Super simple Nutri bullet smoothie
I love smoothies! They are such an easy way to get a load of your five a day in one go. I know they can be high in sugar though, so for this one I use ice and oat milk to try and combat that a little and make it super creamy! I make in my Nutri bullet (definitely one of the best presents Ian has got me!) but you could make in any blender that has enough power.
- one medium banana
- half a can of tinned fruit, I use either peaches or pineapple
- half a cup of ice
- one medium peeled carrot (I guess you can use with the skin if you want and just wash it, but I prefer to peel)
- about a quarter cup of orange juice
- about a quarter cup of oat milk
Optional: any superfood powders you want to add. I don't, because I don't have any at the moment!
Put all the ingredients in together - I literally put them in my Nutri bullet in that order so the harder ingredients are nearest the blade. I don't know if you have to do that, it just makes sense to me and it has worked overtime so far so I keep doing it - also it looks pretty!
Then just blend! It usually only takes about 2 minutes when I do it. Doesn't matter if you do it for longer, but I have found that if you blend for too long it starts to lose the thickness.
Then you have a smoothie! My Nutri bullet comes with various cups that you use for blending and can then put a lid on so I just drink it straight out of that. Note, this is quite a large smoothie, so you could share it if you wanted (or just half the ingredient amounts). I am just really hungry in the morning so I have it all with my breakfast!
So easy and so yummy!
