I bought my first Vitamixer in 2006, but my mom bought one when I was like 13, so I have been around on most of my life. I love the vanilla ice cream, it is so good. I think will will love it more and more as you use it.

After 5 years of wanting one but talking myself out of it based on the price, I finally went out yesterday and bought my very first Vitamix. I am in love with the thing.
I have been trying to ween myself off of dairy and sugar for more than a year now. I do ok, but my biggest challenge has been my morning cup of coffee. I just can't give it up. I put milk & sugar in my ooffee…I like it very sweet. Most days I find that when I start the day with sugar and dairy it is much easier to make excuses to continue to consume them throughout the day.
I have tried a million different recipes and a million different kitchen appliances/methods but I have never been able to create an acceptable substitution for my morning coffee.
Through all of this testing I did discover that I like dates for my natural sweetener. The problem has been that with my blender, my food processor, my immersion blender or whatever other gadget I tried I could never get the dates completely blended into the drink, and who want to drink a coffee smoothie with chunks of dates in it? Not me!
So I get my shiny new Vitamix home yesterday and the first thing I made was a coffee smoothie. No chunks! Not even any little bits! You don't even know that the dates are in there, but the sweetness and the flavor are spot-on for my taste!
Now I'm hoping to add more fruit/vegetable smoothies into my diet as well. I enjoy the nutrition of these drinks but have always had an issue with the consistency.
