I bought mine last week. Way, way better than a juicer.
But Im only using it for raw veggies mainly. None of the ice cream type recipes.
I also have a mixture of almonds with 2 dates and ice cubes in the am...makes an almond milk like drink that is incredibly filling (and yummy). I have some eggs in the am also and have no hunger at all for hours.
Anyways, it is expensive but a great investment imo.
