Small blenders are becoming popular lately. They are efficient and more convenient to use than regular or full-sized blenders. The Nutri Ninja Pro is a personal blender or single serve blender that is quite powerful and is great for making smoothies. It is often compared and sometimes confused with the NutriBullet by Magic Bullet. These are two different manufacturers. If you want to get an idea of the performance of the other model, you can check our Magic Bullet NutriBullet 12-Piece High-Speed Blender Review. The Nutri Ninja Pro is a little less expensive. In this review, we will take a closer look at its features so you can make comparison before buying a personal blender.
Important Features and Specs
A single serve blender is great for quick blending especially for those who have very limited time in the morning and want to enjoy their freshly blended drinks on the go. The Nutri Ninja Pro comes with cups with sip and seal lids so you can take it out of the blender and bring it with you, ready to drink.
It features 900 watts of power on its motor base, strong enough to crush through ice, seeds, skins and stems for a smooth, even consistency. The pro extractor blades are designed to effortlessly blend whole fruits, vegetables and ice for cool, nutrient-rich juices. Put the ingredients in the clear cups with some water, and put the ice last, and then cover it with the lid that holds the blades. To start blending, put the cup upside-down on the base and push the top of the cup to get the blades running. It makes smoothies in less than thirty seconds. When tested, the smoothie came out very thick with a smooth and creamy texture.
It comes in a sturdy black and aluminum housing. It includes two clear plastic cups with 8oz and 24oz capacity. Both fit most car cup holders and includes a lid with drinking spout so you can bring your fresh drink anywhere. All parts are BPA free and dishwasher safe. You can just rinse the cup and blades with clean water and put them in your dishwasher. The base doesn’t get dirty because the ingredients are sealed with the blades’ lid. The blender measures 12.9 x 7.9 x 14.8 inches, Width, Depth, and Height (WDH) and weighs 8.2 pounds. The base comes with a rubber stopper so it doesn’t slip on your counter.
It uses pulse technology so you can control the texture and consistency of your drink or food. Push down in between short intervals until you achieve your desired smoothness.
The blender comes with a recipe with 30 different drinks and preparations, and a wellness guide. You can also use it to make dips, sauces, and dressings. However, customers noticed that it doesn’t blend seeds too well when using small berries like blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. If you prefer a really smooth consistency without seeds, you might have to blend it a little longer or choose a different model.
