A tale of many smoothies

Why try it?

Other blenders

Generic old blender

We initially tried our smoothie quest with an old generic blender.  Many discouraging factors limited our success, including –

  • Many many different functions; none of them great
  • Little ability to handle challenging ingredients (frozen fruits, nuts, etc)
  • Tedious cleaning process
  • Challenging to disassemble and reassemble
  • Long blending time

Enter the Vitamix TurboBlend VS

The base of the Vitamix TurboBlend VS has a very simple control panel and can still tackle any blending task.

After much research, we decided that a Vitamix blender was the best choice for us.  The marketed reasons included –

  • Simple & efficient interface – 2 controls
  • Quick & simple cleaning process – blend soapy water
  • Power!  This blender can handle avocado pits!

Why we think our blender is awesome

  • Every aspect of the blender is easy and fast – blending and cleaning are simple.  Having a smoothie every morning is a piece of cake.
  • It blends so well that it is easy to pack in a ton of ingredients and round out our diets with fruits and vegetables.
  • It is not expensive to buy or maintain
  • Last time we checked, the Vitamix TurboBlend VS package includes everything you need to get started and stick to a healthy smoothie routine – the LiveFresh Cookbook ($59 value), a nutmilk bag ($14.95 value), a tamper ($12 value) and a DVD cooking class.  This package made it easy to get started blending.
