Excellent Book. And Ninja Blender Handbook Recipes work with any Power Blender!
on April 1, 2013
If your blender makes great smoothies, you can also use these recipes. Author Angela Brobst produced a great little book of nutrition boosting recipes, complete with nutritional info breakdown. The cover page reads "Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting to Make the Most of Your Ninja Blender - and delivers. She states she's not affiliated with Ninja - but they should put her on their payroll or at least give her a lifetime supply of Ninja Blenders. I never thought I could do so much with my Ninja Pulse and really appreciate her modifications for its smaller size.
Inside Angela Brobst's book...
