High Powered Blenders

 

The primary health advantage to “juicing” with a blender is that this method retains all of the fruits and vegetable’s fiber content rather than sifting it out into pulp. This is neither good nor bad, but it is important to note for those who are choosing to juice for different reasons. Those that want the additional nutritional punch in their juice would probably benefit from a blender.

    We have the Ninja Mega Kitchen System and love it! The single serve blender cups are a life saver. There is serious truth that it is quite loud. I do wish it had a juicing capability, though.

  • Marian

    The breville and vitamix were what I made my investments in and I have no regrets. Vitamix is more user friendly on my opinion and the breville is the best blender juicer for the price.

  • I’m a HUGE fan of juicing but have never seen a breakdown like this! We have a Breville but have always been intrigued by the vitamix. Thanks for the thorough review!

    I LOVE that you’ve broken it down like this and included budget-friendly options instead of just Vitamix (as nice as it would be to afford that!)

  • Great breakdown and you are right the Ninja is pretty loud but we love it. Of course I wanted a Vitamix but I knew I wouldn’t use it enough to justify the cost. The Ninja with the food processor is awesome. I can do my pie crusts in a few minutes.

  • KokosSecrets

    my mom has the ninja and it works so good!

  • Dina Deleasa-Gonsar

    Hmm the vitamix or the ninja, that is the question! Great breakdown! #bloggingboost

  • This is really helpful I´m asking for one for my birthday 🙂

    I have a Ninja. It works GREAT but it is very loud.
