Is there anything more refreshing than a fruit smoothie blended to perfection?
The experience really relies on the texture, which is so hard to get at home with any normal blender that you can find in a grocery. Since the professional-grade blenders used in juiceries and restaurants can be extremely expensive, buying one is often out of the question.
But right now, a top-rated 1000 Watt Ninja professional blender mixer is $15 off, and just $69 at Walmart. It’s been known that a Ninja with this kind of power is just as good (if not better) than a $350 Vitamix, making this an amazing deal you want to take advantage of.
A great accessory to any kitchen, the Ninja can blend up anything from fruit to ice to veggies to broths in just seconds at the speed you want.
The 72-ounce professional blender comes with “total crushing technology,” which promises to pulverize anything you put inside, whether it be ice, veggies, fruits or nuts. The blender includes three different speeds plus a pulse setting, ensuring that your ingredients combine into the exact texture you want.
Shoppers love the blender, saying the affordable option still gives professional, smooth results. “The Ninja rocks," a happy customer said. "I purchased a cheaper blender before this one and returned it. The Ninja will power through frozen bananas like a boss. I can walk away from it while it is turning my frozen items into a smoothie and it stays put. And, it holds a lot in the large pitcher."
Another said: "Ninja blender is so awesome! Easy to install and put together. It's a little heavy but it works great for making lots of things. Made a blueberry smoothie and the blender worked amazing. Also it has a good pour out spout. it was very easy to use. The best part was that it was easy to clean. Love that it was powerful."
This deal is only on for the rest of this week. Take advantage of it while you can!
