Ninja NutriBullet Makes Healthy Habits a Treat
Let’s face it. Eating healthy when you are an on-the-go family is a challenge. Add to that the fact that not every child—or adult—in your home likes kale. Who trudges home from work or school on a Monday night and screams, “I just got to have a plate of spinach and flax seeds!” Doesn’t happen at my house. As much as you may enjoy cooking, we all have our moments of weakness. As much as you may enjoy cooking, we all have our moments of weakness. Mornings are tough if you hit snooze. Evenings are even harder and everyone just wants to grab a bag of cookies.

The smoothies craze continues, but some of us may have held out believing that another appliance is just another form of food prep. And food prep is precisely the obstacle when we are at our most vulnerable.
This is where the Ninja NutriBullet comes in…
Welcome to the 3-minute smoothie
The NutriBullet NBR-12,despite the fancy name and acronym, is really the solution for all of us average-Joe families out there. We are pressed for time, the kids or a spouse are fussy eaters, but we all know we need to eat healthy, feel full afterwards,and not face a sink full of pots and pans every morning, noon, and night. It just isn’t realistic. This sleek looking Ninja product comes outfitted with three cups and a host of extras.
The elegance of this product, however, is that you can throw a banana, kale, seeds, apple chunks, a spoonful of yogurt or a bit of milk, and in seconds you have a smoothie. The taste of the kale, the fear of bits of seeds or stems—all that goes away. The 600-watt motor is more than enough provided you don’t over load the jar.
Literally, in a matter of moments, you can prepare a smoothie just like the ones at the mall, rinse the jar, and then produce another one. On a busy morning, in fewer than ten minutes, every man, woman, child is headed out the door with something good in their stomachs that will leave them feeling satisfied. No bowls and spoons, no greasy pans.
Infinite speed control with pulse
The technology inside the NutriBullet NBR-12 is its extractor blades. They make quick work of ice plus most any type of veggie or fruit in your favorite recipe. The blades break down and pulverize whole pieces and chunks as well as add-ins like chia seeds. Add just a little water, and you will never miss that glass of OJ in the morning with its unnecessary sugars.
Why is this important to the health changes you want for you and your family?
You’re creating “extract food.” Extracted food is almost like having predigested food. That sounds terrible, but all it means is that your body can easily absorb and make use of the nutrition inside that smoothie. We feel fuller, sooner, and we get energy out of the food quicker because our bodies are spending less time trying to break the food down.
It’s what’s inside that counts
This unit comes with the 600-watt base—more than enough power to blend what you’re putting into the three cups. Also included are the extractor blade, a milling blade, two re-sealable lids, a handled lip ring, one regular lip ring, plus a cookbook and a pocket guide.
The little cookbook—for those of us new to making smoothies—comes in handy. Yes, you can look up a million recipes online, but this one provides the portions of each ingredient so you don’t under- or overfill the cups. Not to worry, it all comes naturally after a couple of tries. It soon becomes more of a visual art form, than the scientific counting and measuring we all dread!

Just keep a few bags of frozen berries in the freezer, some fresh greens in the crisper, and simple plant proteins like chia or flax seeds in the cupboard. Get creative using bananas, honey, yogurt, and so on—because these add bursts of flavor that answer those sweet-tooth hunger pangs. Plus, everyone eventually wants some variety.
