what do you make in a magic bullet?

Just got one on special at costco to try for protein shakes. Saw a recipe for chicken or tuna salad that uses a wedge of laughing cow and veg that would be great for down days. Omm maybe? I want a shaved ice, hope it will pulverize like the infomercials show. Make a syrup from erythritol and something...

The vlc smoothie that all hcg'ers make, with strawberries, spinach & zero fat cottage cheese. I believe with 1 tbsp on cocoa, it is about 80 cals.

LOVE the magic bullet! I use it to make smoothies (not great and blending ice though) and guacamole. Pesto, sauces, quick soups, etc are all great in the MB. Enjoy!

Please post your recipes you make.

So it doesn't powder ice? Hmmm. Have to try, if not it goes back.

Prior to LC I used mine to make smoothies using skim milk & frozen strawberries. I have a box of coconut milk I need to use so looking forward to that now!

Also used it last week to make the chicken pizza crust since I didn't have a food processor!

Gluc Shake!

Ingredients:
1 cup (8 oz) Calorie Countdown Fat Free Milk (35 cals) or Unsweetened Almond Milk (40 cals)

3/4 tsp Gluc powder

Nice splash of SF syrup of choice. I used Strawberry, but have also used vanilla, chocolate, peanut butter and caramel.

2 to 3 TBS sweetener.

3 to 4 ice cubes

Directions:
Put on ingredients in a blender or magic bullet and blend well until it thickens up like a milk shake. Don't over blend or you will get pudding (which is a good thing, too ) The ingredients will expand, giving you about 12 to 14 oz of "shake" when you are done.

Drink immediately!

35 to 40 calories depending on what milk product you use!

I love my Magic Bullet and am always looking for any excuse to use it!

Low Carb Cream Cheese Pancakes. These have no flour and taste great with sugar free syrup. They are very thin pancakes and I usually get 4-6 small pancakes but if you have gluc powder they will be puffy like real pancakes:

2 oz cream cheese (I use fat free and cant tell the difference)
2 eggs
1 packet stevia sweetener
1 teaspoon gluc powder (optional)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Put all ingredients (except gluc powder) in a blender or magic bullet. Blend until smooth. Add gluc powder and blend well. Pour 2-3 tbsp of the batter into a hot pan greased with pam spray. Cook for 2 minutes until golden, flip and cook 1 minute on the other side. Repeat with the rest of the batter. You can make larger pancakes if using the gluc powder.

200 Calories; 4 carbs for entire recipe.

-----------

I love this recipe by Hungry Girl for Onion Rings and use the Magic Bullet to blend the onion ring coating. They are a lot of work to make but sooo worth it and with sugar free ketchup talk about guilt free onion rings! 155 Calories for the entire recipe!

I want one but I keep getting stuck with kitchen gadgets that i never use.

I actually bought a Slapchop. OMggggg. I never use it, it's a real pain to clean.

I bought one of those Flavorwave ovens. I thought I would use it all the time. I used it like 3 times and stored it away.

I have a blender, but I hate dragging it out and then cleaning, it's a pain to clean around those little blades at the bottom.

Food processor, bleh, big, bulky... stuff gets everywhere... way easier to just clean a knife and cutting board. I even prefer the chore of shredding cheese by hand than having to clean it.

The only tools that I regularly use I guess is my hand mixer (because no WAY i'm doing THAT by hand) an my immersion blender, but the immersion blender is once in a blue moon when I make mashed potatoes or cauliflower bisque... and even now, I've started buying mashed potatoes in the frozen foods section so not even for that anymore.

But the magic blender commercial makes me laugh (the one with all the people sitting around the big island going oooh can you make THIS?!) and it does make me want one, I just know I'd never use it!

I have a knock-off from Penney's but it does the same thing. I use mine to make shakes.

I'd make thicker things, but honestly I hate trying to get the remnants off the blade.

If you don't like cleaning the blades, after you empty the container, put some water in it and whir it again. That will clean it or at least thin down the mess.

If you don't have a Magic Bullet but do have a regular blender, standard (not wide-mouth) canning jars fit most models (definitely Oster). I love this because canning jars come in all sizes!!! The small jars are really great for grinding spices & coffee.

Buying Classico spaghetti sauce jars is like getting free canning jars, lol! Also a good way to test whether your blender is going to cooperate, if you don't happen to have canning jars in your house.

A lot of peanut butter & mayo jars will fit, too, if you prefer plastic containers.

Don't blend anything hot in a jar!

I turned the ice maker on (we don't really use ice around here, especially in winter), made a batch of delicious low cal chocolate syrup, and hubby wants a mocha frappucino when the ice is done. adding the chocolate syrup recipe to down day sticky, it is actually good.
will report back on the frappucino.
printed out a lot of clean/healthy blender/bullet recipes today so we shall see.
now I can make the babyfood carrots right in the bullet container for my protein bars that masquerade as carrot cake. nom

It's not cleaning it that's so bad, it's getting the batter or whatever off the blades .. you know, the good stuff! Seems I always have half the good stuff on the blade! I tell ya .. licking the blades ain't as easy as licking beaters ...

Guilty of licking the blades!!!! I figure if I counted those calories I'm getting them one way or another! Of course it always crossed my mind - would would I do if I cut off the tip of my tongue.....

It comes with lots of small containers (instead of a pitcher with an open top), so you can leave whatever you make in it...then store/eat/drink without having to pour it out. Less waste & washing!

Other than that, idk if it's more powerful or anything.

Its just a baby blender for convenience. I hate getting out my big powerful blender for puny jobs...you can use this as a spice mill, grind a small batch of oat flour, make a quick single smoothie, etc. Since our sons are both off in the navy we don't need me cooking for an army (if you'll pardon the expression) and we can take the bullet in the rv too.
