Before I bought my awesome blender, I used a NutriBullet to make my fruit and vegetable smoothies. I found it very easy to use, and especially easier to clean. I like that I am able to just throw a bunch of stuff together, like fruits, vegetables and the like, and I get a delicious drink very quickly. I tend to use my NutriBullet in the mornings, when I need a quick breakfast. My husband does not like it when I leave without a meal, and he insists on something other than coffee. I could get up a bit earlier, but why cut back sleep when you do not have to, right?
Front of NutriBullet
I bought the NutriBullet over a year ago, before I decided to get my very big blender. I upgraded because I am now getting the whole family involved with my fruit and vegetable juices, and need something to accommodate four people. With my NutriBullet, I am able to grind almonds in no time, and I particularly like kale, cucumber, spinach and pineapple. The pineapple makes all the difference!
The NutriBullet breaks down all of the ingredients I throw in, and does it in no time. I do not like to wait, so this machine is perfect for me.
The machine comes with many cups and lids, in different sizes. Depending on what it is you want to use your NutriBullet for, you will be able to find the right blade. If you want to chop up walnuts, or different seeds, I recommend using the milling blade. If you have any questions on how to use each blade, use the instruction manual. It is very easy to follow, and you do not need to have your 14-year old tech whiz translate it for you.

The good thing about using a NutriBullet, is that you are getting all of the fiber in the fruit and vegetables you put in. Nothing is extracted, so throw in the whole vegetable, skin and everything, and you will be even healthier. To make it even more special, try to use organic produce. I like to use organic for the kale, spinach, cucumbers and carrots. I do not mind using regular pineapple, as I tend to use the frozen kind. If I am out of pineapple, I like to use berries, or apples. I also like to put some chia seeds in the mix, as this adds even more fiber to my drink. Once everything is nice and blended smoothly, I usually add the mix to a bigger jar filled with water. I like my juices not so thick, and the bullet does not hold as much water as I would like, but this is not a problem.
