Making Your NutriBlasts Taste Good


A lot of people ask me how to make NutriBlasts taste good. Well, it’s easy for me since I already enjoy plenty of fruits and vegetables. I recently made a transition from processed food to whole, natural foods and my taste buds have been delighted by the change.

Since there are farms nearby, there is plenty of fresh produce to sample. Generally, I stick to what I know and it takes a lot of the guesswork out of trying something new – after all, if you know how your ingredients taste, you’ll know how your Blast will taste. But I will say, a slight twist can change the taste completely.

A sprinkle of cacao powder can give a Blast an earthy sweetness that can make me forget all about those store-bought shakes, which also happen to be full of added preservatives. A ripe peach, mango, or pineapple can add a tropical touch to a Blast, reminiscent of a those sun-bathing afternoons on the sandy shore. I was not a fan of beets for a long time, but I admit, they have grown on me and I love that beautiful red color!

Kale is a favorite in my Blasts, but occasionally I add spinach, savoy cabbage, Swiss chard, and broccoli. Recently, I have even added some green leaf lettuce to my Blasts for a fresh and delicious flavor.

There’s even some fruit I don’t particularly enjoy in whole form that I absolutely love in NutriBlasts, including cantaloupe and honeydew melon. Frozen red seedless grapes are wonderful to add as well, and freezing them actually makes all the difference!

I can usually come up with many recipes off the top of my head because it’s so much fun to get in the kitchen and experiment. Don’t be afraid to mix things up, buy produce you’ve never heard of, and try some things you never thought you’d like. You might be surprised by the results!
