High performance blenders are now in demand because of all the detox-diets that dominate bookshelves and world wide web.

To my surprise, the Ninja Kitchen System 1100 provided mostly every option I wanted in a blender and food processor, costing only $160.00 in comparison to others at $450.00 plus. I tested my Super Green Smoothie recipe (see below) to gage if the RPM’s were strong enough to pulsate the fibers in all the veggies I add. Sure enough, not only did the Ninja break down the veggie fibers, the smoothie was also frothy–a huge plus in the world of smoothie and vegetable juicing.
