Since I got my Ninja Ultima Blender, I have become a smoothie-making NINJA!
From kid-friendly fruity smoothies, to veggie-packed power smoothies, to adult-only cocktail smoothies, my Ninja Ultima Blender and I seem to be constantly spinning magic. I am in smoothie-making bliss!
I have been having a great time trying out healthy smoothie recipes from the Ninja Ultima website, like this Berry Healthy Smoothie, as well as creating a myriad of my own recipes. The beauty of smoothies is that whether you have a recipe for inspiration, a favorite blend of fruits you want to use, or a fridge of extra veggies, you are the creative master as you blend your own creations.
I used the Berry Healthy Smoothie for the smoothie pictured here – although I substituted the pineapple chunks for mango chunks, and used frozen fruit not fresh. This is a fantastic recipe to hide SPINACH in with the sweet berries. You can’t taste or see the spinach at all!
The Ninja Ultima™ Blender is a crushing, chopping, blending machine! Imagine if your blender had the power and capabilities of a food processor – if you could crush ice, nuts, vegetables in seconds – and you have the Ninja.
At just a 1/3 of the price of a Vitamix, I am so impressed with the Ultima and recommend them to anyone looking for a new blender with versatility and power.
