NutriBullet Review by

Do you ever get roped into infomercials? I would have answered absolutely not. Yet a few months ago while visiting my cousin, along came an infomercial for the NutriBullet. I'll admit it got me.

"I went from maternity pants to a size 12 and lost 17 pounds."--from

My mind was already primed toward this idea. Previously I had watched the film, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead. The movie features two men who use long-term juice fasts to lose significant weight and reverse health conditions.

I started to research juicers. Unfortunately, I discovered that juicers are expensive, difficult to clean, and create unwanted fibrous pulp.

Addtionally, blenders would not do much to the leafy greens that I was hoping to add regularly. I know this from past experience.

I had mostly given up until I saw the NutriBullet infomercial. This product solved all of the problems mentioned above.

Basically, the NutriBullet was made to pulverize produce, nuts and seeds, resulting in a drink that contains all the nutrients in a readily digestible form.

Reasonably priced and available on Amazon, I bought one as soon as I returned home.

My Initial Impressions with NutriBullet

When I unpacked the Nutribullet, first thing I noticed was that there were no switches or settings. That's because it's not a blender.

It's designed to do one and only one thing, to extract nutrients from fruits and vegetables.

Trying it for the first time, I thought it worked really well, turning spinach, frozen fruit and walnuts quickly into a completely pureed smoothie. Several more attempts helped me to find the right ratio of ingredients.

Really Easy to Use

Just as important, cleaning up was really quick and painless as the blade and cup can easily be washed and rinsed.

If you're a beginner to the concept of juicing and unfamiliar with what to do, you can go to the Nutribullet official website. There you can find the Extraction Prep Chart, which lists a variety of 84 fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and beans. The chart explains how to prepare each item for the NutriBullet.

The handling tips are actually pretty simple. Some of the juicers I researched required a lot of preparation of the vegetables: washing, peeling and dicing them into small pieces.

Mostly these steps can be skipped with the NutriBullet. It can handle peels and fairly large items, as long as it's not overfilled.


I am impressed by the great variety of items that the NutriBullet can process. I don't know of any other product that allows all those different items, including: cacao nibs, chia seeds, celery, kale and raw soaked beans.

You can seriously vary the flavors and nutrients you pack into the cup. I'm partial to banana, mango and strawberries.

Juicers seemed wasteful as you put a lot of expensive produce in but only get a small amount of juice out (that's a lot of wasted fiber). Nothing gets tossed with the NutriBullet; everything just goes right in and gets completely broken up.

A Final Note

One last thing to say about NutriBullet. My cousin bought one as well. And her kids had been loving the smoothies.

She had been mixing up fresh, organic leafy greens along with fresh/frozen fruits and ice. Old enough to operate the NutriBullet with adult supervision, her kids had been having fun making their own smoothies.

They loved watching items swirl around into liquid. Definitely a wonderful way to get fresh, raw fruits and vegetables into their growing bodies.
