Want to try a more plant-based approach to eating? You've come to the right place. Whether you're vegan, flexitarian or you're just looking to put more whole foods into your diet, we know that a healthy diet leads to a better life and we want to inspire and support you on your journey.
The Vitamix blender was created to help people get more whole food goodness into their diets. 100 years later, we're still on a mission to help unlock the power of plants and make it easier than ever to enjoy more fruit, vegetables, nuts, pulses and grains.
We know that eating well means different things to different people, but fundamentally we all know that eating more plants and whole foods is generally a good thing. Eating plant-based doesn't mean that you are vegetarian or vegan and never eat meat or dairy. Rather, you are choosing more of your foods from plant-based sources. Plant-based diets come in lots of shapes and sizes and you should choose the version that works for you. Whether you're vegan, flexitarian, pescatarian or just giving plant-based a go there's something for you.
The power of the Vitamix can deal with all parts of the vegetable and create a smooth soup packed with flavor and nutrients (you can even make some from raw ingredients to piping hot in five minutes flat). Adding plant-based proteins (like hemp or pea) to smoothies and legumes (beans, pulses) to soups helps make them more satisfying and sustains energy levels throughout the day.
Once you've got the hang of smoothies and soups, give non-dairy milks a try. It's not only more cost effective to make most non-dairy milks at home, you get to control what goes into them. That means skipping additives like thickeners and preservatives and limited the sugar content.
Plant-Based Goodness Round the Clock
Eating mostly or entirely plant-based doesn't mean limiting your creative potential in the kitchen. Vitamix makes sauces, dips, spreads, and burgers easy to throw together when you want weekday goodness on the table, fast.
Try adding some of our delicious plant-based sauces and mains into your weekly repertoire to help the whole family enjoy a wide variety of vegetables.
Not many blenders can pulverize almonds into smooth, spreadable almond butter or make a super smooth and creamy dairy free sauce or punchy pesto - but with Vitamix, plant-based sauces from scratch are fast, easy, and full of whole-food ingredients. You can also get more from your vegetables - blending them from root to stem - reducing waste and boosting nutrition.
Try a few of the recipes below, and you'll start to see how Vitamix can make vegetables the main event on your dinner table.

Enjoy Fun Food the Plant-Based Way
When starting out, many people turn to plant-based convenience food like ready meals and dairy free sweet treats in the belief that because it's vegan it must be the healthy option. This isn't always the case and usually it's far better to make your own versions. There are so many ways in which the Vitamix blender can help you do this.
This week we're going to show you some ways to use your Vitamix to make amazing plant-based alternatives to store bought treats. We even have a dairy-free cheese covered - one of the top foods that people who go fully plant-based miss the most.
Featuring fun plant-based mains, snacks and delicious desserts that are way better than shop bought.
