Go Green for a Healthy Summer!
Be kind to your body with a daily green smoothie from the Vitamix® Total Nutrition Center 01/06/2013
Give yourself a boost this summer and kick start your beach body routine by investing in a Vitamix Total Nutrition Center. Green smoothies are the ideal way to get fresh vegetables into your diet without fuss using this high-performance blender. Its powerful blades ensure that fruit, vegetables and other produce are blended to a smooth consistency – ideal for nutrient rich smoothies!
The Vitamix has the ability to process fresh spinach, kale, or even ginger complete with skin, within seconds. It’s so fast, the goodness is not diminished as recipes are ready straight away and, unlike juicing systems, all fibres and pulp are maintained to ensure the full benefit of the produce remains.
If you need to cool off in the hot summer months, the Total Nutrition Center has the ability to make frozen desserts in 30 seconds. What’s best about these recipes is having the knowledge of everything that goes into them. This means less time inspecting the label of bought items and no added sugar or chemicals to worry about.
