Vitamix Smoothie Recipe: Apple, Strawberry, Carrot & Spinach

Vitamix Smoothie Recipe Requirements

I require every Vitamix smoothie recipe to have at least one vegetable for each fruit, otherwise there is just too much sugar (though we will occasionally make a fruit-only smoothie as a dessert on a designated dessert day).

I also require every Vitamix smoothie recipe to have some kind of protein component, be it whey protein powder, non-fat yogurt, Shakeology, and even cottage cheese (though I wouldn’t recommend that last one).

Vitamix Review

I want you to forget everything you thought you knew about blenders because you’ve been misled, duped, snowed, tricked into thinking you owned one. What you own would like to be a blender. It may even have the word “blender” on it. It probably has the similar shape, spinning blades, and the noise of a blender… but it’s not… not really. It’s like the difference between someone who plays golf and someone who is a golfer. Your gadget might blend, but it’s not a blender.

Enter the true protagonist, the Vitamix. Here’s what it’s not: Pretty, small, or quiet. Let’s call a spade a spade. This thing was not designed by Apple. It takes two hands to lug around. And it could wake your neighbors. But it’s all worth it. Why? Continue reading Vitamix Review…

    This is a favorite with my family. It is a good middle ground between a sweet and vegetable taste. It’s delicious and not overbearing.

    Agreed. We should make this one more ourselves.
