Blend your way to your five a day with the best NutriBullet
The popular NutriBullet range changed the game for the personal, single-serve counter-top blender market, with over 54 million units sold worldwide since launch. The brand is still going strong and is recommended for anyone looking for a blender that has the power to blitz any fruit or veg into healthy smoothies. Not resting on its laurels, NutriBullet has brought its latest model, the NutriBullet Balance, right up-to-date with Bluetooth connectivity, built-in scales and a companion app. We’re taking a look at this, and other models in the NutriBullet range, so you can decide which blender is best for you.
Best Overall: NutriBullet Balance
The NurtiBullet Balance brings smart technology to the blender market with a companion app that offers hundreds of step-by-step recipes for “NutriBlasts,” sends you real-time nutritional info for what you’re making, and helps you set and track your nutrition goals.
The blender itself has built-in scales that accurately weighs each ingredient as you add it, then the app can tell you the total calories, fat, carbs, fibre and protein in your concoction. The Balance has a powerful 1200 watt motor, comes with two large 930ml cups, two comfort lip rings, and two flips lids, all of which can go in the dishwasher.

Best Multitasking: NutriBullet Magic Bullet
The small Magic Bullet from NutriBullet is a little different than the other products we’ve featured as it’s not just a blender, but a mixer and food processor too. As well as blending, the Magic Bullet can be used to chop, grate, grind, whip and mix ingredients. You can use it in lock-on mode where it continually works to make smooth consistency foods, or in pulse mode for more control over texture.
The Magic Bullet comes in an 11-piece set which includes a tall cup, a short cup, a smoothie mug with a handle, a stay-fresh lid, a steamer lid, a flip-top lid, and two lip rings.
- Compact with a small footprint
- 11-piece set
- Dishwasher-safe cups and lids
- Only for smaller quantities

The multitasking NutriBullet Magic Bullet is a blender, mixer and food processor.
It’s not often we choose the top-of-the-line model as our overall best choice, preferring to suggest a more moderately priced product, but in the case of the NutriBullet Balance, it really is the best blender to go for if you can afford the price tag.
Perfect for anyone on a specialist diet, the built-in scales takes the guesswork out of creating smoothies. At the same time, the Bluetooth technology communicates with the companion app so that you can accurately track the nutritional data of what you’re making and eating.
On the hardware side of things, the NutriBullet Balance is not too shabby either, offering optimum nutrition extraction thanks to its high-powered 1200 watt motor base and 25,000RPM blending power.
