This week’s post for “product of the week” is dedicated to my true love, the Vitamix.
I was obsessed with having one of these contraptions for about a year before I decided to take the plunge and actually buy one. Why you ask? Because they are one expensive kitchen gadget, costing between $400 and $500. However, if you ask ME, they are worth every penny. They come with a 7 year warranty and I use mine every single day!
I make my green smoothie (and it makes all the difference in the taste!), other smoothies, raw soups (they are still hot, but as long as the temperature doesn’t rise above 116, it is still considered raw, therefore maintaining all of it’s enzymes!), healthy salad dressings, homemade almond milk, almond butter (or a butter using any kind of nut you want – you can also add cocoa and stevia to make a healthy chocolate version or get creative with your own ideas!), homemade sorbet that is delicious and has no sugar, vegan protein shakes, and if you want to be bad, these make a killer milkshake or fondue! Did I mention that they can also clean themselves?!
I love mine so much that somehow it came up in my final answer at the Miss Tennessee USA pageant this year when I won – do I now consider it a good-luck charm?? OF COURSE I DO! IT’S JUST THAT AMAZING! My boyfriend Matt took these videos from the audience with his iPhone, so they’re not the best quality… and they were also taken sideways, but you get the idea!
