Super Food Smoothie

A Super Food Cocktail That Is Addicting

Have you ever wondered if there is a healthy food that makes you feel good without a lot of calories? A healthy food concoction that you can drink several times a day? Something you would even crave on a daily basis.  It is similar to a smoothie or should I say Froothie (that’s my version of a super Food Cocktail). Which I explain in a while.

A smoothie is around for a while and I have always enjoyed them tremendously. I also used to use a juicer on a regular basis until I got tired of throwing all the good pulp away. On the other hand my experience using a blender to “juice” up vegetables and fruit didn’t always worked out, because it wasn’t smooth enough.

However, I found a machine that is able to give you the best of both; a blender and a Juicer. How can this work you might ask. To be honest I don’t really know. I’m talking about the NutriBullet. You might have heard about it. The NutriBullet is a so-called blender of its own class. Actually the inventor of the nutribullet call it the extractor, simply because the blender is so powerful, it does the same job like a juicer only to keep the pulp in the drink. I only have this machine for about 2 weeks now and don’t want to miss it one day. It comes with a complete recipe book so you never run out of ideas.

The Nutribullet makes any type of smoothie in seconds. Best of all it takes not even a minute to clean it. I have about three blenders at home which I hardly use for that only reason that it takes too long to clean and they are not powerful enough to do the job. That said there is one excellent mixer out there, which I think is the king of all mixers: The Vitamix 1782 TurboBlend, 2 Speed. No other blender comes even close in performance except the Nutribullet. I have used the Vitamix on my job for many years, and it never broke once, but it cost easily three times as much as the Nutribullet. In the same token the Vitamix is much bigger, which has the advantage of making two or three smoothies at the same time. The Vitamix is also able to blend hot food like soups and sauces and comes with its own recipe book, too.

Nutribullet Versus The Vitamix – Which is better?

By the way I’m not getting paid to write about either blender, I just like both. However, I placed a link for you to take a look at both machines so you can look up the details. In the event you decide to buy the Nutri Bullet or the Vitamix  through one of my links I would earn a tiny commission, which would make me happy and you even happier. I promise 🙂 If you have any previous experience with either one I would love to hear your opinion.

The recipe for this super food cocktail is one that I have used for many months now, but can really enjoy it since I have the Nutri-bullet. Of course you can make this healthy cocktail in any blender, you might just have some small bits and pieces in it.

 Enjoy Your Food and Eat Slowly…

There is one fundamental reason this super food cocktail has so many health benefits for us. Because it is food that was made drinkable, so we don’t need much chewing. We humans don’t like to chew. (It’s a fact for most of us) We are always in a hurry. Although there is a reason why we should chew thoroughly – and that is a better digestion with better nutrition absorption. This super food cocktail enables a perfect digestion and since you have a variety of fruit, vegetables and grains you’ll receive a super dose of vitamins, minerals and omega 3 fats.

I make a drink like this every morning for my family. Actually I prepare it the night before. I put all ingredients in the blender cup, cover it and in the morning I just blend it. It’s surprisingly luscious, delightful as it is addicting.

For those of us who have allergies to grains, soy or lactose I recommend to just leave these ingredients out and replace them with other fruit and vegetables.

Notes
For all non vegetarian you can add 1/3 cup of organic vanilla yogurt to this super food cocktail. However, I guess tofu would work great too just to add more protein to the shake. The organic baby greens like spinach, kale and Swiss chard are offered in some supermarkets. Some call it the super greens. If you can’t find this mixture of lettuces than baby spinach is just fine.
