Nutri Ninja provided me with their amazing blender system, in return for my honest opinion for this review.
When I saw Fed-Ex delivering the package, I felt like a kid on Christmas morning and getting a present I actually wanted. When I opened the box, it was so pretty. I could not get Christopher away from it. He wanted to know what this thing was all about.
This complete blender system can and will replace many smaller kitchen appliances I have in my kitchen right now collecting dust. It is amazing for making smoothies and milkshakes, say goodbye to my old blender. The boys ask me every day to make them a shake or smooooooothy. They are obsessed. Which I don’t mind one bit because the smoothies we make are packed with all sorts of fruits, yogurt, and sometimes veggies. The milkshakes I limit, but wow are they delicious.
The Auto-iQ technology is pretty amazing in itself. This feature provides many programs that combine unique timed pulsing, blending, and pausing patterns that will do all the work for you. You will get your desired outcome with no more guessing.
Now let’s talk all about what this bad boy can do! Like I stated before, smoothies, shakes, frozen drinks (my husband and I like the alcoholic kind, Margaritas, Pina Coladas, Daiquiris, and I can’t forget my favorite, Mudslides). It will make each drink so smooth, no more crunching ice while you drink.
It can puree food. AWESOME, if you want to make your own baby food. When my kids were babies I loved the idea of making their food, but as a full time working mom, I just couldn’t seem to fit it in. If I had the Ninja then, I could whip up foods in just minutes compared to how my food processor works. Bye, bye, food processor! I have been using this like crazy to mince garlic, make fresh pesto, and chopping up toppings for the kids (and my) ice cream sundaes.
With the Ninja Blender System a food processor bowl comes with it as well. I can (haven’t yet, summer is busy) make cookie dough! Say what!! I can’t wait to get the boys involved when we do this. I don’t get around to making homemade cookies as often as I would like, this will cut the time it takes in half. Plus when it comes time for the annual Christmas cookie swap, I won’t be as worried as to how I will get it all done. Another favorite, guacamole. Again the Auto-iQ can determine just the right texture, it is amazing.
The boys are always so excited when they see me getting ready to prepare something. Yes they are always hoping for a milkshake or smooooooothy, however even if I’m making something else, they can not wait to help. Of course I do not let them touch the inside area of the cups, blender, or food processor bowl, but they love helping me put ingredients into the containers and hitting the button. Obviously the blades inside are sharp, there are warning labels, duh… If McDonald’s needs to put a warning on a hot coffee cup, saying “warning contents hot” then must not be obvious to everyone.
The boys laugh, giggle, and do this adorable little dance when they know ty will be helping me. They love it!
I included this short video so you can see for yourself how much they not only enjoy helping, but the end result too.
The Nutri Ninja also came with a recipe book. 150+ recipes of juices, teas & waters, breakfasts, soups, sauces, entrees, breads, baking goods, and desserts!
With the Nutri Ninja, I am eliminating a blender, food processor, garlic press, mini chopper, and hand mixer. What you will pay for the Nutri Ninja vs. buying all of these kitchen items, you will save money, more importantly space, and time.
I highly recommend this for someone getting married, or a splurge for someone who is having a baby, and of course anyone that likes to cook (and save time and effort doing so).
The next item on my list to try is the Ninja 3 in 1 cooking system. With fall and winter fast approaching, there is nothing better than coming home (as the aroma hits you) to a meal that has been slowly cooking all day. Plus for moms and dads any help getting dinner done is a blessing. I will take all the help I can get.
