  1. At the top your recipes say one serving at the bottom they say two, which is it?

    • The recipes are generally based on one large cup. This particular one says one serving at the top and one large cup for the size. If you see any that says two, it is because some people split the recipes into 2 small cups. But I ask people when they submit recipes to aim to calculate things based on the large Nutribullet cup size.

  2. Can I eat recipe 3 times a day to replace meals?

    • It is not recommended to replace all meals with just fruit smoothies, such as just this one recipe. This is for a couple of reasons. First, the calorie intake would likely be so low for the day that you would either be hungry and sluggish all day or you would lose weight too quickly, which tends to lead to rebound weight gain. Second, your diet could end up lacking in protein and other nutrients. You could perhaps do mix of smoothies, some of which incorporate higher protein and vegetables, and make sure that you are getting enough calories. Or, I suggest replacing one or two meals with smoothies and then eating a healthy light dinner that incorporates a balance of protein, vegetables, and carbohydrates/fiber.

      • Carleen,

        What about replacing just one smoothie a day as a meal replacement. Example for breakfast. Then a healthy lunch and dinner?

        • Absolutely! In fact that is what I do. I have a smoothie for breakfast (usually one with some extra protein in it to help keep me full) and then I eat a regular healthy lunch and dinner.

  3. Hi, I’m completely new to this, I just order my Nutribullet.

    What is the reason to use that type of milk? Is purely for flavour? I would prefer to use regular semi skimmed as it’s much easier to find in supermarkets here!

    I plan having this recipe for breakfast and/or pre-post exercise drink.

    • The almond milk is in the recipe for flavor and added protein. It can be switched out with regular milk just fine. If doing that for breakfast or post exercise, I recommend adding a bit of greek yogurt or a handful of raw almonds (or both) to increase the protein a bit.

  4. The drink set into a solid after ten minutes…

    • That is highly unusual. I suggest blending longer and perhaps try adding more liquid. Make sure you have liquid to the fill line.
