Top 10 Gifts For Health Nuts

1. Vitamix Blender

For those veggie or fruit smoothie lovers – the Vitamix Blender will be their best friend. This blender’s popularity stems from the fact that it will crush anything.

Much easier to clean than a juicer. There are many models of the Vitamix brand. We recommend the Vitamix Professional 750 Series so that you are certain you get the heavy duty blending power. The cheaper non-professional Vitamix blenders are great blenders, but cannot handle frozen bananas like the 750 Pro series can.

Don’t get me wrong, I own a Keurig brewing system and I am thoroughly addicted to the crazy amount of variety of coffees available. My favorite K-Cup flavors are the Millstone Hazelnut Cream and the Folgers Vanilla Biscotti – but I digress. The new Verismo can also make lattes! Starbucks has also released their Milk Pods along with their array of coffee pods.
