Cup capacity and MAX line

I just got a Nutribullet and I'm wondering if the placement of the "MAX" lines on the cups is wrong. They are a good 55 mm (2 1/2") from the top of the cups while the illustration on page 38 of the guide book shows the "MAX" line much closer to the top of the cup. I ask because some recipes call for 2 cups of greens, three whole chopped fruits and a cup of blueberries. There is no way to get all those ingredients in without overfilling the cup. The two cups of chopped greens alone fill my tall cup to within 15 mm (1/2") of the "MAX" line.
 
Also, the page 38 illustration does show that 2 cups of greens = 1 serving. When I made my first Nutriblast this morning, I was only able to pack in 1 cup of greens in the tall cup in order to stay within the 50% greens to 50% fruit formula and not pass the "MAX" line.
 
I'd appreciate any help/clarification you can provide.
I too had the same question. This morning I packed the tall cup to the top with half spinach and the rest fruit and then added water to the MAX line....it was fine! I thinks it means do not add water past the MAX line....going almost to the top of the cup with ingredients is OK.

Your ingredients can go slightly above the max line, but the liquid should poured in to reach the max line.
Does anyone find that by following the recipe and adding the water to the maximum line, you get a very thick juice. I am new at this. I was using a juicer and since I started with the different recipe starting on page 42, I have not been successful once with having a liquid juice. Please can someone help me as to the quantity of the veggies and fruits that the book recommends. Should I cut everything in 1/2. Also, why is it that I have only been using the large cup??? It seems that all the recipe calls for it. I want to use my nutria bullet just for one juice at a time. So can someone help me?

The NutriBullet is different from a juicer, it will make Blasts that are thicker than juice. It keeps all the contents of the produce you are using in your drink, like fiber, something a juicer separates out. You can experiment and use ingredients that you like and you can use the large or short cup. The recipes are a starting point, where you can get ideas and a feel for your NutriBullet. We highly encourage you to play around with ingredients and get creative. As long as you are using whole foods, nuts seeds and all natural ingredients, you are doing healthy things for your body.
