So someone's decided to drop hints about your unhealthy lifestyle, and has got you a Nutribullet for Christmas.
Excellent! This changes everything, and the new, clean you starts RIGHT NOW. Or tomorrow at least.
But wait... What do you even put in a Nutribullet?
No need to panic, there are literally hundreds of foods you can throw into this nifty gadget that will literally pulverise anything.
1. The Health Kick
Aptly named the healthiest smoothie ever, this mixture combines kale, berries of your choice (raspberries being used here), Greek yogurt, banana, lemon, ice and water.
A great way to cleanse the palate before the main course.
2. The Fitness Fanatic
This has everything and anything chucked in and will be sure to keep your body up to speed with your mind.
This beauty is made up of: baby carrots, beetroot, berries, pineapple, banana, Swiss chard, kale/cabbage (or collard greens to Yanks), protein milk, chia seeds, organic golden flax seeds, pumpkin and sesame seeds, almonds, cashews, quinoa, orange juice or coconut water, a dash of supplements, non-fat yogurt and local organic honey to sweeten.
Be sure to shake well!
3. The Green Smoothie
Easier than you'd think.
Just blueberries, bananas, watermelon, almonds and kale. That's it. Enjoy, you healthy minx, you.
4. For The Sweet Tooth
In this one there is spinach, apple, blueberry, strawberry and pineapple – a delicious mix of sweet tastes and a healthy dose of greens. What's not to love?
5. The Simple One
This is the one for all of you trying to keep it real - with ingredients that you genuinely will have at home.
In this there is half a cup of orange juice, one cup of non fat plain yogurt, one banana and six frozen strawberries. Delicious, nutritious and most importantly – easy enough to roll out of bed and put together.
6. Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie
A whopper drink to knock back which will keep you going all day, and will sort you out after a heavy one on the sauce.
Another simple one with ingredients that you could very easily have at home already. In this there are bananas, strawberries, blueberries and oats. Easy, peasy, Nutribleezy.
7. The Exotic One
Up in here we have spinach leaves, pinapple, mango, peach, papaya, honey, flaxseed, almonds, brazil nuts, low fat peach yoghurt and ice to cool.
Waking up to this will make you feel like you're one of those posh families who go away for Christmas.
8. The Smoothie That Tastes Like Dessert
In this concoction are prunes and walnuts (soaked overnight in the fridge), ground chia & flax seeds, strawberries, bananas, an avocado, Greek yoghurt (flavoured or otherwise) and almond milk.
9. The Weight Loss Smoothie
Designed to drink throughout the day in between meals, with the primary sip being taken at breakfast.
Inside is cucumber, celery, green apple, lemon juice and coconut water – we're not sure about its 'weight loss' claims, but hey, mix and enjoy a guilt free brekkie.
10. The Matcha Breakfast Shake
Matcha is basically the cocaine of the health world and gives you a whopper kick that will keep you going throughout the day - necessary for the chef of the house.
In this little dreamy concoction is matcha green tea powder, rolled oats, macadamia nuts, peanut butter, honey, vanilla seeds, almond milk and coconut water.
11. The Tasty Protein Shake
This one is for those of you upset that the gym is closed on Christmas Day.
In this beauty there is water, blueberries, ice, walnuts, oats, half a banana, chia seeds and whey protein powder.
