Hi, brand new to Nutribullet.
Made my first smoothie this morning. Used spring greens and kale for about half of the tall cup, blackberries, 1/2 of a frozen banana and 1/4 of a navel orange. Two questions: I read that you should throw in the orange peel with the orange - the taste was overwhelmingly bitter from the peel (did I misunderstand?); and 2nd question - the seeds from the blackberries were very annoying. If I had run it longer, would the Nutribullet pulverize them? If not, would strawberry seeds be similar?
All this being said, it was quite tasty and very filling. In fact, I just finished the last 1/3rd of it for a late night snack.
Using the citrus peel is up to you. There are some healthful properties in the peel, however I find them too bitter. My suggestion would be to just use some of the zest. Here is a chart to show how to prep almost any ingredient you wish:
And regarding the seeds, unfortunately raspberry and blackberry seeds are a little bit too small to pulverize :( Strawberry seeds do just fine as do flax. Sometimes you can drink a little from the top, then put the blade back on and Blast for a bit longer which reduces the amount of remaining seeds. It helps when there is more room for the liquid to move within the cup.
