VitaMix, VitaAddicted


My wife Stephanie kept looking into buying a VitaMix blender. We owned a perfectly fine Cruisinart blender that well blended things and quite honestly we rarely used it. So why did we need some $500 blender?! Who knows but I figured as we moved into our new home that a house warming gift was in order and well it seemed like a good time to get this crazy blender thingy.

It’s been about a month since we bought the VitaMix at Costco and I have to admit – I’m addicted. Maybe it’s because I wanted to feel justified spending so much on this crazy thing. Or perhaps it just makes some great things (mainly smoothies) and is very easy to clean, making it a mostly effortless experience each time I use it.

Here are a couple quick favorite smoothie recipes. The best part no added sugars and I’ve dramatically reduced my visits and cravings for Jamba Juice. Plus I can avoid any sugars or concentrates and use organic fruit.

Blueberry, Banana, Orange Smoothie

1/2 cup blueberries
1 orange, peeled
1 banana, peeled
1 cup ice
1/4 cup water

Add ingredients in order listed start on variable setting 1 and increase immediately to 10 and then put into high speed for about 30-45 seconds.

Pineapple, Orange, Banana Smoothie

1 1/2 cups pineapple chunks
1/2 cup orange juice
1 banana, peeled
1 cup ice

Add ingredients in order listed start on variable setting 1 and increase immediately to 10 and then put into high speed for about 30-45 seconds.

    I recommend adding Kale to any smoothie for an extra natural energy boost + great flavor…I have it in mine every morning with Collard Greens and Spinach too!
