(Note to readers: I was sent a Ninja Ultima(TM) Blender to review for this post. I was not otherwise compensated and my opinion remains my own.)
You know I am not someone who loves spending hours in the kitchen (go see my pal at A Beautiful Bite if you want more of that), but I’m happy spending a few minutes over a blender looking to whip up a nice daiquiri or two.
And before you get all judgmental on me, know that I don’t need alcohol in every drink…I’m all for an innocent smoothie every now and then, too.
But what I don’t like is having to worry about my blender being up to the task. Heck, my blenders have fallen apart facing ice cubes in the past. But not the new Ninja Ultima(TM) Blender that I was sent to review recently.
This blender is pure power.
It uses patent pending dual-stage blending technology, 1500 watts and 2.5 peak horsepower. Yes, horsepower. Crazy, right?! But get this: the blades on top can chop up an entire fruit—the whole thing—in a matter of seconds…then, the blades on bottom blend them into a silky smooth liquid.
It’s compared to the Vitamix® 750, but the Ninja Ultima(TM) sells for about a third the price at $200.
It’s ideal for mixing everything from blending beverages (ahem, my fav), to creating soups, grinding meats, even mixing cake batters.
It’s ideal for someone trying the total juicing trend that is so hot right now. Because you can use the entire fruit and vegetable, you get all the nutrients available (including stems, seeds, peels…you get the picture).
It’s available at major retailers. You can find out more at NinjaUltimateBlender.com.
