Ninja Food Processor Information & Review
The Ninja Master Prep Food Processor
Have you seen the commercials for the ninja Master Prep Food Processor? It's so quiet it's hard to believe it can really do what it says it does.
Usually, when you fill up your blender with ice and turn it on, it sounds like a jumbo jet is trying to land on your kitchen counter. But the Ninja is almost eerily quiet.
It's also amazingly fast, pulverizing a whole container of ice in just a matter of seconds. This powerful food processor has fearfully sharp blades that pull the pieces in so everything in the container gets chopped or processed. Nothing is allowed to 'sink to the bottom' of this Ninja food processor.
Mince, dice, chop, blend and puree up to two times faster with this 450W motor.

What Else Can The Ninja Food Processor Do?
The first thing they show you in the ads is the Ninja Master's ability to turn thick, clunky ice cubes into snow, and they keep coming back to this throughout the commercial. But, while that's a pretty nifty feature, if you're going to buy yet another kitchen gadget, it better do a lot more than just chop up some ice, right?
Well, the Ninja does much more than pulverize ice.
- You can use it to chop vegetables for salsa or cooking recipes.
- You can use it to purée fruits and vegetables for soups or baby foods.
- You can use the Ninja to make sauces and dips and you can even use it to make doughs, like pie crust dough or bread dough.
- You can also use it to make Smoothies and frozen drink concoctions. And you can make a variety of juices as well.
So go ahead. Leave it out there on the counter all the time. You're going to be using the Ninja a lot.

Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender
The Ninja sharp blades on the Ninja Master Prep really do pulverize ice in as little as 30 seconds - just like they show you in all the ads.
And when you compare that to a regular blender that starts coughing and sputtering and literally smoking and still doesn't crush the ice then you know you're looking at a powerful machine that's much more than just a blender.
And if you're a Smoothie Lover then you know what a pain it is to try to keep your blender clean. With some of the new blenders you can't even remove the blade so you have to try to get your fingers up under it to clean.
But the Ninja Master Prep can be completely dis-assembled and all the pieces are dishwasher safe.

- 2 Peaches; peeled and pitted
- 2 Bananas; chunked
- 1 cup Orange juice
- 2 cups Ice
Basic Smoothie Recipe For Your Food Processor
This is a basic smoothie recipe but you can really use any fruits you have on hand. Use blueberries or raspberries to replace the strawberries or leave out the banana.
Add a handful of roasted almonds or a tablespoon of peanut butter for more protein.
For a thicker, creamier smoothie add 3/4 cup of plain or vanilla yogurt. Or add even more flavor with Strawberry yogurt.
Experiment and have fun! There's no such thing as a smoothie catastrophe! They all taste great!
