I have been using my Vitamix for many years now and it is one of my favourite kitchen appliances. Being good quality and high powered I use it to make soups, sauces, pesto, dips, desserts and more. You can find out more about the Vitamix here

  • *Use natural sweeteners such as rice malt syrup, honey, maple syrup or coconut nectar. You can also use a handful of pitted medjool dates or sugar free natural alternatives such as stevia or monk fruit to taste.

    You can use the Vitamix Ascent series bowl instead of jug to make individual serves, simply use 1/4 of ingredients.

    Decorate with roasted and chopped macadamia nuts or almonds, or cacao nibs for a contrasting texture.
