Smoothie Saturday #11 - Plum Fit
 
A while ago I bought - The "NutriBullet". Since then I have been creating many smoothie creations.

Today is the eleventh "Smoothie Saturday" where I will share one of my smoothie experimentation.

In this recipe the plum is the feature ingredient.

PLUMS - have a high content of phytonutrients called neochlorogenic and chlorogenic acid -  which are powerful antioxidants.  Plums are high in vitamin C, vitamin A, fiber & potassium.  It is said that plums help prevent heart disease, cancer (specifically colon cancer), macular degeneration, arthritis and much more!
 
 
(again - I'm not a doctor - please see my "disclaimer" at the bottom of this post).

1 to 2 plums (depending on the size) (washed & pitted)
1/2 banana (peeled)
1 teaspoon flax seeds
1 tablespoon pecans
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 cup kefir (or yogurt)
1/4 cup water (if it is too thick)
 
Begin with the smaller "NutriBullet" container and use the "nut & seed" blade to blend & chop the pecans & flax seeds. Now place the remaining ingredients (including the processed seeds & nuts from the first step) into the larger "NutriBullet" container and use the "smoothie" blade. Blend for about 30 seconds (or until fully blended).

ENJOY!!
IMPORTANT: All of my smoothie recipes on this blog are measured for the "NutriBullet" and are a single serving - if you have a different kind of blender that has a larger capacity then you may increase the amount of ingredients according to your desired smoothie needs. The ingredients in this recipe measure close to the max line of the NutriBullet.

  1. Sounds like a yummy smoothie. I've never tried plums in mine yet, so I may have to try this! Visiting from a Humble Bumble Healthy Tuesday.
