Ninja Blender

A long, long time in a galaxy far, far away1, I asked Twitter what blender I should buy2. There were several suggestions and much debate, but in the end I decided to get a Ninja blender, and only partly because it has an awesome name. It got great reviews for its blending power and I found it on sale at Canadian Tire, where I could get the blender with a jug plus an attachment and several blending cups so that it can be like a magic bullet for making smoothies in, only way more powerful than a magic bullet3 – for the price of just the regular blender and jug. That’s $50 off! And you know how much I like a deal!

The main reason I wanted a blender was to be able to make hummus and spinach & cilantro rice, the latter of which involves blending up spinach, cilantro, and parsley with vegetable stock and then cooking rice in that. It looks like this when you blend it4:

So far, I’m pretty pleased with my Ninja. I haven’t yet tried out the crushed ice setting, but perhaps that is something I can do in the new year!

  1. This is one of those postings that was in my Drafts folder, as just a title, that I mentioned in my last blog posting. []
  2. My ex owned a blender when we moved in together and my magic bullet blender was on its last legs, so I got rid of it. When my ex became my ex, I then had no blender. []
