The need for a blender has been high on the list for a while and I am not one to go all willy nilly without weighing the options and specs. The Ninja has been all the rage for a while, has not been obliterated by the critics and recommendations of friends that have one said it was a solid choice. Then when considering the amenities that came with it particularly that single serve cups blend right on the machine, that was the best bonus for me. The Nutri Bullet was a final contender, but it was not as versatile so that is what bumped it off.
It is so relieving to be able to properly mix my shakes, make smoothies, and have minimal clean up. My first concoction is a wheat grass, apple, and grape smoothie with coconut milk and a few ice cubes. It tastes good, although when they recommend straining the grass instead of just cutting it up into small pieces you should do that. The drink came out a bit chewy, not necessarily bad tasting though. If you are not hardcore it will definitely take away from the overall enjoyment.
