Vitamix. A well trusted brand loved by so many. It’s amazing that you can make nut butter, soup (yes, hot soup!) or ice cream! I haven’t tried ice cream, I have tried soup and nut butter (amazing) – we mainly use ours for smoothies – a quick way to get your fruits and veggies in!
This is the Vitamix E320 model and it is on sale at Costco through 8/15/2022 (or while supplies last). As Costco always does, you get a little more than if you were to purchase it elsewhere. The “bundle” as I called it, comes with PCA (personal cup adapter) as well as 2-20oz cups with lids. Pretty sweet deal! The entire bundle is on sale for $299.99 ($100 off!) and you have the option to purchase it online for an additional $4.99 for shipping. The cup adapter is pretty cool. You fill the cup with veggies/fruit/liquid of choice, then turn the adapter upside down and screw it on to the cup of the adapter (as shown) – then flip it over and set it where you would normally set the 64oz. container. Turn the Vitamix on, when done, set the cup down and unscrew the adapter. Pop the travel lid on it (forgot to include in image) and you’re set to walk out the door.
I like that the E320 model has a low profile BPA free container. In addition to the Vitamix green smoothie recipe I featured the other day, we’ve been making one with peaches (since they’re so good right now):
BANANA PEACH SMOOTHIE – 2 servings
2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 frozen bananas
2 small or 1 large washed peach, sliced (pit removed)
Handful of ice cubes
Sprinkle of cinnamon
2 handfuls of fresh spinach
Turn the Vitamix on low, slowly increasing speed until it’s on high until blended. For those afraid of spinach – there is NO spinach taste detected in this smoothie… worst case, start out with a small handful and slowly increase.
Pour into glasses and ENJOY!
