I had heard a lot of hype and good reviews about the Nutribullet so I decided to get one for my birthday recently and I can honestly say it is one of the best presents I have ever received. The Nutribullet works differently to a blender or smoothie maker, it extracts instead of blending or juicing therefore breaking down food at the molecular level meaning that it allows fruit and vegetables to release greater nutritional benefits. The Nutribullet not only provides a more nutritional way of consuming fruit and veg but also has many benefits in terms of convenience. This machine allows you to twist the blade on to the top of the cup and blend in the cup, reducing the mess and amount of clean up required. You can just give the blade a quick rinse and put the cup in the dishwasher after using. The machine comes with two small cups and one tall cup, as well as handles that can be twisted on to the cups and two lids to put on cups when travelling.
You can pretty much put any combination of fruit and veg in these smoothies but it is recommended to put in 50% greens such as spinach or kale, 50% fruit and top with seeds or nuts. You can add ice to the smoothies once you fill water or another liquid only up to the max line. You can use water, milks or juice – I usually use nut milks such as hazelnut or coconut, which can be bought in most supermarkets.
Nutribullet provide many different recipe books with the machine, including recipes for cholesterol lowering, blood pressure lowering and toxin blasters.
Some of my favourite recipes which I have discovered myself are: (make in the tall cup)
Small handful blueberries
5 chunks pineapple
1 green apple
5 chunks pineapple
Handful of blueberries
Seed mix of pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and sesame seeds
The Nutribullet retails at around €120. It makes it so easy to be healthy!
