The warm weather is upon us and with the summer sun out and the kids and I spending a lot of our time out enjoying the weather and playing in the water. With the hot weather, I like to find ways to cool down by making cold drinks and treats for everyone to enjoy. So when we were sent the Ninja® Blender DUO™ With Auto-iQ™ to review, I was excited to create some refreshingly cold summer treats and drinks!
With us being in the PNW, we are able to go in our backyard and find and pick the berries to add to our drinks like when we make berry smoothies and such. And with smoothies being a huge hit in my house for both breakfast and snacks, we decided to make some Fresh Berry Smoothie Pops with our Ninja® Blender DUO™ With Auto-iQ™.
For the Fresh Berry Smoothie Pops:
2 cups berries
2 cups plain yogurt
2 cups ice
1/2 cup apple juice or orange juice
Once you have your ingredients, put them all in the Ninja® Blender DUO™ With Auto-iQ™ and use the Frozen Drinks and Smoothies button. After blended pour even amounts of the smoothie mix in popsicle molds and freeze. We left ours in overnight to enjoy at snack time the next day!
Along with being able to easily and perfectly blend smoothies every time we use our Ninja® Blender DUO™ With Auto-iQ™, I like that we can use the cups that came with our Ninja, allowing us to take the smoothies to go. I also like that with the various modes, I can create various blended drinks, sauces and more. Then when it comes to the guessing game on how long to blend, what setting to put it on and such, I really like that the Ninja® Blender DUO™ With Auto-iQ™, makes blending very simple! Making the Ninja® Blender DUO™ With Auto-iQ™ a great appliance to have in any home when it comes to your blending needs!
