Words: Jess Spiro

With spring around the corner, the days are getting longer and it’s going to be warming up before we know it. The start of the warm season is the perfect time to refresh your habits, maybe pick up a new exercise regime. After the doldrum of winter, it can be hard to perk yourself up again, so get inspired and re-energised with this Fully Charged smoothie. Packed with revitalising banana, pumpkin seeds and peanut butter, it will give you the energy kick you need.

With the help of probably one of the most popular kitchen appliances around, making yourself a tasty smoothie is incredibly simple and fuss-free. Unlike juicers, which remove fibre, and traditional blenders, which often leave chunks, the Nutribullet’s powerful 600w motor blends in seconds, retaining  all of the delicious flavour, and most importantly, the vital vitamins and minerals you need.

If you think getting healthy is a chore, then think again. NutriBullet makes smoothies and cleaning up an absolute cinch.
