9 Mouthwatering Vitamix Smoothie Recipes to Tempt Any Palate

If you're into smoothies, you've probably heard of Vitamix. Known as the best in the business, the Vitamix company—and the blender that bears its name—has been the first choice of home cooks and professional chefs for over 70 years. With a legacy like that, you know they must be doing something right. However, if you're new to Vitamix, one of the easiest ways to get properly acquainted is with some mouthwatering Vitamix smoothie recipes. And that's exactly what we have for you here!

But first, you might be interested in knowing what it is that makes the Vitamix blender so special...

The Vitamix Difference

When it comes to blenders, there are a number of perfectly adequate machines on the market. But if you're looking for a blender that can make hot soup, ice cream, salsa, bread dough, almond milk, and peanut or cashew butter—even grind grain—then the Vitamix blender's robust motor and precision blades make this one machine that can't be beat.

Plus, when it comes to smoothies, the Vitamix is so powerful that third-party testing has found that it can break down cell walls. Which means you end up with a super smooth smoothie with all the flavor and superfood nutrition raw food has to offer.

And, unlike traditional juicers, which strain out the juice and leave all the valuable pulp behind, preparing fruits and veggies in a Vitamix means all that important fiber doesn't go to waste—and that can add up to some serious health benefits.

So now that you know a little bit more about what makes Vitamix the blender to beat, how about we dig into those recipes we promised?
