A few weeks back we took delivery of a new kitchen gadget. Now I am a huge fan of kitchen gadgets and this one has jumped to the top of my favourites list!
We received the Nutri Ninja BL682 Blender System, this bundle has everything you need in the kitchen to make most things!
In the box you get :
- 1.8L Food Processor Bowl
- 1.8L Food Processor Bowl Lid
- 2.1L Blender Pitcher
- 4 Blade Assembly
- 6 Blade Assembly
- 500ml Cup
- 650ml Cup
- Blender Pitcher Lid
- 2 Ninja Sip and Seal Lids
- Pro-Extractor Blades
- BL682UK Motor Base
We are just getting to grips with everything the machine can do but let me just give you an idea of the options you can make with this machine :
- Baby Food
- Pro Extractor blades make juicing easy
- Pizza Dough – more on this in a bit
This is just some of the amazing things you can make.
Later in the week the kids and I are going to be making our own pizza dough from the recipe book that comes with the machine. It is a great little book to get you started on some basic juicing recipes and dips.
The machine has lots of great features such as the auto buttons which allow you to pop everything in and just simply press the button for it to do it all for you! Plus if you remove the blender or pitcher from the base, it auto turns the machine off.
Our first thing we did make however was milkshakes. The heat last week was perfect weather for home-made milkshakes so we popped on the blender pitcher and got started.
With this machine, everything is simple to pop on and off which makes it very interchangeable with little stress. The only warning I will give you is the blades are really sharp (yes I cut myself on the first day!) however this makes it perfect for crushing ice in your cocktails or smoothies!
Our favourite milkshakes so far are Oreo or strawberry. Which one would be your favourite?
- 5 Oreo biscuits
- 5 scoops of vanilla ice cream
- Pour in milk to the 8oz marker on the blender
- Add the ice cream and biscuits
- Press the frozen drinks/smoothie button then wait for it to finish
- Pour and enjoy
I am looking forward to seeing what else we can make as we use our machine and make sure you pop back as we will be sharing more drinks and food recipes with you.
