I swear we have every appliance known to man sitting in our pantry and crowding up our cupboards. The only appliance we had missing was a blender. They are such a staple item but we have operated in our kitchen for the past year without one. The last one we had didn’t even make it a year before it started smoking and went out on us.
A month ago I received the Ninja Ultima Blender from Ninja Kitchen.
The day it arrived I was a little ecstatic about the delivery and unpacked immediately to test it out. I had been wanting a blender for a while so we could make smoothies in our house for us and Olivia. After our first batch I knew that we would all be huge fans especially Livi. She may even like them more than us and has even stole the rest of our cups to drink.
I can honestly say that we have used our blender almost every day since we have received it. The ninja ultima blender is now the most used appliance we own and has even gained top counter-space for ease of use.
We love to combine fresh and frozen fruit into our smoothies with a little bit of almond milk. This berry smoothie is made within minutes of adding everything together in the single blend cups. My next step is to add greens to the smoothies. This blender can do so much more than just make smoothies. You can check out other recipes with this machine right here.
One of the things that I really like about this blender is that it came with individual cups and a blade for single to double serving smoothies. That means there is less to clean up because you can drink straight from the cup.
I highly recommend this blender if you are looking for one. My only complaint is that the blender is loud when on. It’s not too bad but I wouldn’t recommend having it on during quiet time.

Disclosure: I received a Ninja Ultima Blender to review. I was not compensated for this post and all opinions are 100% my own. We truly love our Ninja Ultima Blender.
