I have always used a juicer and wanted to give the nutribullet a try. The problem I'm having is when I add the water it takes all the flavor out. Makes it taste watered down. Do I have to add water? Or do you have any suggestions?  Thank you.

Hey Fluttersz! A little less water should help it taste ...not-so-watered down! You can also use almond or coconut milk, coconut water, tea, or certain ingredients will help make your Blasts creamier: banana, avocado, mango, the possibilities are endless!
If you have a juicer{Ido and the nutri B. I was thinking of getting my juicer out and useing the juice and the pulp and put that in my nutri bullet. I like Apple and carrot juice and thought that I would like that instead of water. I have been doing this for 5 days now and useing alot my dark greens and veggies. Also thought about adding 1teaspoon or 1T. of 100% pure pumpkin{1/2c.is 40 cals.{But use 1t or T. what do u think?Im hopeing to loose30lbs.

Those are all great ideas!! The only thing I caution with pure fruit juice and carrot juice is the amount of sugar. Maybe do half juice/half water to cut it down :) I love pumpkin puree!! I use it in everything from my Blasts to Oatmeal and Pasta!
I love the unsweetened almond milk....30 cal/cup, smooth taste and lots of calcium. Guilt-free!
I never use anything but water in my blasts. I use a little of a LOT of different ingredients in them and fill my tall cup to and sometimes a little passed the fill line. Fruit: banana, pineapple, cherries, blueberries, lemon, orange, strawberries. Veggies: brocolli, spinach. Powders: tomato, beet, apple cider vinegar, and sweetened (sucralose) protein powder. My blasts are delicious! I'm not saying you have to use all these things, but experiment adding and decreasing things till you get the taste to your liking. Although I like almond milk, I'm now allergic to nuts, but for anyone who isn't I would highly recommend it. It gives it a very creamy, smooth taste.

I always like using unsweetened almond milk. It makes the blasts creamy and provides a ton of great nutrients!
I fill the large cup up to the top (I only leave enough room to screw on the extractor) with fruits and veggies, then add water only to the max line. My blast come out pretty thick and are no slouch on flavor. Perhaps you should keep the water the same but fill the cup with the good stuff. Oh yeah and I pack those greens in tight!
Watermelon works wonders for my Nutriblast's Maybe try to use that instead of water, it helps sweeten the smoothies a great deal. We also use Vanilla flavored almond milk if we don't use watermelon.
Mmmm watermelon is awesome!! I just bought my first one of the season and it is cut up into chunks and waiting for me in the fridge! I will use it in all my blasts this summer. As for liquid, I also found that water seems to 'water it down' so I use unsweetened green tea that I make at home and keep in the fridge. I also use coconut milk for my fruity blasts.
