It’s something that I have used since starting The Earth Diet, and one of the most useful kitchen tools to assist us in living a consistently healthy lifestyle. It’s one of the best investments you will ever make!


To simplify it, I recommend these machines to choose from:

You can buy a Vitamix for as little at $249.

Or the classic machine the LEGACY SERIES from $359

Or the newest machine the Ascent Series Blender from $399.95

But what most people don’t know is that you can buy a refurbished Vitamix machine at a discounted rate! They are a certified reconditioned machine from $329.95 (usually). These machines still come with a 5-year warranty. A reconditioned Vitamix is a good value, a smart choice. They work just like new! The container is always brand new, and Vitamix ensures that they are as good as new.

Why are there refurbished Vitamix machines? Because they were used at demos, photo shoots or returned by their owner. The most important thing is if anything happens to be wrong with your machine, Vitamix will take care of it for you, at no cost to you. If you are still having trouble deciding Vitamix can help you out with a machine by their blender recommendation here.

People often ask, if they can buy just a few things to get them started in living a healthy lifestyle what would it be? I would say you only really need 2 machiines to be able to live this lifestyle successfully. A blender link the Vitamix and a juice machine! However, a Vitamix can make a juice, if you strain the pulp.


  1. Warranty! Vitamix machines come with epic warranties, usually 5-7 years warranty is included, and you can also add a few more years for a small price. Vitamix machines are built to last and give us the best value for our money.
  2. You can pick the colors to match your kitchen! They come in red, gray/silver, black or white.
  3. I’ve never had any problems with my Vitamix machine over the past 8 years, and I have had zero complaints from any of my readers.
  4. They are so easy to clean! It takes a quick rinse! Just fill the Vitamix with soap and water once you are done making a recipe and then give it a whirl for a couple minutes and Wala it’s clean!

For me it’s a no brainer, I know you are going to use it! And it will motivate you to want to make healthier delicious recipes.


You pay for what you get! Nothing is like the Vitamix, and you simply must try it to know what I mean. The Vitamix not only makes smoothies, but it makes desserts, butters, sauces, hummus, dips, cake batters, and makes hot things like soups. The Vitamix literally pulverizes things to make them so smooth and creamy. The Vitamix can achieve precise textures that I have not been able to get from other blenders or food processors.

Total time:

3 hours to soak nuts, 25 minutes preparation, 2 hours freezing

For the Base
4 cups almond meal

For the Cheeseckae Filling:
¼ cup lemon juice (approximiately 1 large lemon)

6 tablespoons maple syrup (or raw honey)
6 tablespoons coconut oil
½ tablespoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt


  1. Make the base. In a bowl, combine the almond meal and maple syrup (or honey). The mixture should be dry but moist enough to hold together.
  2. Turn the base mixture into a deep pie dish (large enough to hold 2½ quarts) and press it evenly to cover the bottom and sides of dish. Set aside.
  3. Make the cheesecake filling. Put all the ingredients in a powerful blender and blend until filling is very smooth and light. Pour the filling into the prepared crust.
  4. Freeze for 2 hours. Once set, cut into slices and serve.

Makes 2 cups, serves 32 (1 tablespoon serving size)

Almond Butter keeps in a jar with a shelf life of one month unrefrigerated. In the fridge, it is good for three months.

3 cups raw or roasted almonds

Add the almonds to a food processor. (A food processor with a 5-blade works best; a blender will not work well for this recipe.) Blend on high 20-30 minutes. The nuts will first become almond meal. Then, after about 15 or 20 minutes, the nut meal will release oils and eventually become a smooth almond butter – no other ingredient needed! It literally transforms from a dry meal into a smooth butter.


  1. Substitute peanuts for the almonds for Peanut Butter.
  2. Substitute walnuts for the almonds for Walnut Butter.
  3. Substitute macadamias for almonds for Macadamia Butter.
  4. Substitute cashew for almonds for Cashew Butter.
  5. Substitute Brazil nuts for almonds for Brazil Nut Butter.
  6. Substitute pecans for almonds for Pecan Butter.
  7. Substitute hazelnuts for Hazelnut Butter.
  8. Add 1 teaspoon of raw honey or maple syrup for Sweet Almond Butter.
  9. Add 1 teaspoon of cacao powder for Chocolate Almond Butter.

A lot of my recipes are extremely simple to make, and you can often just use a bowl and spoon, however some of them require whipping, especially to achieve that creamy, creamy, creamy texture we want for a Cashew Cheesecake or Ice Cream.
