Many have asked if CLEAN requires a juicer or a VitaMix. This will be my 2nd year doing it without either of those things. Don't get me wrong, I would love to have a VitaMix, but being without one does not prohibit me from doing the cleanse properly. You should be able to use a regular blender or a hand blender like I use. In fact, I like that I don't have to transfer my soup to another vessel to puree it!
