Here’s my review of the Vitamix Aer Disc Container. Instead of blades, it uses a disc with holes in it, which makes it less aggressive. They named it Aer for aeration, referring to its ability to whip up foams. It can also extract flavor from ingredients for drinks, and emulsify sauces and dressings. It works on all full size (non S-Series) models, so that includes everything from the classic 5000 up to the latest Ascent models. As usual, if you order via my link, you get free shipping, and Joy of Blending gets a commission. Continue Reading →
Here’s a simple smoothie combination that I found delightful. The raspberries make it pop, the orange and mango round out the flavor, and the mango slightly thickens it. Continue Reading →
GreenBlender sent a box to me so I could review their service. If you sign up via one of my links, I get a commission. You don’t need a Vitamix to blend their recipes, but it does help maximize smoothness.
Maybe you’re short on time to pick out fresh ingredients every week, maybe you want an extra push towards a healthy smoothie habit, or maybe you just want some new variety. If you feel like giving it a try, you can save $10 on the first box by using promo code GBSAVE10. Continue Reading →

Here’s a soup that I’ve been enjoying. In addition to the the flavor from the leeks, the sweet potatoes and white beans make it quite hearty. Pair with a salad and it’s a complete meal. Continue Reading →
I’ve been testing out a Vitamix V1200 to write this review. As expected, it delivers the high quality results that Vitamix has built its reputation on. If you’ve been shopping around for a Vitamix, you’ve probably noticed that they make many different models. The first thing to know is that all of the full-size machines offer the same blending performance. (The only non-full size models are the S30, S50, and S55.) The differences are in features, aesthetics, and the containers they come with. Continue Reading →
There’s something glorious about a whole roasted cauliflower. And it goes so well with this garlicky, minty sauce. I can’t recommend this combination highly enough. Continue Reading →
This is so simple that it’s barely a recipe, but I’ve been enjoying it for the past couple of months, and I decided it’s worth sharing. Sometimes I like to have a protein shake. I usually prefer chocolate flavor, but I find most chocolate powders a bit lacking. So this is my way of sprucing it up.
The result is satisfying, and it’s a super lazy recipe, since you don’t have to peel or prepare any produce. It comes out thick, and I like drinking it with a straw. (I use reusable straws.) Continue Reading →
