Tried my Nutribullet RX today for the first time. I used spinach, blueberries, banana, a few grapes, chia seeds, flax seeds, coconut water & a touch of honey. It tasted yucky! And the seeds didn't blast very well, it was grainy. Hoping I get better with this and find some flavors I can live with. Disappointed on my first day, but I will keep trying!
I would suggest ground up seeds and try 2 drops of liquid stevia to sweeten it up.
This is very similar to the recipe I drink at lunch. I blend 1 banana, 1/4 cup frozen bluberries, 1/2 cup apple juice, about 1 handful of spinach (sometimes kale, sometimes frozen), 1 tbsp flax seeds (and I add some rhodiola rosea extract).... I love the taste. But you could try replacing the milk with juice and seeing how that tastes. You could also buy some Goji juice or whatever juice you like to add flavor if you want.
I read someplace that soaking the chia seeds (1 tbsp) in a glass of water softens them up and they mix better. It works, but looks so unappetizing (I'm in Costa Rica and they look like some of the bugs I find around here). Also, on a better note, I also find that "blasting" for a longer time dissolves them completely. I also put in 2 packs of the Stevia and also a heaping tbsp. of sugar free powdered chocolate in every shake.
You might try replacing the grapes with Strawberries. Also, if you get some Cacao nibs or powder (tbsp), it will add a chocolate taste.
