I recently bought a Nutribullet in a bid to eat healthier. As a vegetarian I’m always conscious about not getting enough nutrients (iron especially) so figured smoothies would be a great way to add more into my diet.
I heard rave reviews about how the Nutribullet is a super extractor that delivers more essential nutrients than standard juicer/blenders etc. It’s not cheap at £99.99 but for me it’s been a worthwhile purchase.
It comes with a booklet with recipes and you can find loads on line. There are also quite a few Nutribullet specific recipe books out there too. The standard smoothie build is 50% green leaves and 50% fruit topped off with liquid.
I’ve been using it for a week now and really like it. I’m still figuring out what blends work best (and trying not to make all my smoothies brown!). It’s so easy to use and there is hardly any wash up to do after! This is a major plus for me as I’ve used juicers before that took ages to clean which just put me off using.
My fave blend so far is 50% spinach with some mint, mixed with raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and passion fruit topped with orange juice (or half orange, half water), a smidgen of chopped ginger, with a dash of cinnamon and a teaspoon of wheatgrass or spirulina. If I am making one for breakfast I will add 2 teaspoons of yoghurt and soya milk instead of juice/water.
I want to make a really nice purple based drink with blueberries and beetroot soon!
