Kale Carrot Banana Berry Blast

Started the morning off right with a NutriBlast from┬ámy NutriBullet. We’ll call this one the Kale Carrot Banana Berry Blast with Red Macca.

From the bottom up, I filled my large NutriBullet cup with:

  • 1 leaf organic kale
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 carrot
  • about a handful of raspberries
  • about a handful of frozen blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon red macca powder

As with every NutriBlast, these fruits and veggies get covered up with water and then pulverized into a nutritious smoothie that looks like this:

The more frozen fruit you can add to a blast, the better. I’m used to semi-warm, room temperature blasts made with filtered (but not chilled) tap water. Cold water helps, but when I started using frozen bananas a while ago, and it went from room temp to tasty. This week I’ve been adding frozen blueberries too, and the frozen fruit makes a huge difference.

It was a delicious, nutrient-packed start to the day, especially when paired with scrambled eggs and bacon:

Pear Lime Ginger Tonic

My smoothies are always the result of whatever fruit I have, joined by any accompaniments that may or may not complement the fruit. This morning, I think the result was pretty tasty. Not sure if these approximations will get the same result, but it went something like this:

1 tray ice cubes
1/4 cup pear juice
1/2 pear, sliced
1/2 cup ginger ale
2 shots gin (but I like it strong)
6 drops lime juice

Pour all in blender and, obviously, blend. Garnish with lime wedge.

Great for a Saturday breakfast when the January sun is shining. And I highly recommend serving in a mimosa glass, which I own a set of thanks to my sis.

Prost!
