    Default Alba shakes

    Can someone please remind me what the point value is on these shakes and if it counts for a dairy too?

    I seem to remember if it's made with water, it's 1 dairy and 1 point and if it's made with FF milk, it's two dairys and 3 points?

    Is that right? It's very possible I'm remembering wrong

    Thanks, Joanne.

    What is a good price for a magic bullet blender?

    I have seen them at the flea market (new in box) for $39.00. Is that about right?

    I haven't priced a magic bullet so I don't know if that's good or not.
    I have an Oster blender that can use mason jars as the container so I don't have to dirty the big pitcher but have the power of a full blender.

    I use a blender too. I had the Magic bullet and it really didn't last that long.
    I mean it still works I can dice other things just not Ice as that part fell apart.
    I know I can buy a replacement but The blender works better anyways.

    I broke my blender trying to blend ice. Black smoke and a horibble smell is all that happens now.

    My biggest issue with a blender is that its a pain in the rear to clean (same problem as the George Foreman grill without the removable grill surface)

    I wanted something that I could mix the shake in, drink it in and then throw the part in the dw.

    It's all about ease of use and convenience for me!
