Like a Ninja

Last summer, when I began my adventure into vegan baking, I ran into a snafu.

I burned out the motor of my food processor…all while making some sort of peanut butter dessert.

I put this item on my Christmas list and, lo and behold, the in-laws gave me one!

Of course, they always go all out when they purchase gifts, for which I’m appreciative because their diligence ensures that the gifted items have five-star ratings and won’t tear up after one or two uses.

I was excited when I unwrapped the Ninja Kitchen System.

Here’s what it looked like when I unpacked it from the box…

Oh word, but look at all of those blades…BIG ones…and bowls (there’s a small one inside the larger one).

One of the things I had decided to do when the new year began was tighten up my eating habits.  Although I don’t eat too badly, I had begun to slip…eating more fries and things with sugar in them.  The roll that’s been growing around my middle is evidence of that, and having the poor body image that I do, I need to fix things.

The Ninja came with a small recipe book, so I decided to try my hand at one…Pineapple Banana Swirl…

I’ll admit that I am not a fan of smoothies.  I don’t like the texture of fruit mashed up, but this recipe wasn’t bad.  I’m going to stick to eating my fruit though.

I also made my black bean soup and had a lot of fun chopping up the onions, celery, and jalapeno peppers.

I’ve gotta say that this system is the BEST I’ve ever used, and though I don’t cook often, I have been married over twenty years and have used a lot of products.

If you’re in the market for a new blender/chopper system, you won’t go wrong with this!

I was not paid to write this.  I’m simply bragging about a positive experience with a product.  🙂

  1. My brother got one of those this year. I got the Montel WIlliams one – the Health master & its supposed to be similar – I think it has a tad bigger motor – but not all the fun gadgets yours has. I want to make soup in it so badly – I may give it a go soon!
    See -I’m a smoothie fan – used to drink one every morning. Need to do that again.

  2. Some of my friends have this brand and love it, too.
