4/10 Smoothies: Nutribullet is great but I still love pizza best

Pizza is our go-to meal option, like many other American families, I’d imagine. When time and convenience isn’t required, I opt for making my own pizzas at home. The whole wheat pizza dough is easy to find at your local bakery or grocery store and it’s so cheap! I’ve made it from scratch using yeast and whole wheat flour but WOWWWW that a process is too involved…

However, I discovered a whole new world of quick and healthy lunch options when I got a Nutribullet last year. The Nutribullet is a hybrid food processor/blender and it’s one of the best smoothie-makers that money can buy. Mine came with a book of recipes, and we got a few books besides that one.

Making quick meal replacements using frozen bananas, fresh fruits, spinach leaves, protein powder and sometimes frozen yogurt is easy. Add water and press the button- voila. It literally liquifies EVERYTHING within seconds.

Watch me demonstrate in this video from last summer.

As a result of the recipe reading, I bought several items from the grocery store that I’d never eaten before, such as Majool figs and ground flaxseed. Admittedly, I’d still take pizza over a smoothie when given the choice, but grabbing smoothies on the go is an awesome and healthy luxury- Especially in the summer, when I want a cold drink and I’m watching what I eat.

I even found a recipe for DIY Shamrock Shakes so last March we consumed several green smoothies made from spinach leaves, frozen yogurt, vanilla extract, mint extract, vanilla almond milk and ice cubes. Sooooooo yummy. Enough to keep me away from the McDonalds Drive-Thru INDEFINITELY.

Bottom line, green smoothies are not pizza, but they are delicious, healthy and quick to make. Win Win Win.

What’s in your favorite smoothie?
