So, you’ve decided to bite the bullet and finally get the Vitamix blender you’ve been dreaming of. You love your morning smoothies and can’t wait to test out new recipes. But what if I told you that you could use your Vitamix for so much more?
With your Vitamix blender, you can make just about anything – dips, soups, dairy-free milks, bread and pizza dough, desserts, and more! Here are six recipes you can make in your Vitamix that aren’t just smoothies.
This homemade hummus is as creamy as it is delicious, and will taste ten times better (and probably healthier) than the store bought brands. It’s super easy to make too – just add all of the ingredients into the blender and blend! Want even more flavor? Add your favorite spices, hot sauce, or your favorite roasted vegetables to make this recipe your own.
Speaking of recipes that blow store bought brands out of the water, this super simple pesto tastes fresh and light. It’s great to put on top of pizzas, pastas, or just spread on top of some crusty bread. You can even throw some kale or spinach in to add more nutrients. Make a big batch and freeze it so you can have delicious pesto all year long.
Even though it’s almost spring, the weather is still pretty chilly. There’s nothing like a hot bowl of soup on a cold and gloomy day, and this roasted red pepper and tomato soup is the perfect comfort food. Roast all of the vegetables in your oven (or you can even stick them in an air fryer if you’re short on time) and then throw them directly into the blender. Whip up some grilled cheese and you have an easy and yummy lunch or dinner.
Making your own almond milk might seem daunting, but it’s worth it. It’s so much creamier and delicious when made at home, and you’re saving money by not buying the pre-made stuff. Customize your almond milk recipe to your liking by making it thicker or thinner, or sweeter using dates. You can also flavor your almond milk with vanilla extract or cocoa powder.
Make the perfect pizza by starting out with this homemade dough. It’s easy, fast, and perfect for homemade pizza night! The Vitamix kneads the dough for you so you don’t have to worry about doing it by hand. Just blend, bake, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy!
If you’re looking for a snack or dessert (or breakfast, we won’t judge) that’s chocolately and decadent but still healthy, these chocolate peanut butter mini muffins are for you. They’re flourless, gluten-free, dairy-free, and oil-free, but that doesn’t mean they’re not absolutely delicious!
