Update: This Amazon Lightning Deal has ended, but, at only $90, this Ninja Professional Blender is still an affordable alternative to the Vitamix.
If you mainly use your blender to make smoothies in the morning, and are sick of getting stringy bits of vegetables or hunks of ice stuck in your straw, you should upgrade to a more powerful blender. And though you might be tempted to splurge on a pricey Vitamix, you can get all of the high-powered, smoothie-making ability at a fraction of the cost with this Ninja Professional Blender — especially since it’s on sale today on Amazon. With 1,000 watts of power, this blender is designed for juice- and smoothie-making, with an extra-large 72-ounce plastic pitcher and blades that easily crush ice and liquefy frozen fruits and vegetables. But even though it slays smoothies, this Ninja blender is a versatile kitchen gadget that you could use to purée, pulverize, and emulsify — and it’s just $54 on Amazon, a 40 percent discount, today only.
