YIKES!! Pretty sure the Vitamix will not be making its way into our home. I didn't realize how expensive they were!

Having owned both the Ninja and the Vitamix I have to say, best cheap"ish" alternative to the vitamix is the Ninja Master Prep! I had a hard time getting rid of mine even after I fell in love with my Vitamix.

Re: Calling all smoothie makers

I use my magic bullet for that stuff, we use carrots and everything. Mine has the blender cup, though, I don't know if that makes a difference?

But my fav is vitamix. It is SO worth the money at Costco! Just don't lose it in a divorce like I did :/

Re: Calling all smoothie makers

I use a Cuisinart stick blender and I love it. Space is at a premium in our kitchen so I love that it takes up no space in the cupboard.

I have a Vitamix too. It was so incredibly worth the price. I use mine daily.

Hmm. I used my Bullet again today and still had small pieces of spinach and apple peel. They are small but I can still pick them out and feel them in my mouth. My oldest son wont touch a green smoothie if he can see or feel the greens.

I've got two blades for it...the flat one and the other with four blades that stand. Which one do you use?

LOST your Vitamix in the divorce....now that's crazy!

I saw that the Bullet makers now have a nutribullet. Supposed to work great for smoothies. Girl I know puts nuts & seeds in hers and it pulverizes them. Hmmm

I have this too! Was a gift, but I love the way you just throw ice in the top and it does all the work with just one button.
