This recipe was adapted from the Ninja Blender Inspiration Guide that I received with my fantastic Ninja blender. I don’t know what I ever did without it! Oh yes, I remember now, start the blender, stop it to push the fruit down, start it again, stop it & push…well you get the idea. Now that I am using my Ninja, I just put all the ingredients in and it whips it together in seconds. Woohoo! I am doing a happy dance every time I use it. Check the Ninja Ultima out here. You won’t be sorry!
