Spice up your Cinco de Mayo with Ninja!

Spice up your Cinco de Mayo

I have to say that I am still in love with my Nutri Ninja Auto iQ. If you missed the review about this fabulous easy to use blender, you can check it out here. Another great Ninja product is the Nutri Ninja Blender, which is a larger version of the Nutri Ninja Auto iQ, which I received. Everything is the same, but of course the blender comes with a larger container, so that you can produce more product using the 72-ounce pitcher. I can’t tell you enough how much I have enjoyed my Ninja and literally use it for just about anything! Here are a couple of facts about the Nutri Ninja Blender.

  • Optimized for maximum nutrient and vitamin extraction and pulverizes fibrous vegetables, fruits, seeds, and nuts to an ultra-smooth consistency
  • Includes a 72-ounce pitcher, and 18-ounce, 24-ounce and 32-ounce Nutri Ninja® Cups with Sip & SealTM Lids
  • All detachable parts are dishwasher safe and BPA free
  • Available at major retailers nationwide, starting at $199.99 MSRP


As we all know today is Cinco De Mayo and it is time to celebrate with your family and friends. Using the Nutri Ninja Blender you are able to make stunning drinks and salsa’s to share during this time of celebration.
