A Few of My Favorite NutriBullet Recipes

Includes a Post Workout Recovery Drink

NutriBullet recipes are a necessity for those who choose to purchase the NutriBullet.  I prefer to use a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables in my NutriBullet recipes, making up different combinations to see which ones taste the best.  In this article, I've listed 3 recipes that I really enjoy and find myself making quite often.  If you're still on the fence about purchasing a NutriBullet, this article provides a lot of great information.

NutriBullet Recipe #1 - Tropical Sunrise

  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach (rinsed)
  • 1/2 cup sliced mango
  • 1/2 cup sliced pineapple
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

If you have frozen mango and/or pineapple, make sure it's thawed before using it in the NutriBullet (affiliate link).  I've found that it's kind of hit or miss when trying to blend frozen fruits, sometimes the blade can chop them up and your smoothie is nice and cold.  Other times, the blade can't blend the frozen fruit and then you have a bunch of chunks in your drink.  Feel free to experiment, but I tend to use either fresh or thawed fruits in my NutriBullet recipes.

NutriBullet Recipe #2 - Banana Berry Blast

  • 2 handfuls chopped romaine lettuce (rinsed)
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

The amount of almond milk can be modified, depending on how thick you want your NutriBlast to be.  The less liquid you put in your smoothie, the thicker it will be.  I've found that 1/2 cup makes a good consistency for the drink, but you can change that depending on your personal preference.

NutriBullet Recipe #3 - Post Workout Recovery Drink

  • 2 handfuls baby spinach (rinsed)
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup blackberries
  • 1/4 cup raspberries
  • 1/4 cup strawberries
  • 1 scoop chocolate whey protein isolate powder
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

This is my post workout drink of choice, which includes lots of antioxidants from the berries, phytochemicals from the spinach, and protein from the whey isolate powder.  I've found it to be perfect as a cool, refreshing exercise recovery drink.

I'm sure you noticed that I use unsweetened almond milk in all of my NutriBullet recipes.  This is because it has fewer calories than skim or soy milk, and I actually like the taste of it better as well.  You can use a different type of milk, or even water if you'd like, but in my opinion almond milk tastes the best.
