If you’re into smoothies, home cooking, or health food like me, then chances are you’re already familiar with all the wonderful things to make in a Vitamix blender. A Vitamix machine is NOT just a blender, though it is most known for its ability to transform a variety of foods into one amazing smoothie. I personally do love my Vitamix for making whole food smoothies most of all, but use it for much more than that. Honestly, I don’t believe there’s much this powerful machine can’t do! A Vitamix is known for its ability to make almost anything you can think of in the kitchen. It is extremely expensive, ranging from $300 and up, but I assure you, it is totally worth the money and it pays for itself over time. The Vitamix comes with a 7-10 year warranty plan and a lifetime guarantee as well. The company is by far one of the best companies I’ve ever worked with on a personal level and they are always so helpful. If you’re unsure of whether a Vitamix is worth owning, or you own one, but aren’t aware of everything it can do, then let me share with you my favorite things to make in a Vitamix blender. These delicious foods make it well worth the money and can save you money by allowing you to make your own foods at home, instead of buying some of these at the store for a much higher price.
1. Nut Butters
One of the most popular things to make in a Vitamix blender among the machine's users is nut butters! Peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, coconut butter, walnut butter, tahini, sunbutter, homemade Nutella, pecan butter, or a combination of ANY of those nut butters can be made at home in your Vitamix! I am such a fan of making expensive foods like nut butters at home, and you can make your own for a fraction of the cost of what you would pay for one of those pricey jars at the store! All you have to do is soak the nuts in some water to soften overnight, drain them, add them to the machine and blend! It takes about 2-3 minutes versus 10-15 minutes in a food processor, and you can even add in your own flavorings such as cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, honey, cocoa, or whatever else you can think of!
