Product Review: Ninja Pulse Blending System
I needed information on making green smoothies and found your site the most helpful. The Ninja I had died after only 4 months but I was able to get a full refund. They out did themselves when they redesigned it. It gets 5 Stars!!! I was disappointed that you book is only available through Amazon on kindle. Loved the pictures you shared from your vacation. My husband asked me tonight how long until we have an Ultima.
It gets the greens totally smooth? If that is the case, it may be sooner than later that I need to review that model! Thanks for getting back to me so quickly in regards to the book issue. My husband and I only recently upgraded our phones, Black Friday to be precise.
We are quite new to the whole app world. Yes, I really love my new Ninja. It makes the smoothie so much creamy than my older model did. I hated throwing away all the pulp. Felt like I was wasting more produce than I was consuming. I just printed out one of your smoothie recipes and need to run out and buy some cacao nibs. I was wondering do you plan on sharing pictures of your kitchen remodel? Thank you for the insights on the Ultima. I saw it at Target the other day and had to be dragged from the appliances aisle.
Believe it or not, we do not yet have a kitchen. I will definitely show pictures when we do. Somehow, however, the kitchen keeps getting de-prioritized, and while the shell is built, we are currently using it as a bedroom while we wrap up the actual bedrooms I wish I was kidding.
Luckily a lot of our meals come out of a blender. It is appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or tips. Maybe you could write next articles referring to this article. I want to read even more things about it! I am suprised nobody has mentioned that http: I just published it this week.
This will give you some insights into the Ultima, including a video of how well it makes a green smoothie: There are lots of online recipes for Ninja blenders, from my page to other bloggers and like you said, even the Ninja site, it just takes a little searching to find what you are looking for! I kind of wonder how many people have the recipe book, since it only comes with one model.
Ninja Mega Kitchen System videos, recipes, and tips: It depends on the model and the model of the prep system — they need to match.
Best thing to do would be to get on chat with Ninja and verify with them before you buy! I would love it if someone could tell me making tomato sauce what on the Ninja Mega kitchen system would I use and if I still need to peel tomatoes to make sauce?

If you still have peaches leftover, here are a couple more amazing recipes to use up all those peaches:. Products used and recommended in this post: Most awesome ice cream scoop ever Blender options: Add peaches and half the sweetened condensed milk to your blender or food processor and blend.
Give the mixture a taste and add more sweetened condensed milk as needed , until creamy. After reaching desired sweetness, add in optional ingredients if desired. The color of your frozen peaches will determine the color of your sherbet. Serve immediately as soft serve which is how we normally eat it. Or pour it into a freezer-safe container and let harden a few hours in the freezer.
If you leave it in the freezer too long and is too hard to scoop, just leave it on the counter for a few minutes and it will be perfect! For the kids Strawberry Ice Cream in a Bag.

This looks so yummy — and so easy to make. We don't get ripe peaches where I live until in the fall. I'll have to wait until then to make this using fresh peaches. I guess I could try canned peaches…. I have a link party that I'm trying to grow. I invite you to share this idea and a couple of others at my Grandma Ideas Sharing Time link party at http: My readers would LOVE this idea, too!
I know it's late on Friday. The jar of the Pulse is more than ample for one person, and the to-go cups allow for great versatality. I even use it to make peanut butter with no issues. So, you really get the best of both worlds.
I am very interested in making nut butters peanut and almond in the Ninja Pulse. Any other hints on making nut butters? Try out this coconut peanut butter I made it in the Pulse:.
When you juice, you can get the nutrients of 10 fruits or vegetables into one drink because you are leaving behind the woody parts of the fruit or vegetable.
With this, you are turning the entire thing into the drink, so you will be getting only the nutrients from like 3 fruits or vegetable. I am working on a post in a couple of days that you will definitely want to read. I am going to give away a Pulse. I love my Ninja Pulse. It crushes ice like snow. It crushes flax seeds into powder. Purees fruits and vegtables. I really appreciate this review and have had a most of my questions answered. How do the two compare in regards to salsa? I see the cookie salsa pic on the pulse,but what is the review??
To be totally honest I use the Pulse now way more than the KS because it is smaller and just so convenient! Thank you for the review on the Nijia Pulse. I have been considering buying something to juice with and I believe this will be much better on my wallet than the Montel Williams juicer that one of my friends has.
It is so expensive. I want to try and eat better and I think this will help. I have a very small kitchen so I like the fact that it is on the smaller side. I am glad I came across your site. Glad to be of help! And, it is way easier to clean than a juicer.
Thank you Angela for this really great site. I just got my Pulse yesterday with a terrific sale from Buy. It also came with the Pulse Recipe Cookbook which has recipes that you can alter the base recipes for unlimited recipe ideas.
