Nutribullet takes on an Avocado Citrus Cream Dip

actual first

My first experiment with my new Nutribullet is to make an easy citrus avocado spread — delicious on water crackers, on top of salmon, or by the spoonful. Avocados are part of my top ten food I-can’t-live-without list. They are healthy, creamy, versatile and add a bit of luxury to any dish. Ever since I moved to Dallas, avocados are plentiful and typically under $1.00 each (lucky me) so they get incorporated into my food a lot.

The Nutribullet is a personal blender, juicer, food processor that fits within a 6 square inch area and weighs less than 10 lbs. The box came with 2 separate blades, 3 cups, 2 lids, a motorized base, a screw-on drink handle for portability, and a thorough recipe book. Given its compact size, it is great for any tiny apartment or dorm room, or any home that is trying to de-clutter! The gadget is easy to use and very sturdy (didn’t seem like it would break after the first couple of uses).

I put the ingredients into the small cup starting with the heaviest solids first (ie avocados) and filled just to the max line. I gave the Nutribullet a whirl and it stopped up after about 6 seconds. I realized it probably needed a bit more liquid to fully blend through so I added 1 tablespoon of water and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. 4 seconds later I had a citrusy, avocado spread with small chunks of avocado and tomato throughout. Yum…I had to try immediately.

Did I mention that clean up is a breeze? All you need to do is rinse under hot water the blade and the cup and let both components air-dry. The Nutribullet was also designed to have enough fashion sense to be a full time addition to my countertop.

Nutribullet takes on avocado? Nutribullet for the win. Let’s see what else the Nutribullet can take on.
