Equipment Needed

Ninja Blender Smoothie Making Tools

A standard blender is all that is required to make Ninja Blender smoothies. If you are making it for just one person, we recommend using any one of the many available Ninja Single Serve Blenders as they are quick to set up and very easy to clean.

If you are making them for more than one person, we recommend a higher-end Ninja Blender that can process larger loads more efficiently.

For overnight storage, we recommend using a glass or BPA-free airtight container with a resealable lid.


How To Make This Smoothie

The Ninja Blender Raspberry Mint Lemonade smoothie is very easy to make:

  • Step 1: Place raspberries, mint, club soda, lemonade, powdered sugar, and crushed ice into a Ninja Blender and secure the lid.
  • Step 2: Start the blender on its lowest speed and steadily ramp up to its highest speed. This will reduce wear and tear on the motor and blades, facilitate a more consistent blend, and help prevent food splatter onto the lid and sides.
  • Step 3: Blend for approximately 30 seconds or until a smooth consistency is achieved.
  • Step 4: Pour into a glass for immediate refreshment or place in the refrigerator in an airtight container to enjoy later.

Recipe Tips And Substitutions

If you don’t have frozen fruit, or simply prefer to use fresh fruit (we totally get that), we recommend adding 1/2 cup of ice to chill your smoothie and give it a pleasing icy texture.

Ginger ale can be substituted for club soda but will make this delicious smoothie slightly sweeter.

Smoothie Frequently Asked Questions

How does citric acid help prevent kidney stones?

Citric acid, commonly found in citrus fruits like lemons and oranges, plays a role in preventing kidney stones. The main types of kidney stones are formed from calcium oxalate, and citric acid can bind with calcium in the urine, reducing the risk of these stones forming. Additionally, citric acid can prevent smaller stones from clumping together into larger, more problematic stones. It also helps make the urine less acidic, creating an environment where kidney stones are less likely to form. Many urologists recommend drinking lemon water as a preventive measure.

Is mint good for you?

Mint is a fragrant herb with a refreshing taste and numerous health benefits. It’s rich in essential nutrients like vitamins A, C, and folate, as well as minerals like calcium and magnesium. Mint is known for its digestive benefits; its natural compounds can help relax the digestive tract muscles, aiding in relieving indigestion and bloating. Moreover, menthol, the active oil in mint, has antiseptic and antibacterial properties that can help freshen breath and even contribute to better oral health. Some studies also suggest that mint may improve focus and mental alertness.
