23 Nutribullet Recipes: Blitz Up A Real Good Time With These

Only 1 in 10 adults is eating enough fruits and vegetables. Perhaps we’d all be better about getting our 5-a-day if our greens came blitzed into a silky puree, poured into a tall glass and topped with a straw. 

To that end, here are 23 nutribullet recipes intended to help you get your shake (and smoothie and slush and butter and soup) on. 

The Nutribullet has developed something of a cult-following amongst fitness-fiends — you’ll often find them swapping juice recipes whilst pontificating about the many merits of 4 AM runs and food replacement pills. 

But a kitchen gadget this handy is way, way too good to be passed off merely as the resort of the insultingly-fit. 

At Cooking Chew, we maintain that chewing (ha!) remains the greatest barrier to getting our fruits and vegetables —
see, the Nutribullet isn’t just for health-nuts — it’s for the lazy

Those among us that firmly believe those extra-large McDonald’s fries counted towards our vegetable intake and for whom green juice means mint margarita; that’s whom this neat little blender is really for. 

From mango lemonade to iced-coffee and even a creamy cauliflower soup (don’t knock #21 till you’ve tried it) here’s 23 recipes that’ll help you put your Nutribullet through its paces! 

You might not think a fistful of kale would make for the best possible start to your day — but you’d be wrong. 

Better to admit it and whiz up a quick, sweet glass of this delicious smoothie pronto then cling obstinately to your bacon and eggs (those will still be here tomorrow, we promise).

Given the number of air miles an avocado’s likely had to travel in order to arrive at your grocery store, this smoothie is probably the closest you’re getting to an exotic vacation this year. 

Sorry.

Like a nutritive hand grenade lobbed from afar, this tart-sweet breakfast smoothie is just the thing for when you need a little lift in the morning. 

We’re no health enthusiasts, so here’s a little tip — this is vastly improved by the addition of some strawberry ice-cream (though it’s plenty good without, of course).

The raspberry is our favorite fuzzy fruit by far (sorry, peaches) and this fun, zingy ice-lolly-masquerading-as-a-smoothie has everything going for it. 

It’s great at, well, anytime of day but we like to rustle it up just before our morning walk — because if we’re lacing our shoes and braving the trails at 9AM, you can be certain there was bribery involved. 

 A mood-boosting smoothie? What’s boost-y about it, you might be wondering? 

That’d be the bananas — they contain lots of tryptophan, an amino acid that our bodies convert to serotonin — the happy chemical. 

And there you have it: a little science with your morning smoothie. 

Bottoms up!

If, come morning, the thought of a big bowl of oatmeal prompts tears and whining but you’d still like to reap the benefits mentioned on the Quaker Oats box — might we then suggest pulverizing said oats into oblivion with peanut butter, honey, bananas and spinach and slurping them up through a straw? 

It works for us.

Wondering what to make with a Nutribullet that isn’t a smoothie? 

Well, pancakes, of course. 

Why we don’t bust these out at lunch and dinner time, too, instead of just breakfast is a mystery to us but perhaps that’ll change given that we now know we can throw together a batch in the blender.

Hold on a minute — we’ve just received word from Future Us — it turns out we ate these every day for a week straight and now we’re sick of them. How very predictable.

Look, we’re never giving our takeout coffee up but this sweet, full-bodied brew gives us slightly more incentive not to spend $20 every time we pass by a Starbucks

Have you ever made your almond butter? If not, you’re missing out and probably wincing at your grocery store receipt every week. 

Making your own nut-butters isn’t just a whiz; it’s immensely satisfying since you know exactly what’s going in there and far, far cheaper than anything off the shelf! 

Cooking Chew tip: lacing your favorite brownie batter with a little almond butter makes the most richly indulgent brownies you’ll ever have.

There’s a direct correlation between how cold it is and how difficult our mornings are. As the chill settles in, we find ourselves less and less able to contend with the world outside our duvet — that’s when this bright, earthy smoothie really comes in handy. 

The addition of zingy ginger is a welcome one; a few sips will have us bounding out of bed and bouncing off the walls in no time.

