Weekday mornings around here are so super hectic. I’m always looking for ways to save time and effort in the mornings. One of my tricks for getting out of the house quickly is to blend up a smoothie for breakfast in my Vitamix Explorian Series e310. I talked about my love for it back in this post, but today I’ll share how the Vitamix Personal Cup Adapter is saving me even more time!
The Vitamix Personal Cup Adapter makes it possible to blend a drink right in the vessel that will be used to enjoy the blended drink. One of my favorite recipes for a breakfast smoothie is adding the following ingredients to the blender:
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 tbsp agave nectar
- 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
- 2 tsp hazelnut spread
- 1 tbsp collagen powder
After a few quick whizzes in the Vitamix, my smoothie is ready. It’s delicious and so perfectly smooth. Unlike other blenders on the market, the Vitamix can produce a smooth, silky texture that’s perfect for smoothies!
Many days, I don’t even have time to enjoy the smoothie at home. I take it with me on-the-go and enjoy it while I’m waiting at the bus stop with my kids.
Sometimes I’ll simply sip my smoothie while I’m running errands around town. It’s so convenient being able to take my breakfast with me on the go!
I’ve been getting so much use out of my Vitamix Blender. I even use it to make homemade peanut butter… not just any old peanut butter either… customized Coconut Honey Peanut Butter! Simply add the following ingredients into the blender:
- 1 cups salted peanuts
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp dried coconut
- 1 tbsp honey
Simply mix the ingredients, using the tamper & under-the-blade scraper to loosen the mixture as it is blended. If the mixture is not moving, consider adding more liquid to the container. Once blended to the right texture, I store the peanut butter in a glass jar and it’s the perfect topping for some toast on busy mornings. Even the kids love the personalized flavor in this peanut butter!
Did you know that Vitamix is a fourth-generation family-owned American company? I love that they’ve been developing and producing award-winning blending technology for so many years. Their blenders can be found in home & restaurants throughout the world. In fact, the Vitamix E310 Explorian Series Blender contains a 48 oz container that is ideal for blending medium batches
for small family meals. With ten variable speeds, it’s possible to customize the texture of your creations with precision. Plus, a drop of dish soap and water makes clean-up a breeze! To keep up with the latest news & offers from Vitamix, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
