I was provided a Nutri Ninja® | Ninja® Blender to help facilitate this Strawberry Orange Protein Smoothie recipe post.  No other compensation was given.  All opinions are my own.

Strawberry Orange Protein Smoothie!

One of the easiest ways I have found to curb cravings and fill up is making protein smoothies.  My favorite smoothies are low calorie, low carbs, low fat and moderate protein.  It’s a great way to have something filling when I really don’t need any extra calories!  Now that I am making smoothies more often I though I would upgrade my 3 year old Ninja Blender to a newer model.  I knew I wanted to stick with the Ninja brand because I have had great success with my older one.

Ninja Blender Blades

I love the triple blades on my older model and so I picked out the Nutri Ninja® | Ninja® Blender because it uses the same blades for the bigger pitcher.  I also loved that it came with 2 smaller Nutri Ninja® Cups with Sip & SealTMLids.  When I just need one serving it makes it so much easier to have the cups on hand and I can blend and drink from the same cup.

 Ninja Professional Blender

Most of the time I use the larger pitcher because I know that my husband and kids will want some too.   The main thing I was hoping for in my new Ninja Blender was that it would blend up my smoothies into a fluffy and creamy consistency.

Ninja Blender Smoothies

For this smoothie I used the Frozen Drinks and Smoothies IQ button.  This would ensure that I got the best blend for a smoothie.  It automatically pulses so that I can just press the button and go do other things while it blends away.  Pulsing makes the smoothies or frozen drinks ultra smooth.

For my Strawberry Orange Smoothie I used both frozen strawberries and ice.  In a normal blender this would be a hard task, but not for the Nutri Ninja®!

This smoothie turned out perfect!  It was light and had a whipped consistency!

Strawberry Orange Protein Smoothie

I loved the flavors of the strawberries and orange.  It reminded me of the orange drinks we used to get at the mall… so good!
