My nutribullet lasted me about 4 and a half years (of using it every single day, sometimes even more than once a day). My husband bought me the nutri ninja for mothers day this past year, and I’m loving it!

See if you and your children can make a different smoothie a day everyday for a month! Pin this post on pinterest to come back to everyday during the challenge. Don’t forget to share with others and see if they can drink a different smoothie everyday for a month.

Good Luck!!
