Vitamix Fast Food Smoothies

I originally took this photo as a selfie with me kissing my Vitamix 5300. But my husband said it was creepy (whatever Joshua).

I had a ninja food processor for many years that I used as our smoothie blender but we reached a point where it just didn’t have the power and ability to smoothly blend a smoothie for 4 or 5 people.

Enter the Vitamix. Oh how I love it. It powers through everything in seconds and leaves us with perfect smoothies.

All of the organic frozen fruit and veg for our smoothies comes from Costco, so it comes in bulk and for a low price.

We start with one of their portioned veg mix packs. They have 2 flavors: this fresh start blend and then a berry blend. We like both and enjoy the variety.

Then we layer in more. I let the kids experiment, create, and choose a variety of flavors. We can also add things like spirulina, protein, seeds, etc. Go on and get your hippy health nut on.

Next we add the liquid. This juice coconut pineapple juice is my favorite and we use a variety of others too along with some crushed ice. For a sweet treat we can also add vanilla frozen yogurt.

Last, the best part: turn your smoothie into fast food by topping a mason jar with a square of press n’ seal wrap, poking a small hole in the center with a sharp knife, and popping in a straw. Then hop in the car and go with your meal or snack in hand! We often do this for breakfast in the car with no spills or crumbs.
