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. You don’t have to worry about throwing ice or frozen bananas in this blender, it LOVES to crush ice into smooth delicious beverages. It’s also great for making soups and are super easy to clean. 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.

I’m really excited about Starbucks’ new single serve coffee machine called Verismo. What makes this better than Keurig’s K-cup System is the fact that the Verismo can make espresso, brewed coffee and lattes. 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.
