Victoria Boutenko, author of Green for Life,  explains the difference between a Vita mix and a blender wonderfully by stating, “ A Vitamix is a high speed blender because the speed goes up to 240mph. That means that their blades don’t even have to be sharp; even if they were just dull metal sticks they could still liquefy anything.  In order to reach such performance, the Vitamix has a 2+ peak horsepower motor. Any other blender will blend the tough cellulose of greens only so long as its blades are sharp. However,  when the blades become dull, they just move around the pieces and may overheat.”

Think of blending as a liquid salad that allows you to consume copious amounts of greens rich in fiber and nutrients that you don’t have to chew- per say and blending allows the cellulose to be broken down which is where all the great stuff is!
