Easy: Turn a Standard Blender into a Bullet Blender

Turn a Standard Blender into a Bullet Blender

If you're like me, you love the concept of a bullet blender, with small individual size cups, but hate the added expense. Those blenders can cost well over a hundred bucks and you still have to buy the special cups. And if you want to make ahead and refrigerate several smoothies, well, you have to buy several of those special cups. This idea serves the same purpose, and quite possibly, won't cost you a dime; if you already own a standard blender and regular mouth, pint Mason jars.  Trust me; once you try this, you will not want to use a blender any other way and clean up is a snap!

How to turn a regular blender into a bullet blender

Simply flip your pitcher over-

Twist off plastic piece that fits into machine.

Pull out blades.

Put blades into an a (regular mouth) pint mason jar.

Twist on plastic ring to hold blades in jar.

When you're ready to blend, fill jar, put in blades and twist on plastic ring. Flip upside down, place in blender and hold jar down with a bit of pressure to keep it from popping out. I haven't experienced this with mine but each blender is different. Pulse a few times to see how it will react and to get use to the amount of pressure you need to hold jar in. Blades do not hit the glass; so no worries about breakage.

I use mine like this everyday, sometimes, several times a day. It's great for making individual smoothies. You don't have to buy special cups or worry about washing up a large pitcher. Clean up is easy. Simply wash blades and plastic ring with soap and water and toss the jar in the dish washer. Easy! Easy!
