My New Blender

So I got this awesome blender for Christmas. I've been begging for a blender since I started this whole cooking adventure, and finally..... my whining has been heard and I received The Ninja Master Prep Professional Food & Drink Maker.   I've decided I'm going to blend the hell out of the kitchen, starting with smoothies. I'm going to go on a smoothie binge, just watch.  For one, every single day that I was in Vietnam visiting family, I had fresh smoothies every day. I miss that. Secondly, a healthy, delicious, filling breakfast in a cup, on the go?? I  mean really.. who can argue with that. This'll be the perfect way to get fruits and vegetables all in one little cup and feel like i'm having a sweet treat the whole time.   Plus i'm getting really bored of boring english muffins and oatmeal for breakfast...

Behold..the fancy, inexpensive, awesome Ninja. It comes with four different containers for your various needs. Storage lids, sharp blades (i've already cut myself), and probably my only complaint is that now I need to find a place to store all those containers. Otherwise, I love it!  But if you are concerned with space, there are other Ninja systems, with just one pitcher.  Anyways, enough of this. I'm not here to advertise, I'm just excited I finally got a blender. :-)

I'd tell you how I made this but honestly, I have no idea. I was just so blender happy I started throwing random things in it. This is a blend of coffee, ice, peanut butter, bananas, and chocolate chips, topped with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles.   I'm pretty sure its not too difficult to reproduce and you really should because holy yum!
