    Ninja’s search for the company’s first Smoothie Bowl Sommelier is over as the kitchenware supplier has named Gillean Barkyoumb as its smoothie bowl expert.

    A registered dietitian, speaker and writer who is committed to making nutrition doable for everyone, Barkyoumb’s food philosophy focuses on simplicity and convenience to build balanced meals that include thick and spoonable smoothie bowls.

    “I am thrilled to partner with the Ninja team to create thick, drool-worthy smoothie bowls that can only be made with the very best blender – the Ninja Foodi Smoothie Bowl Maker and Nutrient Extractor,” she said. “This blender helps even the most novice of cooks feel like a boss in the kitchen, taking all of the guesswork out of making the ultimate smoothie bowl so that everyone can join in on the smoothie bowl movement.”


    According to the company, Barkyoumb will pair unique flavors to craft custom smoothie bowl recipes with the Ninja Foodi Smoothie Bowl Maker and Nutrient Extractor. She will work with Ninja’s test kitchen to create smoothie bowl recipes that will be available on

    Ninja will be hosting a virtual event – the Ninja Smoothie Bowl Social – on Wednesday, March 31, at 5 p.m. eastern time to help consumers become their own Smoothie Bowl Sommeliers from the comfort of their kitchens.
