Why I Love my Vitamix

When I told my husband that I wanted to buy a $400 Vitamix he thought I was crazy. It took me two years to talk him into it. That was a year and a half ago. Now my husband is addicted to green smoothies and has convinced his friends to buy a Vitamix too. This is why they are awesome:

In the hopper for today: Frozen cherries, purple kale, carrots, a plum, a pear, purple grapes and ice.

Purple smoothie into my three year old in less than five minutes! Just like at Jamba Juice, only better.

Then I add a bunch of cilantro and kale to the purple smoothie leftovers.

Now I’ve got two green smoothies. One for me to drink now, and one for my husband when he gets home.

A few points to consider:

  1. I almost never follow a recipe. I just use whatever organic fruits and vegetables are in season.
  2. For the kids, I use 80% fruit, 20% vegetables. Kale and spinach can usually be hidden by blueberries or cherries.
  3. For my husband and me, I try to do 70% vegetables, 30% fruit.
  4. I also use my Vitamix to make soup, but primarily it is a green smoothie workhorse. You just can’t pulverize carrots and kale in a normal blender.

So the next time the Vitamix people come to Costco, take a look. (And no, they are not paying me to say any of this, but I wish they would!)

    I’m still working on convincing my husband to splurge for the Vitamix. We currently use a cheap old blender for our green smoothies. It’s just not the same. I LOVE going to my friends house and enjoying her smoothies from her Vitamix. They just taste so much better.

    I should clarify too that my husband would be totally okay with me spending money however I want, but that since $400 is such a big purchase I would OF COURSE get his agreement before I spent that amount.
