Product Review: Oster Juice & Blend 2 Go Juice Extractor

Nothing says healthy like juicing your veggies or making a green smoothie. I love drinking kale smoothies, but until recently, I've left juicing to the professionals. Well, those days are long gone.

I recently received the Oster Juice & Blend 2 Go Juice Extractor. Don't be intimidated by the long name, it was extremely easy to use (this coming from a juicing amateur.) The set-up for the juicer took about three minutes. It has one base, but two attachments. One is the juicer, and the other is a personal blender. All I had to do was chose the attachment I wanted to use on the base and put it in place.

My favorite part of this juicer is that you can juice your fruit and veggies, then blend them to make a smoothie in the to-go cup. It saves me time in the morning because I can take my breakfast with me and drink it as I walk to work.

Here's a simple recipe I made with the Juice & Blend 2 Go:

Ingredients:

  • Kale
  • A handful of mixed berries
  • A mango
  • 1/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup of ice

Instructions:

  1. Juice the kale, berries and mango using the juicing attachment. The juice will flow into the to-go blend cup.
  2. Once you are done juicing, add the yogurt and ice to the blend cup.
  3. Attach the blender to the top of the blend cup. Remove the juicing attachment from the Oster base and place the blender on the base.
  4. Blend the smoothie until you get the desired consistency. Screw on the to-go cup lid and enjoy!
