You may recall that I mentioned I fell in love with a blender at the Healthy Living Summit . From the second I tasted the green smoothie it made, I NEEDED to know where it came from! Enter the , which the good folks at Ninja sent me as a gift in exchange for this review.

In the health and wellness world, the Vitamix is synonymous with blender, but with a price tag upwards of $500 it was never something I recommended to clients as a must-have. I’ve always believed that nutrition should be accessible and fit within any budget. So I maintained that any blender would do the trick if you run it for long enough. In fact, even I had been holding out for a high-priced blender myself.

Then I met this guy.

Ninja Ultima Blender

The Ninja is a bad ass in the kitchen. It makes everything from juices and smoothies to nut butters and can even mill flour from whole grains!

The best part is that at $199 it’s a fraction of the price of  other high-speed blenders on the market. Dual blades make this thing super powerful for crushing and blending and it’s dishwasher safe and easy to wash. I love that the Ninja comes with two single serve cups that fit right onto the base, great for making individual-sized, no-mess smoothie in minutes.

IMG_2127Some of its best features:

  • 2.5 Peak Horsepower Motor/24,000 RPM***
  • Only blender with Dual Stage Blending
  • Total Crushing & High Speed Cyclonic Blades
  • PRO Variable Speed
  • Gives you a wide range of speeds to
    create anything from sauces to whole juices!
  • 2 Single Serve Cups with Sip & Seal lids
    for personalized drinks on the go

My only complaint is that it’s kind of loud. Like really loud. Nevertheless, it’s become my new favorite kitchen gadget!
