This recipe will only take 3 minutes of your time to make, leaving you with a fresh, tangy, spicy vinaigrette that tastes wonderful on a fresh salad.

Well flavored, you’ll probably find that the vinaigrette tastes and looks like it has cream in it. Weirdly, despite this taste, it doesn’t.

This is great for us though because the extra flavors without the addition of more calories is brilliant.

The smoothie is made using blueberries, apple, red cabbage, celery, water, watermelon, and ice. 

It’s mostly sweet, with a subtle undertone of tanginess. The veggies also provide an underlying earthiness.

Don’t worry though, this earthiness doesn’t reduce the overall brightness of the juice.

14. Ninja Blender Emerald Green Elixir

With a name like emerald green elixir, we couldn’t possibly leave this smoothie off our list of Ninja Blender recipes.

Another fantastic green smoothie, this vibrant drink is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals.

For those on a diet, why not spread it on your toast instead? 

17. Homemade Hazelnut Chocolate Spread

You can even use your Ninja Blender to make your own homemade hazelnut chocolate spread.

This recipe is from the Vitamix website, but it works perfectly in a Ninja Blender too.

To make this hazelnut chocolate spread, you need peanut oil, toasted and skinless hazelnuts, milk chocolate chips, and bittersweet or dark chocolate chips. 

Once you have all of those ingredients, you can blend the ingredients together to create a super sweet, slightly crunchy, and smooth chocolate spread.

You can then use the spread on toast or to make a tasty chocolate dessert. We like to top a chocolate cake with our homemade hazelnut chocolate spread.

18. Pineapple Strawberry Kale Smoothie

If you’re on the lookout for a tropical, sweet, and tangy-tasting smoothie that’s full of flavor, refreshing, vibrant, and packed with healthy vitamins and minerals, look no further than the pineapple strawberry kale smoothie recipe from Damn Delicious.

To make the smoothie, you need coconut milk, raw almonds, spinach, cacao powder, shredded coconut, coconut extract, banana, honey, and ice.

Add honey to the smoothie if you want to neutralize the tartness of the blueberries.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Make Hot Soups In A Ninja Blender?

You’ll be pleased to hear that yes, you can make hot soups in a Ninja Blender. However, it’s worth noting that not every Ninja Blender is capable of doing so.

You’ll first need to make sure your blender has a heating feature. If it does, you’re good to go.

Is The Ninja Blender As Good As Vitamix?

The debate as to which brand makes the best blender has been going on for many years. Generally speaking, Vitamix blenders are considered the best.

However, there are things that Ninja Blenders do better. For example, the Ninja Blender has a built-in heat element. They are also easier to clean.

Having said that, Vitamix blenders are usually more powerful and made to a higher standard.

What Is The Lifespan Of A Ninja Blender? 

If looked after and well-cleaned after use, a Ninja Blender should last you at least 2 to 3 years.

However, there’s no specific time frame that your blender will stop working after. If you care for it well, it could last many more years.
