where I can not tell they are in there?

With all the blenders I have owned, I always have the seeds remain in my smoothies. Actually, they do not bother me...much LOL. I would love to have a smoothie without the seeds sometimes, however :D

Guess I will find out in about 10 days or so when my VM gets here...but would like to be prepared, so knowing ahead of time would be great.

Thanks!

My Vitamix does a good job of pulverizing seeds in berries. But the truth is they don't disappear completely, there is always a little bit of texture from them in my smoothies.

It's still a HUGE difference from my other blender - I just avoided using any berries with seeds for my smoothies.

Thanks Dreamer :)

My Kitchen Aid did not do any better than the Magic Bullet I have been using, but I think red raspberries are so good for me that I put up with the seeds. If they are reduced at all it will be a plus!

Thanks again!

First of all... welcome and congratulations on investing in you health with the purchase of a Vitamix!

If you have made smoothies with raspberries in it in a common kitchen blender you will be pleasantly surprised upon making one in a Vitamix.

Most people have no idea there are seeds in it. To a refined palette it is possible to notice a minor texture but it by no means feels like a seed. If your smoothie contains other hard texture/roughage ingredients (like chia seed, dried goji, pears...) any raspberries seeds will be completely unnoticed.

One way to reduce any hint of seed texture even more is to make your blend with frozen raspberries and blend with minimal liquid.

Enjoy your Vitamix!
