Ever since the Nutribullet blender was released, it has become a worldwide phenomenun. But is it the biggest and best bullet blender?
The Nutribullet is not just some smoothie maker, it is beyond that. A device that can create superfoods, and superfoods that taste great and are quick to make. Using one of these devices is actually meant to release more nutrients than chewing alone does. So what is the Nutribullet?
What is the NutriBullet?
In a word it is a blender but with a much higher specification than original blenders and is probably the best known of the next generation bullet blenders, of which many new models and ranges have been released in recent months.
The NutriBullet is equipped with a number of jugs/cups that you fill with anything you want to blend (generally fruit, vegetables and pulses) to make super smoothies which you can drink or store for later.
But unlike smoothie makers that extract the juice and throw away all the pulp, the nutribullet keeps all of the food including the stuff your body normally can not digest. Thanks to the 600W motor of the bullet, it manages to liquefy the complete vegetable or fruit – skin, the flesh, the seeds, stems, and fibers to make beautifully healthy green smoothies.
The Nutri Bullet makes use of the whole fruit and vegetable, breaking down cell walls releasing those hard-to-get plant nutrients for your body to absorb.
When you blitz all of those fruits, vegetables and seeds, the nutribullet breaks down the cell walls foods and releases all of those health giving vitamins and minerals and turn all the skin, fiber, pulp, and even the seeds into a smoothie that can be easily digested and absorbed by your body. So the Nutribullet will give you more health benefits that just chewing alone does, and will help improve both your health and well-being.
How well is it made?
The design of the Nutribullet is one of the keys to it’s success. There are no buttons to press, no speed settings, and no long user manual to plough through. Simply twist on your cup or jug filled with food stuff and it will start to grind and blend everything to a drinkable pulp. Yum.
The NutriBullet is nice and compact at around the size of a large coffee mug, and will not take up much room in the kitchen. It is (as the name implies) shaped like a bullet and the machine has a pleasing graphite color and has a brushed metal finish. It comes with a number of different sized cups or jugs that have handles and come with screw-on plastic lids.
When one of these cups are filled with ingredients, you then screw on the blending blade attachment and push/twist it on the base. In operation the Nutribullet makes a noise just like a blender as the motor starts spinning. You then just wait until everything has been blasted using the NutriBullets ‘cyclone’ feature that drags all the un-pulped ingredients down toward the attached blade. Once you are happy with the consistency you simply untwist the cup to stop the motor turning.
Cleaning the bullet is also a doddle, just a quick rinse out and it’s ready for action again. Not only is it healthy but you will find that you actually look forward to making and drinking the next ‘nutri blast’.
Getting Started with the Nutribullet:-
The machine comes with a recipe book of starter nutribullet recipes which generally consist of a selection of fruit, vegetables, along with other optional ingredients such as oats, flak seed, various nuts etc. You then top up the solid ingredients with either some water or fruit juice and blitz away.
There are literally hundreds of recipes available with names such as the toxin cleansing blast.
There are a number of other makes and alternative bullet blenders out there that have their own features and make admiral alternatives to the Nutribullet. Makes such as the Nutri Ninja, the Vitamix, and Blendtec. These machines offer different options, speeds and other tweaks, but they all basically do the same thing.
