Earlier this year I bought a MagicBullit and I love it. Ever since seeing a demonstration I’ve wanted one. I chose it because it came with 6 ‘carry with you’ cups with lids. So, no looking for a glass or extra washing up. You can also make a soup and heat it in a micro at work with the clever steamer cap. Another way to avoid sugar and sweetener filled energy/ protein bars when you don’t fancy a packed lunch.

My main nutritional weakness is not eating enough green vegetables. I buy them, but get sick of simple steamed cruciate veggies, I prefer a good leafy salad with shredded beets, but it doesn’t fill me up!

With my new goal of reducing processed sugars, I wanted to do that by drinking a daily green smoothie. And I also wanted to upgrade my big, noisy blender. So, I bit the bullet (pun intended) and searched Amazon for a Bullitt mixer, and it’s been great. It’s so easy to clean, you can’t make too much so no worries about gaining weight – which many people do when they turn a healthy green smoothie into a pudding by adding much fruit.

I’ve been keeping my recipes fairly simple and very low sugar. Here is the recipe I’ve been using most.

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 serving Vanilla Low Carb protein powder
2 cups chard/kale/spinach mix (or sometimes just spinach)
1/2 avocado
2-4 ice cubes to thicken/chill

This green smoothie is delicious and keeps me energised all day.

You can get bigger Bullits – but the temptation is to increase your portion size, or try to save it (these mixes must be enjoyed immediately) otherwise you will waste the leftovers!

Enjoy.
