I love kitchen gadgets that make meal prep easier, and more interesting. Recently, I have been using a NutriBullet to blend frozen fruit, chia seeds and kale. With a NutriBullet you can blend almost anything. Here is some information about the NutriBullet and some suggestions that may inspire you to try it yourself.
What is a NutriBullet?
The NutriBullet blends food to gives it a consistent smooth texture, including seeds and stalks leaves and skins of fruit and veggies.
The NutriBullet is easy to use and the clean up time is hassle free!
All you have to do is remove the blade and base from the rest of the machine and hand wash the blade and put the rest of the machine (excluding the base) in the dishwasher!
General Tips for Using a NutriBullet
- Be sure the surface you are putting the base of the NutriBullet on is flat and dry at all times.
- Be sure to differentiate between the 2 blades; Extractor blade (blends the tougher stuff; fruits and vegetables) vs. Milling blade (blends the dry ingredients and powders together)
- Once the ingredients are in the cup, put the cup face down on the base
- Be sure that no ingredients are stuck to the side of the cup; this can make blending less consistent.
Suggestions for using the NutriBullet
My personal favourite foods to put in my NutriBullet are oats and berries! I like to start my day off with oats because they are useful to slowly release energy over the length of the morning because of their low Glycemic Index.
You can put almost anything in a NutriBullet and the machine will blend all the foods together with a smooth consistency. Here are some of my favourites
