I am so darned excited about this blender! We recently bought it off craigslist.com and I have used it at least twice a day every single day. You can juice with it, make hummus, blended coffee, sauces, even hot soups! Also, the manufacturer has a complete product warranty including pre-paid shipping should the Vitamix need repair of any kind.
The Vitamix is so powerful it turns even very fibrous foods into smooth creamy puree!
The base is unusually large but needs to be. I am pretty sure if it weren’t built so well it would destroy itself because it is so darn powerful.
In short, I love this blender and recommend it 100%.
Here are a few recipes I like:
1/2 C. Orange Juice, 1/2 banana, 1C. spinach, 2 kale leaves & 5 ice cubes
1/2 C. Orange Juice, 1/2 banana, 1tsp. flax-seed, 2 kale leaves & 5 ice cubes
Both recipes make a mighty green drink that tastes sweet and delicious.
Dear Jesus, thank you for blessing our family with this machine. I am glad to be able to provide healthy juice for my whole family. Amen.
