If you are still considering what to buy... I recently bought a Hamilton Beach single serve blender. The container is the cup you can drink out of. The lid has a spout for drinking out of and you can put a straw in it if you want. The blades are in the bottom of the cup. Mine came with 2 cups and two lids for $25. It isn't quite as powerful as my big blender, but much quicker and easier to use. Very easy to clean after you are done drinking. I use it every morning for a smoothie. I've had it for a couple of months adn so far it is working great. The reviews were very good on it. For the price if it dies, oh well, I'll get another.

I've recently incorporated juicing and using the NutriBullet into my every day meal planning. I needed to add more fruits and vegetables into my diet and have found the NB to have played a huge role in being able to do that. It's such a huge time-saver when I'm on the go because I can just toss in my greens and then anything else I want, add water and blend in 30 seconds.

It has a screw on handle that I can just take the whole container from blending to walking out the door with. I think I love that part the most. While I love my juicer too, it takes so much longer to juice and then clean and sometimes I just don't have that kind of time. This allows me all the benefits without the hassle.

Clean-up is a breeze, too. It's literally just the cup and blade and you're done in under a minute. I would say if you're looking for a way to get in more fruits and vegetables you can't go wrong adding this to your arsenal. This year I've really had to start making my health my top priority, but I'm also a mom of 4 and sometimes I just feel like in order to make sure I'm taking the best care of myself that I can, I just need that little extra time saver - NutriBullet has been that for me this year.

{Adding, I've owned and used it at least every other day since about February and mine is still going strong.}

I had a magic bullet several years ago & the motor burned out after about 6 months of everyday use. But that was when they first came out, so I would imagine that they have improved the motor since then. I now own a Vitamix & I love it! I make a green smoothie every morning that has 5 servings of fruit & veggies plus vegan protein powder for less than 300 calories. I wanted the Vitamix because I didn't like the idea of losing the pulp (fiber) in traditional juicing so I think if you want to add more veggies to your diet than the nutribullet or a high powered blender is the way to go. Have you looked up reviews of other high powered blenders? They are a couple of models that are priced similarly to the nutribullet that may also interest you.

I have the nutribullet and like it - but it is difficult to adjust what you loaded into if you need to add. If you just unscrew the top and add, then screw it back on to blend again, the top can be difficult to remove the 2nd time.

Best way is to add is to rinse the top well, and wipe the mouth of the jar clean if you add after first blend.

I have both a Magic Bullet and the Nutribullet but I only use the Nutribullet now. I like it a lot and it does a good job of handling very heavy produce in smoothies.

I have a Magic Bullet. I think the Nutri-Bullet is very similar. I love my Magic Bullet and use it daily. I have had it for 4 years. Easy to use and easy to clean.

my hubby bought one. It does a good job, but we've used it a few times.
I don't consume many smoothies, and he's only done it a few times before school.

However, the benefits of a smoothie over juicing, is that everything is there; not just the juice.
Hope that helps somewhat.

I have a VitaMix & I use it everyday to make my AM smoothie - I get in about 4-6 servings of my F & V @ bkfst. I know the uses for the VitaMix & I'm sure the same for the NutriBullet, for healthy eating are limitless.....

I'm only using mine for "smoothies", but I am having a "blast" with mine. I really like it.

thats great to hear! Have you had for a long time? My main concern was that I hear people complain that the motor gives out after awhile.

The nutribullet is not a juicer, but I love mine. It's great for smoothies and shakes. I also use it to grind small batched of cheese or coffee grounds. My kids love it too.

I am debating about buying a Nutribullet but I hear mixed reviews. I do not want to pay for a large juicer and thought this would be a great idea. Anybody out there have one or tried it before? If so, what is your opinion about the product?
