Collard greens, celery, pineapple and green apples!
That is a powerhouse of antioxidant ingredients and a great way to start the day.
I always found collard greens to be a tough green leaves and chopping them would be the only way to cook them.
So, when NutriBullet Select claimed that their precision extraction blade was amazing at crushing any ingredient, I decided to put it to the test
To my pleasant surprise, it turned them into pulp with no effort at all. I can’t wait to throw different ingredients in it to see what else it can do!
Can you believe that it took me less than 15 minutes to make this ultimate antioxidant blast? If you can get the collard greens pre-cut with the thick stem removed, this smoothie will take you even less time than that.
There! I have taken away all your rationalization for not eating good-for-you meals!
Besides, wouldn’t you want to start the day consuming powerful ingredients that will help fight free radicals throughout the day?? I know I want to!
Although breakfast / lunch for me is usually around 11am, I sill find this smoothie waking me up from my morning stupor. Now, even I don’t have any reason not to eat right!
The best part is that NutriBullet made their containers to be portable!
So, I can just remove the blade attachment and replace it with a flip-top cap and dash out the door! Or, I can put a comfort lip ring (which comes with) and sip it right at my desk. That is one less thing for me to wash and if you know anything about food bloggers, dirty dishes are our biggest enemy!
As I was flipping through their user guide and recipe book, I was astounded by all the recipes I can make using any or all of NutriBullets add-ons. Of all the processors I have owned, this one is the most versatile because I can make lunch, dinner, breakfast, dessert and snacks using this one machine
With all its different settings, this Nutribullet can make pizza crusts and sauces, veggie burgers, salsa, falafal, soups and my favorite is the raspberry sorbet! My mind is already thinking of hundreds of recipes I can blend, pulse and / or crush!
Then, there are the variable speeds….
Be still my heart!
