Ninja Blender Recipes
It does a very good job. I received my Ninja two years ago as a Christmas gift…but put it away because I thought it was too much like a blender. After reading reviews on here I find out I was one of the lucky few who actually got a recipe book included with mine. I pulled the box out this summer and opened up my Ninja…I am so in love with it!!
I use it on a daily basis and shelved my blender at the back of the pantry. The grand kids and I are making our snow cones on a regular basis, I can have my favorite iced coffee drink anytime I want!! I keep left over biscuits, hot rolls, bread etc in the freezer….. I suppose my blender could do some of these things…but the ease of the clean up with the Ninja is super fast!!!
I do the same thing for bread crumbs! Any chance of you posting the veggie-juice recipes? To increase veggies or fruit, smoothies are great.
Rocco Dispirito has a great watermelon punch and green tea powder smoothie that is very healthy. Just google it or it may be on twitter. I bought the Ninja , then saw the Ninja Prep, bought that, then saw the an I bought that.
I am keeping the or myself, and giving the other two for Christmas gifts not used to my daughters. I made cookies from the recipe book today and I have to tell, I am a cookie baker from way back, especially Christmas. I bake so many and give them away and put some in the freezer. But I have to say, the cookies were absolutely one of my best ever, they were crispy, had a delicious flavor and so good, that I watched my husband eat 12 of them.
He said they were one of my best cookies ever. I will be trying more recipes from the accompanying book. Rosetta, I would love your cookie recipe if you care to share. Sounds like they are very good…. I was so disappointed that there were no recipes for the Ninja when I bought it. I have a little one and was so excited to use it but with no guidelines, nothing worked except the snow. I am so glad I found this site.
Now I can take it off the shelf and give it another try. Thanks and please keep them coming. Needless to say, I took some time online to research this product. I had a smoothie this morning using the Ninja Prep Pro and was very please on how thick and frothy it was. So here I am now trying to find recipes to follow. I was very very disappointed on the lack of recipes.
I think I may have to photocopy the Magic Bullet recipes before I send that to the second hand store. So I will be bookmarking this page of yours. Thanks for posting these recipes and I look forward to seeing more!
I am currently playing around with something similar to a Magic Bullet, but by Cuisnart. It definitely has much less power and capability than the Ninja. I found your website recently by searching for recipes for the Ninja blender because I just recently got one.
I love all your recipes and intend to make almost all of the ones featured here, and look forward to more recipes in the future. Keep up the good work! Thank you so much for your nice note — you made my Friday afternoon! Enjoy your new Ninja blender and all it can do.
It is by far my favorite kitchen appliance! Just purchase the Ninja. Have you or others try using the 40 oz bowl for cake batters and how did the cake come out? Thanks for dropping by! However, I have used it for pancake batter and it works like a champ. Good luck, and stop back by and let us know how you fair.
Carol, if your willing to share the Ninja recipes you have I sure could use them. Just quick note,I made my first cookie batch this morning. Cookies came out great. I did find out, you pulse your cookie dough or cake batter. If you push dough button 1 you will over heat your blender and it will shut off and you have to wait 15 mintues.
Use a cake mix for cookies. You can find recipes onine. I am wondering if there is anyway people have found to juice with the ninja and get less grit…especially when juicing leafy greens, peppers, celery??? You know, I think that is one of the downfalls of the Ninja with the triple blades instead of the blade at the bottom. Whenever blending leafy greens, they will only blend so far, and then you have little particles left over. My best advice if it bothers you is to strain it with a sieve.
When I bought my Ninja, I had never heard of it or seen the infomercial. I think if I had it to do over again, would get the entire kitchen system, because of the extra small jar and other attachments. I have looked into buying parts individually to get the missing pieces, but it adds up to way more than just buying the whole system!
If you bought the KS in a store, you could probably just take it back and exchange it. I do agree that the individual cups is a big advantage!
