Quick and Easy Orange Banana Slushie
Do you own a Ninja Food Processor?
One of the most important tools you can have for a healthy lifestyle is a Ninja Food Processor. If you love healthy drinks, desserts, soups and dips you can not possibly go wrong with a Ninja Food Processor. The motor is powerful enough to turn the ice cubes in this recipe to snow and most models come with a large pitcher perfect for this recipe.
The Ninja also comes with smaller containers and is ideal for grounding your own coffee beans. The main consideration is to make sure how finely ground you want your coffee to be since it is easy to over do it.
- 1 Banana, Ripened
- 1 Orange, The larger ones work best
- 11 Ice cubes
- 1 cup, Stevia Sweetener
- Peel one large Orange and one ripened Banana. I choose the larger navel bananas because they yield more liquid for this recipe. You can also only add half of a banana if you want to keep sugar in this recipe low.
- Place both fruits into a Ninja processor and pulse until liquified. This takes a few minutes to do. When you pulse you are looking for a change in sound, which is a good indicator your ice is becoming finely crushed, however you may want to check with a fork or spoon to see if there are a few larger pieces remaining. If there are you continue pulsing until smooth.
- Add in 1 cup of Stevia Sweetener and pulse again to mix well. Stevia sweetener works well for this recipe. However you may not want to use any additional sweetener at all. If using regular sugar you would reduce to 1/2 cup of sugar.
- Add in 10-12 icecubes and continue to pulse until ice cubes are well granulated. This may seem too specific for this recipe but after some trial and error, this amount seems to work best and does not over-crowd your Ninja.
