What’s the best blender for smoothies? After owning the Nutri Ninja for a few years, I recently purchased the Blendtec after seeing a demo at Costco — and I really love it.

I recorded the video below and conducted a side-by-side comparison to show you the key differences.

Best blender: Blendtec and Ninja put to the test! 

For this test, I used the same ingredients to make smoothies in the Ninja and Blendtec. The ingredients were one banana, one cup of frozen strawberries, one cup of almond milk and one tablespoon of almond butter.

As you can see in the video below, I preferred the Blendtec because the fruit smoothie was a little bit smoother!

The downside of the Blendtec is the price. It’s more expensive than the Ninja, although I recently spotted the Blendtec on sale through Amazon for $169  — a $120 savings.

On the other hand, I’ve seen the Nutri Ninja go on sale several times a year for around $69.

If you’ll put either blender to good use and not let it collect dust in a cabinet, I think you could make an argument that both of these kitchen appliances are a pretty good value.

I’m personally using my new Blendtec to eat more fruit in 2019, one of my New Year’s goals.
