A Nutribullet breakfast smoothie

I’ve been using a Nutribullet for a few weeks now -and am absolutely loving it. Generally for breakfast, I feel pretty darn righteous starting my day with loads of fruit and veg – and also like I’ve given my body a bit of a head start.

No matter what I may (chocolate, cake) or may not (enough vegetables) eat throughout the day, at least I know I’m doing something right for my body from the very start.

A note – this is not an advertorial for the Nutribullet – I have no association or partnership with them at all – but rather a celebration of a convenient and quick way to give my body the nutrients it needs. I often prepare my smoothie the night before – chop all the ingredients, and place it in the fridge. Simply fill with water and blend the next morning, and you have breakfast done in seconds.

I know there is a bit of contention between juicing and smoothies (we have a juicer, blender and Nutribullet, so we swing both ways) – but as long as you are getting more vegetables in your diet, I wouldn’t worry too much about how you do it. But, in a nutshell – if you’re forced to choose – I’ve been told to view juices as a nutrient supplement, and smoothies (or, Nutriblasts, as they’re called) as complete meal replacements. This is mainly due to the fact that using a Nutribullet keeps all the nutrients – and importantly, fibre – from the produce. Juicing leaves these behind, but keeps the sugar from the fruit and veg, which can lead to blood sugar spikes.

I’ve been playing around with a few different ‘recipes’ for my breakfast smoothie, and think I’ve found a favourite – spinachceleryapplecucumber and papaya. The papaya is a fairly recent addition to me, and while it’s quite mild-flavoured, it does add a lovely creaminess and texture.

I’m quite excited to change my smoothies with the season – and include quite a few citrus fruit, and perhaps even avocado (because you know how much I love it). If you’re looking for inspiration, I love this site and this one for smoothie recipes.
