Oh, my babies. We’ve all used an underwhelming blender that can’t handle the truth of what we’d like it to produce.
JUST CRUSH THE ALREADY SEMI-CRUSHED ICE…IS THAT TOO HARD?!

Enter the age of the Vitamix blenders. Yeah, yeah, I know you know, but I obviously live under a rock, cause, HELLO GORGEOUS!
Look at this lovely vision of a blender that kicks ice butt!
This badboy is the Vitamix 5200 Series blender. The online reviews mirror my hard crush on all things Vitamix.
Spoiler Alert #1: People love their Vitamix blenders!
~ The size and shape of the 64-ounce container is ideal for blending medium to large batches
~ Easily adjust speed to achieve a variety of textures. The dial can be rotated at any point during the blend, so you’re in complete control
~The power and precision of our patented designs are able to pulverize every recipe ingredient, including the tiniest seeds
~The blades in the Vitamix container reach speeds fast enough to create friction heat, bringing cold ingredients to steaming hot in about six minute
~ Material used : BPA-free Eastman Tritan Copolyester. Manufactured in Cleveland, Ohio USA
Garry and I aren’t so much interested in juicing, as we are pulverizing fruit into a smooth drinkable concoction, thereby retaining the good-for-you fiber. Our regular blender can hardly handle frozen wild blueberries (so. small!), so how could it handle an apple?!
Spoiler Alert #2: It can’t.
I also am a big fan of homemade nut butters. This blender will smoothly handle that job. ~snort~
While the Vitamix 5200 is a powerful choice, if I had a to pick a Vitamix blender it would be the Vitamix 7500 blender package, cause MORE STUFF!
~ Special Package Includes 7500 Blender, RED, 32-ounce Dry Blade Grains Container, and 2 20oz To-Go Cups (to go cups do not fit blender)
~ Vibration dampening and enhanced airflow management – about 40% quieter than older Vitamix models
~ Variable Speed Control and Pulse feature refresh recipes and create a variety of textures for maximum flexibility
~ Low-profile BPA-free 64 oz. capacity container is perfect for meals and entertaining and easily stores under most cabinets.
~ Powerful 2.2 peak output horsepower motor propels the blade up to 240 mph to blend even the toughest ingredients. Sleek new design features an illuminated control panel, soft-grip controls, and easy-grip handle.
~ 7 Year Warranty on the blender, 3 Year Warranty on the Jars and cups. Simply Natural Recipe Book, Starter DVD
7 year warranty! 40% quieter! So much power! All the thangs a gal like me is after in a blender.
I haven’t opened my wallet, yet. But, I can tell you the Vitamix is on my short list of the top 5 things I neeeeed in my kitchen.
Spoiler Alert #3: It will happen.
Is anyone as obsessed with these mixers as I am? (BTW: Any one of their models would make a mind-blowing gift to someone special on your list. I mean, if you’re going to buy her/him a blender, it better kick butt, or don’t even bother.)
Happy blending the crap outta ALL THE THINGS, y’all!

We had a vitamix when I was a kid. That thing could whip up the most amazing smoothies! We ate a lot of pureed things back then too! My mom was in LOVE with it. Now that I'm an adult, I get it. And I REALLY want one too!.