It seems silly to pay for a jar of the store-bought stuff when making your own peanut butter is so very easy — and good. 

Slap this on some toast or eat it right out of its container with generous lashings of honey; it’s impossible to go wrong.

 We love Nutella — but we’re less fond of the palm oil and gratuitous, whopping amounts of sugar — that’s why we’re taking matters into our own hands. 

All you’ll need are some hazelnuts (dry roasted, please) and chocolate chips (the best you can find) and you’ve got your very own luscious, guilt-free Not-Ella. 

Get it? Not-Ella? Because it’s not Nutella? We’ll show ourselves out.

Vanquish your winter-time woes with this subtle, pleasant tomato soup. 

Fry up some pancetta, arrange for chili-toast and you’ve got yourself the makings of a sumptuous feast-for-one. 

Serve with a smattering of hand-torn basil leaves and a generous drizzle of olive oil.

If you’ve got a garden (or even a scraggly herb patch frequented only by the cat) chances are there’s got to be some mint hiding in there somewhere. 

Root it out and whiz it up with some blueberries, yogurt, almonds and a banana — et voila. 

A fresh, zingy smoothie that’s sure to put a smile on your face (and give you a blue smoothie-stache). 

This is more ice-cream than smoothie and accordingly, we’re not going to sell you on it overmuch. 

If you like ice-cream, well, you’ll like this — if you don’t like ice-cream, uh, sorry? 

“But it hasn’t got greens in it!” You might be tempted to protest. 

If you’ve got a moral opposition to drinking smoothies without greens in them, know that this has avocado in it and that’ll just have to do. 

We admire your conviction but strongly advise against amending this recipe with anything remotely leafy.  

We’re not Dr.Pepper people, but we’ve got friends that are and they go positively gaga for this. 

According to them, it’s just like the ones you can get Sonic — but better since you can go on making however much you like (though presumably an actual doctor might advise against that last part). 

A cooling, summery drink that packs a riotously flavored tropical punch! 

Garnish with the best-looking sprigs of mint you can find and pour over crushed ice and sliced mangos to serve. 

Perfect for a picnic or summer-time fiesta on the porch. 

We’re ice-cream fanatics: there’s no two ways about it. And while we’re absurdly proud of our ice-cream machine and it holds a seat of honor in our kitchen — it can be an awful drag using the thing sometimes, especially if we’ve got places to be. 

It’s not every day you want to churn cream. 

Accordingly, we’re always on the hunt for the perfect quick recipe to help us live our best ice-cream lives without having to spend an hour or two in the kitchen. 

This one comes pretty close! It makes a stunning, delicately flavored soft-serve that comes together in a pinch.

In hindsight, it seems slightly obvious that you could use your Nutribullet to whip cream but we’d never considered it before this recipe! 

Makes a pint of airy, light whipped cream. There go the last of our strawberries. 

This wholesome, comforting soup benefits greatly from a teaspoon of perky rose harissa or your favorite savory chili sauce — it needs a little enlivening to be proper cracking

Garnish with a handful of garlicky croutons to serve.

This seductive sorbet is absolutely the best thing you can do with that carton of strawberries you’ve got softening in the back of your fridge — and the absolute best thing you can do to kick off a lovely springtime garden party. 

Our favorite Nutribullet recipe by far!

There’s not much the perfect pesto can’t do — brighten up a chicken sandwich, lend to some sparkle to an otherwise boring plate of linguine, enliven the humble roast potato (yes, really) and, of course, end up all over our clothes every time we blend up a new batch. 

Ah, well.  No good thing comes easy.

The bottom line

And that concludes our roundup of the best Nutribullet recipe ideas out there! 

All this blending has left our upper arms feeling a little sore — perhaps there’s a reason the Nutribullet is so beloved by fitness-fiends — it’s because they’ve got muscles big enough to pump the motor on the damn thing all day. 

Not that we’re complaining; we’re willing to put up with a little soreness in exchange for what are probably the easiest recipes we’ve ever featured on the blog. 

Say what you want to about the Nutribullet (and we’ve heard it all, promise) it’s neat, it’s fast and it does exactly what it says it will on the box. 

How true is that nowadays?
