I’m not a big gadget person but I do have a few small gadgets in my kitchen that I use often and love. Like my KitchenAid stand mixer and food processor. I use those two small appliances often. They each have their specific purpose and can be used for a variety of things. But, what I can’t do in them is make a healthy drink with all the super foods I like so much. They’re just not designed to “pulverize” food into a smooth drink.
I am a believer in the health value of raw foods and I like the idea of being able to throw foods like kale, chard and beets with some fruits like blueberries and citrus in one container and extract all those super nutrients they hold, into one drink. After a little research I decided to buy the NutriBullet. It’s small and takes up very little space and works perfectly. It’s quick and easy to use. All you have to do is buy your veggies and fruits and toss them in the canister for a healthy and beneficial drink that your body will love! You don’t even have to peel or skin anything. You actually want the skin on because of the essential oils and nutrients they have.
Here’s my first drink I made in my new gadget. I ran down to the farmers market and picked up some veggies for my super power drink which makes it even better, I think. Love Farmers Markets!
- 2 kale leaves
- 1 swiss chard leaf
- 1/2 yellow beet diced
- few sprigs of mint leaves
- 1 nectarine
- handful of blueberries
Just put everything in the bullet (cleaned of course), fill with ice cold water to line and blend away. It only takes a minute!
