Holiday Smoothies with the Nutri Ninja (and a review)

Y'all. Raise your hand if you agree that Christmas time has all he best flavors?!! Sure -- summer has watermelon, and fall has pumpkins and apples... but Christmas time has all the right spices and decadence.  Egg Nog.  Ginger Bread.  Mulled Wine.  So stinkin' good!

I ran across the top pic of a gingerbread smoothie by Peanut Butter & Peppers on pinterest and started drooling!  I headed over to her blog for the recipe and knew it would be the perfect inaugural smoothie to test out my new Nutri Ninja | Ninja Blender with Auto-iQ (yes, a mouthful, but it deserves the prestige).

Read full instructions (and calorie information) of Peanut Butter & Pepper's recipe here, but here are the ingredients:

  • 1½ cups coconut milk from carton or milk of choice
  • 1 small banana, frozen
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ginger, ground
  • ⅛ tsp. cloves, ground
  • 1tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. molasses
  • ¼ tsp. stevia or sugar to taste
  • 1 cup ice

SO so Yum!  And y'all.  If you are a smoothie drinker (and especially if you have a kick-booty blender like the one i'm about to tell you about) you are gonna want to check out more of Peanut Butter & Pepper's recipes!  She just posted this yummy Strawberry-Cranberry Smoothie recipe that I can't wait to try!

Okay, so back to that kick-booty Nutri Ninja I mentioned...  It's brand new from the Ninja Kitchen line and just came out this past September.  I was given the Nutri Ninja | Ninja Blender System with Auto-iQ for purposes of review, and let me tell you, right out of the box I was thrilled.

This whole system comes with:

Y'all.  My last stitch fix delivery was a total fun surprise.  I didn't have any real requests, so my stylist went to town finding pieces she thought suited me.  Loved all the surprises in the box.  I had requested distressed jeans -- and these are great!  But, I think when I actually got them on I wasn't quite into the super distressed look as I thought I would be (plus -- y'all this is hilarious, i had "knee rolls" that came out the holes! lol!!).

From this fix I kept the Bradford Fair Isle Sweater and the Ikat Embroidery Bag.  Did I need another purse?  Nope.  But... I just had to.  It's a great size for my personal stuff + a diaper and spare pair of pjs and can be worn cross body.  Love.

Try Stitch Fix for yourself.  Let me know if you have questions about how it works.  Would love to chat.


Sole Hope party at Green Door Gourmet, Hey Rooster, Barista Parlor, 5 Points, Fresh Bread from Bella Nashville, Pinewood Social, late night boot shopping down town, Frothy Monkey, I Believe in Nashville, Imogene + Wilie, Burger Up....  They came, They saw, they Conquered! #FourPeasTakeNash... wild success!

There are lots of things left about Nashville that I love and hope to one day get the chance to show them.  So thankful to have had them in town if just for a little bit.


I've talked about my different "hostess gifts" this past week, another part of their gifts were infinity scarves and fleece lined leggings from Conversation Pieces.  The weekend was actually really cold so they were the perfect accompaniment!  (Annnnd I may or may not have been wearing my leggings every night since they left! -- so cozy & only $12 w/ several color options)
