Vitamix Ice Cream

Vitamix Ice Cream Strawberry Ice CreamEating the same foods over and over while dieting is not much incentive to make healthy eating a lifestyle, but with a Vitamix blender there are so many different ways to combine healthy foods into something new and delicious—for example, Vitamix ice cream for those who can’t quite give up sweets. For recipes like these, a Vitamix vs. a juicer is a better option—while juicers are great for pulling out lots of vitamins, a Vitamix lets you pack all sorts of healthy ingredients into snacks like ice cream, increasing your nutrient intake and keeping you fuller longer. If you are committed to a Vitamix diet, try some of these healthy ice cream recipes, each with different benefits for different dieting styles:

GLUTEN FREE

  • Chocolate Ice Cream. Dieting doesn’t have to mean never enjoying the taste of chocolate again. Unsweetened cocoa powder gives this recipe an extra antioxidant boost, and you can tailor it to your tastes it by adding nuts, a few chocolate chips, or your favorite crunchy ingredient during the final few seconds of blending.
  • Apple Pie Ice Cream. It is so easy to do a healthy version of this classic American dessert. Just blend apples, apple juice concentrate, low fat vanilla yogurt and some spices for flavor. Add a banana to sweeten the recipe even more.

LOW FAT

  • Fall Freeze. This perfect autumn desert has all the flavor of spiced pumpkin pie, with extra smoothness from a little bit of cream cheese.
  • Mocha Mint Shake. Ice cream doesn’t have to just be for the summer. The warm mocha flavor and refreshing mint taste are a great treat even in the winter—especially if garnished with a festive piece of holiday candy.

NO SUGAR ADDED

  • Pineapple Freeze. Pineapples have so much natural sweetness, who needs extra sugar? This ice cream, which involves only pineapples, tofu, and lime juice, also happens to be a great source of protein and iron.
  • Vitamix Ice Cream Coffee Ice CreanBrandy Alexander. If you like sweet, blended cocktails, this treat is a great way to satisfy your craving without going overboard on the sugar. Try it using nonfat chocolate ice cream or frozen yogurt.

VEGAN

  • Green Apple Ice Cream. Just as with green smoothies, this ice cream recipe is a great way to sneak a few extra greens into your day. Apple juice concentrate and banana balance out the sweetness factor in this appetizing green treat.

Here are just a few of these great recipes for Vitamix soups:

GREEN SOUPS

If your goal is to slim down by eating healthy veggie soups, or you are on the Vitamix diet, here are a few recipes to try:

  • Winter Greens Soup. If you are a fan of the Vitamix green smoothie, you might enjoy this equally antioxidant-packed winter soup. Use your Vitamix to perfectly puree a sautéed mixture of spinach, kale, zucchini, celery, tomatoes and leek along with garlic and a few other spices—smooth, healthy and delicious.
  • Kale and Leek Soup. If you don’t have too many greens in the house, this simpler green soup recipe includes only kale and leek with a flavorful blend of spices. Throw half of the soup in the Vitamix for a smooth puree and mix in the rest from the stovetop for a unique blend of textures.

HEARTY SOUPS

Looking for something to warm you up during the cold months? Try these cozy options:

  • Harvest Cheddar Soup. For a warm and hearty fall flavor, try this creamy blend of cheese, potatoes, and vegetables with granny smith apples for tart kick. If you want to make this meal a little healthier, try pairing a small portion of the soup with fresh salad and a simple Vitamix vinaigrette.
  • Corn Chowder. This classic soup features a creamy blend of potatoes and other fall flavors, with the crunchy addition of some fresh corn cooked on the stovetop for a texture twist.

EASY SOUPS

Too tired to spend much time over the stove after work? Luckily, there are plenty of easy options that are much more healthy and interested than a heated up can of whatever is in your pantry:

  • Japanese Miso-Shiitake Soup. For a quick but unique Vitamix soup, try this blend of mushrooms, ginger, garlic and scallions, spiced with miso and soy sauce—takes only six minutes to prepare and blend!
  • Gazpacho. This chilled soup takes just sixteen minutes to make, and most of the ingredients are probably already in your kitchen. Blend together some fresh vegetables including tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and onions, with a bit of hot sauce for flavor. This soup can also be served over more chopped vegetables for some added crunch.
