5 Reasons Why Every Raw Vegan Should Buy a Vitamix
So you have $450 dollars burning a hole in your pocket (if you’re very lucky!). What do you do with it? Spa weekend, a new laptop, a few pairs of shoes? If I told you to spend that $450 on a blender and said it will give you infinitely more enjoyment than any of those other purchases, you’d probably choke on your smoothie/juice/soup. But before you scoff, hear me out. The Vitamix brand is the Stella McCartney of the blender world and is a must-have for any raw vegan kitchen.
With this super-powerful, albeit expensive, piece of amazingness, you’ll be creating the fanciest of concoctions that will have you accessing the plethora of benefits of the raw vegan lifestyle, including bursts of energy, clearer skin, and a longer life, in no time at all.
And they even have a range of options to suit different budgets, if you want to access the vitamin and minerals packed into fruits and veggies in delicious and beautiful ways, and pay your mortgage.
1. It will blend anything
And when I say anything, I really mean anything. Fruits and veggies are a doddle with a Vitamix. In fact, it’ll make such quick work of creating the creamiest of soups, smoothies and juices and nice creams, that it’ll look at you in an almost arrogant manner, wondering when on earth you’re going to give it a proper challenge. So then, you chuck in a load of nuts. Ha, take that, Vitamix! A few seconds later, you’ll have fresh nut butter, perfect for accessing vital fats and proteins. Touché.
2. It’ll save you money in the long run
If, like me, you love a good bargain, you’ll consider buying the cheapest blender, only to find that you’re breakfasting on lumpy smoothies and half-blitzed juices. When this cheap piece of garbage proceeds to break after just 3 attempts at making some semblance of a soup – it just couldn’t handle that zucchini – you’ll repeat the process several times, until you’ve paid out just as much as you would have done on a Vitamix, and you may as well have beaten the food by hand. Both you and your credit card will feel seriously annoyed.
So don’t make the same mistake I did (for years) and waste your money on cheap pieces of worthlessness that can’t handle anything but already-mashed banana. A Vitamix is an investment, which will last years, create amazing raw vegan dishes, and, ultimately, pay for itself.
3. It’ll last a long time
Unlike some cheaper blenders, the Vitamix brand has a built a solid reputation for durability. They have super powerful motors that are designed to last you long into the next decade. In fact, they’re so confident that, no matter what you throw in there, they’ll stick around longer than any President, that many come with 10-year warranties.
So soup, smoothie and juice away, safe in the knowledge that the Vitamix, unlike many other, cheaper blenders, will not let you down.
4. It’s super easy to clean
No matter how much carnage you create in your new Vitamix, it can be cleaned, effortlessly. And by effortlessly, I mean you won’t have to clean it by hand. I know, you simply must get one.
Just fill the container with soapy warm water, switch it on to full for a few seconds, and there you have it: a sparkling clean blender. Some models are also dishwasher safe, for if you leave the remnants of that delicious blueberry smoothie in there for a couple of days. Of course, that won’t happen, as you’ll love your Vitamix so much that you’ll treat it better than your partner, friends and family. Well they didn’t cost $450, did they?
5. They have a range of options to suit different budgets
So, you want to access the abundance of vitamin and mineral-goodness in raw fruits and veggies and pay your electric bill? That’s fair.
You might say that some of the Vitamix price tags are pretty hefty. But, considering how long it’ll last, and how easy it will make a transition to a life-giving raw vegan lifestyle, it’s 100% worth it, so consider one that matches your budget.