Just wanted to use if for christmas preparation: I need that extra warranty though! I was given the pulse system as a gift but was thinking about trading for the KS Just curious which u decided on and why. If anyone else has any input that would be great as well!! I went ahead and bought a Pulse so I could do a full review of it. Sort of depends on the types of jobs you want big vs. I will be comparing the Pulse to the Ninja Professional blender in the review, so stay tuned!
I have never done a recipe for those items. If you are talking about a recipe from the company that produces the Ninja, you may want to contact them directly. It is a blender, mixer, drink maker, juicer, dough maker, and much more. For an idea of what you can make with it take a look at this page of recipes.
Just wanted to say thanks for sharing your research, hard work and recipes. That is a great deal, Carole! Glad the site — and all the many comment contributors — was helpful for you! I am a new father of the pulse and awaiting many anxious deliveries of batches and batches of cookies. But I did want to let you know about your straining method. You might want to try using a cheese-cloth bag.
Then you can compress it to get more juice out. I have been a long time user of a champion juicer that now sits under my cabinet but found clean up and the fact that all the pulp was wasted made the lover affair subside. I have tried lots of different methods based on what I had available at the time. Back in the beginning when I started making recipes, I had only a seive, so that is what I used!
I am not a huge juicer, but have heard people pretty much have your same complaint about juicers — the clean up is a bear. Easy to clean, easy to use, prep time for everything is fast. This is really perfect for someone like me. So glad I found your site! Looking at your site and reading others comments have helped. There is nothing to be scared of — it really is a fun blender to own and use.
Happy blending and thanks for stopping by! I have found a great source for veggie smoothies…. Not especially written for Ninja users, but can work in any blender. Go to this website, put in your email in the right side column, and it will take you to the download page for the 22 page booklet. Great recipes, no charge. Here is the website: Here is another source for some great smoothies….
Here is the URL: I am wanting to know if anyone has had any success in making vanilla ice cream in the ninja and if so how did you do it. If you want to give it a try, you might consider using the VitaMix recipe for this:. I do think some variation of this recipe will work, and will try it out in the coming days and report back on success or failure!
I am having trouble with the lid. I had to order another one as that is what happened to mine. Does anyone have any suggestions. Are you putting the lid back on when it is still slightly wet from the dishwasher? This can create a strong suction effect and makes the lid hard to get off. If this could be the case, I would recommend air drying the ild before putting it back on the jar.
Good to hear, Sandy! Thanks for the suggestion, it worked. The first lid I had was just defective, but was replaced with a new one. Lid still gives me fits. I have tried it wet, dry,etc. Any further suggestions would be appreciated.
I am afraid I will break it. Just purchased the Ninja I want mine primarily for organic veggie and fruit smoothies. The problem I am having is I cant get all the seeds out of the drink. My mom uses the Vitamix and doesnt seem to have that problem. Have you tried straining the juice with a mesh strainer? If I misunderstood your question, please let me know! Please join me to this site, if you may. Thank You Very Much! I use it x a day, for different things. I make smoothies for my son and my husband and sometimes for me too.
Later in the day, I do prep work for dinner in it by making sauces, marinades, shredding and slicing veggies it came with a food processor top and a 48 oz container to do it in , grinding seeds and nuts and cheeses, and then when I am making dinner I have done prep work in it then too.
It came with a soft cover book that has like recipes in it?? It is called Pulse It Up. Amazon is selling the set with the book.
Here is a link to just the book: Anyway, it is a pretty good book. I am thrilled to find your site because you have created recipes just using the Ninja blenders and you came up with ice cream recipes, not just fruity ones. I am also experimenting with it and making a lot of recipes in it that are not in the books.
I love using the single serve cups for uses other than smoothies such as sauces, grinding nuts and seeds and grinding parmesan cheese which broke 2 food processors when I tried to do that in them. Hi Angela, Thank you for providing so much information and all the many recipes for the ninja blender.
