Broccoli Cheddar Soup By Ninja® Intelli-Sense™ Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer™

This post was created in partnership with Ninja® Intelli-Sense™ Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer™. I received complimentary products and compensation to facilitate my review, but all opinions within are my own.

I just found the kitchen system of my dreams! Orange Blush drinks, broccoli cheddar soup, pot pie and MORE! Enter to win! #ad #NinjaSnapTapGo #NinjaPartner

I pretty much remember exactly where I was when I realized I could make my favorite foods all by myself.

It was a bit of a dream, to be honest. It was Thanksgiving and we were hosting. I was certainly an adult, but maybe not the adultiest adult in terms of cooking. All of my recent adventures are only 1-3 years in, so thank you for staying tuned with that one! I have a few favorite foods that always seemed out of reach to me. One was homemade whipped cream, which I must have mastered, because Scarlet asks me for it every Thanksgiving. Then, there’s mashed potatoes. I’m embarrassed about that one because I always complained when they weren’t around, without realizing I could make them easily at home with a food processor. Not to mention with a lot of butter. My newest awakening is Broccoli Cheddar Soup! On my own!

That’s just always been one of my out of reach recipes. I thought to make it, you had to be a chef or have taken some classes. Never have I imagined I’d make it right in my own home – in 45 minutes or less – with the delicious aromas reaching my home office. Yes. I made this. And that’s one of the many reasons to love my Ninja® Intelli-Sense™ Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer™. This is no ordinary product. It’s opened up a new world for me. A world of new culinary adventures.

Here is everything I love about it:

1 – 12 Smart Programs. The chef-designed automatic recipe creations deliver optimal results every time. There are precisely calibrated patterns of pulsing and pausing that combine with ideal speed, power, and torque for each attachment. You can create anything from fresh salsa and pizza dough to margaritas and decadent ice creams – all with a simple tap.

2 – Smart Vessel Recognition. Ninja’s Smart Vessel Recognition Technology automatically senses which vessel is attached to the base and the touchscreen changes to display a customized menu of Smart Programs on the touchscreen. In a snap! You can enable one Smart Base to become four high-performance appliances!

3 – The Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer has an Intuitive Touchscreen. This is a sleek, flat screen that responds to your touch and lets you select between vessel-specific Smart Programs and manual options. The durable, easy-to-clean screen stands up to everyday kitchen wear and tear.

4 – It has one smart base that transforms into four high-performance appliances: 72 oz. Total Crushing® Blender, 64 oz. Precision Processor™, 24 oz. Single-Serve Cup, and Auto-Spiralizer.

This food processor is a marvel and you can enter to win one here:

Winners will be randomly selected from all program entries and Ninja will facilitate fulfillment of the 25 winning prizes.

One thing I love the most about my Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer is that it goes above and beyond a blender. Having access to four different vessels with just one smart base unlocks whole new possibilities for me. I will be making a morning drink later this week so stay tuned to my Facebook page! For now, it’s all about my dream recipe.
