This is taken a step further with the Auto-IQ technology built into the Ninja Professional Plus base, which is equipped with smart programs to take the work out of blending. These three programs allow you to make smoothies, frozen drinks, and blends from fruit and vegetables that are still nutrient-rich. Though there are quite a few components to this system that might clutter up your kitchen, the personal-sized cups are ideal for breakfast when you need to run out of the door.

It can turn ice to snow for cocktails to serve up in the 72-ounce pitcher, and is easy for clean-up operations, with all attachments being dishwasher-safe. The three Auto-IQ presets on this blender are extremely handy for home use – with smoothies, frozen drinks, and ice cream – creating a perfect mix of healthy options and blends to whip up treats. 

With the capacity, presets, and ease of use ticking all the boxes when it comes to family use, it’s hard to see how this blender wouldn’t become a staple in any home.

Compared to the previous option, the Ninja Professional Plus Blender with Auto-IQ, which costs $20 more, it doesn't have the Auto-IQ features and has a lower power rating of 1,000 watts.

The Ninja Foodi Power Blender Ultimate System has the most functionality of any Ninja with various settings for smoothies, extractions, bowls, spreads, chopping, food processing, and dough. It's also Ninja's latest blender debut, so its technology is among the most sophisticated. The chrome body also looks extremely high-end, and the overall interface design is a lot less cluttered looking than other models. It's most similar to the Ninja Professional Kitchen System but has additional speed settings, additional attachments for more advanced food processing, and slightly more power.

6. Ninja Foodi Smoothie Bowl Maker and Nutrient Extractor

The best Ninja blender for nutrients

Specifications

Capacity: 14 and 24 ounces
Dimensions: 6.69 inches x 6.69 inches x 10.79 inches
Power: 1200 watts
Preset programs: 4

Reasons to buy

+
 Built-in tamper  
+
 Extremely powerful motor 
+
 Perfect for mastering texture 

Reasons to avoid

-
 Not the best for large quantity mixes 

Why you should buy: For maximizing nutrient extraction, and super easy-to-make smoothie bowls 

The Ninja Foodi Smoothie Bowl Maker is an excellent (and inexpensive) investment for anyone who wants their new blender to really be able to power through ingredients. This is due to its extremely powerful motor and built-in tamper tool. A tamper within a blender prevents that annoying part of your smoothie-making process when you have to adjust your mix to get the blades to cut through effectively. Instead, you’ll be able to leave your blender without worrying, especially if you select one of the preset Auto-IQ programs. In one touch, you’ll have a smoothie, frozen drink, smoothie bowl, or spread whenever you want one. This is a huge step up from the Ninja Nutriblender Plus, which struggles a little with consistency. Instead, with this model, if that’s what you need, you’ll be unlocking lots of different textures so that you can whip up all different types of foodstuff. 

What is the best Ninja blender

Our best Ninja blender is the Ninja Professional Plus Kitchen System with Auto-IQ. (opens in new tab) Millie, our Reviews editor was most impressed with the food processor attachment in particular, though she thought the appliance itself was a bit bulky, so keep that in mind. 'It was speedy and chopped evenly using the double-layered blades. The various Auto-IQ settings are excellently timed with differing strengths and intermediate pulsing. This was particularly useful when blending a large smoothie or soup because it meant I could leave the setting to work unassisted while I went about making breakfast.'

Meanwhile, if you're looking for a product that strictly focuses on blending for smoothies, we also admire the Ninja Professional Plus Blender with Auto-IQ (opens in new tab), as it is amply sized, includes the smart Auto-IQ technology, and retails at a pretty reasonable price of $119.99. 

Which Ninja blender crushes ice

We believe that any of these Ninja blenders will powerfully crush through the ice, especially since that is one of the basic functions expected of a blender. In particular, models with higher power ratings will be able to crush ice, so we'd look for models with power ratings of at least 1000W to turn ice into a dusting of snow.
