Whether you’re looking for a quick and convenient breakfast option or a healthy, flavorful substitute for dessert, these Ninja Blender recipes can help.
The Ninja Blender is a high-powered, professional blender that’s pretty much the top of the line when it comes to smoothie-making small appliances.
Because these are Ninja Blender recipes, your best bet, of course, is to make them in a Ninja Blender.
However, you could make most of them in any standard blender or smoothie maker.
If your blender isn’t the same size as a Ninja Blender, though, you may have to adjust the recipe to make it fit your specific appliance.
Any child of the 80s or 90s can tell you that orange creamsicles are the bomb. (A little 90s throwback for you.)
And this smoothie tastes just like an orange creamsicle.
It’s fresh, packed with vitamin C, and has that smooth, creamy vanilla and orange juice flavor that made creamsicles so delicious.
You’ll also get hints of bananas and peaches, which will make it taste even better.
Green smoothies are somewhat hit or miss in my experience.
Sometimes, they taste good, and at other times, you just have to close your eyes, hold your nose, and knock them back.
This six-ingredient green smoothie is one of the good ones.
You’ll make it with spinach, kale, unsweetened almond milk, frozen tropical fruit mix (mangoes, kiwi, pineapples), ginger, and lemon juice.
The ginger adds some depth to the overall taste, and the tropical fruit medley drowns out the bitterness from the spinach and kale.
It may be green, but it tastes tropical sunshine yellow.
Speaking of sunshine yellow, this sunrise super smoothie is a lightly sweet, orangey-yellow treat that’s a great way to start your morning.
Packed with protein, healthy fats, and enough citrus and pineapple to make it tasty, this is one smoothie that even the staunchest anti-smoothie individuals could enjoy.
The pink and green double layers of this smoothie will make you think of watermelons, but there are no watermelons in this seven-ingredient breakfast smoothie.
There are, however, strawberries, a pineapple, banana, apple juice, honey, milk, and kale.
It tastes so sweet and enjoyable that it’s hard to believe it’s good for you.
And don’t worry about the green layer on top.
That’s where most of the pineapple and banana end up, so it’s more tropical than healthy (at least as far as taste is concerned).
If you prefer your smoothies with a little less fruit and a lot more chocolate, this Almond Joy smoothie is probably more your speed.
You can whip it up in your Ninja Blender in just 5 minutes, and all you’ll need is coconut milk, raw almonds, cacao powder, spinach, coconut extract, shredded coconut, banana, ice, and honey.
It’s sweet, chocolatey, and full of coconut and almond yumminess – just like a real Almond Joy should be!
Whether you drink it first thing in the morning or enjoy it as a healthy dessert alternative, you won’t be disappointed.
Everyone who sees this bright purple drink will want to know what it is you’re drinking, and they’ll be in awe when you tell them it’s your 6-minute, 5-ingredient smoothie.
With apple juice, blueberries, vanilla Greek yogurt, a banana, mint sprigs, and more blueberries for a garnish, this drink is as tasty as it is beautiful.
It’s supremely fruity and tart enough to keep it from being overly sweet. If you’re a blueberry lover, this smoothie will really hit the spot.
Here’s another gorgeous purple drink; you’ll make this one with cherries, bananas, spinach, almond milk, and ice.
It’s nowhere near as tart as the blueberry smoothie, but it has a light sweetness that’s just as tasty in its own way.
The cherries and banana aren’t quite enough to completely mask the spinach, in my opinion, so I always add a dash or two of honey, as well.
This smoothie contains a lot of ingredients, and it’s definitely the kind of smoothie that you want a high-powered blender like the Ninja Blender to make.
It’s a bright green, ginger-heavy drink that’s a bit of an acquired taste.
I’ll be honest. It’s not the smoothie for everyone, but it’ll give you all kinds of amazing health benefits if you do like it.
There are just too many healthy ingredients in it for it not to.
For example, turmeric is an anti-inflammatory that may fight cancer, and kale is packed with fiber, iron, and vitamin A.
