Every family should have a heavy duty blender like the Vitamix as a kitchen health machine. Here are some of the things we regularly do with our Vitamix:
- Morning Smoothie. You can place any vegetable in the Vitamix (parsley, celery, kale, spinach, garlic, slice of ginger, slice of lemon, leafy lettuce, ice cubes, berries, water), or place fruits (such as seasonal fruit, frozen berries, lemon slice, tsp of honey) and blend well. You will be surprised at the refreshing and healthy nutrition-packed food you can create. Protein shakes with added kale leaves blended in the Vitamix are great too.
- Soups. Make blended soups such as yam, pumpkin, cauliflower, or broccoli soup. Steam the vegetables, cool, and then blend smooth using the steaming water. Add a veggie cube and seasoning and you will have great nutritious food.
- Nut milk. Soak 1 cup almonds overnight, slip off the skins, and blend in the Vitamix with 6 cups water, pinch of salt, and honey or 3 dates for sweetener. Use over breakfast porridge, or even to drink. Keeps until the next day only.
- Dressings and Sauces. Blend dressings in the Vitamix, or vegan gravy using cashews, water and a pinch of salt. You will see how smooth and silky the vitamix will blend your food. You can even make dips such as hummus very easily.
- Juices. Watermelon juice is the most amazing summer drink using watermelon flesh and ice cubes. Blend for 30 seconds and serve. You can also blend up a lemon, add water and ice cubes, with honey and a sprig of mint.
We recommend the best Vitamix blender your budget can afford. The larger container is great and possibly easier to clean, but the older narrower one is wonderful too. You will never be sorry.
Here’s what the company has to say:
