Avocado is a fabulous ingredient to use in Nutribullet recipes (also called Nutriblasts) as it provides the same creamy texture as a banana, and is also backed full of healthy fats.

Avocado can be used to make dips such as guacamole in the Nutribullet, as well as smoothies and even pretend ice-cream!

Here we pick out some of our favourite Nutribullet avocado recipes for you to try. So get stocked up and start experimenting…

Zingy Nutribullet guacamole

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 Teaspoon or lime or lemon juice
  • 5   diced cherry tomatoes
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • chilli to taste or 1/4 jalapeño pepper
  • Fresh coriander
  • Salt and pepper

Method:

  • Scoop out the avocado flesh, discarding the stone. Place in the short cup.
  • Put the remaining ingredients, in the order they are listed, into the short cup. Make sure you don’t go past the max line.
  • Twist on the cross blade and place the cup onto the power base.
  • Give it 3-4 quick pulses until all the ingredients are chopped and blended.
  • Make sure you don’t over-blend if you’re looking for a chunky consistency. You may need to tap it a bit to get all the ingredients mixed in.
  • Chill in the fridge for the best taste.
