Do you juice? Nowadays it seems like everyone and their mother partake in the practice, and why wouldn't they? It's healthy, tasty and easier than going to the gym. But there is one thing that does peeve me about making smoothies in my blender - I can never get all of the juice into my cup! I've tried using a spoon to scrape out the leftover fibers and particles, but they always cling stubbornly to the blender blades until I ultimately just give up and end up having to wash them out with water. A few of my friends swear by the Magic Bullet, which makes things oh-so-convenient by blending ingredients right in the cup you're going to drink them out of. But being the cheapskate frugal person that I am, I just couldn't justify purchasing another appliance over such a minor issue. Luckily, there's another way for people like me to blend our smoothies and drink them (with no annoying leftovers) too. Read on or check out our DIY video for an easy tutorial showing you how to transform your regular blender into a Magic Bullet-like juice machine.

    I'd be very careful doing something like this, especially with a high powered blender (high wattage). The Nutribullet etc has its jars rated for the pressure that's built up from the blending action. The blender has been rated for its own respective jug and has pressure outlet since the jug isn't totally sealed with the rubber top. Mason jars have not been rated for that type of pressure and there is a possibility that it could blow. Mason jars aren't even tempered glass and won't withhold much pressure. Sometimes there is a reason why products are made separately.

    Great tip! I never knew mason jars fit standard blender blade housing! Thanks.
