We kickstarted a new healthy lifestyle with the NutriBullet

What they say it does
The NutriBullet’s secret is its super high powered motor, with bullet cyclonic action which breaks down and pulverizes the stems, seeds and skins of fruit and vegetables, unlocking the unused value and nutrients that usually get left behind.
What our tester said
The NutriBullet looks like a normal blender, and having had a juicer before that was an absolute pain to wash up I was skeptical to start with. But after the first use I was impressed.
I made a smoothie with an apple, orange, pineapple, banana and a handful of spinach. The NutriBullet made short work of all the fruit, even the fibrous pineapple and left me with a smooth, sweet smoothie with all the fibre of the fruit and veg still there.
The best thing for me was how easy it is to clean. You can just swish it in soapy water and it’s done. There’s no fiddly mesh to clean, just the blades and a jug.
The NutriBullet also comes with some handy travel mugs so you can make a smoothie in the morning and take it with you wherever you’re going, ideal if you’re following one of the healthy juice plans in the booklet that comes with it. They also keep quite well in the fridge, if you can’t manage to drink the whole thing in one sitting.
I am really impressed with the NutriBullet, it makes getting your five a day simple and it has encouraged me to try vegetables that I wouldn’t usually because I knew I could hide the bitter taste with some lovely fruit.
It’s pricy, but it’s worth it. Unlike a standard juicer it can be used for blitzing up soups and sauces, so it takes the place of both a blender and a juicer, which means more room in the kitchen.
