Ninja Master Prep Blender Review

Chocolate Protein "Ice Cream" in 30 seconds!
I just made chocolate ice cream in 30 seconds in my new Ninja Master Prep Blender. Yes. Really! I'm sitting here at the computer eating ice cream with a spoon. Protein ice cream, no less!  I am seriously shocked and amazed - this Ninja thing is way more than I ever expected. I think YOU need one too!

Apparently there's an infomercial for this thing but I've never seen it (here's a video review of the Ninja). The first time I saw the Ninja was while browsing the appliance section at Walmart a few months and then I heard some folks talking about it on OH a while ago. I've been intrigued and interested. Finally tonight I caved and made an impulse buy at Meijer. It was $39.99 plus tax. You can also buy it on Amazon.

So basically the Ninja is a high powdered blender with a double set of blades that essentially turns ice into snow. No, not just crushed ice, but actually into snow! The motor sits on the top of the blender jar and you get two different jars - a large 48-ounce jar and a small 24-ounce bowl. It's a simple concept. And it just works and does exactly what it claims to do.

I'm anxious to experiment with the recipes in the cookbook that was included. Lots of ideas for dips and marinades along with smoothie and icy ideas.

When I started this experiment, I was expecting to make just a normal everyday chocolate protein shake. Imagine my delight when that shake turned into soft-serve ice cream right before my eyes! Here's how I did it:

Chocolate Protein Ice Cream Shake

3/4 to 1 cup milk
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 teaspoon chocolate pudding powder mix
1 tablespoon Splenda
plenty of ice (1 to 2 cups depending on how thick you want it)

Place all ingredients in the large blender jar and attach the Ninja Master Pod (the motor) to the top and pulse until all ice is pulverized (when you no longer hear the ice clinking around) - and then let it whirl for a moment longer. Seriously this takes about 30-60 seconds. It's so fast!

This recipe makes a LOT of ice cream. I could only finish about half of it and the other half went into the freezer for later.

I highly recommend the Ninja Master Prep Blender!  This this is awesome.



  1. I just ordered this off the website.
    Free shipping if you ship it to the store for pick-up. Total with tax $42.36. I cant wait until it arrives. Thanks Pam, I would not have known about this product if not for you.

    I bought one today. Thanks for the post. I had been looking at this because I like to make a protein frappucino every morning and the magic bullet just isn't big enough to handle it and it doesn't blend consistently. I made a frap today after I bought it and made shakes for my sons, and made a fruit protein shake tonight with it. Glad I bought it. It is also easy to clean. Thanks Pam!

  3. @Tressa -- you'll have to let me know how your like it and what recipes you try out.

    @redheadjean -- I put my iced protein coffee mixture into the Ninja yesterday with a bunch of ice. Definitely a great frappa maker! It was so yummy! I want to try some of the non-shake recipes next.
