Magic Bullet Works Great For Quick Smoothies!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I bought a Magic Bullet a month ago and I use it almost everyday. I use it mostly for making smoothies. I just dump everything in the big cup and it blends everything in like 30 seconds or less. Clean up is easy too..just wash the cup and the blade. I don't think I'd like using a full size blender only cuz I really dislike the cleaning part.

It's great for other stuff as well such as grinding spices, coffee, and chopping onions etc. Only thing I found that I dislike, it's not made for shredding cheese. It will get all clumped up.

    Try this goodie--fat free half & half, 1-2 T sugar-free instant pudding, ice. In a full size Blendtec blender, I use 12 oz ff 1/2 & 1/2, 2T mix & 2C ice for 2 servings. Very much like soft-serve. A real tasty and big treat for about 100 calories. Try butterscotch--very tasty in this. Chocolate is great with a little malt powder (adds calories, though). Enjoy!!! emoticon

    I picked up a Magic Bullet at a thrift store. It is so much easier for clean up that I find now I do more with that then the full size blender. You can go online for recipes if you are in need of them.

    I use something similar and just love it! It makes great smoothie treats with real fruit that I eat in place of ice cream.

    I found a GE brand singel serve mixer at Walmart for 19.99, now they are selling for 14.99!!! Not sure how it measures up to a Magic Bullet as far as RPMs or whatever the power is, but I love mine so much! emoticon

    I have one at work to make smoothies at work! LOVE it!! I was surprised at how well it worked. Sometimes it doesn't get the all the frozen whole strawberries, but over all I think it is great for the money~and convenient!

    I LOVE my bullet. i use it all the time to make breakfast smoothies. I love that you can mix it up right in the cup so there are fewer dishes to do and you gotta love that!

    The fake "soft serve" sounds great! I throw in unflavored whey protein powder to make it a "high protein" shake. I will definitely be trying out the "soft serve" recipe WITH the protein. Magic Bullet is wonderful!!! Love LOVE LOVE IT!

    Easier to clean? Sounds like my kind of gadget! LOL!
