Spotlight On: the Nutribullet

I love this little guy. $69.99 for a combination blender and food processor with only two pieces to wash!

Now, a small disclaimer: as great as this guy is, it’s not the best for making pesto. For those not familiar, the final step in making pesto is streaming oil into the basil mixture as it is running. You can do that with a food processor; if you’re a food aficionado like me it’s great to have all the tools! 🙂

I usually use my nutribullet to make smoothies, pictured above. My go to recipe is a fresh banana, a combination of frozen fruit, almond milk and honey. This particular smoothie was made with frozen raspberries, blueberries, mango and pineapple. The convenience of the nutribullet plus the affordability of buying store brand frozen fruit and bananas means I have at least 2 smoothies every week! 

Besides smoothies, I’ll grab the nutribullet to blend up sauces and dressings as well. Like pumpkin vinaigrette or homemade enchilada sauce, or this delicious cilantro garlic sauce! Which goes great with chicken, steak, shrimp, or any Mexican themed dish! Like on tacos 😛

Cilantro Garlic Sauce

2 smashed garlic cloves
1 c. chopped cilantro
2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. olive oil
2 T. fresh lemon juice (1 lemon)
1/8 tsp. cayenne 

And that’s it! Definitely worth the price if you like to cook/make food from scratch.
