Smoothies provide a tasty and nutritious way to continue your intake of raw vegetables and fruit with a variety of combinations that make your tastebuds go aaaaaaaahhhhh!!!! [seriously]
You all have likely viewed the late night commercials about the Nutri Bullet NBR-12 12-Piece Hi-Speed Blender/Mixer System being the be-all / end-all to juicers and I can wholeheartedly say that everything that is said about Nutri Bullet in the commercials is totally TRUE. Last year, I in invested in a Nutri Bullet and I LOVE IT! I no longer have a need for my old green-top blender, my shiny but messy silver juicer — Nutri Bullet is all I need for any blending, juicing, extracting and smoothie need. Unlike the other mentioned gadgets, the Nutri Bullet actually breaks down the pulp, skin, seeds and stems of plants we eat down to a sumptuous, delicious and nutritious drink. Nothing is wasted and there is no cleanup. The greatest advantage is that vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds are ready for optimal absorption into the bloodstream after the Nutri Bullet extraction process. The Nutri Bullet comes with a book that contains a Superfood 6-week Transformation Plan, along with several life-boosting nutrient extraction recipes.
If you are in the market for a new juicer, or even if you are not in the market for one but you plan to continue on your path to improved health, I would highly recommend investing in the Nutri Bullet or at least put it on your holiday gift wish list! (smile)
Here is the recipe for one of the first smoothies using Nutri Bullet:
Toxin Cleansing Blast
- 1-2 handfuls of rinsed spinach (could use a spinach/kale combo)
- 1 cored pear [if using Nutri Bullet, no need to do anything but wash and cut in fourths, use hull, seeds and all]
- 1 banana
- 1 cored apple [if using Nutri Bullet, no need to do anything but wash and cut in fourths, use hull, seeds and all]
- 1 cup of pineapple
- 1 cup strawberries
- 5-7 walnuts
If you are making this for one person, you may want to use 1/2 of the listed ingredients. Extract, pour into your favorite glass and enjoy!
