Is a kitchen even a real kitchen without a blender? If you’ve never owned one before, you’re seriously missing out! Obviously, we all know that blenders are most commonly used to make smoothies. And of course, in the summer months, they definitely come in handy if you’re craving a frozen marg or a piña colada. But here’s the thing: Blenders have evolved and can do so much more than make a delicious blended drink!

Vitamix has seriously changed the game when it comes to blenders. If you’re a serious smoothie person, you’re likely aware of the power they possess. Even so, you may be wondering if it’s worth it to shell out the big bucks for your very own Vitamix. The answer? Well, it’s a necessity.

With that in mind, we picked out three of our favorite models from Vitamix, each of which is so much more than a blender. Best of all, we’ve included some healthy, handy hacks on how you can elevate your experience. Keep reading to discover how having a Vitamix can turn you into a pro in the kitchen!
