A "Mean Green" mod for NutriBullet

Just picked up my Nutribullet and really interested in a blasting version of the Joe Cross Mean Green recipe.
I found one online, but when I tried it, I can't fit everything into the tall cup. Sure I could blast in 2 parts, but that seems to defeat the purpose.

Is there a recipe out there that mods this "juicing" recipe for the Bullet?

Thanks,

Personally what I did was just modify the recipe to fit into the tall cup.
Guess I'll have to continue to modify the ingredients as what I came up with was so incredibly thick, you just couldn't drink it or keep it down. Even after splitting what was blasted into 2 portions and adding more water, still didn't cut it. You can get quite a bit into the Tall Cup but that's the issues. Too much Kale, too much Celery, etc just doesn't work. Was hoping someone may have found a good balance.

Haven't tried it myself - just looked up this recipe when I read this post, actually... but here's one I'd try with the NB: 1/2 tall cup kale 2 or 3 chunks of cucumber 1/3 stalk of celery 1/2 apple the juice of half a lemon (I LOVE lime.. might use lime instead) tiny piece of ginger coconut water to max line As a matter of fact, I might try this tomorrow for breakfast! Diabetic with a sweet tooth.. might toss in a date for some sweetness. It'll be the death of me... ;) Good luck!
Thanks for that, yours looks like it will scale much better than what I came up with.
YES, that is the glory of the Nutribullet. I do this all the time with "jucing" recipes I find......I will simply cut the recipe in half......or quarter it.....if it's a REAL big recipe even.......and it still works out great......
I make this juice everyday in the nutribullet, and then strain into a cup using a nut milk bag. Here is the ratio I use:
1 handful (crushed in my palm) baby kale
1 celery stalk
1 handful cucumber
1 handful or 1/4 apple
1/8 lemon
1 dime sized chunk of ginger
water to just below fill line
Hope this helps! Not an exact science but I seem to get fairly consistent results!
