If you were lucky enough to get a NutriBullet for Christmas, or if you've treated yourself to one, you'll be enjoying the health benefits this little kitchen gadget provides. It's neither a blender, nor a juicer - instead, it extracts goodness from fruits, vegetables and other ingredients by breaking them down into their most nutritious state, so they're easier for your body to absorb. You don't make smoothies with a NutriBullet, you make 'Supercharged SuperFood NutriBlasts' - according to their website! But you can also make shakes, soups, salad dressings, sauces and more - in fact, the list is endless! We've gathered together 89 of the best NutriBullet recipes from across the web for you to try out; let us know your favourites!
