When it comes to finding the best blenders, there are certain features to look out for depending on whether you’re making soups, crushing ice, or preparing smoothies. If you’re after a blender to whizz you post-workout shakes using the best protein powders, the BlendJet 2 has got your back.

Battery tech has improved so much that the latest crop of the best portable blenders can, if you’re smashing out protein shakes or smoothies, easily keep up with plugged in personal designs. At its current price, we think the BlendJet 2 is extremely good value, offering on-the-go blitzing power for less than half the price of many designs. 

BlendJet 2 features

It’s a compact, 16oz (454ml), reassuringly solid affair, with USB-C charging, a built-in chopping blade and small control button. There’s also a screw-top and handle attachment. On test, we found that a full charge of the 4000mAh rechargeable battery took around an hour, and for that you can expect to produce around 15 shakes or smoothies, although tougher ingredients will dent that figure.

We found this to be more than enough though, especially as the blade spins 275 times per second and does a good job with soft fruit smoothies, and protein shakes. We did find it struggled with frozen fruits though, taking many cycles to break down a rolled oat, milk and frozen strawberry smoothie for instance.

From a design point of view, it’s basic, but we love the fact you can choose from 38 different colour options, including prints, patterns and celebrity collaborations. It certainly sets the brand apart, and gives you a chance to be a bit zany, if that’s your thing.

Perfect for protein shakes

What the BlendJet 2 does really well, however, is smash out a post-workout protein shake or meal replacement drink – we’d go so far as saying it’s the best blender for protein shakes on the market. Compared to traditional shaking, the results are smoother and significantly more enjoyable, but at only 16oz, the thirstiest/hungriest amongst us may need a second helping.

Whatever you use the BlendJet 2 for, remember to press the button for three seconds once your smoothie is blended as this turns the safety lock on and eliminates the potential accidental button press disaster as you take your first sip.
