Screen Shot 2016-08-21 at 5.54.29 PM

For all the sporty dads who are also interested in nutritious fuel and recovery post training, a NutriBullet is great gift idea! The NutriBullet is a quick and convenient way to whizz up whole foods to retain the maximum nutrient value of ingredients. And it does so in literally seconds!

Our recommendation – We absolutely love our NutriBullet and would highly recommend it! Unlike other appliances, it gets daily use in our household because it is so quick and easy to use. It is great to create nourishing smoothies, drinks and even baking mixes. We especially love how it copes so well with frozen fruit and has definitely eased our frustration with the slow and tedious process of making nicecreams with our old blender! Check out our Choc Smoothie Bowl with Raspberry Sauce recipe, one of our Nutribullet creations.
