Today’s product review is brought you courtesy of Canadian Tire, who provided eieihome.com with a Ninja Professional Blender to review for our readers. In addition to a product review, today’s article will also feature a fun, healthy and family friendly recipe that makes the most of the Ninja Blender’s features.
- Motor Base +72 oz Main Pitcher
- Detachable Blade Component
- 2x Portable Ninja Cups with lids
This blender was incredibly easy to set up and use. It includes five different settings for use with either the main pitcher, the smaller Ninja cups, or both.
These settings are succinctly explained in the instruction manual and also include an explanation of the types of foods and preparations that can be created under each setting, which I found particularly useful.
Among the available settings includes a special Nutri Ninja © mode which is meant to blend whole fruits, vegetables and ice into nutrient-dense drinks.
Considering we all could use more fruits and vegetables in our lives, I decided to put this mode to the test in creating today’s feature recipe a Tropical Smoothie Bowl (see end of article for full recipe).
In creation my smoothie bowl, I found the blender to be incredibly sturdy (aided by suction cups on the motor base), powerful and easy to clean. It locked into place very well and the final product was as hoped for and expected.
The portable Ninja Cups that come with the blender mean you can easily take your smoothies to go on a busy morning.

The eieihome Tropical Smoothie Bowl
What You Need
¼ cup vanilla yogurt
½ cup kale
½ cup frozen strawberries
1 tbsp. sunflower seeds
½ cup ice
2 tbsp water
How We Prepared It
It is easy as 1,2,3 really.
We placed the ingredients in one of the Nutri Ninja cups, pressed the fruit/veggie specific Nutri Ninja © setting, and blended till smooth.
The result was a perfectly blended smoothie with no unexpected chunks left in the mix. For anyone who has every blended kale, you know just how amazing it is to have a blender that breaks the tough leaves down with ease.
Now, if you aren’t familiar with smoothie bowls, it is essentially a smoothie that you eat with a spoon. In addition to the blended fruit/veggie mix, various toppings are added to the bowl to take it from sippable to spoonable. For this recipe, we topped the smoothie bowl with sunflower seeds, fresh strawberries, and banana slices.
