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.

NutriBullet Review Specs

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!).

    Longtime RAWKSTAR, first-time commenter here!
    I started drinking green smoothies in 2015 and I haven't looked back since! Drinking a daily green smoothie has been the best thing I've done to maintain my health! I was a picky eater for the first 30 years of my life – meat, potatoes, other starches, and fruit – absolutely NO green veggies. One morning, my friend Rose made a green smoothie for us and it changed my life, so I found your website, signed up for all the reminders and emails, and have proudly been a pseudo-brand ambassador for Simple Green Smoothies for years (with glowing skin to prove it!)

    In my hears of being a dedicated RAWKSTAR, I've tried lots of blenders and nothing compares to this powerhouse. I've bought the Hamilton Beach single serve blender (extremely affordable and perfect for one person, but the container was too small for me), regular kitchen blenders with multiple speeds (also good but you end up having to do a lot of steps in order to get rid of the chunks), Vitamix blender (the G.O.A.T. except it's pricey!), and more. It's super easy to clean and store, plus with the powerful motor you can just blend it for 30-45 seconds and you have a creamy green smoothie! My friends have had this blender for the past few years and they love it. It makes just enough to share with someone or you can drink it all by yourself (I like to add avocado to my smoothie & drink it as a meal replacement)! Comes with 3-4 additional plastic containers…

    I hope this review helps others to find the right tools to be healthier! #PickMe #Rawkstar #SimpleGreenSmoothies

    I would love to win this blender for my son to take to college. I’m working on getting him to eat healthier and he is starting to enjoy smoothies in the morning for breakfast. This would be perfect for him to continue making the good stuff at school!

    I’ve had my current bullet for years! I’ve even worn off 2 out of the 3 tabs on the container making it a little more difficult to blend I would love to replace my current one with the Pro to keep our smoothies rolling!!

    I’m an unemployed mom of 5 on a budget who loves and needs smoothies to feel healthy and energized. Having a better quality blender would help cost of replacing the cheapy ones every few months.

    Hi Y’all! Current grad student here (“living” on a grad student budget). I recently shifted to a more plant based diet because a) meat is expensive and b) I’ve been putting off losing my freshman 15 for 5 extra years. Also, I take my nephew on the weekends and he has been so open minded about trying vegetarian recipes with me… which is huge since we come from a “if there’s no meat on the plate it’s not a meal” type of family. And he’s 13 and hormonal and finicky blah… but he opened up to me about wanting to get into better shape himself so he can feel more confident and pass the mile run test in gym class next year. It turns out he loves smoothies and asks to make one every time he comes over now. We usually try a new recipe for breakfast or brunch and have just added golden coconut milk to our bedtime routine (YUM). Anyways, I got my blender from Goodwill and it gets the job done but we never actually have smooth smoothies and the blender always has a hard time breaking down the ingredients no matter what order we try. I went to look at new blenders and the display models exposed just how dull my machine is. My nephew is a real trooper regardless and encourages ME that it’s the effort not the product that matters (LOL!!!!) and he’s a totally good sport about hacking up a chunk of kale nonchalantly when it goes down his drinking pipe. We’d definitely make good use of this blender as part of our accountabili-buddy weekends and having proper equipment would certainly increase the appeal of smoothies and their fullest most delicious potential. He’s going to stay with a family friend of ours for a bit over the summer to get out of the city and this would be small and compact enough for him to pack along and make single serve smoothies to keep up his progress during that week. Thanks for facilitating this give-away and for having so many free recipes available for folks! And thanks for your consideration.

    I always wanted a Nutri Bullet. I like the idea of making individual smoothies and easily take it on the go.

    My husband and I (early and mid 50’s) need to lose about 200 lbs between the two of us. Our vegan son graduates college in NY in May n stays for his job and our very healthy college graduate daughter is getting married in July so we official empty nesters won’t have either of them home for encouragement! BUT the ease and size of this blender would really help us on this weight loss journey! Especially since we’re figuring out how to eat healthy for two people (not sure what we did when we got married 27 yrs ago!) Also I’ve have Multiple Sclerosis and I read that a plant based diet is best, so including green smoothies into my diet could be super helpful with the disease but I need the right tools to do that!

    I’ve had the standard nutribullet for a few years now, its actually on its way out from all my smoothie blending lol. I would love to see how the pro works and it seems simple enough for me to make my smoothie in the morning and get out the door.

    I would love to have this so that my husband and I can get more into making and having smoothies at home, especially after my husband been diagnosed as having gastroparesis. This would really help us to have a healthier breakfast choose for the both of us. Thank you for the chance at winning this blender, it looks simple to use.
