“Ice Cream” for One

91 degrees today.  Humid.  Hot.  Sweaty.  Need to cool off.  Started out the day with a green smoothie and ended the day with delicious almond butter “ice cream”.  The Nutribullet comes to the rescue again.  I can’t believe this delicious treat consists of only 3 wonderful ingredients.  So easy and very satisfying after tonight’s gym class.

Almond Butter “Ice Cream”

Serves 1

  • 1 banana, cut into 1″ pieces, frozen
  • 1 tablespoon, almond butter (or any nut butter of your choice)
  • 2 oz. almond milk


  1. Place all ingredients into Nutribullet.  Blend until you achieve a smooth, creamy consistency.
  2. Enjoy!  I suppose you can place in an airtight container and freeze for a later date, but why wouldn’t you want to consume ALL OF THIS right now?!



An Apple a Day…

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.  Well, how about an apple, spinach, strawberries, blueberries, cherries, raspberries, pomegranate seeds, ginger, and chia seeds?  That’s right – this cup of goodness holds so many nutrients and antioxidants.  A perfect way to cool down on this beautiful summer day.

Antioxidant Smoothie

Serves 1

  • 1 gala apple, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, sliced
  • 1/4 lime, juiced
  • 4 oz. frozen berry mix (I used Target’s antioxidant blend)
  • 1 handful of baby spinach
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  1. Add all ingredients into the Nutribullet cup.  Add 4 oz. of water.
  2. Blend until you reach a smooth consistency.
  3. Enjoy while relaxing in the sun! 🙂

The Best $80 I’ve Ever Spent

We bought the NutriBullet a few weeks ago.  Ah-mazing.  It is one of my all time favorite kitchen gadgets thus far.  It comes with a recipe book, which is nice for ideas, but you can pretty much add anything you’d like!  Here’s a recipe for one of my power smoothies that I have in the morning to get me going!  So easy to make.  The NutriBullet also blends everything in about 30 seconds or less.  I couldn’t believe what I was seeing when I first used it.

It usually goes for $99.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond, but use your 20% coupon and you’re golden ($80 before tax).  I already bought one to give to my mom for Mother’s Day!

Green Smoothie


  • 2 handfuls of organic baby spinach
  • 1 organic apple, cut into 2″ pieces

  • 1/4 of Goji berries
  • 1/2 cup of water
  1. Place all ingredients into Nutribullet cup.
  2. Blend.
  3. Enjoy.IMG_1358
