So you got Vitamix for the holidays, or your birthday, or your anniversary, or you just bit the bullet and splurged on one for yourself. There's a reason why people are falling in love with these do-it-all blenders, despite their admittedly hefty price tag. Vitamixes are powerful, built to last, and self-cleaning (might honestly be my favorite part). I got one for my birthday last year and have been making smoothies and soups in it ever since, loving the way the blender mixes them to a smooth, thick consistency with no chunks to be found.
Sometimes it feels like the most difficult part of using a Vitamix is finding new recipes to test it out with. I tend to get in a rut and make the same smoothies and soups all the time. If you're in the same boat, or if you've just plugged in your Vitamix and aren't sure where to start, we've got your covered with these 13 easy-made soups and smoothies designed to use your high-powered blender to its fullest.
