Ninja Blender Recipes Collection
Whether it be your birthday, a house-warming gift, or merely a pay-day treat, the day you purchase a Ninja blender is the day you take charge of your life – or your mornings at least. If you haven’t explored the wonders of online shopping, now is the time to start and get going on exploring your kitchen creativity with these recipes!
Blenders are for more than just making delicious smoothies. So, through some careful research, we’ve compiled a list of some of the top Ninja blender recipes for you to try out next time you’re in your kitchen.
Ninja Blender Recipes Collection
The first on the list of Ninja blender recipes is none other than a delicious salsa, the product of a powerful blender appliance. If this is the year you decided to make it all about being budget-friendly, a salsa side will suit you perfectly.
Give the restaurants a miss in favor of a “restaurant-styled” home dinner party that is both delicious while still making use of the items in your pantry.
1 can of whole peeled tomatoes
1-2 cloves of garlic
¼ teaspoon salt
½ a small red onion
2 tablespoons of lime juice
2 medium-sized chilies
1 cup of cilantro
1 squeeze of lemon
Serves up to 4 cups of delicious salsa in 15 minutes.
One thing to love about this Ninja blender recipe is how simple it is. Chop up the onion, garlic, and chilies according to your preference. Everything will go into the blender, so the extent to how finely you chop these up is not a significant concern. The only specification we would advise is to finely chop the cilantro to disperse it more widely throughout the mix.
Salsa is an excellent fit for a Ninja appliance as it’s powerful capabilities mean very little work for you. Simply put on the lid and pulse the mixture in short 1-second bursts, occasionally opening it up to stir the missed areas at the bottom of the jug. This part is highly subjective – your salsa is ready when you are happy with the consistency. A longer pulse will result in a smoother mixture, but you may prefer to opt for a chunky mix.
The best part of the making-process has arrived: tasting the salsa! You may want to invite another household member to give a fresh perspective on the taste and whether you should add a little more of an ingredient. Once this part is done, move the mixture to your serving bowl, give a quick squeeze of lemon over the top, and pop it into the fridge.
Although you could serve this right away, we recommended allowing it to chill for up to 30 minutes before serving. This will also give the flavors some time to blend together into a delicious mix.
If you are somehow able to resist the temptation to devour it all at once, this mixture can be kept in the fridge in an airtight container for at least a week.
Homemade Yogurt – Dairy-free
For all the lactose-intolerant or vegan individuals out there, here is a dairy-free, everyday ‘yogurt’ recipe for you. This is another easy-to-make item on the list of recipes for Ninja blender appliances. In just 15 minutes, you can start your morning off with a little extra deliciousness.
1/2 a cup of refrigerated coconut cream
½ teaspoon of lemon juice (Fresh where possible)
½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
2-3 berries of choice (You can also substitute berries for your choice of soft fruit, such as bananas)
Although this recipe will be tasty as is, an extra teaspoon of raw honey or date paste can be a healthy, yet tasty, additional that will sweeten your ‘yogurt’.
Makes up to 2 servings.
Throw your selected fruit into the blending jug and pulse them just enough so that everything is mashed together. Following this, you can add in all the remaining ingredients and blend it until everything is mixed in and the texture is thick and creamy. If you leave it for just a little longer, you can come out with a thinner mixture, so it really is dependent on your preference.
Add this into your granola or muesli and enjoy!
Curried Butternut Soup
For those winter months when your home apparel takes the form of slippers, sweatpants, and large blanket coverings, a butternut soup bowl might just be the thing you need for a happy night in.
With the help of a Ninja appliance, you can easily turn one of the top Ninja blender recipes into a hot, tasty soup meal for dinner times with your family or household members.
1 Whole butternut (6 cups)
1 large onion
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 can of coconut milk
1 tablespoon coconut oil
¼ teaspoon of salt and black pepper
¼ teaspoon of cinnamon
2 cups vegetable stock
1 tablespoon of curry powder
This hearty, warm soup can be prepared in 40 minutes and serve up to 4 people. If you like to meal prep, this is also a great meal that can be kept for 3 – 4 days or frozen for up to 1 month.
Dice and cube the butternut, ensuring that all the skin and seeds are removed. Store-bought cubed butternut may save you time here. Add the oil, onion, and garlic to a pot and sauté it for 2 minutes while stirring frequently. After this, add the butternut to your pot and all the seasoning. Ensure that everything is covered before allowing it to cook for 4 minutes.
Stir in the coconut milk and vegetable stock and bring everything to a boil. Once it is boiling, reduce the heat and allow it to simmer until the butternut is softened. A tasty extra (but not necessary) step is to finely chop some chives and add them in at this point. Then, pour the soup into the blending appliance and purée until the mixture is creamy and smooth.
Transfer the soup back into the pot and heat it up on low heat. Use this opportunity to make some final adjustments on salt and pepper, and voila! Just like that, the butternut soup is ready.
Of course, no list would be complete without a smoothie recipe. If you have something like a Nutri Ninja Blender, which is more specialized for making smoothie recipes, there are many different, delicious combinations to try.
One of our favorite Ninja blender recipes is is the coffee smoothie we’ve outlined below. This delicious drink is perfect for mornings on-the-go or when you need a yummy caffeine boost at any time of the day.
¾ cup brewed coffee chilled
1 frozen chopped banana
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup milk (According to preference, you can substitute your milk with coconut/ dairy milk)
½ tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon peanut butter
Additional extras: Chia seeds for extra fiber and healthy fats. Oats to help thicken and add heartiness to your smoothie). Hemp seeds (for healthy fats, omega, and minerals). These are always healthy extras to any smoothie recipe.
When you’re preparing your morning cup of coffee, add just a little more coffee to your plunger. This brew can then be left in the fridge for up to 30 minutes or even longer. If you didn’t have the time to prepare for this, two shots of instant coffee with hot water alongside a few blocks of ice (between 2-4) also work well to provide that additional cooling element.
The next step is to combine all the smoothie ingredients into the blending jug. You may be feeling slightly skeptical of the appliance’s ability to crush ice. However, the powerful motors and pro extractor blades of Ninja blenders should put your mind at ease that these blenders are more than capable of taking care of crushing.
Smoothie preferences differ from one person to the next so you may choose to add some more water or milk here and there. Once you are satisfied with the consistency of the smoothie, serve, and enjoy.
Coconut Bliss Ice Cream
This has got to be one of our favorite recipes and is one that you can whip up in no time. Well, in about 10 minutes to be precise. Not only is this recipe healthy, but it is also quite scrumptious.
It provides ice cream servings of up to 3 cups for everyone in your household to enjoy, or just for you.
½ a can coconut milk
½ teaspoon of vanilla
2 frozen, diced bananas
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
With a little foresight needed in terms of freezing the bananas ahead of time, this is something that can be done as soon as you purchase the bananas. Take them out of the freezer, add in all the other ingredients to your Ninja appliance, and start pulsing. Ideally, everything should be blended until it is thick and creamy.
To complete the ice-cream process, transfer the mixture to a loaf pan and freeze it for about 4 hours before serving. This will cause the yogurt-like mixture to harden into delicious ice-cream.
If you’re looking for an appliance to try out some new recipes, Ninja blender products should be at the top of your list. Available in different compact sizes, these blenders are high-powered and save you a lot of time when preparing meals. They are designed to include innovative, up-to-date technology to cater to all your needs.
