Yay! We found replacement travel & sip lids for our Ninja Foodi smoothie & bowl blender, and they are MUCH better than the sip lids (i.e. travel lids) that come with the blender (official name “Ninja Foodi Smoothie Maker & Nutrient Extractor”, which is, yes, a mouthful).
Now, we L-O-V-E our Ninja Foodi smoothie blender, and for a whole lot of reasons, not the least of which are that a) the base is tiny compared to so many other high-speed blenders, and yet so much more powerful, and b) you can put your smoothie or other ingredients in it and then press a pre-programmed button and walk away, and c) it has that second weirdly-bladed cup to make nut butters, fat bombs, and other really thick mixtures. (By the way, here is our super-easy 3-ingredient keto vegan fat bomb recipe.)
But the one, and we do mean the only, thing that we didn’t love about our Ninja Foodi Smoothie…wait a minute. Why is it “Foodi” but not “Smoothi”? Hrmph. Anyways, the one thing that we didn’t love about it was those darned travel & sip lids. They are awful! The aperture in the lid through which you are supposed to drink is this weirdly shaped oval, and the oval is oriented horizontally. Now, this might work if the hole was large enough, but it’s also really small, forcing you to try to sip out of it sideways because it’s too small to get your upper lip into position, but too unwieldy to put your entire mouth around. At least that’s how it (doesn’t) work for us, and hey, the person who primarily uses it has a tiny mouth! Seriously!
WHAT WAS NINJA THINKING?? Why didn’t they just include the standard lids??
To make matters worse, if you try to find replacement lids from their standard lid selection (if it can be said to be that), they are all the wrong size. It’s like they are forcing you to live with this one imperfect aspect of this otherwise perfect blender.
The Wonderful Replacement Lids for the Ninja Foodi Smoothie Blender
But we found them! We found the lids that are like the regular Ninja travel lids, but for the Ninja Foodi Smoothie! (Well, they aren’t for that blender, but they fit and work with our blender!) To find them, because these lids don’t claim to fit the Ninja Foodi Smoothie blender, we had to cross-reference with all the other models that they do say that they fit, which we then cross-referenced with the Ninja Foodi Smoothie blender, and whaddaya know! They’re the same size! You see, the Foodi Smoothie Maker & Nutrient Extractor blender is model #SS101. These lids fit but don’t mention the #SS101 in their listings (such as the Amazon listing). So we took a chance so that you don’t have to! And we are really happy campers now! A perfect blender, with perfect travel lids!
