PROS: Super easy to clean, quick, and portable.
CONS: More time consuming than buying a smoothie
TAKEAWAY: It’s never a bad idea to eat healthy. These let you do just that with ease.
Eating healthy is vital regardless of how busy you are. If you don’t work in a few low-calorie, high protein, health boosting meals a few times a week, you’re doing yourself a terrible disservice.
Smoothies and protein shakes are a great way to do just that. But rather than spend a lot of money on the ever-popular NutriBullet (which can run you $50 and above), here are four more affordable options to keep your berries blended and your body – and wallet – happy.
1. Doctor Hetzner 300-Watt Single Serve Blender
I don’t know who Doctor Hetzner is. But, he makes a mean smoothie machine. You get up to 27,000 RPM of pure blending power, whipping around high-quality stainless steel serrated and flat blades, crushing ice and slicing fruits to give you silky smooth juice. And, it works with a take-it-with-you dishwasher safe sports bottle.
2. Vremi Personal Blender For Shakes and Smoothies
This single serve electric blender gives you a sleek, space-saving design with all the power you need to whip up refreshing and healthy drinks. It’s easy to operate and strong enough to cut through hard ingredients like seeds and nuts. The best part: detach the bottle from the base and take it with you for a fresh juice or smoothie on the go.
3. BLACK+DECKER FusionBlade Personal Blender
It makes sense that a company known for making drills with heavy torque would design a powerful personal blender. Here, Black+Decker give you Fusionblade technology designed to quickly crush ice and evenly blend smoothies and soups. It comes with two blending jars with twist-on travel lids to prevent spilling during transport.
4. Supkitdin Personal Portable Blender
The Supkitdin Personal Portable Blender is lightweight and super convenient. It runs on lithium batteries so you can blend at the office, in the woods, at the beach, even by the pool. The container is BPA-free and made of baby food grade material. Makes sense considering that’s just one of the many yummy treats you can blend with it. And with its single-serve size, there’s always enough for you without any wasted food.
