Nutribullet Juices, Shakes and Ice Cream

I love kitchen gadgets and appliances and I'm always happy to receive a new one to try out. When Selfridges got in touch to see if I would like to try their Nutribullet I was more than happy to receive it. I've often looked at these and wondered if they were all they were cracked up to be, and here was my chance to find out.

The Nutribullet consists of a powerful 600 watt motor and blades that pulverise fruit and vegetables, including the skins where all the nutrients are. It comes with 2 extractor blades, 4 cups, lids, rim and a handle, making it easy to rustle up a juice and take it with you.

I've been using the Nutribullet for a couple of weeks but so far haven't varied my ingredients much, trying to stick to the green juices rather than consuming too much fruit.

My favourite combination by far could be called a healthy mojito really as it has strong flavours of mint and lime, spiced up with fresh ginger, although it doesn't contain any alcohol (maybe next time...)

It's perfect to start the day or for a quick and easy lunch. Add the ingredients to the cup, top up with water, place the blade on, place onto the base unit and press down with a slight twist, and without effort the ingredients are turned into a healthy juice.

Th Nutribullet comes with a user guide and recipe book as well as a hardback recipe book, with plenty of recipes to suit all tastes and needs - such as energy boosting, weight loss and mood improving (all of which I could do with at times!)

Of course you don't need to confine the use of your Nutribullet to healthy juices, I quickly rustled up some banana 'ice cream' using some over ripe bananas that I had in the freezer.

Hazelnut Banana Ice Cream

400g bananas, sliced and frozen
50g Hazelnut butter*
1 tbsp Cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 tbsp Almond milk
  • Add all of the ingredients to the large cup and turn the machine on, shaking the ingredients down onto the blade if necessary
You will end up with a deliciously creamy (and healthy) dessert.

As I had quite a few strawberries that had seen better days I decided to make strawberry milkshake for the kids, by adding some milk and a scoop of ice cream.

Milkshake always tastes nicer when it's in a nice glass.

I'm looking forward to trying out, and sharing, many more juices over the coming weeks and months.
