Homemade Magic Bullet: Using a Mason Jar with Your Blender

Want the convenience of making your protein shake right in the glass but don’t want to drop the funds on a store-bought solution? Try a mason jar.

I’ve always wanted a Magic Bullet blender, but I never wanted to pay for it. After reading several mixed reviews I never dropped the $50+ to pick one up.

If you’ve never seen one of the infomercials, it’s essentially a blender system that comes with a bunch of different sized cups that you can make your shakes, salsa, or what have you, right in the cup. Instead of using a regular blender and dirtying both the blender carafe and the cup or bowl you’re going to eat out of, you make it right in your glass.

Certainly a first world problem if I’ve ever heard one, but if you’re making yourself a lot of protein shakes (check out my recommendation here) or making other supplements, you go through a lot of glasses and a lot of clean up.

So when I came across this little tip on Reddit a few weeks ago I was excited to go home and see if it would work with my blender. As it turns out, your everyday mason jar is the same size asmost blender attachments.

For $.79 each I picked up a bunch of mason jars and now have an easy solution for thwarting double clean-up duty.

If you want to see if your blender will accommodate a mason jar before you go buy a bunch of ‘em, the opening of a normal jar is about 2 5/8″.

This is also a great way to make properly measured, individual frozen drinks for guests like frozen margaritas or daiquiris.  Or, do make-it-yourself milkshakes as a cheap date dessert and you can both customize your shake just the way you want.

The cap with the blades for the blender fits right on a typical mason jar. Note your blender may vary, they’re not all the same size.

  1. World’s first youtube video showing those who might want to use a wide mouth Mason, Kerr or Ball jar in place of regular.
