Lean Green Pineapple Kale Smoothie with The Nutri Ninja® Auto-IQ™ Pro Compact System


    I have found an appliance that is so awesome! I first discovered the Nutri Ninja brand when I was in New York this past July. I was attending a blog conference and one of the sponsors there was Nutri Ninja. They were creating delicious pineapple kale smoothies. One sip and I was hooked on their Auto-IQ system. This powerful machine not only made the drink taste great but it blended the kale up completely, there was no tiny chunks in there. The pineapple kale drink was very smooth. I just had to have one of these wonderful machines. The blender that I was using never allowed me to even use kale in my smoothies, as it would leave big chunks kale.


     I am now a proud owner of a Nutri Ninja® Auto-IQ™ Pro Compact System! This machine came at the perfect time too! My small blender that I was using to make smoothies developed a crack and became worthless. Once I tried out the Nutri Ninja, I discovered my small personal blender was worthless before the crack. My small blender would leave small chunks of fruits and veggies in my smoothies. The Nutri Ninja was even able to process carrots, my favorite ingredient, to a smooth texture. I soon discovered that this amazing machine was able to do so much more than making smoothies. It replaced my food processor, my blender, my frozen drink maker, the kids snow cone machine, and the expensive stand mixer that I was eyeing to purchase. My daughter, who recently got married, will be getting my old appliances and my countertop will be less cluttered.

         So let me show you all that you receive with the Nutri Ninja® Auto-IQ™ Pro Compact System. You get a lot of different pieces that will allow you to do many different things like making smoothies, chopping veggies, making dough, shaving ice, and more.


 This is the 1100-watt motor base  that operates all the items and features Auto-iQ™ Smooth Boost™ Technology that takes drink customization to a whole new level. Just look at all the buttons it has. The extract button is what you use when you to make veggies like carrots and kale all smooth in your drinks. The blend button is great for shakes. The chop button chops items like nuts and veggies. The cool thing is you can press different buttons together to get different results.


This is a nice 48 ounce multi serve pitcher which is great for making smoothies, shakes and other drinks. I love that I can use this to make 3 days of smoothies which saves me time or I can make milkshakes for the family.


    This machine comes with 2 blending jars that are 24 ounces and one is stainless steel which keeps your drinks cold for a long time. I love that you put your smoothie ingredients into the jar and then twist on the blending lid. The jar then goes on the base so you can process the ingredients. You then can place a sip and seal lid on the jar so you can take the smoothie on the go.


The last item is the 40-ounce blend & prep bowl that comes with a chopping and a dough blade. This bowl works like a food processor and will make pizza dough, cookies, salsa, hummus, and more. I can't wait to make cookies with this. I also will be able to make my cashew pate in this.


This awesome machine looks so nice on my kitchen counter and will be getting a lot of use.  You can find the Nutri Ninja® Auto-IQ™ Pro Compact System at major retailers nationwide, starting at $129.99 MSRP. It comes with a recipe inspiration guide and the first-ever coffee & spice grinder blender attachment will be available for purchase.

  2. I need to get a new ninja. We had one for years, many years but it finally died. I bought a blender but it doesn't compare. This one looks even nicer than the one I had.
