Nutri bullet

Watching the infomercials for the Nutri-Bullet has really got me thinking. With it, I could make sure we consume the recommended daily intake of fruit and vegetables and help my husband lose weight. I discussed it with my hairdresser, and he swears by it – not the Nutri-Bullet per se, because it is ridiculously expensive, but a cheaper one that does just as well.

Have you tried the Nutri-Bullet or a cheaper alternative? How have you found it? If not, would you like to give it a go? Why or why not?

I bought a cheaper version from Deals Direct. From memory it cost me about $25 plus P & H. I love it. It is quick and easy to make smoothies. If juicing veggies and fruit, it doesn't juice them like a proper juicer - the drink ends up quite thick but then there's no wastage and you are getting the fibre as well. One of my most used appliances.
No - it's far too expensive so a single, non-sporty person, and it doesn't do much else. We all have these 'labour-saving' devices many of which sit in cupboards after the discovery of how how truly fiddly they are to wash & clean!
There is little bench space nowadays in 'open plan' lack of storage & cupboard kitchens for all the New Beaut electronic helpers sold at us?
I probably wouldn't, no. Having your fruit and veg in juice form is better than not having them at all but you don't get as much fibre that way as you would if you just ate them.
I had a cheaper version of it. It certainly did what it said it could, but washing up all the small parts and working out where to store it when not in use (the parts take up quite a bit of space) was annoying so I passed it on to a friend in the end.

Agreed, storage is a pain. But the one I bought wasn't too bad with washing. Just wash the cup and use a small bottle brush for the blade attachment.

No I haven't - but I feel like I may be missing out. Perhaps TV advertising does work...
No I haven't tried it.

But, I can not justify spending large amounts of money to be honest.
I have just cut out Bread and sugar in foods.
Eating lots of veg, and the weight is coming off.
I think if you feel it will help, then maybe? I just worrie about food being broken down so much.
I couldn't do it that way, I like my food as is...lol. :)

The one I bought cost $40, a third of the price the one on TV is being sold for. I guess, it's better to have your fruit and veg in juice form than not at all. That's the reason I bought it. Good on you. My husband and I gave up sugar for four months last year, but I found I couldn't give up ice cream and chocolate, so I've just limited my intake.

Bravo for you! I have given them up too and five kilos are gone already - with no effort on my part. I love my veges *yum*
by Rice
5 kilos is wonderful.It's the sugar that keeps us fat.
by jonaja
No I wouldn't try it. Its an easier way to get in the veggies probably, but then not really the natural way. Eating fruits and veggies not only gives fiber for the gut but also the necessary massage and exercise to the teeth and gums
Nooooo. I have a thermomix….
I have indeed -AND I sent it back!

I got a refund as I found it was not at all like the advertisement and you had 30 days to change your mind!
by Finy
No way! Why didn't it meet your expectations?
by Vee
Cant remember it was too long ago -fiddly i think and it didnt do the first thing I tried -from memory -well a seniors memory is perhaps not so good though!!!
by Finy
No, I have too many kitchen gadgets already!
LOL, tell me you don't have that tube egg cooker.
by Vee
OMG Vee! No, I hadn't even heard of that one!
I know! It's ridiculous!
by Vee
Have a Juice Extractor, also a Vita-mizer, so don't need this appliance!

I just L O V E appliances, & did have to have 'courage' NOT to buy it!

Oh dear! Now this has got my 'interest' piqued again! Might just 'pop-in' to Big W & have a look!

LOL. No donjo, don't do it, lol. Although it is very easy to clean!
by Vee
Oh! Vee, thank you for the 'back-handed' encouragement! Lol!
What's a gal gunna do NOW?

MAY go to a Westfield S/C tomorrow........and..........and..........just have a squiz! Costs nothing to do that...........does it???
by donjo
LOL! donjo, what did you end up going? I bet you bought it, didn't you?! :P
by Vee
Oh! Vee, thank you, but my courage held strong! Lol!
Did lots of looking, though! Cheers!
by donjo
I reckon if I got the other half to sharpen the blades on my blender it would do the same job. To me it just looks like an upside down blender and I don't think I want yet another appliance and the hassle of storage.

I have one. It makes amazing ice coffee for one so i don't have to dirty my big blender. Also makes yummy fruit smoothies.
Iced coffee? Great idea. Do you use instant coffee or coffee beans?
by Vee
Hi vee. This is my easy iced coffee recipe
2 tea sp of instant coffee, 2 t sp sugar, one TB SP hot water poured over coffe and sugar. Place 3 scoops of vanilla icecream in the big bullet cup, pour over the disolved coffee and sugar. Add a large cup of cold milk and blend for around 10 to 20 seconds till even colour. Hope you enjoy. 😍😍
by redph
redph, I will definitely give this a go. I had a craving for iced-coffee today, but had totally forgotten I asked this of you until tonight! Too late now, haha. Tomorrow perhaps. :-D Thank you!
by Vee
I refuse to pay the ridiculous price they ask for it so have a cheaper brand and it suits me fine. I mainly use it for smoothies.
