As you probably know by reading this site, I love me some breakfast smoothies! The problem was, I was using a regular cheap blender to make them each and every morning, which means that I really needed to water down the smoothie, or be ready to chew what should have been a “liquid meal.”
Thankfully, because my wife is awesome and actually listens when I complain about things, I got a NutriBullet for my birthday!
As you’d probably expect, I immediately threw all of the cups and lids in the dishwasher, and then as soon as they were done I made my first smoothie with kale, blueberries, broccoli, carrots, olive oil, ghee, and a little bit of water.
It. Was. Delicious.
I didn’t have have to chew it or choke it down. It had awesome consistency and tasted great! Plus it was super easy to clean up.
Before I got the NutriBullet, I had been looking at getting a Vitamix, but it was just so hard to justify spending so much money (in some cases, up to $650!) for a quality blender, despite all of the rave reviews. Plus, I didn’t need something that heated my food and made soup, so, again, I saw no need to pay for bells and whistles I was never going to use.
What are your thoughts? Do you have either a NutriBullet or a Vitamix? Do you have to choke down your smoothies? Leave a comment below and share your thoughts with the community!
