I had been looking for a blender for a while. Up until now, I have used my Gen 1 Magic Bullet and the only accessory I have left is the small 6ish oz cup #strugglebus #momlife
So, needless to say, I needed a good blender for my protein shakes, healthy smoothies, and whatever else these new and improved machines can whip up these days. I mean let’s face it, when I was younger all we could do with a blender was make milkshakes.
What to consider when shopping for a blender
Blenders today give you way more options and you know how we love options but too many options can be confusing and expensive!
With so many amazing blenders on the market, it was hard to know which one to go with but I will say my decision ultimately came down to a few things.
I knew I wanted something that was simple and easy to clean, NO BRAINER.
I also knew I wanted a blender that was capable of making hot food.
I needed it to have multiple speeds and pulse functions so it can blend some stuff up!
Since all I had in the past was the small magic bullet, I knew I wanted a larger capacity blender with a pitcher as well but nothing big and bulky. Something lightweight and that isn’t an eyesore if I decide to leave it on the countertop.
That’s it! That was my blender wish list. I looked at a few but I personally didn’t think I would utilize all of the fanciness, buttons, and setting most of them had. That’s when I narrowed it down to NutriBullet 1200 Watt Blender.
Why A NutriBullet 1200 Watt Blender?
I never realized how expensive some blenders were until I started on this journey. Did you know Vitamix makes one that is $2028? Sure it was nice, but it was a little out of my price range. The average “inexpensive” blenders range from $50-$300 and keep going up from there. NutriBullet is 2021 best blender under $100 but the price wasn’t the deciding factor for me.
NutriBullet Blender has plenty of power. In fact, it has 1200 watts! That amount of power will crush ice, vegetables, fruit, and blend just about anything without leaving chunks that clog up your straw. I don’t know about you but for me, that’s the worst! I need to be able to push the button and know that it will do its job 100%. It has 5 speeds which are extract, low, high, medium, and pulse but that’s all you’re going to need anyways. It can even make hot soups.
Easy to clean
NutriBullet is so simple to use and so easy to clean. The best way to clean your blender is to fill the pitcher with warm water and dish soap and run your NutriBullet for 20-30 seconds. This will allow any loose ingredients to be removed so you can finish it off with a light scrub. That’s it! Easy breezy. You might not think the cleaning portion would be a deal-breaker but if making smoothies and utilizing your NutriBullet on a regular basis, you will want a blender that is simple to clean. This will become the reason you WIll or WILL NOT use it.
Full-Size Blender (64 oz Capacity)
This was a biggie for me. I never could get the mini blenders portion size right. I would always put my ingredients in and it never failed, every time I went to put the lid on, the blade would push out half of the stuff and make a huge mess. I don’t even put a lot in it just 8oz of almond milk, 2 scoops of collagen protein powder, hemp protein, or whatever your favorite protein is, and a few ice cubes. That’s so boring. I would pin so many healthy smoothie recipes on Pinterest and I wanted to make them all so bad! That’s why this 64 oz pitcher came in handy. I just needed something bigger so I can pack it full of fresh fruits and veggies and make myself a nutritious smoothie and still have extra to share with my family with no mess to clean up! WIN-WIN for everyone.
