that is included may be another selling point to consider.
The KitchenAid blender works to make all of your nutritional drinks along with performing the operations of a food processor. The design does not take up a lot of counter space and I love the smooth button surface, so easy to just wipe clean. One drawback is that if you do not add enough liquid, the blender does not crush ice to a nice consistency.
The large pitcher is attached to the blades, so this has good and bad points. Good point is that it is easier to clean, bad is that if the plastic ring around the blades crack, you need to replace the whole piece. If you are looking for a versatile blender, one that will mix more than just smoothies, this could be a good choice for you.
Most folks use their blenders for smoothies, frozen cocktails and nutritional drinks. When comparing my first pick with the other alternatives, you can quickly see why it is my first choice. Not only does it create the smoothest drinks, of any type, it is powerful enough to chop nuts into butter and process seeds and ice. The to-go lids on the cups seal better than the others listed, so no spills or leaks when traveling. While most blenders only have the one large pitcher, the Ninja Professional Blender gives you two sizes so you can make exactly the amount you need. And while it may be louder than the Jamba Quiet Shield Blender, it is easier to clean.
