The Ninja Master Prep

I was looking for a blender I could leave on the counter. Something not huge but something I could get more than 6oz from.

Regular size blender – too big. The Bullet Blender – too small – and way too many pieces.

While at my local Meijer store, I browsed through the tons of different blenders.

I finally picked the Ninja Master Prep for $40.
Mine is silver.
It came with a Master Prep Pitcher (48oz), Master Prep Bowl (16oz), 2 sets of blades for each, lids for each and a Master Pod.

The Master Pod goes easily from the pitcher to the bowl – no cleaning. So you go from blending a drink to whipping up guacamole just by picking up the pod and placing from blender to bowl.

It crushes up ice so nice. Our 16yo has me making smoothies and shakes almost every day. It’s so much cheaper than going to a drive-thru and it makes me feel good that he still needs me…. So I’m NOT going to teach him how to do it himself… for awhile anyway.

The bowl is great for chopping up garlic, onions, tomatoes… whatever… quick, easy and no mess.

The pitcher stays on my counter with blades inside and pod on top ready to go. The Master Prep Bowl and lids take up very little room in my cupboard.

I’ve had the Ninja Master Prep for almost 3 months and I love it. My favorite part… it all goes in the dishwasher! Woo! Hoo!

You know... I love my Ninja so much, I just may move up to that bigger blender after all.

Our Favorite Smoothie:
Frozen Strawberries – about a 1.5 cup
Frozen Lemonade Concentrate – ¼ can
Apple Juice – splash or two
Ice Cubes – two or three

Blend it all up. YUM!!!

Gman likes it with a splash or two of vodka… that works too.

Please Note:  I was not paid to show my Ninja love.

That sounds like an awesome product. I was going to get a Bullet, but I was worried it would be too small. I'm glad to hear your opinion. I'll have to look for this blender, instead.

I'm a new follower. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog earlier!

P.S. A shot of vodka in the blended drink sounds pretty good!

You had me at a splash or two of Vodka...LOL

Seriously, I've been looking for a blender too as mine seems to have gone off to a house downtown full of college students. I'll have to check this one out!

It's a great smoothie on a hot day. You'll love it... with & without the vodka.
