Healthy eating can be a challenge at the best of times, so I'm all for any conveniences that can make it easier to eat well throughout the day. Whether that's a motivational water bottle that tracks your water intake or an air fryer that cooks tasty foods with a fraction of the oil, there are plenty of small changes that can make a big impact.

If you're someone who loves a smoothie, but not the preparation needed to make one before heading out for a busy day, you may want to check out the BlendJet 2.

It's a single-serve portable blender, meaning you can store it in your bag and be ready for delicious smoothies and shakes anytime, anywhere.

How does it work?

The BlendJet 2 has all the power of your at-home blender, but in a convenient compact size. It's USB-C rechargeable rather than using a wall plug, which adds to the portability of this blender. Plus, each charge delivers enough power to blend 15 drinks.

Perfect for keeping at your office desk or bringing along to the gym, it claims to power through ice, leafy greens, fruit, protein powder and more in just 20 seconds. Thanks to six stainless steel blades that are offset from the center of the base, the blender creates a tornado effect for smooth beverages every time.

Once you're finished with the BlendJet 2, cleanup is also a breeze. Simply fill it with water and a drop of soap and blend — that way you're always ready for your next smoothie or shake.

What people are saying

Backed by thousands of 5-star reviews on the BlendJet site, plus a 4.6-star rating from Bed Bath and Beyond customers, it's safe to say that shoppers are loving this portable blender. According to shoppers, it lives up to the hype.

"I purchased two of these, one for my husband and one for myself. We absolutely love it for shakes and smoothies," shared one reviewer. "My husband brings his to work pretty much M-F and charges it once a week. Such a great purchase."

"This easy to use blender is just what I needed for a quick smoothie. Great size and easy to clean. Love the colour too," wrote another.

Some reviewers have become such fans of the BlendJet 2 that they admitted to using it "several times a day." Since it can be used for a variety of other uses than simply smoothies and shakes, reviewers have also put it to use making salad dressing, sauces and more.

Despite its versatility, some reviewers have found that the size of the BlendJet 2 may not be big enough for your needs.

"This would be perfect for a protein shake with a banana or something. I add banana, frozen fruit, ice, almond milk, Greek yogurt and protein powder and this little guy is not having it," noted one reviewer.

The verdict

For those who are looking for a quick and easy way to make smoothies at home or on the go, the BlendJet 2 is a great option. With its locking mode that keeps your bags safe from spills, it's easy to bring along with you for a day at the office or a workout at the gym.

Shoppers are loving the ease of use and quick cleanup of the BlendJet 2, but if you're someone who needs a large smoothie to fill you up, you may find this blender too small for your everyday needs.
