Be a Ninja in the Kitchen: Ninja Ultima for a Happier, Healthier You!

Before I start, I should really tell you that I received a really amazing product, the Ninja Ultima Blender, from Alpaytac and their client to facilitate this post. But as always, all opinions, ideas, and photos are entirely my own.
So y’all know I’m kind of a fanatic about a lot of things. I obsess, I overwork, I under eat, and what I do eat better darned well be healthy. I want to feed my family those healthy foods too. But I want them to love the foods they eat. I like to juice, B likes his protein shakes in a blender, and the kids just prefer anything sweet like milkshakes. And so I have tools. I have a food processor, a blender, a juicer, a…oh well, you get the picture. I have a lot of stuff that doesn’t do much of anything worthwhile.
That’s right. That’s just a wee-peek at the appliances I’ve been working with to satisfy everyone’s needs. Pitiful, I know. And the cleaning it takes after juicing and blending (and we haven’t even gotten to the food processor nor will we here) is ridiculous. Who’s got time for all of that? And because of that, I don’t juice as often as I’d like. I don’t make sauces as often as I’d like. I don’t do those healthy things for my family as often as I’d like because I’m just so tired of all of these appliances!

But the Ninja Ultima BL830 just changed all of that. Need a smoothie? The Ninja Ultima can handle that in minute. Want to juice your favorite fruits and veggies? They’ve got that too. Need to mix your protein drink? Easy peasy. But what if you want to whip up some homemade marinara but don’t feel like doing all of the chopping yourself? Guess what. They’ve got you covered on that too!

I decided to try my Ninja out with a simple smoothie recipe. The kids need more fruits in their diets so this was the perfect test for us. 
Strawberry, Banana, Blackberry, Lactose-Free Smoothies

What you’ll need:
  • One banana, sliced.
  • 8 Strawberries, green leaves cut off, cut in half.
  • 6 Blackberries.
  • 1 packet Equal.
  • 6 ice cubes. 
  • 1 cup Silk Strawberry Banana Fruit & Protein.

What you’ll do:

  • Place the ice in the blender.
  • Pour in the Fruit & Protein drink.
  • Dump all of the fruit in the Ninja. 
  • Sprinkle the packet of Equal over the top. 
  • Hit pulse 5 times on the Ninja.
  • Start blending at 3, then 4, then 5, then 6, until well blended and thick like a shake. 
  • Drink and enjoy!
This is seriously good, good for you, stuff. And the Ninja Ultima makes it effortless with it’s many features and clean up is a breeze.

A little bit about the Ninja Ultima Blender:
  • 2.5 Peak Horsepower Motor/24,000 RPM
  • Only Blender with Dual Stage Blending
  • Total Crushing and High-Speed Cyclonic Blades
  • PRO Variable Speed
  • Gives you a wide range of speeds to create anything from sauces to whole juices!
  • 2 Single Serve Cups with Sip & Seal Lids for personalized drinks on the go.

In other words…AH-MAZING! And happy, healthy, smiling faces are an added benefit.
I love finding products that make it easy for me to give the kids the nutrients they need and with the Ninja handy-dandy Inspiration Guide, you can come up with all kinds of ways to satisfy your family’s pallets with this one amazing tool.
And if Bubby likes it, I like it. It’s not often you can please this child with healthy food. Please don’t tell him how much fruit was in that smoothie because he’s asked for one every day since. Score!
My favorite piece of this amazing puzzle so far is this single blend serving cup. While I ready B’s lunch for him at night, I simply mix a smaller version of the smoothie above, or some of the many others we’ve tried, in this one cup. You hook it right to the blender and it works from there. Remove the blending lid, place one of the to-go lids on the cup, pop it in the refrigerator and it’s ready for breakfast in the morning. And all of the removable components are easy to clean by hand, or if you’re lazy or strapped for time (like me), it’s all dishwasher safe. 
Now it’s your turn. You need this. Easily replace your hand mixer, food processor, ice cream maker, juicer, meat grinder, stick blender, soup maker, and so much more with just this one appliance. You can buy this particular model now for $259.99 and get free shipping with this exclusive offer. Sound high for a “blender”? Why don’t you go add up all of the other appliances that this will replace? It’s a phenomenal value. And believe me, you won’t be sorry. We’re getting our money’s worth with a quickness. I can’t wait to make some homemade sauces this weekend. There are other models available starting at $199.99 so be sure to check the link for the Ninja that’s right for you.

You’ll be amazed at all of the fabulous recipes you can create with just one appliance. And as an added bonus, you’ll receive additional counter space. You’re welcome!
