I am kind of a smoothie addict. I usually do not start my day without a fruit smoothie. I usually add bananas, strawberries, and any other sweet fruit I have in my kitchen. Some days I add gluten-free hemp protein and other days I throw in a handful of spinach. I always use almond milk! This is a naturally gluten-free breakfast that is simple to make. Less than one minute later, I have a few servings of fruit and veggies ready to drink. Simply add your ingredients, screw on the cap and let that Ninja do it's job.

The thing I like best about the Ninja is that it comes in three sizes. I tend to shove as much as I can into my smoothie. With three different cup sizes, this let's me make a huge smoothie. I also like to make soup in my blender so I think with the biggest Ninja cup, I could make a few pints. The other thing I like about the Ninja is the suction cups on the bottom of the machine. This machine is powerful and the suction prevents the Ninja from rattling off the counter. I also like the screw-on covers that you can add to the cup to drink directly from it after making your smoothie in it. One less dish to wash!
The thing I like least is the noise. This thing is loud. There's no late-night smoothie making if you have a sleeping baby, roommate, or spouse. It's too loud. But at just 45 seconds or less to make your smoothie, the sound doesn't last too long.

The Nutri Ninja with Auto-iQ came with two recipe books and I am excited to change up my usual smoothie routine a little bit. There are also tons of resources online with recipes from devout Ninja users. I want to make everything.
What is your favorite smoothie or juice recipe? I would love some more inspiration.

Thank you Nutri Ninja for the awesome gift! It will go to good use in my kitchen. Smoothies for everyone!
