The Magic Bullet is an all-in-one personal blender and food processor. You can create dips, chop items like onions, make drinks and even blend smoothies with the Magic Bullet. This small appliance claims it mixes, chops and blends ingredients in seconds if used properly. The Magic Bullet comes with two types of blades used for different techniques and is dishwasher-safe. Make a quick smoothie for yourself the next time you need a quick and healthy pick-me-up.

Take a handful of chopped fruit like strawberries, mangoes or bananas and put them into the cup of the Magic Bullet. If you are using smaller fruit like blueberries, raspberries or blackberries, toss them whole into the cup.

Toss in another handful of the same fruit or a different type of fruit. For an icy texture, toss in a handful of frozen fruit.

Measure out 1 cup of ice and place it into the Magic Bullet cup.

Pour 1 to 2 tbsp. of your favorite fruit juice like orange, apple, berry or grape.

Twist the crossblade attachment to the bottom of your bullet cup.

Put the bullet cup onto its base by lining up the tabs on the bullet cup and the bullet base.

Push down on the bullet until it starts to blend. Blend it until your smoothie is at the consistency that you want. To operate the bullet hands-free, push the bullet down and twist it clockwise. Remove your hand from the bullet and let it blend by itself. To stop it from blending, push down on the bullet and twist it counterclockwise.
