Joy of blending
This is a blog about preparing tasty, healthy, and easy food with a powerful blender.
I was exposed to the world of powerful 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 give me a Vitamix
as a college graduation present. 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 that can do most everything 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.
