    What are some of your favorite NutriBullet concoctions? I'm looking for new ideas!

    Kale, apple, frozen mango, green grapes, flax seeds, almond or coconut milk.

    I've always been apprehensive about adding kale, but if MrsC recommends it--I'll give it a try!

    I always start with either spinach or kale--they both taste the same in a smoothie. I've been using kale more frequently because it lasts longer in my fridge than spinach does!

    Frozen margarita !! or apple martini with lost of ice lol.
    Other than the usual smoothies, I love making guacamole or hummus in my Nutribullet. Also when I make my Hungarian soups, we always add sour cream. I take out a little liquid, some of the veggies (already cooked) add sour cream and blend, then put back in the soup on the stove. Very easy.

    Did you know you grind coffee? I drink espresso, and now just buy coffee beans and use the blade that is made fro nuts. It take 20 seconds to have fresh espresso ground coffee. You can also make your own cashew / peanut / any kind of nut butter.

    I usually throw in spinach and a banana. Plus any fruit I have in the house. And ice cubes. It has to be cold.

    My friend uses the Nutribullet and and gets this frozen mix of kale and berries. It comes in a bag in the frozen fruit section. The berries sort of mask the taste of the kale.
    I don't have it but I just got a Ninja blender and it has a kind of smoothie attachment so I will be looking for recipes too. I have made bulletproof coffee and it came out really good.

    Yeah, my recipe isn't traditional since I use coconut oil but haven't tried the butter.

    Me too (coconut oil). I also put a bit of honey in it. In any case, you have to blend it. It turns a separated, gloopy, cup into a SMOOTH, creamy, frothy delight.

    I wasn't aware of what bulletproof coffee was, so thanks for the description! Is it frothy, like a latte? I might have to try this (although I'm a bit dubious haha).

    I just mixed kale into a smoothie and you can't taste it one bit!

    There are different versions (you can Google) but the gist of it is blending coffee w/high amounts of fat such as butter, cream, and coconut oil. There's the "original" recipe which I don't know exactly but you can find it online. For me, the high fat content keeps me full for hours. It is usually used in a high fat/low carb diet. I would not recommend it if you follow a high carb diet.

    The guy who created it is very specific; it is also part of a whole diet. In either case, it is too specific. With the coffee, you're supposed to put in a big hunk of (grassfed) unsalted butter in. Again, I do it my way. I put in a modest amount (for taste basically); I put in a small amount of honey (taste); I put in a big teaspoon of coconut oil (this tastes fine, but I do it for health benefits that I tend to attribute to coconut oil). I'm thinking about adding collagen to the mixture, since I hear it is tasteless, and I know collagen does a lot for health too.

    So mine is a loose version of bulletproof coffee. Same idea though--I basically want to pack my cup of coffee with health benefits. (I swear that Starbucks should offer some version of this. I'd go more often.)

    I read the info on the guy's website and it sounded interesting but I just can't put butter in my coffee!!
    A friend of mine does it and she uses the Kerry Gold grass fed butter.
