Ice Ice Baby…ok ok so when I see the word ‘Ninja’ I always revert to Vanilla Ice and TMNT…it also doesn’t help that he has a new commercial out but that’s another blog post. This post is all about the fantastic Nutri Ninja BlendMAX Duo and the awesome smoothies that we’ve been making.
We enjoy making different smoothie combinations to try as a family. We usually never follow a recipe but that’s okay! Out of the five of us, there’s always one that likes one of the flavors we come up with. This baby has a lot of different features that we have enjoyed which include:
• Single serve blending cups (on the go breakfast)
• An 88-oz. pitcher which has been great for smoothies and milkshakes for the family
• 1600-Watt Motor Base with Auto-iQ Boost™
• Dishwasher safe
The best feature, in my opinion, is the single serve blending cups. I will often make my kids a fruit smoothie and they like yogurt in theirs but I typically do not. The cups allow us to add ingredients per individual taste and not worry about cleaning the big pitcher. The individual cups do have a fill line that you really do not want to go past. If you do go past the line, the cup will overflow when you put on the cap to put it on the blender. I only wish it had come with four cups instead of two!
We also benefit from using the 88 oz. pitcher when everyone can agree on what to put in it! We did pineapple, banana, yogurt, and orange juice and it was fantastic…even though I’m not the biggest yogurt fan. Mmm, it looks so good! There is a button to push to release the handle or the lid will not come off. There’s also an opening on the left side that you can add more liquids or pour with the lid on and save yourself a mess.
I’d say the only feature I do not like about the Ninja is how loud it is. I know it’s a blender and they are loud in general but this brand seems to be the loudest. Make sure the kids are sound asleep before you use to make yourself a mommy drink or they will hear it and come running to see what you’re making!
You can enjoy your smoothies straight from the blender in your individual glass. Who wants to do more dishes? I don’t!
