Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream & Top 10 Easy Blender Recipes


I have had so much fun with my Vitamix over the last few months.  Not only have I dove into their fabulous recipes, but I dove into my favorites.

If you haven't had a chance, pop on over to their Facebook page and like them.  They have the most fabulous recipes and I am in love with the quality of my blender.  

A lot of readers have said that they would make a smoothie first.  I have to agree.  Get ice, kale, a whole apple (seeds removed) whatever you like and toss it in.  This blender chews it up.  Chad said that he loves smoothies in the Vitamix because they are now the quality of ones we used to buy.  Smooth smoothies, what a concept.

Here are some of our recipes that I have made in the Vitamix 5200 and found them to be even easier than before:
