I wasn’t really planning on doing a review on the NutriBullet when I first got it as a fun kinda Christmas gift.
But now a few months into using it, I’m really impressed by it.
It comes with 3 cups (1 large, 2 small), 2 different blades, drinking rings to screw on top of the cup to make drinking more comfortable, and even a little recipe booklet, which tells you how to make NutriBlasts (basically green smoothies). Now if you’re hardcore into smoothies and juices, chances are you will find this recipe book pretty ridiculous, but for a non-raw/vegan omnivore this might be pretty handy to learn about getting a lot of nutrition in a smoothie.
I’ve been enjoying green smoothies for a couple of years now, and I used to use my hand blender to make them. Often I had chunks of the ingredients that would clog the straw. Not so with the NutriBullet!! It literally pulverizes the ingredients (including chia seeds) into a smooth drink.
My favourite smoothie: Spinach-Apple-Lemon-Ginger. Sometimes with cucumber or avocado. Berry or Mango smoothies with yogurt are also on top of the list.
Another use I discovered this morning: It blends vegan overnight oats into a creamy chia-oatmeal pudding.
I’m sure this is nowhere near as fancy as a Vitamix or Blendtec blenders, but for a more budget-friendly option, the NutriBullet does the job perfectly fine. Cleaning is super easy (I just splash some dish soap and warm water in with the used cup and blend it up for a couple of seconds to clean the blades, and the cups themselves are dishwasher safe). Best of all, it’s super compact and easily fits on your counter under your cupboards.
Did you hear of the NutriBullet? It’s really worth giving it a shot, if you’re in the market for a compact blender!
This was a Christmas gift and opinions are all mine!
