With temperatures persistently remaining in the thirties we’ve been turning to our Ninja Professional Blender to cool us down. The 1000 Watt standing blender has been ideal for making delicious cocktails, snow cones and smoothies. The impressive power of this blender allows you to effortlessly crush ice and frozen fruit making it the perfect addition to any hot day. The blender also comes with a 72 oz. pitcher that has come in handy for hosting friends on the patio and making margaritas. Here are our 5 favourite recipes to try with the Ninja Professional Blender.
Spicy Watermelon Margarita
The perfect combination of natural sweetness and spiciness, this is our go-to for hosting people. Try it with a tequila base or with Mezcal if you enjoy a little smokiness in your cocktails too.
2 Cups Tequila or Mezcal
1 Cup Lime Juice
2 Cups Frozen Watermelon Cubes
1/4 Cup Triple Sec
Optional: 1-2 Tablespoons Agave
Place all ingredients into the blending cup in the order listed. Garnish with salt on the rim.
Coffee Snow Cone
475 ml coffee, chilled
50 g sugar
130 g ice cubes
Stir together coffee and sugar. Pour into ice cube trays and freeze for 8 hours or overnight.
Place the ice cubes and frozen coffee cubes into the 2.1 L Total Crushing Pitcher.
Select SNOW CONE.
Ginger Greens Smoothie
1 cup baby kale
1/4 cup cilantro
1 date, pitted
2 small kiwis, peeled and quartered
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 teaspoon ginger root, peeled
1/2 cup coconut water
1/3 cup ice
Place all the ingredients in the order listed into the 24-ounce Nutri Ninja® cup and blend for 45 seconds. Remove the blades from the cup after blending.
Go ahead, embrace your inner meal prepper. We hear you, making smoothies the night before is a huge time saver. But, heads up, never store your smoothies with the blade assembly attached—active ingredients in some foods may lead to pressure buildup and possible injury. Store them with Sip & Seal™ Lids instead.
