Ever since I got my NutriBullet, I have been obsessed with making smoothies…good and bad. Between you and me, I put my juicer in the closet because it's just been sitting on the counter collecting dust. My latest smoothie of choice is Kimberly Snyder's Glowing Green Smoothie:
Trademarked and everything, Kimberly claims that this smoothie is the perfect daily detox and should be consumed every morning. She even makes a really compelling argument about why her smoothie might be more beneficial than juice. To make the GGS, Kimberly uses a Vitamix because of how well it pulverizes the vegetables. However…and this is a $350 dollar difference "however"….I think my NutriBullet does the same exact thing. And it takes up less space. And it is easier to clean. And it only cost $99 dollars at Target versus $450 dollars for the Vitamix. Just sayin'.

P.S. I should mention that I'm totally not being paid in any way by the NutriBullet people to say those nice things. I'm just a nerd who loves her blender.
