Ninja Master Prep Demo Day
I have Yankee Belle chef, Virginia Carmichael to thank for introducing me to the Ninja Master Prep. A mere $34 bucks it is better than any blender and simpler than any food processor for day to day mixing/blending needs.
Nothing to screw together and cause leakage. It’s easy to clean too. It comes with two containers, each with their own blade/s, blending lid and storage lid. Unlike a blender, the large container this has a pour spout. The pro version comes with three sizes, small, medium and large. If you scroll down the Amazon link it will compare the different types of product available.
The possibilities are ENDLESS from mixing cake batter and pancake mix, to omelets without dirtying a spatula and beaters. Youtube has numerous videos on the product usage.
My personal favorite is making low calorie iced coffee beverages.
Add leftover cold coffee (about a cup).
You can also add a dairy base of ¼ cup milk if you like or leave it dairy free. I usually leave it dairy free.
Add about 4 tablespoons chocolate syrup.
You can also add a package of sugar free hot chocolate mix instead of the syrup to really keep it low calorie.
This is Trenta size and it did not cost you five bucks.
We eat a lot of pico de gallo at my house, so my next Ninja experiment was to make my own.
I used a basic recipe found online: Remember you do not have to dice. The only prep work is to remove the seeds which I did using a grapefruit spoon.
1 1/2 cups seeded, tomatoes (I am using three Roma tomatoes)
1/4 cup red onion (I am using 1/8 of a very large onion)
1 tablespoon jalapenos (Remove seeds and wash hands carefully. I am using one half a medium jalapeno)
1 clove garlic
Juice of 2 limes
2 tablespoons cilantro, plus extra for garnish
Salt and pepper
Pulse about four times or to desired consistency. The more you pulse the more it becomes salsa like!
IT IS DELICIOUS!
If you’re looking for dessert try tossing a cup of yogurt and frozen strawberries in the Ninja for a nice soft serve ice cream treat!
