Best Blenders: NutriBullet Review

Watch this NutriBullet review video and read the full post to decide if this blender is right for you!

NutriBullet Review

Behind every tasty green smoothie is a powerful blender that turns fruits, veggies, and other raw ingredients into creamy green goodness.

Not all blenders are created equal, though.

My quest is to find the best blenders on the market (and the worst!) so you can decide which blender is right for you.

Today, I’m doing a NutriBullet review with their Pro 900 Series blender. In the demo video (below), I use our infamous Beginner’s Luck green smoothie recipe to test the power and efficacy of this bullet blender.

Watch the video to see this blender in action, and scroll down further for more pros & cons, product specs, and comment at the bottom with your own personal review!

VIDEO: NutriBullet Review

Here’s the specs:

  • Type: Bullet blender (also known as an inverted blender)
  • Price: $89 (this is Amazon’s price, which is usually the best deal)
  • Motor: 900 watts
  • Jar size: 32 ounce BPA-free container
  • Warranty: 1 year limited

Is a NutriBullet better than a standard blender?

A NutriBullet blender is known as a “bullet blender” or an “inverted blender.” It works pretty much the same as any other standard blender. So, is it better than a standard blender? It depends on what your needs are. If you’re blending for a family, then this probably isn’t the best choice because of the 32 oz jar. Most standard blenders have 48 oz jars or larger. But if you’re looking for something that has a significant amount of power and is compact, then this blender is for you.

Which NutriBullet is best for smoothies?

NutriBullet has several types of blenders. You might be more familiar with the long-standing Magic Bullet blender (which I believe is their original model). There’s also the standard NutriBullet, NutriBullet Balance, NutriBullet RX, and of course… the NutriBullet Pro.

Our recommendation is the NutriBullet Pro. It has the best price point and is so simple to use! I’ve tried other NutriBullets that have power buttons, bluetooth settings, and more, but I prefer the simplicity and dependability of the pro version.

Who should get this blender?

Anyone can get this blender, though it works best for small families or people that are single. As far as smoothies go, it can make a maximum of two servings. It fits nicely in smaller kitchens that have limited storage, and also works nicely on-the-go (for all you van-lifers out there!).

    I’ve fallen out of the daily green smoothie habit because my full size blender is kind of a pain to clean because I live alone and make smoothies just for myself. I’d love to have a bullet blender so that I can get back into that healthy habit.

    Hey Sarah,

    Thank you for sharing that with us. The Nutribullet really is so easy to move around and clean up and that is one of the reasons we love it.

    Anything that makes it easier to make daily smoothies for my 2 and 5 year olds and myself is a winner in my book! We’d love it! Thanks for the wonderful smoothie recipes and inspiration, Jen! 🙂

    Great video! I would love this option for my teenage kids to encourage them to drink green smoothies. We have a Vitamix, but it isn’t always necessary to make a big batch of smoothies. This nutribullet seems easy to use and does the job.

    Thanks for the demo. This would be a great blender size to help teach my youngest daughter how to make green smoothies a part of her daily routine. We are hoping that adding more nutrients into her diet will help strengthen her immune system.

    Yes!! You don’t have to worry if it will fit under your cabinets which is so great!!

    I would love one of these as we are on the go so often in our camper. I really miss my daily smoothies when we camp. My Vitamix is just too big and heavy to bring along. I would love to keep my daily smoothie habit going when we travel.

    Thank you for sharing Nancy!! This would really be the best blender to bring on camping trips 🙂

    Loved your video. I myself have had, and still have, a nutribullet. Also have a veggie bullet and a nutribullet Rx. Love them all!! But, we use them DAILY and keep burning the motors out! I have contacted the company because my fav feature is on the Rx, hot soup maker!! Have had no luck with a rsponse and that was weeks ago. Hope I hear something soon. Good luck to everyone and whomever wins you’ll love your nutribullet!!!

    Great review! I would love one for the smaller footprint and ease to take on vacations. Not to mention, minimal cleanup without having to compromise on quality!

    I love how compact this blender is. I would love to take it with when I am staying in a hotel for vacations, weekend “away” tournaments for my kids sports, or an overnight stay at “grandmas” or a friends!

    Freeze leftover smoothie in an ice tray and then store in a baggie. When you are in a hurry you can plop them in your bullet for a quick blend and go!

    Yes that is exactly right, Theresa! 🙂

    I am so all about Simple Green Smoothies, and also some complex green smoothies too! I just love smoothies, and am ok with a little bit of texture in them. I have a big blender but would love, Love, LOVE a little personal blender for day to day blending. In fact, this Sunday, I am doing a little neighborhood nutrition demo as part of the bike and walking club that I belong to, and we are having a bit of a Healthy Green Smoothie Jamboree with samples for all participants, as we educate about our health “off the bike”. So, truly would love to have one of these! Plus it would be portable and could go with me to Tucson for school. YAY! Thank you for all of your delish recipes and for the program that got me started! You rawk! 🙂
