Blender recipes series 1: Pesto

We have just bought a Nutri Ninja are are loving it, so much so that we have decided to write a series of post with recipes to make in a blender. Blenders are great as you can make a variety of different things in them, from smoothies, juices, ice cream and sauces.

We decided to start with pesto as it is so quick and easy to make, its crazy most people will buy it in ย a jar from the shops.The trouble with shop bought is the added nasties they put into it, the large amount of salt and quite a lot have the addition of garlic, which is a no go for those on a low FODMAP diet.

There is not specific recipe that we followed we just chucked a handful of basil, kale, 1 tbsp pine nuts and 1 tbsp good quality olive oil into a blender and whizzed it up.

Pesto can also be made with the addition of spinach, or substituting the kale for spinach.

You can make a small batch or make a large amount and freeze it

Enjoy the pesto with pasta or we quick enjoy putting pesto on top of salmon.
