Last year during a job interview, I was asked if I were a kitchen appliance, what one would I be and why.  At the time, I stated I would be the Magic Bullet. When asked why, I talked about how versatile it is and the fact that we used it daily. And bang for the buck was worth more than anything else in the kitchen. At the time, I did not even know about the NUTRiBULLET, but I got one for Christmas and it is 100 times better. Let's start with what is in the box:

The Milling Blade
The Extractor Blade
The Power Base
Tall Cup
Short Cup
Handled Cup
Comfort Ring
Comfort Handle
2 Lids
Guidebook and Recipe Book
Pocket Nutritionist

The design and power of the NUTRiBULLET over the original was astounding. First it has a 600 Watt motor, and a new extractor blade. The power is amazing. With the original, I had to be cautious of how much frozen Mango I used because the blades and motor just could not handle it. With this one I can fill to the max line with just mango add liquid and go. I have added whole carrots and blended them smooth into drinks with other ingredients. It comes with a quick card that has numerous recipes for cleansing, immune boost, energy lift, and more. You can not only make smoothies, but side dishes snacks and more. Between the book and your imagination you could come up with new recipes every day. There is a mix and match chart where you pick a green, fruit and a booster and make your own concoction. Of all the gifts I have received, this one by far was the most useful out of the box and should provide great service for years to come. Now I wish it came with more cups, and the lids do not form a perfect seal and occasionally it leaks on the way to work. But that can be overlooked based on how well it performs. On a scale of 1 to 5, I rate this a 6! You cannot go wrong.

I will continue to post new recipes from time to time on Saturday as I experiment with Smoothie and Juice recipes. And I collect mine and favourites from around the web you can find them shared here in a OneNote notebook, there are subsections for Juices, Smoothies, Gluten Free Options and Other.
