This is my new Ninja Mega Kitchen System. If you've seen the infomercial, then you know how awesome it is. I mainly wanted it for its juicing capabilities, but it has a lot of other cool features too, and I'm looking forward to trying them out in the weeks to come.
Since pretty much everything in my house is a family event, the inaugural run of the Ninja was no different. We decided to make orange cream smoothies (because we happened to see someone making them while demonstrating a similar machine the day before, and the kids loved them.)
It was very simple to make, and the kids were happy to be able to help.
The machine worked great, and really did crush the ice like the infomercials say it does. (Of course I forgot to take a picture of that part.) But it really did turn out nicely.
And most of us thought it was yummy.
Unfortunately not everyone was as thrilled with the outcome.
You can't please everyone, I suppose. But we'll definitely have some fun trying out different recipe ideas and finding things that we all like.
