My Vitamix 30
WEEK 1: START SIMPLE
Blending for Beginners
We’ve been making blenders for nearly 100 years, and no matter how food trends change, smoothies are still by far our most popular recipes. And it’s no wonder why – they’re easy to make, take about two minutes start to finish, and are incredibly versatile. Pick a recipe to start with below, and get ready to enjoy the smoothest homemade smoothie you’ve ever tasted.
Once you’ve gotten the hang of smoothies and frozen drinks, give non-dairy milks a try. It’s not only more cost effective to make most non-dairy milks at home, you get to control what goes into them. That means skipping additives like thickeners and preservatives and limiting the sugar content.
VITAMIX TIP: LOADING YOUR CONTAINER
Placing heavier, frozen items on top of lighter ingredients helps weigh them down and gets the blend moving faster. This can also help prevent the blend from stalling.
Start with a recipe or two each day, then try personalising the flavour and texture of your favourites by substituting different fruits, nuts, or the amount of liquid you use.
Light and fresh, this restorative beverage is great motivation for any wellness routine.
