Can you grind coffee beans into a NutriBlast?  I know we should all probably avoid caffeine, but I need it!

hmm..good question.. Usually you brew the coffee and use that as the liquid, or grind the coffee separately using the milling blade. I'd be interested in knowing what other people do!
I can't contribute much either being as I am not a coffee consumer. But from the coffee recipes I've seen, they usually add the already brewed coffee or instant coffee grounds/packets. I'm not a huge fan of anything "instant" because usually that means processed and/or contains additives or fillers so I'd say forgo the latter. If you are planning to experiment with quality beans, I'd suggest first using the milling blade to grind it into a superfine powder before adding to your NutriBlast. I'm sure a little goes a long way (since it is now in compact powder form) so be mindful of how much you are using for each Blast. Let us know how it turns out if you experiment.
Yes you can, use the milling blade....
I also know some people who toss it right in - whole bean form and say it works quite nicely.
I prefer my coffee by itself, am i allowed to consume my morning joe if i'm doing the six week program? and while on the coffee subject how bad is "fat free" half and half for me?

Anything fat free is usually filled with some type of sugar and salt to make up for the taste loss. In addition, dairy is inflammatory and hard for some people to digest. I'd recommend against it. We recommend not having coffee during the Transformation Plan, however we know it is hard to give it up cold turkey. Slowly wean yourself off and if you need a substitute, try some green tea.
Does anyone have a recipe for a frozen latte using your nutribullit? I'm thinking a small amount of strong brewed coffee,almond milk, cacao powder, cherries, ice, etc. Any thoughts?
