NutriBullet – not a craze!!
I purchased a NutriBullet 1 week ago in a bid to motivate myself and totally REBOOT my health whilst on uni vacay.
The model I bought was the NutriBullet 1000W.
How it works:
It is very intuitive
(1) Top up with your desired ingredients to the max line on the cups (I must admit I’ve gone beyond the limit on many occasions as you can see from above – but just be careful about doing so, because the maximum line on the cups account for space required by the actual blending part when you cap the lid on!).
(2) Plug it in and flip the switch, it automatically blitzes and about 1 min it will automatically stop.
- Space saving design
- Very simple to use and very simple to clean (no need to take apart everything to clean!)
- Claim’s to extract the nutrients and optimize nutrition obtained from your juices (I have no way to test this out, so I will trust they’ve done all their research).
- Very easy to make any creation you like whether its water based or milk based.
- It is a little louder and I didn’t use any ice cubes – so noise level might be slightly up if you do blitz very solid items.
- The main negative I noticed is that the juice tends to heat up, and I believe it is from the transfer of heat from the actual extraction cutters motor part of the Nutribullet. All my ingredients aren’t at room temperature, they were taken from the fridge, cut and placed directly into the cups. So I think it is heat from the motor which causes the top of the juice to be slightly warm when you drink it straight from the NutriBullet cup.
- As part of the heat generated from the motor running the extraction cutters, it therefore forms a slight suction, which I imaging will be more if you are blitzing a hot soup! So just a little caution to slowly open the lid after blitzing is complete!
Overall I’ve been super happy with the NutriBullet. Besides the first few sips being warm from the processing, it is very easy to use – especially for those who have busy mornings, or like efficiency! I have been using this for the week since I got it and have not found it inconvenient to use/clean. So I will be happily using this daily from now on. I will update here again, it any other thoughts come up!
To finish I’d like to share my green juice recipe with you.
Makes the perfect single serve
Use the 500ml short cup
1/2 Granny Smith
1 Generous handful of spinach
6 small leaves of fresh mint.
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Method: (1) Put all the above ingredients into the NutriBullet Short Cup. (2) Then fill with water to about 1/2 way up to the ‘max’ line of the cup. If the contents have exceeded the max line, I push down on the ingredients a little to make sure the cutter cap can be screwed on easily without pressure. (3) Now plug in, turn on the switch, and it will do the rest itself. (4) ENJOY!
