Ninja Blender Review and 4 Smoothie Recipes


Last month my family was on a Disney Cruise and I didn't have cell service for almost a week. When I got off the boat and saw the long list of emails I had waiting for me to open I quickly scanned through them and saw a email from Ninja. I just had to open it right away. I had recently seen their products demonstrated at IFBC in Seattle and was quite impressed. When they asked if I would like to try their new Nutri Ninja| Ninja Blender Duo with Auto IQ I didn't even have to think twice. It was totally like Christmas morning when I received the package. I even sent my husband a picture message at work! I was surprised how excited I was to have a new blender haha.


This combination is really the perfect thing for my family. I use a blender and my husband used a magic bullet for his smoothies. Well this is definitely the best of both worlds! Has both attachments that are both very easy to use! I was very impressed with the high quality of this blender with both the XL pitcher and the jar and cups.

The Nutri Ninja| Ninja Blender Duo with Auto IQ was very easy to use. It pureed my smoothie to the perfect consistency with little to no work on my part. I was able to just press a button and did not have to worry about pulsing it, shaking it, or making sure that it was all blended. It stopped and go'ed on its on. Which made it so easy and very well blended. I loved how easy it was to add more liquid when needed using the pour spout. Then when I was finished it was very easy to pour into my cups using the pour spout.




The Ninja website has plenty of amazing Ninja Recipes ranging from appetizers to soups to drinks to desserts! I spent quite a bit of time browsing through all their recipes! What a great place to be able to find new recipes to try right on their website! I have also added a few of my favorite smoothie recipes for you all to try!