It was a very timely delivery and came with nothing broken. This purchase has me wanting to experiment with healthy foods and it is more like fun than a chore. This was a gift to ME for all my hard work in the kitchen over the years. Now, I can do quick and easy treats for my grown kids and grandchildren. It also looks classy in the kitchen. Thanks again Angela, I am going to go through all your blogs and posts; I think you will teach me alot more about cooking with my Pulse.
Keep up the great work…. I love the way it crushes ice just like snow! My easy way was to buy a small size strainer that fits over my glass or cup and just pour direct from the pitcher to the cup.
And I was true to my word, Angela, I made ice cream with it firs!!! I was shocked because DH really liked it. What were the specific amounts you used for the ice cream? So glad I found it…. That is awesome Debbie! I think you will love it. In general, you need less liquid in the Ninja blenders than others because they are so powerful. It makes it easier to make ice cream facsimiles in your blender! I pulsed quickly about 3 times, then held it down for about seconds, until it looked right.
I think using too much liquid can make it soupier. Thanks so much for the prompt response, Debbie! What model do you have? I appreciate the response! How do you like it so far? Would love any and all comments! If you take a look at the photo that Angela included in her blog post, that is what I got as well.
Oh I see said the blind man! I gave my Procter-Silex blender to my daughter, so this is all I have. I can see where both would be handy! Boy, you two have had quite the conversation! Lyla, if I only had to choose one, I would go with the Pulse.
I absolutely love it, and its size is very convenient. If you are blending large quantities, the KS may suit you better, but for just one or two people, the Pulse will take care of you! I received the Breakthrough Blending! Cookbook yesterday in which they refer to the oz pitcher. So it appears this was a waste if I keep the Pulse?? I just make soft serve with the Ninja, and if I want hard ice cream, I put it in the freezer for a few hours. Thanks for the heads up about the ice cream, Angela!
I am so thankful I found your blog! Angela, thanks for the great review. When the magic bullet came out, I loved it. I came to find out that the motor burned out about every 9 months to a year. I purchased 4 magic bullets, over time and finally…after compiling untold number of lids and cups…etc…I just could not get a fifth.
I started buying knock off brands…that just did not perform to the magic bullet standards…I have been in limbo for the last 2 years…. Now…New hope springs forth! I reviewed the Ninja models for hours and as a guy, I was compelled to go large and get the BL with the watts…. In comparing the wattage of the Ninja Pulse with the magic bullet, I was impressed. The watts on the magic bullet are vigorous, while the watts of the pulse sound like a good old down right blue collar worker.
Thank you so much for your in depth review! I have you bookmarked and am looking forward to more great info from you, thanks.
If you are just blending for one the Pulse will suit you just fine. Thanks for the reply. The Pulse is by far, and there is not even a close second, the best mixer I have had for ice. I have used the magic bullet and full size blenders…and have always been dissatisfied, and worried about either burning up the motor, or breaking the mixing blade.
I have to say that I personally found the drinking lids ….. I noticed immediately upon opening the box, that there was a gap in the seal, as I could see light…. I found this odd, I mean, why not have the lid so that it would seal completely …with such a fine product? I almost returned the item without trying the Pulse…but I did try it and the performance of the Pulse outweighed the annoyance. To me the feature that makes the single blend option so nice, is the ease and speed, making it great for being on the go.
I am aware that the blender blades screw in and form a solid seal, but kind of awkward. I did send a comment to Ninja, asking them if they do have a solid lid that is available. I did find the drinking lid comfortable, with excellent flow….
The leaking lid is a mild distraction and there are simple ways of getting around it…. I am thrilled with the Pulse Thanks again Pete. I blend in the to-go cup a lot — but I pretty much never travel with it. I work from home most days, so I rarely have the reason to take it anywhere. I just blend, pop the lid on, and drink.
But, you are totally and completely right. Thanks for your input — I will adjust the review with this new information. Otherwise, I am glad you found the review useful! I try to provide honest and un-biased reviews, so, it is always nice to hear when people find them helpful!
Angela, thanks for the reply back. Took the pulse to work and showed the guys. They were impressed with the ability of the Pulse to break up Ice. I work in a boiler house, which, as you may imagine gets quite hot in the summer.
Look forward to reading your reviews in the future. So glad you like it. I enjoyed that you took it to work to show the guys — awesome! Cherry slurpees sound great! I did buy myself a Ninja Pulse, but saw that you had purchased several NutriBullets in the past. I was wondering if you still have the recipe books hanging around, and if you do, if you would be willing to sell one to me?
I like the recipies that came with the NutriBullet tried them at my sister-in-laws. Please let me know…that is if you ever see this comment! Maybe your SIL can photocopy or scan in her book for you? I want to make home made peanut butter, and grind some seeds and nuts and such, can the pulse do that? In fact it can! In fact, here is a recipe for a unique peanut butter I made with it:.
I gave my Pulse from QVC to my daughter and kept the After which I returned it in favor of an actual food processor.
