SM tests… the Nutribullet dessert bullet from HighStreetTV

This nifty gadget comes from the Nutribullet family and creates frozen treats. We thought it might be just the thing for a heatwave…

The Dessert Bullet essentially smushes up frozen fruit into something that looks (to even the most fussy child) like frozen yoghurt or gelato. You chop up fruit and freeze it: make yourself a little selection including 2 inch chunks of banana (these make the result surprisingly smooth and creamy), any sort of berry (for colour and taste), lovely seasonal delights like mango and papaya – and then just chuck a selection into the Bullet. If your kids need a bit of sweetness you could either toss in some coconut, or even chocolate chips – or sprinkle them on top at the table. 

You can change the nozzle to vary the way the dessert comes out (ie like a Mr Whippy, or like balls of ice cream) and obviously (you’d already thought of this, right?) it makes a kick ass Frozen Margarita. 

The bits that get dirty can just go in the dishwasher and it comes with a recipe book suggesting all sorts of super healthy alternatives to mint choc chip or whoopee pie – we’ve so far only done the fruity options but I imagine if you have family members who are gluten or dairy intolerant this gadget would be a godsend for puddings…”
