I use all veggies in my nutri bullet. I stay away from fruit at all times, is this ok?
Fruit provides many health benefits. About 2 cups of fruit is recommended each day. A cup of fruit is equal to 1 small apple, 8 large strawberries, 1 large peach, and 1 cup of grapes.

One of the best cooking book i am using daily it is the best Easiest Fat Loss Cookbook for breakfast, lunch and dinner , it has 250 Fat Torching Recipes To Banish the Boring Diet And Burn Fat Faster! I highly recommended to all ( http://www.healthandrich.com/cooke ) Have a great day

Can any out there come up with a sweet and spicy recipe for weight loss, using jalapenos and pepperoncini's?

I couldn't find any Spinach at the store. So I'm hoping it still works the same.Mine came out looking like a V8.

I have been making this for a while and it is too thick to drink so I have been putting it through the strainer. If I had extra water it all leaks into the machine. Can anyone make a suggestion.

I ommited the carrots (was out of carrots), put 2 smaller tomatoes and added a baby cuke, a small garlic clove and a pinch of cayenne... gooooooood! You don't want V-8 anymore after that :)

Question - this recipe is described as spicy, but there are no spicy ingredients. Was there an omission? Guess I'll throw in some jalapeño until I hear back...
alguien sabe cuantos se toman en el dia uno o dos si es solo uno es en la tarde o en la manana gracias si alguien me informa......

No one answered. It's a month later but fresh is best although I've kept my juices or smoothies tightly sealed in a glass jar for no more than 3 days.

The picture of this blast is clearly green. I add two tomatoes because I love them. Sometimes I used chopped green onions and sometimes the purple onions as shown in the picture above. I also like the pinch of sea salt and the peppercorns is a great idea too. I live in Omaha and we can even buy decent tomatoes on the vine at the grocery store in January. If that's a problem try really ripe Roma tomatoes, they are pretty darn good year round. I love this website because it keeps me motivated and like the ideas of others too. Thanks for all the comments. And bell peppers come in 4 colors so that will help for color also. There is nutritional information below the picture above.
My Pro 900 arrived today and I am so stoked to use this. I have been using a Bela for the last 2 weeks which was a great starter. Time for the big guns...;) My question is, what does .. 1 ½ To Max Line Water mean
I know first hand that if the recipe calls for 1/4 lime or lemon you should most likely juice it yuk. This is from trial and error.

What can I use instead of celery?
Is the onion a key ingredient? I hate onions

I have lost over 20 lbs.....but it is not all due to nutribullet....but using nutribullet helped alot.....it is combination of things.....such as watching what you put in mouth....avoiding carbs....rice, bread, pasta....being active......and most important is not to set too high goals.....dont over restrict your calorie count....be reasonable....reward your self.....if you stay persistent you will eventually loose weight......

Just curious - when it says "¼ Limes", is it asking for the entire piece - peal and all - or just the juice ?

The Lemon Kale recipe talks about how the rind will make the drink bitter, so I'm going to say these recipes mean the juice of 1/4 lime/lemon. https://www.nutriliving.com/recipes/lemon-kale-blast

I only used 1/4. I guess I didn't let it extract long enough. I am drinking bits of peelings...

The Lemon Kale recipe talks about gating the peel if you're going to add some to the drink. It also says how the rind will make the drink bitter, so I'm going to say these recipes mean the juice of 1/4 lime/lemon. https://www.nutriliving.com/recipes/lemon-kale-blast

Too lose the WIEGHT substitute a nutriblast for the 2 of your meals you eat a day and only eat 1 snack a day that is less than a 100 calories. Do not eat after 7 pm. Doing this I lose 22lbs in 30days

The first time i did this it did not taste so good. the second time i reduced the onion a bit and added some sea salt to taste and now it is a bit more tolerable. Still not my favorite.

The recipes here and in the books have no calorie, carbs or nutritional facts. Why?

Didn't mind the green look , thought it was going to be more red. Added a pinch of sea salt. Taste more like a v8. Would make it again.

Hi. I loved this recipe! In saying that I do love raw veggie drinks and kinda get excited about how much nutrition Im getting from a smoothie. I would never just sit down and eat all these ingredients on their own but I can devour a smoothie in no time and ta da! Healthy meal accomplished! Also, i substituted red kale for the spinach and used a few tablespoons of spicy organic tomato pasta sauce insted of the tomato! Delish!

If you Google each of the ingredients you'll find all the nutritional value and calories . Google is my best friend.

Red + green = brown. I put a bit of fresh garlic in mine…and a bit of fresh peppercorns.

I prefer savory over sweet, so I liked this one. Added some Sriracha sauce for more spice!

This has become my new favorite blast. I add a tsp. of minced garlic, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. of pepper and celery seed. After extracting, I put it in a saucepan and gently bring it to a simmer for a few minutes. I add a tbsp. of parmesan after removing it from the heat. It makes a great soup.

When I made this one I made it more like a Virgin Mary. Put the spices you like in that drink and away you go. Careful with the Tabasco can get spicy

Mine turned out green too! It is nasty but, I am trying to force it down telling myself I can do it because I want the results and don't want to waste the ingredients. Won't make it again though. I was so looking forward to a good tomato flavored drink and it is not.
I find that if you put in like color fruits and veggies, the color will remain vibrant. Afterall, these blasts need to appeal to all of our senses, for us to continue to drink them.
Imma try it and see how it taste.......but ya guys have to remember that its a raw drink.....nothing but veggies so it might taste nasty to the people who anit use to drinking nothing but raw veggies
HORRIBLE! This one is NOT worth trying again. A true disappointment.

I don't think the photos used are actual images of the finished drink, per ingredients. Mine turned green.
This was delicious. Mine turned out green but still very good.
I thought it was so nasty! I couldnt even finish my glass. Mine also turned out green. I thought I did something wrong.

The cilantro and spinach probably made it green. I made it and it did taste like store bought veggie juice, though!
