In the small container I put kale, baby spinach ( 1 cup each) a banana, at least a cup of berries and some other fruit like half an apple or peach. Then fill to the line liquid of your choice. I use water, juice or almond milk usually.
I like this better than juicing. It's less messy and you get all the fiber as well as nutrients.
I haven't tried to make peanut or almond butter with it, because I use my food processor. But I don't think you should make nut butters with it, because you're not supposed to leave the nutribullet running for more than a minute, and it takes about 12 minutes to make smooth nut butters. Hope that helps!
Use the large cup for celery and cut it into 3 inch strips and you'll be fine. I have best results with carrots wen I buy the match-stick kind and again, use the large cup. Carrots are the only thing I've had to blend twice - everything else has always been completely puréed after one 30-second cycle. This isn't a blender, it's an obliterator!
The NutriBullet blends the apple into a smoothie like texture. It is not a juicer; it does not separate the fiber/pulp from fruits, but the results are so smooth and delicious that it is like having a jamba juice or Naked Juice. The amount of water you add will determine how thick your drink is. It is a fantastic product!
Have to think for a bit. The base, 1, tall cup 2, 1 small cup 3, 1 rings 4, 2 blades 6, 2 blades 8, caps for travel 10 and the 2 books 12. I got mine from here and love it. Great way to get more raw greens into you. Children love apple, banana and spinach smoothies. http://www.nutribullet.com/index.php?r=site/whatyouget
