Try Something New Thursday - Nutribullet

So for try something new Thursday this week the mumster wanted to let you know that she splurged last week and bought a Nutribullet 900.  It had finally dropped down at the store and was under 1/2 the usual price, so she thought now was the time to jump on the juicing bandwagon.  Also she had bought a pineapple last week for $2 so it seemed the perfect reason to juice it up!!  She is trying to get some more balance in her life, and eat more fruit and vegetables so this seemed a good way to keep that going.

So straight out of the box it was pretty easy to use, and mum has eaten a lot more fruit in the past week.  She is not quite ready for the green juices, adding the spinach or kale, she might leave that for closer to summer.  Now she is quite happy to use banana/strawberries/pineapple and a bit of water.  A good way to get fresh stuff in, when she would often struggle to eat the fresh fruit she finds it much easier to drink.  The bonus is that there is much less waste, as any leftover fruit she just freezes to use later in other drinks.  The cup and blade are also pretty easy to clean and the unit doesn't take up much space, so she is happy to recommend it to all of our friends considering buying one.

The irony is though - that after a week of fresh fruit juices she has got a rotten old cold, but she knows that that comes from working at a hospital with lots of germs.  She is resting up though and having lots of fluids and filling up lots of tissues.


  1. I must say Poppy!x I've often thought of getting
    one of those, never seemed to get round to it,
    think they are quite dear! Maybe l'll look out for
    one half price!
    I was just thinking, you could even make Lolly~Pops!
    Once you've liquidised, you could put it into Lolly
    moulds and into the deep freeze! Walla! I think! :).

    Ah! Poor Mum...Is she drinking out of 'damp' glasses,
    as my Dad used to say, hope she's better soon, and,
    yes, plenty of rest!

  2. Poppy, dear, perhaps your mum will juice a bit of kale and carrot to top your Feast? Hope she feels well again soon! (Please remind her to discard her toothbrush after coping with a cold.)

  3. My human got a Nutribullet for her boyfriend for his birthday a couple of years ago and he uses it daily. I hope your human is better soon.
