I could not have imagined the POWER of this blender. I had tried making green smoothies in my regular blender and had almost given up, coz they were disgusting...At best I managed to create a slurry of coarse fibrous greens mixed with fruit, YUCK! Then I remembered a commercial I had seen years ago for a NutriBullet and after watching some YouTube videos, decided to get one. Oh am I glad I did!!! I use it EVERY SINGLE DAY. It has now become my favorite kitchen gadget, (close your ears Philips AirFryer) and I thought NOTHING would ever upstage my airfryer!
My green smoothies come out absolutely DELICIOUS! The nutribullet is so powerful and it's cyclonic action works so well that the greens are absolutely destroyed, creating a truly SMOOOOOOOTH smoothie! So good I almost feel guilty drinking one everyday. I am glad I didn't buy another brand and also glad I got the regular bullet instead of the Magic Bullet, thanks YouTubers.
Here's my recipe for my favorite green smoothie:
3 cubes of ice
1 large handful of organic baby spinach and arugula mix
1 large handful of organic baby kale
- press the greens into the cup to make room for other stuff
1/2 organic fuji apple
1 organic banana
About 10 frozen organic raspberries
1 tbsp Nuttzo mixed nut butter
1/2 tsp raw honey
Sprinkle of salt
Add water to about 1/6 of the cup - I think they recommend more water but the bullet handles it and I like a thick smoothie
Blast for 40 seconds and ENJOY!!!
- For a "Red" version of this "Green" smoothie I add 1/2 a beet.
