I bought one at Christmas and it is my favourite thing ever! I use it at least once a day since I got It. I make green smoothies every morning and have soup or sorbet fairly often too. It works so well! Have fun with it!

I LOVE my Vitamix!! Well… I like it a lot. Sometimes I get really frustrated because stuff doesn’t blend properly and the blade gets stuck so I have to poke it with the tamper stick thingy. Some of the recipes in the book that come with it, don’t work. One of the smoothie recipes just has fruit and ice, and it definitely didn’t blend up. I had to add water to loosen it up. But I still like it for what it is, I guess.

And apparently you can make tahini (sesame paste) in it, by just grinding sesame seeds. And peanut butter, by just grinding peanuts. The natural oils supposedly come out and the motor gets warm enough to mix it all together. I haven’t tried it yet though, but I have major doubts.

My mum has one and it’s incredible. For breakfast she makes a smoothie with apple juice, celery, spinach, and some other green bits. The celery doesn’t leave stringy bits at all! Plus, it fills you up completely until lunch 🙂

You def need some kind of liquid in it to help it blend better into a liquid consistency.

I cannot wait until I can get one. Best things ever.

I have a Nutribullet. I start with spinach and carrots. I then add frozen and/or fresh fruit, flax seed, a little honey and water. I’ve done a spoonful of cottage cheese too. My Nutribullet does well even with frozen fruit as long as there is some fresh fruit and water. I like things cold.
