What a surprise to find my Nutri Ninja® – Ninja® Blender DUO with Auto-iQ™ had arrived on my front step this week. This past September I attended the IFBC (International Food Blogger Convention) in Seattle, Washington. During lunch sponsored by Ninja, celebrity chef from “The Biggest Loser,” Devin Alexander demonstrated and showed us some real “WOW” factor using the NEW one touch Ninja blender. Several recipes were demonstrated using all the different attachments for the Ninja and I thought this is a great kitchen appliance that can be a space saver in the kitchen. After the conference I was sent this amazing blender system to use and review. In just one BIG box I had the master base with a blender, food processor bowl plus three sizes of Nutri Ninja® cups. After washing everything and reading the manual I was ready to make my first recipe. The first attachment I wanted to try was the blender. The large blender at 72 oz is a perfect size to make large batches of any frozen treat. A few days ago I froze some fresh Oregon apple cider in ice cubes trays to be ready to make a fresh apple cider slushy. Adding 12 apple cider ice cubes with 1 cup of fresh apple cider in the blender I was ready to create a fresh frozen treat. With the Ninja® Auto-iQ™ technology everything is already programed for you with just one push of the button. With the unique blending, pulsing, and pausing I had the perfect apple cider slushy in just a minute. What makes this different from other blenders is the Total Crushing® Blades, it pulverized the apple cider ice cubes in seconds making a smooth fresh drink for my family. The recipe combinations are endless with the Ninja® Auto-iQ™ blender. Not just for smoothies either, you can create homemade ice cream, sauces, soups and so much more. Here are some of the features you will love with Ninja® Blender with Auto-iQ™:
