If you are one of the many people who have gotten a Nutribullet for your kitchen, you may be stuck making the same old smoothie day after day and getting tired of it. You need to get a good variety of foods each day and different ones on other days to get the whole range of nutrients your body needs for you to stay healthy.
While drinking smoothies that are made with nothing but very sweet fruits, such as several bananas, pineapple and mangoes can be very tasty, you need to remember fruits like these contain high amounts of natural sugar. This is better than refined sugar, but you don’t want to overeat them, while neglecting other types that are healthier for you. Use smaller portions of these and make up the difference with a variety of raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. You will love the flavor and be getting high doses of antioxidants and other nutrients.
When coming up with your own Healthy Nutribullet Recipes, try to mix things up. For your base liquid you can use water, whole or skim milk or yogurt. But, you can also use any nut milk like almond, soy or rice milk and others. A good tip is to use canned light coconut milk thinned with some coconut water. If you add greens, cut your kale leaves into smaller pieces first, for better blending. You won’t even be able to tell you are drinking spinach when you add a handful of fresh leaves.
Keep some of your fruit ready to use in the freezer, so that your smoothie is cold and refreshing. Slice and freeze ripe bananas, you can add just some of it, or the whole thing to your drink. Don’t wash raspberries and blueberries before you freeze them, just put them in a baggie. A quick rinse under cold water before you add them will be fine and they will freeze perfectly this way. Use frozen orange juice concentrate without any sugar added. Some cans come with resealable tops that make using a scoop easy. Use raw, unprocessed, organic honey to sweeten your smoothies for even more health benefits. Don’t be afraid to add a scoop of your favorite protein powder for added nutrition. You can use plain or flavored, or simply add some cocoa to create your own chocolate smoothie.
