Blenders make a fantastic addition to any kitchen especially in a household that is health conscious and focused on their nutrition and overall well-being. Not all blenders are created equal though, and so it’s important to do your research and make sure you invest in one that is fit for purpose.
If you are looking to pulverize frozen fruits which, let’s face it, can be a really convenient alternative to always buying fresh, then you will need power and blades that are strong enough to deal with this job.
There’s also nothing more refreshing than a slushy in the summer months or maybe even a frozen margarita to accompany that friends and family barbeque. That being the case, you need a blender that can also tackle ice. So let’s have a look at the best blender for ice.
The Oster is an excellent choice if you don’t want to go to the trouble and inconvenience of getting out your large blender, especially if you are just whipping up something for yourself for that post-workout cool down.
It doesn’t take up much countertop space so for single serving, it really is a breeze. It is also incredibly easy to use with its one-touch blending action. Great for preparing smoothies and protein shakes that you can enjoy on the go or take with you to the office.
While it may not have the most powerful motor, it is more than capable of pulverizing frozen fruit and smaller ice pieces to create a cold and refreshing drink. Because the whole unit is self-contained within a convenient and easy to clean sports water bottle, there’s minimal mess to clear up and next-to-no preparation time involved. It’s also undeniably budget friendly too. The perfectly portable little personal protein smoothie maker.
If you are interested in your health and well-being, and love to live an active and healthy lifestyle, then the Ninja Fit personal blender will be perfect to support your busy schedule and nutritional goals.

The machine also features a handy pulse setting so that it can crush and blend ice for a refreshing frozen drink. It’s super convenient and easy to use as well as to clean up afterward, so you will get plenty of use out of this blender.

The Bestek is somewhat of a beast of a blender. There’s not a lot that this one can’t tackle from homemade smoothies, soups and ice-blended refreshing drinks, to creating your own smooth peanut butter paste. The only thing you need to bring is plenty of imagination and lots of fresh, inventive ingredients.
With its 1500-watt commercial grade motor, it is mighty and powerful, and ruggedly constructed to make short work of even the toughest blending jobs. For anyone with an active and healthy lifestyle, this makes the perfect kitchen appliance. What provides the blender with even more professional power are 6 custom stainless steel blades.
The Bestek has six pre-programmed settings as well as a useful pulse function, so all you need to do is load up your ingredients, select the appropriate setting and watch as the blender perfectly prepares your smoothies, shakes, and sauces.
The pulse function is ideal for crushing ice from frozen for the kids’ drinks or perhaps a cocktail or two for you! It has a large-capacity 64-oz. pitcher so you could end up making margaritas for the neighborhood!
All the parts are guaranteed BPA free, easy to clean and dishwasher safe, and it also comes with an 18-month warranty, so there really is nothing to lose. For professional results and nutritious shakes, sauces and soups all the family will enjoy, consider the Bestek Professional Blender.
We’ve showcased three profoundly different machines, two that are personal blenders and one that is a large, commercial-style blender. Depending upon the frequency with which you intend to use your blender and also what you plan preparing in it, they all have their merits and of course, their relative budgets too. At the bottom end, we have the very inexpensive Oster which will blend frozen fruits and is excellent for on the go, mixed drinks.
Mid-range is the Ninja Fit which has a more powerful motor and can also crush ice. While again it is in the smaller and more convenient personal blender category, it does come with two separate ninja cups each with a sealable lid.
Finally, the mother of all blenders with a powerful 1500-watt motor is the Bestek. There’s nothing that this blender can’t do, but it will, of course, take up more space on your countertop and has a higher price tag.
It really comes down to how serious you are about preparing delicious and nutritious drinks, sauces and soups for all the family. We think a home really would benefit from having both – a large blender that all the family can enjoy and a personal one for on-the-go nutrition hit.
