NutriBullet Basil Pesto

When I first purchased my trusty NutriBullet nearly a year ago, I had no idea the amount of use I’d put the darn thing through. I’m actually very impressed with its durability, because with nearly three uses a day in my household, every day – it has held up quite nicely. Typically, we use it to mix our Shakeology® in the mornings, but we also have been known to use it to create fruit and vegetable smoothies of any variety.

I realized the other day when perusing recipes for pesto online that the NutriBullet could also work as a great option for quickly mixing up the recipes ingredients, without the work and cleaning of using the food processor. To my delight, the NutriBullet worked like a charm and buzzed these ingredients in under 30 seconds. Now that is what I like to call an easy dinner!
