We finally broke down and bought a Vitamix! We have been wanting one for some time and pulled the trigger yesterday. I love to make green smoothies but my old blender just did not cut it. It was like drinking grass clippings. I researched, read reviews and the Vitamix always came out on top. Time for a test – Kale, apple, orange smoothie.One reason for getting this model are the 3 presets – one of which is for smoothies. I had apples, cuties, kale and almond milk in the fridge so let’s get started! Add one cup of almond milk, one cup kale, 2 cuties, an apple (not sure if I needed to core it but I did) and top with a cup of ice.
Set the Vitamix to smoothie and turn on. 45 seconds later I had an awesome smoothie!! Blended perfectly – not bits what so ever. Clean up is a breeze as well. Just fill the container 1/2 full of warm water, a drop of dish soap and run on high for 45 seconds – rinse and dry! I see a lot of smoothies in my future and cannot wait to see what else this bad boy can do. Cheers!
