This is a blog about preparing tasty, healthy, and easy food with a powerful blender.
I was exposed to the world of high-performance blenders early. My dad got a Vitamix when I was a kid and he used it often to make breakfasts of “total juice” smoothies and pancakes or waffles with freshly ground whole grains. In 2005 he gave me my own Vitamix. Since then I’ve enjoyed using it to make mostly smoothies, but also plenty of other things.
I don’t want to come across as a Vitamix partisan. So far I’ve only had experience with Vitamix machines, so I cannot personally compare them to other powerful blenders. From what I’ve read, Blendtec machines can do most everything that a Vitamix can. It may be possible to use other blenders for these recipes, but they may have trouble or yield less smooth results.
I was inspired to start this blog after describing some recipe ideas to family and friends, and I started thinking it would be nice to have a reference to point to. I hope this blog inspires and motivates me and others to try new blender ideas. I hope you enjoy the blog, and if you have any comments or suggestions please don’t hesitate to comment or contact me directly.
