Why Vitamix Blenders Are The Best

I can honestly say that investing in a Vitamix was one of the best choices I’ve ever made. Not only did it help me adopt a healthier routine, but has become the most used appliance in my kitchen. It goes way beyond just blending up a smoothie. Here are a few reasons why I love it:

  • Insanely powerful motor. You can bet that this bad boy will blend up just about anything. It turns nuts into the creamiest nut butter and it can heat and temper eggs into a velvety hollandaise sauce.
  • Easy to clean. With a Vitamix, all you need to do is fill the container with hot water, add a drop of dish soap, and turn the knob to the cleaning cycle. That’s it!
  • Its versatility is endless! I won’t go into too much detail here since the below recipes will prove this point. So let’s get right into it!
