It’s a very common question to ask – can I use frozen fruit in the Nutribullet? Here we answer the question and describe some simple recipes that you can try using frozen fruit in your Nutribullet.

So first of all let’s look at the different models of Nutribullet, and consider the wattage:

Nutribullet wattage

As you can see from this table, all Nutribullets are equipped with enough power to deal with frozen fruit and vegetables, although with the Magic Bullet it’s best to let it thaw slightly and to use softer types of fruit such as berries and mango. Even the Nutribullet 600 can struggle with larger pieces of frozen fruit and ice, so if possible use smaller chunks.

You should have virtually no problems whatsoever with the 900 pro and above as these are really powerful blenders that can more than accommodate frozen fruit in nutriblasts.
