I don’t know how I ever survived without my Ninja Ultima Blender.  It is a food processor combined with the perfect tool for creating smoothies.  I literally use mine everyday to make my green smoothies.  I simply throw in a cup of frozen fruit, handful of kale, a banana, a tablespoon of peanut butter and a cup of coconut water.  Blend it all up in one of the nutri ninja cups and throw on a sip and seal lid and you are good to go with the perfect healthy recipe!
