This purchase decision was based on the qualified recommendation of a close friend with a 1600-watt smoothie maker and nutrient extractor. The same friend recently converted to a Vegan diet from a meat-rich diet after researching nutritional facts from trusted MD sources. Each morning my friend starts the day with a smoothie comprised of banana, frozen blueberries, strawberries, 100% pomegranate juice, ginger, garlic, spinach, Kale, a slice of organic gala apple, Chia, and Flax seeds. This smoothie tastes amazing and provides a balanced, nutrient and fiber-rich start to each new day. In the interest of full disclosure, based on observations of my friend’s Ninja, I was already sold on the value of Ninja blender/food processing systems. They are a great value and work well for everything from Smoothies and shakes to hummus and moussaka.
The Nutri Ninja Blender made a great first smoothie out of the box. No issue with the plugin and start. The great thing about Auto IQ boost and the Smoothie setting is one may trust that each time you press start, you will receive a great smoothie 60 seconds later. This has held from the first smoothie to today, after more than 120 smoothies were made.

Amazing so happy I purchased it! It says it has texture control, and it does. No matter what I added, as long as I selected a smoothie, it came out as perfect. I made an Acai bowl, also. I pressed the bowl, and it came out thicker so I could eat it with a spoon. The power behind this blender is the same as the blender restaurants use. Best blender I have ever worked with. Very EASY to clean, and you don’t have to switch out different blades. One blade for everything. The BEST!
