I have the Vitamix blender but I’m a bit lazy, so, for me, it gets to be a hassle to use it for post-work out nutrition. Too many things to wash afterwards and too much leftover smoothie left in the container. So I don’t use it.
My kid bought the Magic Bullet and I decided to use it one day, and it has been frigging awesome.
- Drink straight out of the single-serving cup that attaches to the mixer
- Cut up some fruit, put them in a big ziploc bag and throw it in the freezer; alternatively, buy bagged frozen fruit if your spouse is not into cutting up fruits for you. Bananas getting over ripe? No problem! Cut them up and put them in the freezer.
- Mix with favorite recovery/shake concoction.
Drinking something cold after a hot indoor workout must release endorphins or something, because the smoothie tastes soo gooood!
The only concern is that I sometimes use the aftermarket 22-oz cup and I wonder if I’ll burn out the motor from putting in the ingredients above the max fill line.
I’m not sponsored by Magic Bullet or by the single-serving blender industry association and I really don’t want to be a shill . . . but really, this is awesome and wanted to share. I’m even thinking of getting another one that I’ll take with me when I travel.
