I have a Ninja and I do like it. I must be very picky, I'm having a hard time finding good recipes. I either make some that I don't like, or get sick of them fast. Anyone have recipes and/or link to some good recipes? I try to mix in fruits, veggies, nuts, other healthy stuff... Thanks.

We have had ours almost two years and it has been great.

But the other day the extractor blade seized. There are ways to soak and clean to get them going again, or you can spend ~$12 and get a new one shipped to you.

We will be getting the new blade since it is a great thing. I like it for more than the juicer my wife bought. Which is a pita to clean and use. I can just peel and core and throw it all in the NutriBullet.

I had a Magic Bullet for a long time and it always worked pretty well. I've used a lot of blenders for smoothies over the years and it was the best one until then. A couple of years ago we upgraded to a Blendtec and while I haven't missed the MB, I would still recommend it as a good value for the price.

You will also need to add a little water to taste.

I just got a Groupon alert for a reconditioned Vitamix for $349, normally $649.
Darn, even the reconditioned cost is pricey. Just in case anyone was contemplating one.

We have the 600 bullet. It gets used several times a day and travels with us everywhere. We were going to get a Vitamix as well but quite frankly since the bullet does everything we need we decided to save the $600-700 bucks. We do loads of frozen fruits and ice.
My wife like the 600 but I like the larger container the 900 also has.
Morning smoothie is almond milk, Greek yogurt, 2 espresso shots (or packet of instant coffee if traveling), whey powder ( kids and wife add banana to theirs )

My wife had a nutribullet. Used it every day. It leaked all over the place after a year. This appears to be a common problem. If you read the reviews people will complain that they don't completely cut up green leaves. We found a vitamix still in the box on craigs for $350. My wife makes smoothies with lettice etc in it everyday. And we have hot, homemade soup in 5 minutes.

Hello! Thanks for posting your comments on different brands. I am looking for reviews because I'm buying a Single-serve Blender.

I forgot this thread existed! Not that long after I posted above, my Nutri-bullet died. It just went up in smoke. I moved over to a Blendtec (reconditioned) and it's been going strong since. I did have a flawed container, but Blendtec replaced it without issue.

I know the Blendtec is not a single serve blender, but I use it for everything. It gets a huge amount of use and it just keeps going. If you're going to do a lot of frozen fruit you might want to look for a blender that has a very strong motor and a great warranty.

Got a Vitamix 5300 new at Costco $329. Awesome appliance. Looked at the nutribullet, decided it didn't hold enough greens; I make a double for my wife and myself every morning. Killed our Osterizer that way and wanted something that would handle it.

1 banana
1 avocado
1 cooked beet (cold)
1/2 cooked yam (cold)
2 capsules probiotics
2-3 scoops collagen protein
Bunch of greens -- spinach, kale, beet greens, whatever, kind of a lot
6 oz. beet broth (purple water reserved from cooking the beets and refrigerated)
Handful of ice

My kids think the very idea of beets and kale in a smoothie is gross and won't touch it, but it's AIP and holds me until lunch. The banana and avocado make it smooth and creamy, and since I haven't had refined sugar in months it tastes quite sweet.
