I love getting new stuff for my kitchen, especially if it’s something that makes my life easier! That’s why I’m totally loving the Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System! I’ve been a fan of Ninja products ever since I starting using their coffee system to make drinks like this Dark Chocolate Caramel Latte. When I discovered the kitchen system, I knew I had to have it.

NOTE: While the Kitchen System no longer comes with the spiralizer, you can find the Ninja Spiralizer With Food Processor here.

The Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer has everything I need for my kitchen, all rolled up into one. Instead of having a separate appliance for every job, I’m saving a ton of space by having 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.

It saves room in the kitchen because everything fits on one base

There are so many things that come with the Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer that you won’t need much else for your kitchen. The total crushing blender holds up to 9 cups and features stacked blades.

Since my previous blenders only had blades at the bottom, my frozen cocktails usually had little chunks of ice left in them…annoying, right? You won’t get that with this blender.

The stacking blades make for smoother drinks

I like the single serve cup for smaller portions (perfect for this triple berry smoothie). If you’re making a large recipe, you’ll like that the food processor holds up to eight cups. My old food processor was so small that I sometimes had to make recipes in batches, so this makes things a lot easier!

How To Make Zucchini Noodles

While I all the attachment, my favorite is the auto spiralizer. (Though it no longer comes with the system, you can buy the Nina Spiralizer With Food Processor separately…perfect for if you already have a blender) I love zucchini and I’ve wanted to learn how to make zucchini noodles for ages. Now I finally could.

The auto spiralizer is perfect for making pesto zucchini noodles

The spiralizer comes with blades to make spaghetti or fettuccine shaped “noodles”, but you can buy more blades to you want to try other types. It’s really easy to use…just assemble the spiralizer by placing the spiralizer bowl on the base. Slide the collecting bowl inside and add the spaghetti blade.

Top with the feed chute lid and you’re ready to go. Place your zucchini inside, turn the base on and push the zucchini through with the food pusher.

Empty the collecting bowl and repeat with each zucchini.

You can make so many recipes, including pesto zucchini noodles

Since this came with a recipe book as well, I thought I’d try the Zucchini Spaghetti With Basil Pesto & Sweet Peas.

The recipe book has plenty of great ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner

I changed up the recipe a bit, taking out the peas and adding chicken and mushrooms. Not only did I love it, my girls did too (they also loved this zucchini spaghetti with turkey, mushrooms and peppers). It’s always a success when the kids ask for seconds! They had no idea they were eating veggies (shhh…don’t tell) so it was a win/win for everybody.
