The Nutribullet Balance Juicer: is the Nutribullet Balance worth it?

Nutribullet is the world’s original “Nutrition Extractor”. Nutribullet juicers not only blend or juice, but help you receive the highest degree of nutrition from your food in an easily digestible liquid form. No wonder the Nutribullet has become one of the most favourite kitchen appliances for health conscious people who are serious about improving their health.

The Nutribullet brand has made a great leap in technology with the Nutribullet Balance.

What’s so special about the Nutribullet Balance?

The Nutribullet Balance is the next generation of the world’s first integrated nutrition extraction system. It features a built-in scale and a unique Bluetooth SMART technology which pairs with your smart device displaying nutritional content as you build your smoothies in your bullet juicer. The company calls it “The Blender that thinks for you”; that’s really smart and revolutionary!

Balance gives you the exact information on what goes into every smoothie you make by sending the nutritional data to your smart device. It is perfect for those with special health needs and diets, as you will know exactly what is in the smoothie.

How does the Nutribullet Balance deliver?

Here’s what we found…

Nutribullet Balance App

This is how the Nutribullet Balance App works:

To start using the Balance App, you will need to download the App on your phone or tablet (it is compatible with both iOS and Anroid) and connect to the Nutribullet Balance juicer via Bluetooth.

This App comes with hundreds of easy to follow recipes created specially by dietitians to maximise taste and health benefits. You can customise the recipes to your own health needs and view ingredients and the nutritional facts on the App.

It also comes with a Pantry” tab which shows the ingredients you have in your pantry and finds the recipes you can make with what you have. There is a also a “Shopping List” tab which lists the ingredients you need to replenish.

There is also a “Virtual Receptionist” which helps you to customise the recipes based on your goals, eating style, wellness goals and even takes into account your dietary restrictions.

The Recipe Builder helps you build your perfect Smoothie; prompting you to add the correct amount of ingredient. The Smart Nutrition Sensor provides real-time nutritional data as you add the ingredients. The dashboard stores all the nutritional information for the day and the last week to track your health goals.

How does Nutribullet Balance Work

After you have chosen your recipe, the photo, nutritional information, ingredients and amounts will appear on the App. Place the cup on the base and start adding the ingredients following the instructions on the App. The built-in scale in the base will measure your ingredients as you add them and send the data to your App. The App is so intelligent, it will let you know when to add the next ingredient in the list. Once you have added all the ingredients, the app will make a ding sound.

Screw the lid on, turn it over and screw into the base. You will see the count down from 45 seconds to 0 and the bullet will stop automatically when it reaches 0.

This bullet juicer is so smart, you can even measure the nutritional value of a portion of the smoothie you have blended. All you need to do is to place the empty colossal cup or any kitchen cup into the base and pour the smoothie into the cup and the app will count the calories as you pour in the liquid. Once you have done so, you can send it to the dashboard counter which will help you track what you have made for the day up to the last seven days.
