The folks over at Ninja sent over their newest Ninja IQ Blender and this things rocks. I have never used a blender this much in my life and I’ve finally been able to tackle fruit/veggie/protein shakes as well as a new salsa recipe like a champ. Let me tell you more …
The Ninja Auto IQ Blender has a heavy, solid base like none that I’ve ever seen before. The blender base even has suction sups that can attach themselves to the counter. How neat is that? And, with the Auto IQ smooth boost you’re able to extract the amazing nutrients out of the fruits and smoothies while the smooth boost makes the smoothies that you’re making, well … smooth.
I also love that the blender is really easy to switch things up. For example, yesterday I was making a salsa recipe and today I blended up a couple smoothies for my husband and I. With the simple switch out of blender cups and lids I was ready to go. For the cups you simply screw on the lid with the blades and tip it upside down to set on top of the blender base. Look at all of the pieces that the Ninja Blender comes with – you’re never without a cup for blending or drinking out of.
The blade that isn’t sharp is meant for doughs, like cookie dough for example, so this blender acts as a mixer of sorts, too.
And, to use the compact blending bowl, perfect for 5 cups worth of whatever it is that you’re making, simply place the bowl on the blender base and get to blending.
See those blades in there? Those things are wicked sharp… and they work like a charm.
I whipped up this canned tomato salsa in the large blender bowl in minutes and had just the right of space in the blender bowl. It was perfect.
And, look at how simply I was able to make this kale smoothie that I whipped up with my Ninja Blender.
If you’re looking for more fat busting smoothies, my friend Carla has a spinach smoothie here.
Since I got this blender (one week ago tomorrow) I have found myself using it over 6 times. Last year I used my old blender maybe six times total. If you are on the fence about a blender to get, I cannot recommend the Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ Compact System highly enough. I would have hands down purchased this Ninja blender had it not have been provided for this review.
