This girl got a NutriBlend for Christmas!! =D 

Does anyone else blend?

Any good beginner/easy blends to do?

How has blending been for you?

Tonight I did my first blend --Spinach, strawberries, blueberries, banana, almonds & water... My DD who is SUPER picky drank a small glass full. She has no clue spinach was in there--- or else she wouldnt have even tried it! It would be awesome if I could get some blends going & get my kids to drink them to get more veggies in their diet..

I do. Just throw whatever you have in there. My favorite is frozen mango, spinach, celery, cucumber, orange juice, and ginger. My kids like them with mixed berries.
I try to have one or two a day during the week and have noticed I feel better (happier/more energy).

I got a Ninja, and have been blending the shit out of everything, just to sample what it taste like. 

My new favorite is:

1/2 an avocado, 1/2 a grapefruit, 1 sliced frozen banana, a tsp of ground ginger (didn't have any fresh) 1 Tbsp honey, and 2 TBSP ground flax seed. 

Sounds gross, but I promise you it's creamy and delicious.

Yesterday I made a "PB&J" smoothie for breakfast. It was delicious!

1/2 cup almond butter, 1 cup almond milk, 1 frozen, sliced banana and 1/2 cup frozen strawberries. 

Today, I'm either going to try coconut milk, mango, banana, pineapple or strawberry kiwi kale. Maybe I'll try both. I'm really in love with my Ninja blender.

My life was so incomplete without my Ninja Mega. It's the greatest invention ever.
