Bajan Sweet Potato Mash Recipe

Ingredients

3-4 large sweet potatoes
1 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp skim milk

Directions

Microwave sweet potatoes for 10-13 minutes or until they are soft all the way through.
Scoop flesh from skin with a spoon (they will be very hot so you will need to use oven mitts or something else to protect your hands from getting burned).

*Note-Try to completely scoop all flesh from the inside of skin. There is a wonderfully flavored caramelization that occurs in the microwave just beneath the skins of the sweet potato.
Place sweet potato flesh into NutriBullet
Add skim milk, cinnamon and nutmeg
Blast mixture for 30 seconds.
Add more milk is needed (if consistency is too think) *Be careful not to add too much milk as it could become too liquefied

Once consistency is perfect serve immediately.

Serving Suggestions:

Place a spoonful of sweet potato mash on a plate and top with a freshly grilled piece of fish (swordfish, flounder, mahi mahi, and halibut all work well).

Make Cajun spiced grilled shrimp kabobs and place spoonful of sweet potato mash and sautéed spinach as side dish.

Accompany curried chicken breast with a side of sweet potato mash and roasted cauliflower.

Tropical Blueberry Blast

Posted by NutriBullet

I never believed the old saying, Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But you know what? It really is. For years, I used to skip breakfast and by lunchtime, I was famished. I would gorge myself on starchy carbs and by mid afternoon, I was ready for a nap. Not anymore.

Its a proven fact that breakfast gives your body fuel to start the busy day. Also, it can help you maintain a healthy weight and jump start your metabolism.

I've been playing around with different combinations of fruits and veggies. Here is one for you blueberry lovers. Did you know blueberries are considered a Super food? They have a ton of antioxidants, a lot of vitamins and are loaded with fiber.

Guacamole

Posted by Kim Pontius

I have had my NutriBullet for over a year and I love it! I used to think it was just for making my morning NutriBlast boy was I wrong. Ive discovered its much, much more. It has turned out to be one of my favorite kitchen appliances. I use it at least twice a week to either prepare dinner or to whip up something fancy for a party. The NutriBullet is my go to when I need things prepared quick and easy.

With all that said, I discovered it makes the most delicious guacamole. Not only is it easy to prepare, it has a creamier texture than the average guac. This is a great dip for game day or anytime hors doeuvres.

Guacamole Dip

2 Avocados peeled
1/3 Cup of onion, chopped
1 Medium tomato, chopped
1 Clove of garlic, chopped
½ Jalapeno chile pepper, chopped
1 T of fresh lime juice
¼ Cup of light sour cream

Directions

Place all ingredients into the large NutriBullet cup and mix until smooth. Place the avocado pit in the center of the dip before serving to prevent browning.

Did I mention that avocados are healthy for you, too? This recipe will leave you feeling buenísimo! Serve with chips and salsa and you have a fiesta. Please feel free to improvise on this classic recipe.

¡Olé!

Applesauce

Posted by NutriBullet

Applesauce has been around for hundreds of years. Apples are delicious, nutritious and affordable. The varieties are endless. The history of applesauce dates back to the mid-1700s; originally, it was a way to help preserve the fall harvest of apples for the long winter months. Nowadays, its a yummy side thats loved by young and old alike.

There are tons of varieties at your local supermarket, sure, but why not make your own? Its simple to make and tastes 100 times better than store bought. I started making this for my daughter when she was about one year old. Now that she is 13, with the help of the NutriBullet, she makes it on her own.

This recipe can be done with any variety of apples you choose. I love a combination of Granny Smiths and Fuji. This way you get the sweet and the tart in one. You can leave the peel on or remove it. I like to leave the peels on. Not only does it add to the nutrition, the applesauce ends up with a nice light pink color to boot.

Applesauce

Ingredients

4 Medium apples, cored and chopped
¾ Cup water
¼ Cup of sugar
½ tsp. of ground cinnamon

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Cover and cook over a medium-low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are soft. Allow to cool.
In small batches, add mixture to the large NutiBullet cup and blend until smooth. Serve or refrigerate immediately.

This is the perfect side dish with dinner or an accompaniment with desserts. You can even replace the sugar with a little Stevia or honey, depending on your desired sweetness levels.

As with all my recipes, please feel free to take creative liberties.

Enjoy! Hope this helps more at

Hearty Fruit & Oat Blast

Posted by NutriBullet

Here is a way to get more bang for your breakfast in the morning! I love a good hearty bowl of homemade oatmeal, but I usually dont have the time to cook or I dont feel like dealing with the clean up. Those little instant oatmeal packages have way too much sugar. Ive found a great way to incorporate my oatmeal into my morning Blast and have discovered this hearty fruit & oat concoction.

Oatmeal is a great cholesterol-reducing food. It contains soluble fiber, which decreases the amount of bile reabsorbed by the intestines and reduces the amount of cholesterol in the bloodstream. Plus, it has a ton of vitamins and protein. Now add that to everything a fruit and veggie NutriBlast has to offer and youve got a super-healthy and totally delicious combination!

Strawberry-Smoothie

Check out this tweak to a fruit Nutriblast that adds wholesome oatty goodness:

1 Cup of strawberries, fresh or frozen
1 Banana
½ Cup of old fashion oats
¼ Cup of raw almonds
1 Cup of low-fat vanilla yogurt
2-3 Ice cubes
Water to line

Add all ingredients to the tall NutriBullet cup and extract until smooth.

Now Im getting my fruit with my oatmeal in one drink. What could be more convenient than that? There are so many different combinations. Peach is another one of my favorites with this combination too. What fruit do you like on your oatmeal? Give it a try and come up with your own favorite concoction. Please feel free to take creative liberties; the possibilities are endless!

Bajan Sweet Potato Mash

Posted by NutriBullet

I recently took a much needed and relaxing trip to Barbados. Yes, life is rough The Bajan cuisine is based on fresh fish, vegetables and Caribbean spices. The flavors are a wonderful diversion from what we find here in the northeast. Of course, I returned home and tried to re-create some of the delicious wonders of the tropics for my children and with great success with the following recipe. Sweet potatoes are a staple in Barbados because of their starchy consistency and versatility.

As a second generation Irish American, Ive spent many holidays staring at a bowl full of mashed sweet potatoes smothered with melted marshmallows. As a nutritionist, I still wonder how that originated and was allowed to continue. Ive been trying to find a healthier alternative for a while now, and I think I have finally discovered a fabulous new addition to my familys Thanksgiving table! Its a great side dish for grilled fish, grilled chicken, or broiled shrimp kabobs. Ive made it three times now since returning from Barbados and my children have devoured it each and every time. Try it for yourself!
