When it comes to blenders, there are so many options out there. Maybe you want to make a smoothie for yourself, or maybe you need to make a big batch of something like a soup or salsa. The Nutri Ninja Duo Blender With Auto IQ may be the perfect option for you.
I received the duo for this review and have loved trying it out. The set comes with everything you see in the picture (72-ounce pitcher, and 18-ounce, 24-ounce and 32-ounce Nutri Ninja Cups with Sip & Seal Lids), including the wonderful Eat to Lose, Eat to Win book. It’s not only a recipe book, but a guide to healthy eating. All parts are detachable, dishwasher safe and BPA free.
The Nutri Ninja features Auto iQ technology which means that it is pre-programmed with settings with unique blending patterns that deliver smooth consistent results, with no guesswork required. It is also optimized for maximum nutrient and vitamin extraction and pulverizes fibrous vegetables, fruits, seeds, and nuts to an ultra-smooth consistency. I really love making smoothies, so the first thing I wanted to try was obviously a smoothie using the Nutri Ninja. When I filled this cup as you see above, I kind of overfilled it and I also went in the wrong “stacking order”, if you will, of the fruits. In here I added blueberries, spinach, banana, apples and strawberries. I didn’t add any liquid to it at all. Because the big items were at the top, it took a couple of times blending it until it was smooth. I really should have added the big stuff last, not first. I will admit that the blending process is loud, but that’s because it’s powerful. Unless you plan on using your Ninja in a library, or when everyone is sleeping, this shouldn’t be a problem.
Here is what my 5 year old thought of it. She was super excited about the cup with the lid and she drank it all. She didn’t even taste the spinach! In fact, all three of my kids and my husband have been drinking these smoothies without complaints since the day I got it. I almost always add spinach or kale to their drinks too. Shhh. Don’t tell them.
All in all, I have been finding that I have been using the Ninja daily. In the book that comes with it, there is a recipe for an easy broccoli soup that is amazing! It has become one of our weekly staples. Did I mention I also make smoothies every. single. day? The Ninja has quickly earned it’s place on my counter top. I don’t forsee it being cabinet bound in the near future either.
