Everyone needs a great blender in the kitchen. I think we can all agree how awesome blenders technology has become. Blenders used to be limited to adjustable settings for faster or slower blending. Things have changed a lot! The Ninja Chef DUO 1500-Watt Blender has Auto-iQ technology to enable one-touch blending of your favourite recipes. In addition it has a clean program that helps removed food residue from beneath the blades. Best of all: Best Buy is giving away 3 of these great blenders in this contest!

You will be blown away by the features of the Ninja Chef DUO. One of my pet-peeves with older blenders was the small jar: I could never make enough in one batch for my two children and myself. Problem solved since the Ninja has a huge 72 oz. blender pitcher. Okay, perhaps you don’t always need something big. Like if you’re creating your personal favourite smoothie—you don’t want to use a huge blender for that. Problem solved: the Ninja comes with a 24oz. slim high-speed blender cup.


What will you create first if you win a Ninja Blender

If I had the Ninja blender, I’d whip up a banana-strawberry smoothie like I used to when my kids were little, with one or two fresh banana and a cup of strawberries I had frozen in advance. My daughter loved this with a splash of milk back then, but now that she is vegan I would substitute cashew milk.

What is your favourite smoothie recipe? Perhaps you like to keep things simple like me, or do you like to experiment and mix it up?


You can only enter once for this contest. In a comment below, tell us what your favourite healthy smoothie recipe is. Include as much detail as we would need to create it ourselves. That is all there it to it!

The contest runs from December 11th until December 23rd.