Having done so, where would you suggest I get the best deal for another Pulse? Thanks n I appreciate your input. That is the best deal in pretty much any town! When I wanted a Pulse, I signed up for their newsletter on their website and they sent my coupon right away to my email! Got a Pulse from Wal-Mart, but noticed it has only watts. Is that the same is yours?
I know the one from QVC has watts. Also, I noticed the to go cups on this one can be locked as the one from QVC are not adjustable. Do you think watts of power is enough? I got the BL Thanks for any and all input! It seems to me watts is still A LOT of power…. Can the Pulse do this?
Would the extra power of the Ninja Professional be better for this purpose? Also would be nice to be able to make almond butter. Do you need almond oil to do this? I would say the single serve cups in the Pulse can absolutely make a smooth blended green smoothie. The blender jar will leave a little bit of small particles from the greens due to the way the blade goes through the middle instead of being at the bottom.
However, the individual cups make a very, very smooth green smoothie. The only thing is, of course, you are constrained by size. I would expect that single serve cup to perform as well as the single serve for the pulse, but it is larger. I am planning to review this system in the coming months, but not sure when. As far as making almond butter, either the Pulse or the Ninja Pro can do this fine. Coconut oil works great, as does light olive oil believe it or not.
Do you know if you can get the travel cups and blade for the KS or is that specific blade only fitting for the pulse? I am amazed at how attentive you are to this site!! I know that is a lot of work, thank you! This has been a common question. The Pulse travel cups work really well if you are considering between the KS and the Pulse.
I honestly use my Pulse more than the Ninja Pro blender nowdays. Also bought Amazing Meal vanilla chai. I add frozen fruit, usually banana, blueberry and pineapple and unsweetened almond milk. And it holds me til lunch. Need to try some of your other recipes, but extremely happy with pulse. Thanks for your note! I really love the Pulse.
It fits the bill so nicely to blend for one. It is getting me through not having a kitchen at all for now with a remodel as the best go-to breakfast. So glad you like it! Love the pulse Iam a newbie to all this. My favorite is blueberry bannana Mke sure they are frozen and orange juice and protein powder awesome try it.
I did have two questions I was wondering if you could help me with. Also, I was thinking it would be more convenient to be able to put things in the KS jar and push the button and walk away rather than having to babysit it. Can you do this with the Pulse or do you always have to hold it down?
I noticed when I used my KS to make a smoothie tonight it did take some time to blend the frozen bananas and the half of an apple I threw in there. Thanks for this post. You can either pulse, or, steady-state blend, but you do have to actively hold down the lid to steady state blend.
You may not have had enough liquid in your smoothie. Thanks so much, Angela. I was doing a search on reviews for the Ninja and wound up here.
The post about the Vega One shake was good. I too use Amazing Meal for my green shake and had been eyeing the Vega One. Thanks for stopping by and your nice note, Elliot. A little avocado and banana would be good in the Vega One! Would I have to strain in order to have a drinkable end result? I know it would be thick.. I would not be interested in straining at all. Yep, the Pulse would work great for green drinks! You only have to strain if you want true juice.
If you use the larger jar, you will have little bits of greens very small bits of just the leafy green parts, something like pear will completely blend , but the end result is still drinkable. This is due to the different blade designs.
The single serve cup blends from the bottom with a more traditional blender blade design, whereas the jar blends through the middle with many different blades. Here is my current favorite green smoothie — http: I make this in the single serve cup Ninja pulse. All taken care of at the register. They have changed the design of the to-go lids. No place for gunk to collect anymore I guess. Hi, I was interested in the ninja pulse and you have sold me on its capabilities and came across a review on a different website that stated only two possible problems and was wondering your take on them.
Whatever you are blending gets caught in the handle of blender potentially leading to mildew. When setting the lid down on the counter after blending you should face it down even the the gooey cobtents may get on the counter because if you face it up the gooey contents may seep into the pulse button causing a possible gooey build up over time and possibly making the button malfunction.
Otherwise they said they loved it. Im assuming with knowing this I would be careful to just clean it thoroughly. Im thinking of purchasing it for my mom and she doesnt like appliances that take more work to clean than to use.
Thanks for your help! In fact, I find the Pulse so easy to keep clean! I use it more than its larger counterpart, the Ninja Professional Blender, because it is smaller and easier to clean fits in the dishwasher so nicely! Thanks for your review! Any thoughts on which might be better for smoothies, baby food, and occasional substitute for a traditional blender?
Thanks for your thoughts! Maybe they have changed the design. The pulse actuator on the lid is just a steel pin on the underside of the circular piece. No way to clog that up at all. I really like this blender and use it at least daily! I would say go with the Pulse Kitchen System, so you get the single serve blender cups as well as other accessories like the dough paddle.
I use the single serve cup just as much as the blender jar. And, like Dale, I drink my smoothies out of the single serve cup without a lid — one less thing to clean!
