A great way to enjoy eating healthy is by being creative while you are planning your meals. What better way than to be able to take your fresh fruit and or vegetables and create a smoothie to YOUR taste. You can add in any of your favorite supplements as well. You can add in your favorite greens smoothie powder, protein powder, or any of your super food additives. Let’s look at a very economic blender that is perfect for anyone who is on the fence when it comes to creating their own formula

My Ninja 450 Watt Experience
I have had several blenders/ juicers throughout my 30 year journey to create a smoothie/drink/shake, you pick the name. I have searched for a machine to blend fruits mainly, but sometimes vegetables, with 2 pieces of criteria to meet. The 1st part was a blender easy to disassemble and reassemble and to store. My 2nd criteria was a blender that would be easy to clean. Every blender I have owned would blend about the same, however, they all had difficult areas to reach, or were not recommended “dishwasher safe”. The Ninja Blender solves both of the problems I had with the other blenders. You will also find the Ninja Blender is the most economical by FAR! . I want to be sure to point out that the Ninja Blender is not a “juicer”, and is not priced as one, nor is rated against one. Just add a small amount of water or a few ice cubes to make your smoothie or shake smoother. I love being creative with my Ninja. The combinations are endless. I make a green smoothie with keto powder, unsweetened yogurt, avocado, chia seeds, leafy greens (not always the same kind). I mix up the type of greens (can’t do kale all the time) to keep the carbs low and try different tastes. In an effort to make this process easier, i usually go to my favorite, a protein shake. I start with 100% whey (vanilla), because that works with just about anything you can dream up: fruits, yogurt, chocolate, ice cream etc. This process is very easy to create, with easy clean up.
Recipe for Smoothie without Yogurt
If you don’t like yogurt, and yogurt doesn’t like you, here’s a quick recipe to enjoy. I searched for a smoothie mixture that would taste great, would be easy to mix, and is healthy. After reviewing recipes online, some with yogurt (I would omit the yogurt listed in their recipe) and some without, here is what I make about 2 times a week. * 6-8 strawberries. *1 banana, cut into pieces. *1 cup low-fat milk *1 tbsp. Peanut butter ( have substituted almond butter as well ) . * Your favorite protein powder ( whey, keto, etc.) * Ice, add 4 to 6 cubes
Maintenance and long term care
Your new Ninja has a 1-year warranty, and you can add a 3 or 4 year warranty for a small cost. Ninja also has a parts program to ensure availability of new bowls or lids should you have the need. There are a few reviews out there with reference to the bowls cracking or the lids breaking. I have not had a trouble what so ever. The lid and bowl have an arrow on them for ensuring a tight fit. I believe having the arrows out of alignment during assembly could cause breakage, so just be careful to align the arrows.
