5 Unexpected Things You Can Do With a Ninja Blender
Ninja have carved out a niche with high quality kitchen appliances, and Ninja Blenders are becoming a ubiquitous sight on many counter tops.
Incredibly powerful and ridiculously simple to use, Ninja Blenders are a tool that can be used for almost anything. Here’s 5 surprising things you can use your blender for:
Pancakes or Waffles
Yes, your blender can take all the work out of making waffles and pancakes.
The next time you fancy these delicious breakfast snacks, instead of struggling with the mix, simply throw it all into your Ninja blender and switch it on.
Ninja blenders are incredibly high power, which means they’ll easily handle the thick mixture, but if you find yours struggling, you can easily break it all up with a spoon in between pulses.
It doesn’t matter which recipe you’re using either. Ninja blenders are good for all of them, including gluten free.
Just make sure, if you’re adding anything extra, like fruit pieces, nuts or chocolate, that you add them afterwards so they don’t get obliterated.
You might have expected this one if you’re into health and fitness, but maybe you still haven’t tried it.
A Ninja blender is the perfect method of mixing your shake together into a smooth and creamy finish, especially if you’re adding a lot of supplementation or protein heavy foods like banana or peanut butter.
Ninja blenders are also powerful enough that you can make healthy protein shakes without using protein powders, relying instead on protein rich foods.
Whatever you decide, give it a try. You probably won’t ever want to make your shake another way again.
If you’ve never made home-made condiments, you really should. Homemade mayonnaise literally only needs four ingredients, and takes minutes, but the flavor is divine.
You’ll only need:
- Grapeseed oil
- 1 egg, and 1 extra egg yolk
- Lemon Juice
The method is just as simple. Combine both oils into one cup, and mix with a spoon.
Then add the egg and yolk to the blender, plus the lemon juice and a small amount of salt for taste.
Pulse the blender for a few seconds, to start the mixing process. Then slowly drizzle in the oil whilst repeatedly pulsing the blender.
That’s it. Mayonnaise that you and your family are going to love!

If you’re in the mood for a delicious and slightly unusual dessert option, using your Ninja blender to make sorbet is a great idea, especially if you’ve had a hard day and just need to cool off.
Sorbets are actually incredibly easy to make, and only really need a handful of ingredients. For example, this blueberry sorbet only needs: blueberries, plant based milk, a sweetener and lemon juice.
Then all you need to do is throw all the ingredients into your Ninja blender and blast until it’s smooth.
Immediately transfer into a storage container and place in the freezer, then serve once it’s cool and thick. Delicious!
Perfect scrambled egg and omelettes
A quick and easy, but filling breakfast, scrambled eggs go with everything, and omelettes can literally be made in a thousand different ways, all of them delicious.
Having a high powered blender takes all the work out of making both these dishes. Instead of having to whisk up your eggs to the right consistency, all you need to do is crack them directly into your blender and pulse it for 5 to 10 seconds.
That’s literally all it takes to get super fluffy, light eggs, no matter how you’ve decided to cook them.
