Be Smart

Tip the balance to your health


Tired of measuring and weighing the individual ingredients going into your smoothies? Or do you just not bother and rely on guesswork to get the nutritional balance right? Now there’s an easy – and super smart – way to get the exact nutritional breakdown, in real time as you’re building your smoothie. 

For the past seven years, NutriBullet has been turning the nutrition industry on its head by delivering high-quality blenders to extract maximum nutritional value at home. Its latest offering, the NutriBullet Balance, once again shows they’re at the forefront of innovation and smart technology – and deliver exactly what their customers need. 

The NutriBullet Balance contains a smart sensor that measures ingredients as you add them to the blender. Through its accompanying Bluetooth app – on your phone or tablet – it shows you the nutritional breakdown (calories, carbs, sugar, fat and more) of your smoothie. Pretty nifty, eh? 

Turns out, the NutriBullet Balance – also known as The Smart One – isn’t only a pretty awesome blender, it is set to become your personal nutritionist on your kitchen counter. You can customise and create your own virtual nutritionist by setting dietary restrictions, wellness goals and your preferred eating styles in the app. More than one person in the family? No problem – each can create their own virtual smart nutritionist. But that’s not all. The app has hundreds of recipes (of course, you can always simply do your own thing, no need to follow a recipe unless you want to). Plus, the app keeps tabs on your successes with tracking. And you can keep track of what’s in your pantry as well as create a shopping list of what ingredients you need to get. 

It’s as easy as picking your ingredients – with or without the app’s help – adding them one by one to the blender while recording them in the app, then switching on the blender and letting its powerful 1200W motor do its magic. Then, simply sit back and enjoy!

But, hey, you don’t have to take our word for it, here’s what reviewers say after using the NutriBullet Balance:

“The Balance showed me that my idea of what an under-300 calorie smoothie looked like was far from the reality. As I used it more and more, I gained a better understanding of how to create a delicious smoothie that met the metrics I cared about.” – Connie Chen, Business Insider South Africa.

“It's a beautiful, slick machine that doesn't take too much brain power to use… When it was time to blend, the powerful 1200W motor got to work, whipping up my ingredients in no time. The result was a deliciously creamy smoothie, and with all the nutritional info to boot ­– it measures calories, carbs, fat and protein and it was very interesting to see the breakdown!

You can also specify dietary requirements and wellness goals and the app will recommend recipes based on these.” – Catarina T, staff review on