And those are just two of the 15 ingredients in this smoothie! Yeah, it’s a powerhouse.
This one may not have quite as many health benefits, but thanks to the four different berries, pineapple, and nonfat frozen yogurt, it has a ton of antioxidants and vitamins.
If you like your smoothies fruity and sweet, this one is a great option.
Between the blueberries, pineapple, raspberries, strawberries, and goji berries, there’s plenty of fruity goodness in it.
Here’s another 5-minute, Ninja-specific recipe that will load you up with antioxidants.
You’ll make it with an apple, blueberries, celery, red cabbage, watermelon, water, and ice.
It’s lightly sweet, has just a hint of tanginess, and has an underlying earthiness from the veggies that doesn’t dampen the overall brightness of the drink.
If you’re looking for a way to add more veggies to your diet and don’t mind tasting them just a little, this smoothie is an excellent choice.
This brownish-orange smoothie isn’t one of the prettiest on our list, but it does work wonders if you’re looking to boost your immune system and fight off illnesses.
It has a unique, bittersweet taste that’ll almost remind you of drinking a cocktail, only smoother and creamier.
The kiwi and tangerines add a bright burst of sweetness.
The grapefruit and goji berries, on the other hand, help tame those vibrant flavors somewhat.
Still, it’s not a bad-tasting drink, and it has numerous benefits that may help you feel better.
The stress buster orange smoothie may look like an incredibly thick glass of pulpy orange juice, but there’s a bit more to it than that.
There is orange juice in the smoothie, as well as an actual orange, but you’ll also add bananas, almond milk, vanilla extract, ice, and a carrot.
You can’t taste the carrot underneath all the fruit, but it does lend itself nicely to the color of the drink, which becomes a sharper, brighter orange after you add it.
It’s a tasty drink that’s great for fighting off colds, as it’s packed with vitamins B and C, beta-carotene, potassium, fiber, and calcium.
This green smoothie is tarter and tangier than most.
You’ll add a half-cup of spinach, but you’ll barely taste it under the kiwi, banana, white grape juice, honey, and ice.
It’s a lovely green, sweet and sour smoothie that’s perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
This hot pink smoothie is one of my favorites on the entire list, and if you like a mixture of tropical and tangy flavors, then you’ll love it, too.
You’ll start with a base of coconut milk and crushed ice, and to that, you’ll add frozen mixed berries, a frozen banana, Greek yogurt, and shredded coconut flakes.
The coconut and banana flavors come through strongly enough to have you singing about pina coladas and getting caught in the rain, but the berries add lots of tart tanginess, as well.
Of all the fun, flavorful ways to start your morning, this one is hard to top.
This drink is less of a smoothie and more of a shake.
However, since your only ingredients are bananas, cocoa powder, almond milk, coffee ice cubes, and cookie butter, it’s not as unhealthy as it could be.
It’s rich, decadent, and features the robust flavors of coffee, chocolate, and cookies.
This one works better as a dessert drink than a breakfast smoothie, but hey, you only live once!
If you want to enjoy a bit of decadence in the mornings, you do you!
This creamy, icy shake is a fantastic way to add more protein into your diet, no matter what meal you’re using it to replace.
I love this one because I’ve never been able to find a protein powder that I like.
Whether it’s the taste or texture, there’s always something about all of them that’s just not pleasing to my tastebuds.
With this one, though, I can’t taste (or feel) the powder at all. Instead, I taste bananas, mangoes, oranges, and just a hint of cinnamon.
It’s a truly delightful way to start the day.
The Ninja Blender raspberry mint lemonade smoothie is a tart and tangy, cool, and slushy treat that everyone – from kids to grandparents – will love.
You’ll use frozen raspberries, mint leaves, club soda, lemonade, powdered sugar, and ice.
Honestly, all it needs is a little dash of vodka or rum, and you’d have a fantastic summer cocktail on your hands.
Still, this non-alcoholic version is just as amazingly yummy and refreshing, though it won’t, of course, get you buzzed. (It may give you a sugar high, though!)
