Coconut Strawberry Protein Smoothie
I finally bit the bullet recently and invested in a Ninja Blender. For the last ten years I have managed to get by with either my food processor or my immersion blender. Honestly, I have always preferred my immersion blender up until this point because it was so simple to puree up a good tomato soup, my favorite salad dressing or something new like this Coconut Strawberry Protein Smoothie.
I would just give the wand a quick wash and tuck it back in the cabinet. The idea of dealing with a big cumbersome blender was overwhelming and not appealing whatsoever!
I will admit, there is one downfall to my beloved immersion blender…power. The fact of the matter is, it struggles to get through frozen fruit in smoothies or any other harder substances.
Finally this led me to browsing the aisles of Target with a gift card that was burning a hole in my pocket. The Ninja Blenders had some serious appeal. I took the leap and opted for this model that includes a couple of cups for easy wash up and storage. I love that I can enjoy my smoothies right from the cup I blend it from! The fewer the dishes the better in my world.
