    I haven't been mixing my shakes with ice since my very first week on Medifast once I started mixing with hot coffee, I've been happy. But warm weather is coming to my area this week, and I think I should think about incorporating some cold Medifast meals to my daily routine. I ordered some sample packets of soft serve in my delivery this week..

    So now I need to pick out the appliance: Magic Bullet or Ninja? I've looked at reviews on Amazon for MB, and they're all over the place....some love it, some don't. I'm also not sure which Ninja you all use, since there seem to be a variety..

    Which do you recommend? If you use Ninja, please let me know which model number..

    Thanks!.

    Hi,.

    I use the Ninja Master Prep. I have the big set at home, but just bought the Master Prep to use at work. It was only about $39.00 at Walmart and the big set I bought at Sam's Club was around $70.00. It works great, very fast and chops up the ice in a hurry. Can't comment on the magic bullet as I have never used it. The reason I love the Ninja products is because they are so easy to clean..

    Not to confuse you further, but.... I went through this recently and was so conflicted as to what to buy. I normally don't agonize over buying a new toy, but counter space is at a premium and spending $100 on a blender that may or may not work ver well?!?.

    Finally I sprung for an Oster MyBlend with a 250 watt motor. $29 bucks from Amazon. Got excellent reviews and wasn't super expensive..

    I love it. It blends my shakes into a frosty-like consistency with no ice chunks. Plenty of power without the high price tag..

    Good luck!.

    I just broke my 4-5 year old Magic Bullet and replaced it with an 1100 watt Ninja. They are not really comparable. The Bullet was great and served me well for years, but the Ninja blows it out of the water..

    The Ninja is more versatile. Mine came with a big pitcher (72oz) and two personal use cupswith lids! The Bullet is a bit weak on power and limited on what you can use it for..

    Having said all of that, the Bullet is much less expensive..

    If you want your ice to be fluffy white snow with no effort.

    ONLY the Ninja.

    Will get you there. I have had the healthmate Blender, the Magic Bullet, and now the Ninja. The Ninja is the only machine that does Medifast meals the way I want them. No more ice chips in my shakes and soft serve. No more fighting with the ice getting jammed in the blades. It is PERFECT every time..

    I don't know much about either, but I'll tell you what I did. I already have an Oster blender, so I ordered an Oster shake-n-go cup. It can be used on the regular Oster base. It's like the magic bullet, but less expensive than replacing a whole blender. Hope this helps someone!.

    DH got me the Ninja Pulse for our anniversary um, brownie ice cream anyone? Morning shakes that taste like Frappacinos? No large ice cubes fighting the blades?.

    I looked it up just now and it's about $20 more @ Target than Magic Bullet but the icy snow....mmmmmm!!.

    It's paid for itself in my level of pleasure. ;-).

    Hmmm, but now that I read this, maybe it IS worth buying a whole new blender....

    I just recently bought the Ninja Pulse after using a Hamilton Beach personal blender( HB around $20 from Amazon). Ninja I bought from QVC but they are readily available from different sources. There is no comparison, really. Ninja blows the other one out of the water for crushing ice, any size cubes. The only variations on the Pulse I have seen are what is included with the big blending base.....larger pitcher, how many portable blending cups are included, etc..

    I just picked this up for my husband, and plan to get another when I start Medifast next week. It was $15 at Wal-Mart, which is what I was planning to spend on a small single serve blender (Hamilton Beach). It's easy to clean, which is what I like..

    Thanks for your responses, everyone! Looks like it will be a Ninja. I was hoping for a smaller unit, but just to be sure the smallest one looks like it's the "Master Prep" that has a 48 oz. pitcher a a 2 cup processor bowl. Is there a smaller one available that I haven't found?.

    Sandy, you definitely want something with at least 2 of the 16 oz blender cups. This is the one I got from QVC, but I hear one from Bed, Bath and Beyond has (3) 16 oz cups. That would be even better if you are doing alot of shakes etc..

    Good luck on your hunt. You'll love it..

    I bought a Magic Bullet about a month ago and it only chopped ice well for about a week and a half. I'd go with The Ninja..

    I have a magic bullet and the ninja. Like others have said the magic bullet doesn't even come close. I'm going to try and sell my mb this weekend in a garage sale!!.

    My Ninja is 1100w and it came with two 20oz cups with lids..

    Does anyone know if you can purchase more cups for the Ninjas? I'd love to actually fill my dishwasher before running it....

    I got this one.

    The best part about it is that when the time comes we can actually use it for many other things and it's smaller than my food processor so doesn't cram the counter..

    I have the smallest Ninja. Love it..

    Donated my magic bullet (and all those cups that were cluttering my cabinets) to GoodWill..

    I have a magic bullet that I got as a gift several years ago. I never used it until I started MF. Now I use it daily. It does the job, but when it's time to be replaced I am going to get a ninja based on the rave reviews I've seen on the boards about it. But I'm going to use the magic bullet until the motor goes out. Strictly bc I am cheap that way..
