The Ultimate Breakfast Smoothie

Yesterday was my dad’s 50th Birthday and my mum had the brilliant idea of getting him a Nutri Bullet. For those of you who don’t know, a Nutri Bullet is a little piece of heaven that happened to land in an aisle at Canadian Tire. But actually, Nutri Bullet is an offshoot of the Magic Bullet, which can whip anything into a delightfully smooth concoction. Rather than being oversized, clunky and expensive like most high powered blenders like the Vitamix, the Nutri Bullet is fast, effective, light weight and not ridiculously pricey. Since the Nutri Bullet has been in my house for less than 24 hours, I cannot give a long term review on the product, but so far I’m impressed. This morning I used it for my “Ultimate Breakfast Smoothie,” which took less than 30 seconds to become fully blended together, which is an improvement from what my clunky Krups was accomplishing. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Krups blender, but only for when I need to make smoothies for a few people or a soup… and then even still, it probably won’t get much attention once I get my hands on a Bamix Immersion Blender….

Raspberries and Oatmeal were meant to be!

As per usual, this morning was a struggle to get myself out of bed, but when I finally emerged, I had this Ultimate Breakfast Smoothie waiting for me. Okay, it wasn’t waiting for me, I had to make it, but it took barely anytime with the Nutri Bullet. I love putting rolled oats in my smoothies because they give a delicious nutty flavour and provide me with an alternative way to enjoy oats rather than through a granola mix or hot oatmeal. Try this smoothie with other seeds and grains, I encourage experimentation! Also, you can easily substitute the milk for alternatives like soy, almond or coconut milk.

While you’re making this tasty smoothie, have a listen to Dr. Dog! Great morning music to make you wake up!

P.S It’s super easy to make smoothies…
