Blender talk : Reliable blenders for healthy, vegans food preparation

I've been looking for new juice / smoothie  inspiration and this week I found it at Wholefoods market.

 We popped down to Cheltenham to visit a friend, who was saying how much he loves the GreenStar juicer we have, and how much he loves his Vitamix blender - and that Vitamix were demonstrating at WFM that day. Perfect timing - the Vitamix model  they were demonstrating was amazing , the smoothie I had was delicious, smooth and unusual tasting - beyond words !If I had an extra £500+ in my account OH MY I would not stop myself, I would have bought one then and there! With the 10 year guarantee though it seems you get your monies worth considering we've gone through 4 blenders in 5 months ( we've not had a blender for 2 months now & shaking my sunwarrior smoothies isn't nice- trust me !)

I love blenders as you can create so many things with them other than just smoothies that they're famed for . I'd like to try making raw soups , Houmous , dips , dressings, ice cream, my own flours, raw recipes and other things that require a good blender , like the Vitamix

I had a passion fruit, mango , apple banana & kiwi , will be recreating this one day  soon , as soon As I have a new blender ... Any recommendations for me please ? So far we've had a Kitchenaid Artisan which melted , 2 Phillips , and my parents Tesco one . So, Any ideas ? I think the Vitamix wins hands down!  ( They used them to make my smoothie at Wholefoods, and it was divine, as I said! )

I've been looking around lots, there are so many to choose from!  What are your favourite high speed blenders? I'd love to hear!


  1. Hello! I would recommend the Vitamix, in a heart beat, I've had mine 11 yrs and still goin' strong!!!

    1. Thanks Yan, I am looking into it, wow 11 yrs - impressive ! Do you use it much ?

    Vitamix over BlendTec anyday! And don't even fall for the fake chef tony on Ideal world. AWFUL! I returned mine. Love your blog as always! :) Shooshana

  3. Invest in quality ! Your granny always said you get what you pay for , it's mostly true .

    1. Words of wisdom, and often very very true :) thanks for reading .

    I imagine that a good blender costs a lot , I can't wait to hear what you get as my blender is broke too :( I'm thinking a Vitamix , let me know what you think of it if you get one !!!! Katie xxxx

    1. I will totally let you know , we have a huge problem with blenders in the longevity aspect - here's to helping you find your dream blender !

  5. Vitamix all the way!!!!

  6. I'd go for the blendtec or the vitamix, I love mine, I luckily have one of each!

  7. Hey it's great to see you looking for a new blender , at my appointment with you the other day I know you said you wanted a Vitamix one , omniBlend are meant to be a cheaper version ?

  8. We have a kitchen aid a cuisinart AND the Vitamix !!!!!

    The kitchen aid is good for smoothies and cocktails & looks amazing in my opinion with its cool slick retro design .

    The cuisinart is more of a cheap soup blender .

    The Vitamix is the work horse grinding everything from chickpeas to smoothie making !!!

    1. Thanks so much for your detailed reply, i'm hoping to get a new blender this week and I will let you know what it is like!

    Vitamix - I read you can make a roulee cheese from cashews and I'd love to see you make it to see if its worth me getting one ! Thanks for all your allergy advice at work , it's really helping . Emma

  10. I'd like a blender but only have a budget of £250 can you recommend anything ?!

  11. I so can't wait until this house has a blender again! NIGHTMARE!

    I miss smoothies!
