If you consider your blender on your short list of closest friends — or at least, your bff kitchen tool — same. Blenders are a must for both master chefs and rookies alike, and they're a great investment if you're a fan of smoothies, soups, dips, or just like a frozen drink now and then. However, many blenders are gigantic — they take up a ton of counter space, they're heavy, and especially if you're only making something for yourself, they can be a nuisance.
Personal blenders like the Ninja Nutri Pro solve that problem. The compact Nutri Pro — on sale at Amazon for $60, an unreal 50 percent off! — turns out a cup-size of whatever you're mixing up. Though small, it packs plenty of power, easily crushing ice and pulverizing fruits and veggies, all while extracting nutrients and vitamins. It's designed for on-the-go use: The cup (you'll get two sizes) even twists off and can be used as a to-go container. It's basically your favorite big-time blender, just shrunk down to individual size.
Unlike other personal blenders, the Nutri Pro doesn't skimp on power: In fact, it boasts over 900 watts of crushing power. It definitely worked wonders for Amazon shoppers; nearly 7,800 reviewers rated it a perfect five stars!
Writes one happy reviewer: "This thing is great. It’s basically a lightweight blender that’s easier and quicker to use and to clean. I feel much more motivated to make smoothies and shakes knowing that I can complete the whole process in minutes. In fact, I even started doing smoothie-prepped baggies because of it."
It's a great find for those with particular dietary needs too.
A shopper on the keto diet shared: "This thing is awesome. Takes chunky ice to smooth deliciousness in less than a minute. I went keto this last summer, so we have been doing a lot of shakes. This blender is a great size for four people, and it's very easy to use."
A third chimed in: "I honestly do not know why I did not get this sooner! Last year I got on a morning smoothie kick and have a normal Ninja which I love, but it was such a hassle cleaning out every morning for just one smoothie. This is fab! I make my smoothie and then rinse off the blade and pop the travel lid on and I am out the door to work. LOVE LOVE LOVE."
