I put my new little Ninja to work again this morning. It's still a breeze to clean and I am truly loving my purchase. Today's post is a simple sweet delight.....Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie!
6 oz. skim milk or almond milk
6 oz. low-fat reduced sugar strawberry yogurt
1/2 c. frozen strawberries
1/2 c. frozen pineapple chunks
Blend until smooth! If it is too thick, thin with a bit more milk.

I love a new kitchen gadget, especially one that comes in fun colors. Well, I bought a new fuchsia gadget for making smoothies. Now, it can be used for a many other things, but I bought it for mixing up my protein drinks.
I wanted it for one main reason. Easy clean up. I have a Vitamix, which I love, but sometimes it is a pain to clean. In the morning I want to mix up a quick 8 oz. breakfast drink, and I really don't feel like cleaning the bigger blender. So more times than not, I skip the smoothie.
While watching QVC the other day, I saw a cute little Ninja. Now they were showing all the great things it can do, but all I saw was easy peasy smoothie mixer. The bonus was it came in a gazillion colors. I of course chose the pink option.
Tonight I used it for the first time, and in about 90 seconds I was enjoying a chocolate peanut butter smoothie. I paused my drinking and cleaned the new machine in about 30 seconds. Yep, I am a happy smoothie maker. It is still currently available from QVC, just search Ninja Storm. It's under $30.00, so go ahead and give it a try.
Now I need to find all new recipes to try out.
