Did you get a Nutribullet (or other blender for that matter) for Christmas or as a holiday gift? Or perhaps you purchased one for yourself or got one as a birthday present. The Nutribullet does seem to be a popular gift. In any event, you may be wondering what you can do with it beside making smoothies. Well, there are all sorts of uses for your Nutribullet! Here are some suggestions.
Ten Things You Can Do With Your Nutribullet or Blender
Almond Milk: You can make your own Almond Milk with a Nutribullet. Doing so is a great way to cut the extra sugar and calories down from the amounts that are seen in commercial formulas. Here is a Nutribullet Almond Milk recipe.
Almond or Nut Butters: You can also make nut butters with your Nutribullet. This is a good way to make smaller amounts of specialty butters and is also a way to control the ingredients so that you know that you are free of added sugars. To make nut butters, use 1 1/2 cup of raw nuts, 1 1/2 Tablespoons of olive oil, and a pinch of salt. Blend until creamy. You can add up to a Tablespoon of honey if you want to add sweetness.
Ice Cream: It isn’t quite the same as real ice cream, but it is close and a heck of a lot more healthier! Try making Nutribullet Ice Cream!
Soup: If you have the Nutribullet RX, you can make soup and also fully heat it in the Nutribullet. With the regular versions, you still can make blended soups and then heat the blended ingredients on the stove or in the microwave. Here is a Nutribullet Broccoli Soup recipe.
Salad Dressing: Instead of shaking your salad dressing ingredients, try blending them. This will better emulsify the ingredients so that they last longer without separating. I regularly use the Nutribullet for this type of blending. Watch the site for recipes, as I plan to put some up soon!
Hummus: Hummus is very easy to make and the Nutribullet is perfect for blending it smooth if you don’t have a food processor. Here is an easy Hummus recipe.
DIY Instant Oatmeal: You can premake your flavored instant oatmeal, which helps cut out extra sugars and preservatives. Learn how to make your own Nutribullet instant oatmeal.
Popsicles: This is fun. Blend up your favorite smoothie and then freeze it! You can buy your own Popsicle Molds, or use paper cups with sticks.
Spaghetti Sauce: If you like creamy smooth sauce, try mixing it up in the Nutribullet. If you have the Nutribullet RX, you can even heat it, just like you do with soup. I like to mix canned tomatoes, tomato paste, garlic, a touch of sugar and salt, a teaspoon of olive oil, and fresh basil for a quick and easy sauce. I just run it all on the RX soup cycle.
Smoothies: Of course you can also make smoothies! Browse our site for lots of recipes, or if you are looking to kcik start a diet, take a peek at our popular post of 10 smoothie recipes for weight loss.
