More Vitamix Recipes

It's official, we are obsessed with our Vitamix! Super Dad makes smoothies every morning for the family and I have now ventured into making soup and dip! The other day we made a smoothie that is by far my favorite. I got the recipe from the Vitamix recipe book. I also decided to try a guacamole recipe from the same book and it was delicious, too!

The Everything Smoothie


  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or soy milk or regular skim milk)
  • 1/2 cup red grapes
  • 1 medium orange, peeled, halved
  • 1/2 cup fresh pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 of a small carrot (I used about 5 mini carrots)
  • 1/2 cup chopped broccoli
  • 1/2 cup spinach, lightly packed
  • 1/2 cup frozen unsweetened peach slices
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 of a banana (I used half)



  1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix in the order listed and secure lid
  2. Select Smoothie program.
  3. Press start
  4. Allow machine to complete the program cycle, using the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades.
It makes about 3.5 cups of a most delicious smoothie. 

Guacamole

  • 1 roma tomato, quartered for divided use
  • 4 ripe avocados, halved, pitted, peeled, divided use
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  1. Place 1/4 tomato, 1/2 an avocado, onion, lemon juice, cilantro, and salt into the Vitamix in the order listed.
  2. Choose speed 2 and blend for 20 seconds or until ingredients are mixed 
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and blend on speed 2 until ingredients are mixed. 
  4. Don't over mix. You want it a little chunky (or maybe you don't). 
It makes 3 cups of yummy guacamole.
