Title: Smooth Smoothies
Post by: judyg on November 22, 2011, 07:43:46 PM
I am thinking of buying a Vitamix blender. My primary use would be to make cold smoothies with icecubes, etc. I would like to add RASPBERRIES & FLAXSEEDS among other things, for their wonderful health benefits.  Would the Vitamix be able to crush these tiny seeds or would they end up making the smoothie a sand-like texture as my (cheaper) blender does now?

The Vitamix will without a doubt make the Smoothest Smoothie but there will still be some remaining texture from the Raspberry seeds but it won't be like sand. If you can, grind the Flax seed first for greater smoothness
