Budget Or Bust? Nutrition Blenders Put To The Test.

Budget Or Bust_ Nutrition Blenders Put The The Test.Please note. This blogpost was originally published on 18 February 2016.

I’ve taken the most popular nutrition blender in the market, and tested it beside 2 other budget versions. How does the new Aldi Nutrient Blender compare to the Nutri-Bullet or a classic smoothie maker, and is it worth spending the extra money on the more expensive nutrition blenders?

Yesterday I tested 3 nutrition blenders in my kitchen. What’s the difference between a nutrition blender and a juicer? It’s simple, with a juicer you’re left with juice in a glass, and the pulp in a reservoir. Most people don’t use the pulp at all and they’re missing out on important fibre and antioxidants if they only consume the juice. With a nutrition blender, you blitz everything together so you’re getting the full nutritional value of what you put into the cup. This is why the nutrition blenders are so popular.

If you know anything about me at this stage it’s that I love testing! On the kitchen counter:

  • Kenwood 2GoSport 300W
  • Nutri-Bullet Graphite 600W
  • Aldi Nutrient Blender 700W
  • Stopwatch (for precisely timing the blend conditions)
  • Sieve (to check for the “bits” in the smoothie and see how well the ingredients were blended)
  • Classic Smoothie Ingredients (frozen banana, coconut water, yoghurt, frozen raspberries, spinach, and avocado)
  • Roasted Peanuts & Coconut Oil

As you can see, there is a marked difference in power between the blenders so I was expecting there to be a difference in the amount of time it took to blitz ingredients, and how smooth the end result was. Read More