I am about to buy one, but just heard from a friend that she made salsa with the ninja. The salsa turned out great, but long story short — regardless how many times she thoroughly washed the pitcher — everything else she made after this tasted like onions. How do you clean, by hand or in dishwasher? Thanks in advance, and thanks for sharing your creative website. After my last batch yesterday, I washed my pitcher and the blades really well with hot sudsy water and then shaved up some ice for snow cones.
Absolutely no taste, smell or anything left behind from the salsa. I do always wash my Ninja by hand. Just thought I would throw in my 2 cents worth. I typically wash it both Pulse and Ninja Professional in the dishwasher. I am just far too lazy to do it by hand.
As far as your friend, I wonder if her pitcher is scratched up in some way? Perhaps cleaing with lemon or orange juice may help take the smell away. Pour in some juice and blend to swirl it all around. I realized afterward that the question was for you and I should have waited for your response. Love your tips and recipes. It took me awhile to get going with the Ninja-now I use it almost everyday! Again sorry for being rude. Your comment was very helpful and I appreciate the input!
Thank you Marla and Angela for your input. This is reassuring, and nothing will keep me from getting my own ninja today! I was thinking as I was looking through the recipes, if anyone here is a type II diabetic, and if so what would you recommend for making veggie juice? Many of the recipes seem to have a high sugar content, even if they are a healthy recipe. I guess for we diabetics we have to have probably small glasses of juice. By the way, I use my ninja to make my own pasta sauce and salsa.
For the pasta sauce I use around peeled and seeded roma tomatoes. Then I toss in green pepper, a couple of cloves of garlic, onion, and red pepper. You can also add in some cooked italian sausage if you like a meat sauce.
Blend it all up, throw it in a saucepan with a can of tomato paste and simmer for a couple of hours. This freezes very well. Just love your site. Was pricing a Ninja online and found your site. Need to try some of your recipes, they sound so good. I use my old Ninja almost every morning to make a smoothie Banana, frozen fruit like strawberries and Greek — the banana makes it really smooth I have been trying to eat healthier and have lost weight.
Thanks for your nice note. Hopefully you can find some new recipes here to add to your collection of healthy choices! I am so delighted at the performance because it does everything. So, anyone sitting on the fence, just do it!
Exciting that you bought the Ninja Mega! I am planning to purchase and review that system before the holidays. Ran across your site by accident and so glad I did! If that matters to you, you may want to consider the Vitamix over the Ninja. I will report back as soon as I humanly can! Awesome — thanks so much!
Will keep you posted! Carol — did you do any research to compare the Mega with the Vitamix? Does the single serve cup fit the Ninja ? I just want the single serve feature. Hi, thank you for your quick and helpful answers. I had a pineapple and some bananas and put those in with some milk, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar and it was very good. Very quick and very thin, I also made some a little chunkier and it was great, I enjoyed being able play with it and figure how thick and thin or chunky I wanted it.
As far as the stuff going into the handle, mine had no signs of it!! And having the lid sit on the counter and the mess, I just put it upside down to rest on the handle and no mess! Thanks for writing your informative review! However, you can download my eBook for free today and tomorrow from Amazon: If you want a cookbook from the Ninja Folks, I would recommend going on their Facebook page and asking them how to get one. I have seen them reply to people, so that may work.
Thanks for all the great information, recipes and reviews you provide! Have read numerous posts here re: I was doing some google searches and came across this site from Ninja. Just discovered this site while looking for Ninja recipes.
I recently a Ninja system watt from QVC. My new lifestyle is very similar to the needs of a type 2 diabetic. Are you planning a recipe series geared toward that?
Bariatric patients have specific needs. Would be awsome if you did that. I probably gear a little more to higher protein and fat, lower carb, as I have eliminated almost all grains and use very little sugar. Good luck to you, and thanks for your note! Thank you for responding. I forgot to ask if you have reviewed that one. In reading all the posts, I did not see any watt owners. The majority seems to be watts. I sure have — here is my Ninja Pulse review. I just gave one to my mother-in-law as well because I like it so much.
