Favourite Recipes for the Nutribullet

Nutribullet blogNutribullet RecipesNutribullet Watermelon

When I assessed that I couldn’t justify the price of a Vitamix that I’d wanted for so long, I bought a Nutribullet.

The first thing that drew me to the Nutribullet was the lack of mess. I was juicing every morning and the clean up process took away from the joy of the juice! With the Nutribullet just simply fill your chosen cup size up to the marked line with fruit, vegetables and supplements – whatever you choose – add water up to the line which filters in-between your ingredients, screw on the blade lid, blend for 20/30 seconds, and drink.

Nutribullet Recipe Ideas

Watermelime

Watermelon
Lime
Bee Pollen

Watermelon is super hydrating, contains vital nutrients that are excellent for cardiovascular health, and is high in Vitamin C. Studies show that the Choline in watermelon acts as an anti-inflammatory and assists in the absorption of fat. Watermelon is also rich in Lycopene which is a powerful antioxidant. It’s one of my current favourite ingredients in the Nutribullet. Bee Pollen is regarded as one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods. It’s the current health fad and I absolutely love the taste of it! It’s richer in protein than any animal source, and the amino acids can be used directly by the body. Find it HERE

My nephews like this recipe because it’s bright green! The Nutribullet is such a great way of getting fantastic nutrients into children. I can’t imagine my nephews – all aged 6 and under – enjoying tricky Kale without it being blended in this way. Kale is an excellent antioxidant – and the compounds of it convert into isothiocyanates in the digestive tract – heavily believed to work against cancer.

Watermelon
Spinach
Cucumber
Chia Seeds
Supergreens

A spoonful of Supergreens turns anything you add it to green! It’s a great way of getting a hit of nutritional goodness into your body including – spirulina and wheatgrass. I used to drink mine mixed with water but it’s much nicer blended!! Chia Seeds are the highest known vegetarian source of Omega 3 fatty acids. Per ounce (and I appreciate you are going to consume less weight of Chia in this comparison) they contain 7.5 times as much Omega 3 as salmon. They are also high in fibre, B Vitamins and Calcium. I sprinkle them on yogurt too.

Oat Milk
Banana
Strawberries
Pumpkin Seeds
Ice

This was a recipe suggestion that I haven’t as yet tried but sounds utterly delicious. I used to take sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds in to school as a snack as opposed to crisps (thank you Mum)!!! Pumpkin seeds are a great source of zinc and are thought to improve insulin regulation. Oat milk is a great dairy substitute particularly if you dislike the nutty tasting alternatives – however if gluten is a problem for you – it’s not gluten free.

Minty Freshener

Cucumber
Pear
Fresh Mint
Kale

Pear adds a kick of sweetness to a vegetable based nutribullet blend whilst being a good source of fibre, vitamins, and potassium. Fresh mint promotes good digestion – and soothes the stomach – it has germicidal qualities which no real surprise freshens breath – although chewing on the actual leaves would probably be more beneficial with that in mind!

Berry Blast

Berries (frozen on fresh)
Natural Yogurt
Coconut Water

In the case of this simple recipe, substitute the regular water that you add to all blends, for super hydrating coconut water. This is an ideal way to start the day – as most people tend to be most dehydrated as the day starts – and we underestimate the effect that that has on us. I know for me if I am dehydrated I find it very hard to wake up in the morning – it makes a huge difference to me.

    We bought a Ninja Ultima with the travel cups which gives you the option of making individual smoothies… Since it’s the season, I am making Pumpkin Protein smoothies for breakfast. I get so many recipes from Pinterest and have been trying a new one each day… Although I am kind of stuck on the pumpkin for now!! Enjoy and thanks for more recipes!!!

    I use my Nutribullet to make soup! It is so easy and clean. I love it!

    One of my favourites is Broccoli Soup.

    Ingredients:-
    1 potato – peeled and cut into chunks
    1 onion – cut up roughly
    1 head of broccoli – cut into chunks
    1 chicken or vegetable stock cube (maybe 2 – taste when cooked)

    Cook potato, onion and stock cube until potato is nearly soft- approx 15 mins
    Add broccoli – simmer for about 5 mins

    Blend in Nutribullet. Do this in 2 lots if necessary.
    Add another stock cube if needed.

    Serve with crusty bread.

    Lovely!

    I love my nutribullet but does anyone else find it difficult to plan to ensure a varied intake of nutriblasts in terms of shopping / blast planning without having loads of leftovers or resorting to the same 3/4 blasts and getting bored?

    The thing I love about the Nutribullet is that it’s so versatile. You can of course make a wonderful array of healthy smoothies, but also you can make pancake batter, vegetable patty mix, almond milk etc etc – there are loads of opportunities to get creative. Thanks for the interesting blog.
