Since I copied/pasted the recipes to my files, I decided I could try to post them (if it works) for some who might have a hard time finding them. These recipes are posted for the Ninja Master Prep, but there are other links for recipes for the Ninja Kitchen System 1100 and the Ninja Professional Blender, also. (It seems they could be used in any Ninja model??)

These are from the Ninja web site - Just click on "RECIPES" at the top:
