Blender Magic

· Blog

We love our Vitamix blender. It does so many things for us. And it's just like magic.

And, you don't need a Vitamix blender to enjoy the wonders that a blender can do in the kitchen. Vitamix is one of the most powerful so it does the job beautifully, but there are other powerful blenders out there too. And less powerful ones, and less expensive, can work wonders in minutes as well.

The value of all the power is how smooth it can make things. Like nut milks, dressings and sauces. With our old blender, we could make all the same things, but they didn't come out as smooth... and we like smooth. 😎

Join us to hear more.

So, here are some of the things we make with our Vitamix:

  • Smoothies
  • Non-dairy, plant-based milks
  • Dressing and sauces
  • Faux Parmesan cheese
  • Ground flax
We also use it to create a creamy consistency to a soup we've cooked. We'll add a portion of the cooked soup to the blender, blend it up and add it back. Or, we'll purée the entire soup. It's great for that.

The recipes for all the things we showed in the video are on our website along with hundreds more. Just click on the Recipes tab or the search button.

We love the magic our Vitamix does for us, partly too because it saves us money. Buying commercial non-dairy milks or date paste is much more expensive than making it ourselves. And they're made fresh, providing a more nutritious product as well.

Our Vitamix is one of the most used appliances in our kitchen, along with the air fryer and Instant Pot. Don't know what we did without them. 🤔

The recipe this week is a Cabbage & Chickpea Coleslaw. It's a wonderful, fresh coleslaw for this season.

To your Amazing Health,
Connie and Bill
