New Blender!

So excited for my new blender I purchased this past weekend. While ultimately I’d love a Blendtec or Vitamix, it is way out of my budget. So instead I got a Ninja blender which I read great reviews for…and so far I love it!

I had previously been using my Magic Bullet to make smoothies, and while it is convenient and easy to clean, I wanted something bigger so I can pack in more veggies.

I received a 20% off coupon from Bed, Bath & Beyond…and my mom said she’d split the cost of a Ninja with me, so we went for it!

I tested it out the past few days and so far it’s amazing. Unlike the Magic Bullet, there are no leafy chunks or anything in my smoothies. They are (no pun intended) so smooth!

The blender takes a few seconds to mix everything up. Also, it is so easy to clean. Unlike a normal blender which has blades attached to the bottom, you can remove the blades on this to clean it separately. No more worrying about cleaning it and cutting your finger off.

Apparently you can use it as a food processor too…I’ll have to read more about that!

My plan is to drink more green smoothies daily. I was doing that over the summer and kind of fell off the wagon. Since I’m not a huge fan of veggies, this is a great way for me to get my veggie intake, especially for breakfast when I rarely eat vegetables.

Do you drink green smoothies? What do you use to make them?
