The best affordable blender for smoothies

Getting into shape/pursuing a healthy lifestyle usually goes hand in hand with adopting a serious affliction for smoothies, which usually also goes hand in hand with forking over a large sum of money for a blender.

Rejoice, there is the Ninja Master Prep! Under $40, eligible for Amazon Prime shipping, what more could you possibly want?

The Ninja Master Prep comes with two sizes of containers – the smaller one is great for individual portions, which is super convenient.

It’s not the quietest blender in the world, but the blade is legit and at this price point you can’t expect to get the quietest one on the market. More importantly, it’s been up to the task for any recipe I’ve made, making quick work of ice, frozen fruit, leafy greens, and fresh fruit. I’ve had it for several years and it has yet to show any signs of wear.


What makes this blender unique is that it’s designed upside down from how most blenders are, but I actually love it because it’s much easier to clean and load up. You don’t have to pray you’ve screwed the lid on tight enough after loading all of your ingredients into the blender and flipping it over. The blade loads onto the top of the blender, which also comes with a spout for easy pouring.

This set up means you have a long plastic piece attached to the blade to grab, which is so much safer for accident prone people such as myself. You can easily wash the whole thing by hand or throw everything in the dishwasher.

There aren’t multiple blend settings, but I never knew how to use all of those on other blenders anyways. Keep it simple, right?

The motor doesn’t stay on automatically, but holding the power button down has never been an issue for me. Overall, this blender has been my ride or die and basically the only reason I eat fruits and vegetables regularly. It’s great for anyone ballin’ on a budget while trying to eat healthy.
