Super Smoothies

By AFM Staff – October 1, 2014

For smoothie lovers, the NutriBullet is one of those must-have items. Its blades break down and extract nutrients, which is a step above the whipping and stirring that occurs in most blenders. The NutriBullet comes with an extractor blade (the primary blade) and a milling blade (designed to grind herbs, chop nuts, and mill seeds), both of which are stainless steel and never need sharpening. Included with the NutriBullet are 24- and 18-ounce cups for different serving sizes and mixtures; the 18-ounce cups also come with re-sealable lids so that you can create single-serving beverages to take with you. Cups and lids are BPA free and dishwasher safe, though blades and motors must be washed by hand. A user guide and recipe book are included and provide nutritious recipes, food tips, and a six-week "transformation plan."

The NutriBullet (shown here) has a 600-watt motor. There’s another product called the Magic Bullet; it is smaller than the original NutriBullet, with a 250-watt motor and a maximum vessel capacity of 18 ounces. Both models are compact and take up little counter space. Price ranges from $90 to $130 for the latest update, the Magic Bullet NutriBullet Pro 900. This extractor can be purchased online at or at a variety of stores in town, including Target, BestBuy, Kohl’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, JC Penny, and Sam’s Club.
