Thank you to QVC for letting me sample their Vitamix to put together this review.
There’s a couple things about me that make the before-the-bus-morning-rush very difficult. One thing is that I do my best work at night after the kids go to bed, which means I go to bed late, which means waking up early is quite painful. The other thing is that I really like to make sure that my kids get some real food in their bellies, so while my kids prefer something easy and SUGARY, I really don’t feel comfortable with most conventional options.
When I find ways to pack veggies into common foods, and do it QUICKLY and EASILY, I am alllllll over that.
The last time I tried to make a veggie cream cheese spread, the vegetables were so chunky and I couldn’t get the texture right. I think it traumatized me. I actually remember the exact time that I made it, for my daughter’s 1st birthday– she just turned 6 a few days ago. Since then whenever I’ve had a hankering for some veggie-packed cream cheese I’d remember that crappy experience and have a change of heart.
BUT THIS, guys! This is anything but chunky. It’s so smooth and creamy, despite the fact that it has a few handfuls of raw fresh carrots in there.
My secret? Vitamix.
I suspect that most of you are already familiar with the Vitamix brand, and you either have one and are totally head over heels about it, or you’ve been watching for a sale so you could nab one for yourself. Amiright? The good news is that this week only, QVC is doing a huge sale on them!

And the pre-programmed settings let you add ingredients, press a button, and walk away–when you come back, your delectable concoction will be perfectly blended and ready to serve. On top of the easy-to-use options, two included cookbooks provide a little blending inspiration. From Vitamix.

The Vitamix story started in 1921 when William Grover Barnard began to travel across the United States to sell his innovative kitchen products. More than two decades later, in 1949, William’s son Bill introduced Vitamix to the nation during what was one of the first infomercials ever broadcast in the country. Mr. Barnard pitched his blender as a simple way for families to eat in a healthier manner.
Today, Vitamix is known as one of the market leaders in blending technology. The company has always stayed true to its core belief: offering durable and high-performing products at a fair price. Vitamix blenders are still designed and manufactured in Olmsted Township, Ohio, using both foreign and domestic components.
The best thing about this spread is that you can put your bagel in the toaster, throw the ingredients in the blender and it’ll be ready by the time your bagel pops up! Now that’s what I call a quick and easy breakfast solution!
