Dress to Impress with Vitamix Blenders

Inspire your guests with deliciously different dressings using Vitamix

Healthy lifestyles are hard to achieve without the right tools to ensure your food tastes good as well as being nutritious. A daily green smoothie packed with vegetables is the ideal place to start, something a high performance blender from the Vitamix range can prepare in no time. 

When it comes to the remainder of the day, how do you stay on track with your diet whilst making sure your food still appeals to family and friends? Leafy salads are a great solution, but shop-bought dressings and vinaigrettes can have hidden ingredients which can undermine your regime. 

Use a powerful blender from the Vitamix range which has the ability to process oils, herbs, yoghurts, juices and vegetables to make great dressings of which you can be confident in the contents.
