It’s the beginning of the year which means everyone is ready to make some changes. I never make resolutions but that doesn’t mean that I don’t get bit by the “clean slate bug” too! January 1st hit me hard and I decided that it was time to start thinking about making some small, manageable changes. Breakfast normally consists of waffles or bagels – HORRIBLE choices I KNOW. My friend Cheryl started doing smoothies and lost 20 pounds in 6 months thanks to that slight change. I’m SOLD.

So, I got my hands on the Ninja Ultima Blender and decided to give it a shot. Here are two healthy smoothie recipes that she drinks over and over again.


Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Almond Paradise

Perfection, right?

Now, let’s talk about why the Ninja Blender is the right tool for you.

The Ninja Ultima Blender is powerful and competes against professional grade name brands but costs a lot less. It’s the only blender that offers dual stage blending.  The Total CrushingBlades rotate at 5,000 RPM and CRUSH whole fruits, vegetables, seeds & ice while the bottom High Speed Cyclonic Blades rotates independently at 24,000 RPM and liquefy ingredients into a silky smooth consistency in a matter of seconds. Have to love that!!

Here’s the best part — you know how your kitchen counter is just cluttered with madness? Well guess what? You don’t have to worry about all those machines anymore because the Ninja Ultima Blender replaces machines like food processors, ice cream makers, juicers, ice crushers, cheese graters, meat grinders and MORE! It’s an all-in-one kitchen tool that will become your go-to resource for all your cooking needs.

I hope you enjoyed our recipes that we made! Please go out and make them because I am telling you they were delicious!!! My friend Cheryl has three kids and has never looked better and she says it all started with making this small change in her eating habit. 2014 here we come!
