My NutriBullet is one of my prized possessions in my kitchen … along with my Le Creuset coffee mug, of course. They are the two things that definitely get used the most. I bought the very first NutriBullet that was launched a good 5 years ago. So after many years of delicious smoothies and green juices, I can definitely say that it’s an appliance everyone should have for a dedicated healthier lifestyle. I was recently gifted a pink one which has now made my kitchen a lot brighter and me a lot happier. If you are a regular here, you will know pink is my favourite colour.
So after 5 years of using a NutriBullet, here are 5 reasons I love this appliance:
It is very difficult to get your five to nine servings of fruit and vegetables in a day but with the NutriBullet, this is SO easy and this is why I love it. You can sneak in as many vegetables into your smoothie and you don’t realize you’re actually consuming all these vegetables. I like to use a handful or two of either spinach or kale, and then I add some celery, cucumber and even avo for a little creaminess. I also always add a banana to add sweetness and hide the taste of the spinach or kale.
I love that the NutriBullet has a nutrient extraction blade. This means that the NutriBullet breaks food down to its most absorbable state releasing all the important vitamins and minerals. In scientific terms, nutrient extraction allows you to receive the highest degree of nutrition your food has to offer as it is in an easily digestive and easily absorbable form.
The NutriBullet is so easy to clean and rinse after using it. So in the morning when time is not on my side, this makes making my smoothie a whole lot easier. I just throw the ingredients inside, blast my smoothie, pour it into my glass and then rinse. I kid you not, it takes no more than 10 minutes.
I don’t use my NutriBullet only for smoothies, I also use it to blend soups, make pasta sauces and whip up salad dressings. I love that it is so versatile and can be used for all different things. Just know though, that when you blend soup in it, the soup must not be hot … That’s a little mistake I made one day!
I am not a health freak in any way, but I do try choose to live a healthier and more active lifestyle – you can read more about this here. And the NutriBullet definitely helps with this. Just knowing that I am putting a delicious but absolutely healthy smoothie full of vitamins and minerals into my system already makes me feel better. I find that without my daily smoothie, I can’t quite function!
It is pink!
