If you’ve ever dreamt of being one of those people who gets up every morning, makes a healthy morning smoothie and heads off for work, now is your time, my friends. Portable blenders are cheap little life-changers worthy of your hard-earned cash.

While full-size blenders are handy for families who need multiple servings at once, a single serving blender can be used to blend most things a full-sized blender can and even doubles as a food processor.

Most of these portable blenders either come in sports-style to-go cups or include a secure lid so you can whizz up a quick smoothie and go. They also take up way less real estate in your kitchen, so if, like me, you live in a shoebox apartment, you don’t need to find a lot of countertop or storage space.

These portable blenders are powered by batteries that can be charged via USB cable, so you can literally take and make smoothies anywhere. One thing you will have to be aware of when shopping for your new blitzing baby is the power of the motor, which is measured in watts.

Generally speaking, the higher the watts, the better the blend, but most blenders with 300 to 500 watts of power should be able to crush ice and make blended smoothies. However, when it comes to battery-powered blenders, they tend to be less powerful, with that much power, so just know that you’ll likely have to pre-cut your ingredients before loading them in.
