Wonddering if it's okay to use frozen fruit and/or vegetables in the NutriBullet... will that cause an issue? Does the fruit/veges need to be semi thawed out first?

Please advise... Thanks!

Hi, I use frozen fruit in myHi, I use frozen fruit in my bullet and it does ok.... It seems to dull the blade a little faster though.
thanks for the info... I actually didn't find the blade to be sharp at all which surprised me... guess it's more the action of the blade that does what it needs to... I will probably semi thaw the frozen fruit or veges just the same... :-)
Dull the blade!? I have not used mine yet because I have not been shopping, but "dull the blade" with frozen fruit does not sound good for this product.. What about using ice with the NB? If frozen fruits and vegies stress out the NB enough to "dull the blade," what is ice going to do with my NB! Help.. should I take it back to the store and get my money back? Thanks, Peggylee
I freeze my veggies and fruits than take out the container and put it in the fridge the night before I'm going to use it in the am
If the blade gets too dull does the warranty cover a new blade?
I actually did my first Nutri drink yesterday using some frozen fruit and did not have any issues with it... it actually helped to make the drink colder and gave it a smoothie effect... But I certainly wouldn't think that putting ice in it would be good for the unit, especially considering all the guides talk about adding only water "up to the max line" in the container before blending it.
I used frozen fruits many times in my blast. Frozen veggies and fruits can be just as nutritious or even more nutritious than fresh. Healthy wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.

Peggy, Sorry if I confused you I meant over time, useing frozen fruits seems to dull the blade I have had my Nutribullet for almost a year and 1/2 now no major problems I have replaced the blade 2 times. Keep your bullet.... As for ice I don't know what kind of effect that would have because most of the time I use frozen fruit in my Nutiblast. Krystal
Has anyone tried the Super Food fat burning boost, does it work ? Is it safe ? Thanks,
Glad to hear that... Wondering if thawing them out in the Microwave first would solve that problem. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I used frozen fruits many I used frozen fruits many times in my blast.

Hi, You can use ice in the NutriBullet. However if you are using spring water, you may want to make sure your ice cubes are also made with spring water. Another thing you can do is freeze your fruits – Frozen Berries or Peaches are a wonderful addition and make the NutriBlast nice and cold without having to add ice. Happy Blasting!

I just use slightly less, than I would if fresh. Hope this helps Krystal

I don't think so but they are not very expensive. Currently they are $9.96 + s&p $2.99 Krystal

I'm not 100% sure on the leafy greens conversion. Whenever I use frozen spinach I just use 1 cup vs. 2 cups. The consistency is a bit different, however it tastes about the same. If you wanted to get technical you could use a scale and weigh it out...however I'd just suggest you use about half or experiment to see how much you like in your Blast. For other veggies like broccoli, etc. the conversion is the same for fresh and frozen.
