The Nutribullet is not just a new must have gadget for dieters, it is also a seriously handy kitchen sidekick for any vegan.
David Wolfe, a raw food vegan known for his appearances in documentaries such as Food Matters, Hungry for Change and Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 days, is the official celebrity spokesman for the Nutribullet. Whatever your views on the raw vegan diet most vegans can get on board with why Wolfe and other health buffs endorse the product. The Nutribullet is sold on the premise that it is superior to juicers as it doesn’t remove the fibre packed pulp and its high powered blade means it is more effective than regular blenders at breaking down any chunks. So essentially it makes it easy to cram in a sh** tonne of plants into your diet.
The rush of omnivores trying this new diet gadget are excitedly pulverizing heaps of spinach, berries and kale as if they have discovered the Holy Grail. Meanwhile the vegan community are watching on as yet another nutrition makes that revolutionary claim… plants are really bloody good for you!
The gadget is pretty handy for soups and homemade sauces and helped me make some near perfect homous. But this quick breakfast smoothie which requires almost no effort is what makes it my go-to kitchen gadget.

1 handful of frozen raspberries (frozen tend to be easy to find and considerably cheaper)
