The Magic Bullet works at least as well as my blender, I think it works even better! Plus, I can make individual smoothies... I like more greens in mine, the kids like a little less... I have one child who can't have oranges, one who can't have dairy and I can't have bananas. If only one person wants one, it's not a hassle to make a single serving, and it's SOO much easier to clean.
My kids aren't fans of "greens" and any chunks would scare them away. Both the blender and the Magic Bullet have been doing the trick well enough that they come back for more. LOL, I did have to tell them in the beginning to close their eyes, because "Green is a color, not a taste."

My blender isn't that great, so I'm going to try the Cuisinart first and if it doesn't work I'll get the Magic Bullet. Thanks so much for your help!

My blender was a pretty good one, but it wasn't a super high-end blender like the Vita Mix, or Blend-Tec. It did a good job as long as I made sure there was enough liquid and I didn't overfill the blender. There weren't any big chunks left, but there were very tiny green specks.
I've used a blender for green smoothies as well, with similar results. Yum!
