I don't know anyone who sits on the fence when talking about the Beast Health blender. Pineapple on pizza it is not. No, you don't have to lift weights or even own a pair of yoga pants to enjoy this blender, but you'll definitely want to "exercise" it to its full capacity, both in and outside the house.
As well as being a super aesthetic countertop appliance, it will deliver above and beyond in all its features. Whether you're making a protein shake or grinding coffee beans, the Beast is simple and intuitive to use and there will be no need to work up an extra sweat with daily food and drink prep as I successfully used mine to take on whole spices, ice, and more. It's a hustler baby, I just want you to know. The ideal kitchen addition to keep your favorite juicer company or to help you reach your PB for consistent fruit and veggie intake, I'd rep the Beast Health blender for its good looks alone but there are another couple of reasons why it's Oprah-approved...
TLDR: What I thought of the Beast Health B10 blender
Not sure why I'm comparing a smartphone to a blender, but if the late Steve Jobs made this smoothie maker — I'd imagine it'd look like this. Even the white branding felt very "Apple." Nonetheless, coming from Colin Sapire (aka the founder of the Nutribullet (opens in new tab)), you're assured that this isn't going to be a style over substance situation. Looks-wise, it's more Beauty than the beast.
If you know you want to eat more vegetables and drink more water — this is how to hack adulting. No off-the-shelf, meal replacements, you know exactly what is in your blending cup. And, you're not blowing the budget before 9 am. Forget pre-packed pico de gallo and pesto as this versatile vessel will whip up salsa and more too.
For those days when fruit and veggie supplies are low, the hydration system (with a central infusion chamber) is great for making the fancy spa-like water you usually see in clear glass dispensers. No health club membership needed. You can even pulse your ingredients first to create a more intensely flavored, beautifully-colored water.
Testing the Beast Health B10 blender
Christina is putting the Beast Health Blender through its paces in and outside her home. She loves bringing the chic fluted bottle to the gym as an alternative to the protein shaker that's been by her side every workout. At the moment, this stylish leakproof vessel is getting a lot more use, and *touch wood* there's been no smelly whey-and-water spills in her car. It's the tiny details that make this work in her day-to-day life, including the drinking lid with carry cap which makes sipping on-to-go super easy.

Unboxing the Beast Health B10
Like a well-wrapped present, I wanted to take care unboxing this amazing blender. Because even the silk-white cardboard sleeve, and handle were giving LA vibes. The blender backs itself with sassy slogans and a pictogram outlining all of its USPs. Almost like a dating profile — but with none of the "man holding fish/baby" pictures.
Though many of the components came wrapped in plastic bags, this wasn't your run-of-the-mill material and the packaging is actually photodegradable which means that light will break it down over time — big green tick for eco-friendliness here.
Intentional or not — The Beast looks like a metal dumbbell and feels strong. Unlike similar small kitchen appliances, this is made from aluminum.
While most manufacturers provide a flimsy-looking pamphlet with sample recipes — Beast has got your back with a page (opens in new tab) dedicated to delicious ways to use the blender. Think Greek Goddess dressing (a personal fave), oatmeal face masks, cocktails, and dessert blends that will stop you from scrolling for sweet things on Uber Eats.
How to use the Beast Health B10 blender?
One cool thing I spotted was that there's a small light that indicates whether the blender is clicked into place — lock and load baby! The different LED colors indicate the following:
- Light off: the blender is off
- Solid amber: Unit it on, but the blade or vessel is not connected
- Solid white: Machine is on, and ready to blend
- Green: Appliance is on and blending is in progress
- Flashing amber: Motor overload
- Flashing red light: The vessel is too hot to safely blend
Otherwise, it's pretty straightforward to use. Much like any other blender you've used before.
Making a green smoothie
I often find that green juices can taste a little too "healthy." So, as a halfway house, I used a Love Struck frozen smoothie mix from Amazon (opens in new tab), and a little coconut milk to create a creamy texture.
After just 20 seconds, I was impressed by the smoothness of this smoothie. I know that sounds silly ('cause duh), but I've mixed fruit and veg for longer with other blenders and still had (small) chunks in my cup. This is partly down to the 12-rib vessel. Not just a pretty face — the fluted design breaks down produce seed, skin, stringy bits, and all.
The protein shake test
Pass on a chunky protein shake: it's a hard no from me. I've tried stirring with a spoon, using one of those metal balls in my shaker — and on both occasions, I've still been left with powdery lumps. Thankfully, the Beast Blender crushes whey, every day so you can maximize on those #gymgains.
Crushing ice gives me nostalgic memories of being a child and enjoying a slushie or granita on holiday. If you've ever had one, you'll know what I mean. But if like me, frozen margaritas are now more your thing, this blender can do it all.
As long as you don't brim it with cubes, you'll have that itsy-bitsy ice you need ASAP. Just don't slurp it down too quickly and get brain freeze... I never learn.
Grinding coffee beans
Though I own a good bean-to-cup coffee maker, some of my friends make their java using a cafetiere. Making coffee without a machine is fine, but you don't know how long the grounds have been sitting on the supermarket shelf. So whenever I stop by for coffee, being the BFF that I am, I'll blitz my beans beforehand so that they can enjoy the same fresh-tasting brew as I do.
Cleaning the Beast Health B10 blender
Rinsing this blender is a piece of cake. In the test kitchen, I set up all the tests back-to-back, and there wasn't much of a delay while I washed the vessel and blade. But, if you'd prefer you can pop the vessels in the dishwasher. Oh, and if you're living your best (vanilla girl) life, you might want to invest in the cleaning brush (opens in new tab) (currently sold out).
Note: If you're set on buying the white or grey colorway, be careful with brightly-colored produce and powders. I see you Tumeric, beet, and carrot lovers!
Should you buy the Beast Health B10 blender?
100% yes. If you've taken an L when it came to your healthy new year's resolutions, it's not too late to slay your goals. Sapire understood the assignment when it came to inventing a personal blender that would gravitate toward our generation. Don't grab one and I swear it will only live rent-free in your head every day.
