Remember making that New Year’s Resolution to eat and live healthier in 2014? Perhaps like many people you’ve strayed off track, it’s time to change that and feel better about yourself for the decisions you’re about to make… The decision to win the new Ninja Blender from DealDash and resolve to start making “green smoothies.”
Tired of your blenders always breaking or ice cubes left uncrushed? The Ninja 1200 is equipped with 6 stacked precision razor-sharp blades and a 1200 watt motor. The Ninja 1200 is a much more affordable alternative to the famous Blendtec and VitaMix blenders and can handle high performance blended, pureeing, ice crushing and food processing. The Ninja 1200 is high powered enough to virtually mash anything you put in it within seconds..

My favorite reason for owning a high powered blender would have to be that it’s quick and easy to make not only protein shakes, soups, and salad dressings, but green smoothies! Green smoothies are an easy way to get more greens in your diet. Green smoothies can be a mix of greens and fruit, are super easy to make and can actually taste quite good!
