Don’t hesitate to buy this blender! It’s small & compact, most of all it blends amazingly! One thing that used to keep me from making more protein smoothies is the fact that we had a full sized blender and I hated having to wash it after each use. I don't always have enough dishes to run the dishwasher daily, so I'd end up hand washing the glass container and it was a pain. But this little one is so much easier to use and clean. Just press the button and it starts, it’s not loud at all either, a lot quieter than the bigger ones. Easy to clean as well.
It's awesome and super cute. I love using it for when I'm on the go, smoothie or protein shakes. It fits in my purse! Super easy to use and long lasting charge.
I make a lot of smoothies, mochas and motcha lattes, and this blender is great for all of those things! It easily blends fruit and yogurt, and makes my hot drinks nice and frothy. Just be aware that this is a small blender and won't be as powerful as a Vitamix or other full-sized blenders--so always add some water / juice / other liquid to help it blend better. It works best with fresh or soft fruits, but can blend some frozen fruit and (crushed) ice in small quantities. It often takes two cycles for my smoothies to blend until smooth, and tilting the blender (and rotating so it gets every side) is a must. Shaking the blender during or between cycles also helps.
I have never made smoothies in my life but bought this to start with and I love it. I start with frozen fruit on the bottom, then pour in a bit of oat milk, then add a FRESH banana, and pulse it a bit to get that mixed before adding in a handful of SMALL ice cubes (I bought a silicon tray that makes teeny tiny cubes).
